With the 2021 NFL Draft in the books, it is time to start looking at Super Bowl odds for every team. Rosters are taking shape and rookies are set, so Super Bowl 56 odds are getting more and more realistic. There will obviously be more moves made, but here are 2022 Super Bowl odds for every team (provided by SportsLine), as they are constructed now.
The Chiefs have been the AFC’s representative in the past two Super Bowls, winning in 2020. They still have Patrick Mahomes, a great receiving core and now a completely revamped offensive line. This team should be favored.
Tampa Bay won Super Bowl 55 and against all odds, brought back every single player from their championship season. Add to that their new rookies and more experienced sophomore players and it makes sense on paper that they could win it all again.
Coming off of their first AFC East championship since 1995, the Bills are ready to unseat the Chiefs. If Josh Allen runs back his MVP-level play from last season, this team will be one of the biggest threats to Kansas City. The defense also should get better this year. They have earned the third-best Super Bowl odds, but it will put a newly-painted target on their back.
Baltimore is still short at wide receiver, but the team remains well-coached and dangerous. This offense can burn teams in almost every imaginable way and the options are endless with dual-threat quarterback Lamar Jackson. The Ravens’ main hurdle to clear in 2021 is their inability to come from behind. If they can do that, then the playoffs could end up being a breeze, which explains these high odds.
The Rams lost their defensive coordinator to their stadium “roommate,” the Los Angeles Chargers. It is unclear how much that will hurt one of the league’s best defenses, but it might take a while to click. On the other end, they have upgraded at quarterback by adding Matthew Stafford. These changes may balance each other out, but a Super Bowl appearance/championship is a lofty goal. The odds seem high for a team with big question marks.
In an incredibly aggressive move, the 49ers drafted a quarterback by trading up for the third overall selection only one year removed from a Super Bowl appearance. But this team is so dangerous on both sides of the ball, the only way their odds fall is if San Francisco rushes Trey Lance into action and he totally stinks. Even then, they can put Jimmy Garappolo back in.
Oddsmakers are clearly betting on Aaron Rodgers remaining in Green Bay for the 2021-2022 season. If the MVP does return, then the offense will likely only get better. Aaron Jones was retained, Davante Adams will be healthy and Robert Tonyan has another year under his belt. The offensive line is one of the best in the league and their defense is getting a re-work. Their first and second round picks both addressed immediate needs, also. With the talent at most every position on the roster, these odds should perhaps be higher.
Cleveland is replete with talent at every position. With the secondary being addressed in the offseason and the draft, there really is no hole in this roster. Super Bowl odds for the Browns are likely lower than they seem like they should be due to their tough division.
Sure, the Broncos’ defense is very nice and their skill positions are good, but this team has a big question mark at quarterback. They have fine options but lack Super Bowl-level talent at the sport’s most important positions. Taking these odds at +2000 would be a bad bet.
If Carson Wentz returns to his 2017 form then this team could make a deep playoff run. The Colts’ defense is up and coming and the offense gets a boon by reuniting Wentz with his old coordinator Frank Reich. The AFC is tough, though, so these odds seem accurate.
Losing a player like Drew Brees would throw any team for a loop. The offense is going to look much different, but the defense is still stout. Jameis Winston will have to put up his 2019 Tampa Bay numbers while cutting his interceptions in half (at least) for this team to reach the Super Bowl, though.
Having Seattle’s odds this high speaks to respect for Russell Wilson’s talent and Pete Carroll’s coaching ability. Apart from those two people and some talent in the receiving core, the Seahawks do not have much to hang their hat on.
Clearly some oddsmakers think Tua Tagovailoa will take a huge jump in his second year at the helm for the Dolphins. Miami’s defense is schemed incredibly and coached even better and their offense is dangerous at times, if Tagovailoa is on. He will have to be much more consistent to reach the Super Bowl this year, though.
Dak Prescott will be back from a gruesome ankle injury and hopefully pick up where he left off. He was on track for a 6,000-yard season, which would stand alone in the annals of NFL history. The problem with the Cowboys is their defense, which was one of the NFL’s worst. It may not have gotten much better in the offseason. If Dallas wins the Super Bowl then there must have been a bunch of 40-plus point performances by the offense.
