The early odds at BetUS are our for Super Bowl 58, so why not get an early start predicting the outcome of a football game more than 11 months away?
It should come as no surprise that the reigning champions Kansas City Chiefs, are favored to win it all again. However, other placements on the odds board present potential for us to wager upon.
If there was any doubt about who the best team in the NFL is, the Chiefs made it pretty clear when they beat the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 on a last-second field goal. Should they succeed, the Chiefs would become the first team since the 2004 New England Patriots to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles.
The Chiefs may shift some pieces around, but the core three of Andy Reid, Patrick Mahomes, and Travis Kelce will be back to defend the crown. Rookie running back Isiah Pacheco had a breakout year and is expected to contribute a lot in 2023.
With the win, Mahomes became the first NFL MVP in nine years to win the Super Bowl years and cemented himself as a legend in Kansas City.
The Bills belong here based on their roster if nothing else. That doesn’t change the fact that the Bills continue to get stuck in the mud when playoff time hits. Despite making the playoffs five of the last six seasons, the Bills haven’t made it past the AFC Championship Game.
The conference is so competitive that the Bills can’t get past the Chiefs or, more recently, the Cincinnati Bengals, to even compete in a Super Bowl.
The Eagles lost a heartbreaker on Sunday and joined the 2016 Atlanta Falcons as the only teams in Super Bowl history to lose when leading at halftime by double digits. The 2016 Falcons are not a team you want to be alongside on any Super Bowl list.
The Eagles will have to navigate some expiring contracts as Fletcher Cox, Brandon Graham, Javon Hargrave, Jason Kelce, and James Bradberry are all set to become free agents.
Considering Philly was one penalty away from potentially winning the Super Bowl, these odds are a steal.
The 49ers had one hell of a season. They lost two starting quarterbacks but rode the last pick in the 2022 NFL Draft to the NFC Championship Game, where it all fell apart. The 49ers are a good team with a ton of talent. But, without a clear starting quarterback heading into 2023, are they worthy of a top-four spot on the Super Bowl 58 odds board?
