Best Bets to Win Super Bowl LVII

Favorite: Kansas City Chiefs (+335)

So long as the duo of Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes are around, it’s impossible to count the Chiefs out. After landing the top seed and securing the coveted bye week that comes with it, Kansas City is firmly in the driver’s seat and rightfully the favorite to emerge from the stacked AFC Playoffs bracket.

Of course, the cast of characters around Mahomes has changed a bit since the last time the Chiefs reached the Super Bowl. That hasn’t stopped them from winning a whole lot of football games though. In fact, the willingness of the front office to sign cheaper but still very effective playmakers has resulted in a roster that is arguably deeper and even more dangerous than the teams of the recent past.

From star tight end Travis Kelce to free-agent additions like JuJu Smith-Schuster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Mahomes has no shortage of weapons at his disposal in the passing game. The Chiefs also pose a greater threat on the ground than in recent years thanks to the emergence of rookie running back Isaiah Pacheco.

Kansas City’s success in the NFL Draft shows up even more vividly on the defensive side of the ball. Linebackers Nick Bolton and Willie Gay, nickelback L’Jarius Snead and pass-rusher Georgie Karlaftis have all been drafted within the last three years! Oh, and let’s not forget that the Chiefs are also starting a pair of rookie corners in Trent McDuffie and Joshua Williams.

With a free pass into the Divisional Round, plenty of talent on both sides of the ball and the best coaching staff in the league, the Chiefs are more than deserving of their status as the Super Bowl odds favorite.

Darkhorse Contender: Dallas Cowboys (+1400)

To be clear, the irony of declaring America’s Team a “darkhorse contender” wasn’t lost on me. Then again, it’s hard to ignore the fact that oddsmakers have left the Cowboys’ Super Bowl odds dangling at an enticing price of 14-1.

Dallas has a complete bozo in Mike McCarthy serving as its head coach and a quarterback in Dak Prescott who is extremely difficult to trust. Despite these two unattractive components, there is still reason to like the Cowboys in the Super Bowl betting futures market.

So long as Prescott can get the ball into the hands of star skill players like CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard, the offense figures to be just fine. What’s more, if the Cowboys’ defense can tighten things up following a lackluster finish to the regular season, it may not take many points to win. Entering Week 18, Dallas ranked second in adjusted defensive efficiency according to Football Outsiders.

Finally, the fact that Dallas plays in the NFC will also serve to their benefit in the 2023 NFL Playoffs as the conference lacks any dominant teams. The San Francisco 49ers have the shortest Super Bowl odds of any NFC team. However, barring any upsets, the soonest that the Cowboys would have to face San Francisco would be in the NFC Championship Game.

Longshot Hopeful: Baltimore Ravens (+4000)

After losing three of their final four games, the Ravens don’t exactly come into the NFL Playoffs with much momentum. The caveat to the late-season swoon was the absence of star quarterback Lamar Jackson, who has been sidelined for over a month with a knee injury.

It pretty much goes without saying that any chance Baltimore has of making a run depends on Jackson returning to the lineup. Rust could be a factor initially as he has not played or practiced since suffering the PCL strain. However, his sheer presence also figures to provide a jolt of life to a Ravens team that, when healthy, is capable of competing against even the best teams in the AFC.

Despite having various players in and out of the lineup due to injuries, the defense remains a force. With Roquan Smith and Patrick Queen roaming the middle and Kyle Hamilton anchoring the secondary, it’s no wonder that Baltimore ranked eighth in the NFL in adjusted defensive efficiency. John Harbaugh also made the decision to rest both running back J.K. Dobbins and tight end Mark Andrews in Week 18 to ensure that they would be healthy for the Wild Card Round.

When it comes down to it, Baltimore is statistically on par with several teams who are viewed as the top contenders in the Super Bowl odds. As such, the Ravens are worth a play at 40-1 odds to win it all. At the very least, opportunities to hedge will undoubtedly arise.
