The start of the NFL season may be months away, but that is not stopping anyone from talking about the country’s favorite sport. Looking ahead to the upcoming season is a great way to build anticipation. It can also make you a lot of money by predicting the Super Bowl champion long before the season starts. While every team is still finalizing their roster, these are the four teams with the best odds to win the Super Bowl next year.
Kansas City Chiefs
They may have come up a little short this season, but the Kansas City Chiefs are once again favored to win it all. The dynamic offense led by Patrick Mahomes ensures Kansas City can beat any team. The offensive line was a significant weakness in the Super Bowl, but the Chiefs have already addressed this problem by signing Joe Thuney to a five-year deal. It takes a lot of guts to bet against the best quarterback in the league.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The reigning champions have the second-best Super Bowl odds at the moment. There is simply no one better at winning big games than Tom Brady. Despite having limited salary cap space, the Buccaneers could resign all of their essential defensive players and star wide receiver Chris Godwin. Tampa Bay will be strong contenders, but it is far too difficult to repeat as champions in the NFL.
Kansas City’s biggest competition in the AFC is going to come from the Buffalo Bills. Quarterback Josh Allen finally put it all together, and he will only get better in the future. The Buffalo roster will not change much in the offseason, so their title hopes rest solely on the maturation of the quarterback. It will likely take another year or two before the Bills are serious competition for the Chiefs.
Green Bay Packers
Outside of the Buccaneers, the NFC does not have any other elite teams. The Green Bay Packers get a slight edge over the rest of the conference because they have Aaron Rodgers. The easier path to the Super Bowl makes the Packers the best value bet for your money. The window is closing for Rodgers, so he will undoubtedly do his best to get one more title.