Ryan Tannehill has very quietly become one of the most impressive quarterbacks in the NFL. His performances are consistently buried underneath so many 200-yard rushing performances by Derrick Henry. If Tennesee’s defense takes the step up that the organization thinks it should, then these odds should be higher.
Bill Belichick was only a few plays away from a nine-win season with a really underwhelming and hamstring roster last season. Cam Newton returns to compete with new rookie quarterback Mac Jones with some new blood on the offensive roster. All in all though, there are two better teams in the Patriots’ own division. Their current odds are respect for Belichick and little else.
Again, these odds are higher than they should be out of respect for an organization. The Steelers’ offensive line is among the worst in the league and their already underwhelming rushing attack might get worse in 2021. Mix in an aging Ben Roethlisberger that will not have the protection to throw deep and it equals out to Super Bowl 56 odds that are too generous.
If Brandon Staley proves to be the head coach that the Chargers’ front office hopes he is, then these odds may prove to be laughably low. The offensive line is rebuilt and terrific, a record-setting rookie (Justin Herbert) now has a year under his belt and the weapons are great. Plus, Staley can get the most out of this defense.
The Cardinals added J.J. Watt and A.J. Green to a roster that already featured Chandler Jones and DeAndre Hopkins. That alone should boost these odds. It appears oddsmakers are either scared of Kingsbury’s coaching ability or Kyler Murray taking a step back.
Minnesota remained stagnant in a division that is fraught with change in the 2021 offseason. Kirk Cousins may lead this team to the playoffs, but there is not enough special talent on this roster to lead them to the Super Bowl.
Keep an eye on these odds, as they will change after the Falcons trade Julio Jones, which they will be forced to do. Kyle Pitts is a good addition, but a team turning over a new leaf with a new regime does not deserve high Super Bowl odds.
When will Justin Fields play? How good will he be? These are the questions hanging over oddsmakers for the Bears. As Andy Dalton remains the named starter, middle-of-the-pack odds seem correct for a team with a very large question mark hanging over it.
Washington Football Team (+5000)
Ron Rivera has turned the Washington front seven, led by Chase Young, into one of the most feared in the NFL. The offense is being led by 17-year veteran journeyman Ryan Fitzpatrick, though. This team needs to get more dynamic at quarterback before being taken seriously in the Super Bowl discussion.
These are very high odds for a team in the thick of a total overhaul. Sam Darnold was acquired as the Panthers bet on his talent not being unlocked during his time in New York. This team has close to no shot in the NFC South division, though.
The Raiders are consistently slept on and +7000 proves that. Derek Carr is not a bad quarterback, their rushing attack is now bolstered with Kenyan Drake being the second-fiddle to Josh Jacobs and the defense is not nearly as bad as teams like the Cowboys and Seahawks, who both have much higher odds.
Vegas clearly has doubts about Daniel Jones. This offense is absolutely stacked with weapons at every single position. The defense is up-and-coming and their coach is proving to not shrink in the bright lights of the New York market. If Daniel Jones performs well, these odds will climb.
Jalen Hurts seems to be a fine quarterback, but the rest of this team is such a mystery. The Eagles have new coach that might be over his skis and a defense that has a good line and not much else. However low these odds seem, they could end up looking high by the end of the season.
Cincinnati is not in even contention for the AFC North, let alone the Super Bowl. Joe Burrow should improve with his old running mate in Ja’Marr Chase. But the line is bad, the defense lost its best player and the coach may not be right.
The hype around Trevor Lawrence is blinding, especially when combined with three-time college football champion coach Urban Meyer. But this is a year dedicated to finding out exactly what this team needs to start contending.
Jets fans are hoping Zach Wilson’s talent is not wasted like Sam Darnold’s was. New coach Robert Saleh will really improve the defense, but the offense is too big of a mess to take any kind of seriously. Winning two games in their own division should be New York’s biggest goal this year.
The Lions’ offensive line could end up being one of the best in the NFL this year. Being that Jared Goff needs time and a clean pocket to be productive, these odds might be way too low. They will not sniff the Super Bowl, but they may not be worst team in the league.
Houston is in complete turmoil. The defense is bad, the weapons have all left and their quarterback may either refuse to play, or not be able to due to legal or NFL-sanctioned restrictions. Their odds should be the lowest of any team.
