Super Bowl Futures Betting: Post-Draft Edition
An awful lot has changed since the last time we checked in on each team's odds of winning the next Super Bowl back in February. There have been retirements (and un-retirements), free agency, blockbuster trades, and of course the NFL Draft.
With all this water under the bridge, it seemed an appropriate time to check on the latest odds on offer at the FanDuel SportsBook, one of a host of markets available to those who enjoy a little something extra on the action.
|Team||Super Bowl Odds |
(as of 3/5/22)
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+750|
|Kansas City Chiefs||+950|
|Los Angeles Rams||+1100|
|Green Bay Packers||+1100|
|San Francisco 49ers||+1600|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+1600|
|New England Patriots||+4000|
|Las Vegas Raiders||+4000|
|New Orleans Saints||+4400|
|New York Giants||+8000|
|New York Jets||+15000|
Back in February, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were available at +2200. Their massive drop in price can mostly be explained by the decision made by Tom Brady to end his retirement after just over six weeks, returning the team to the top of the list of contenders in a very weak-looking NFC.
The Buffalo Bills are the current favorites to win their first Super Bowl on the back of their explosive offense led by Josh Allen and a talented defense augmented by free agent signing Von Miller.
The Kansas City Chiefs, on the back of four consecutive AFC title game appearances, are third in the pecking order behind the Bills and the Bucs at +950, while the defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams are tied with fellow NFC regular-season powerhouses the Green Bay Packers at +1100.
As for the teams at the other end of the market, it should surprise no one that the bookies rate the Houston Texans as being the team least likely to be hoisting the Vince Lombardi at the end of the 2022 season. Their odds actually increased from +18000 in February to +22000 at the beginning of May after they finally ended the Deshaun Watson era and traded him away to the Cleveland Browns. This acquisition did little to increase the Browns' title odds; Kevin Stefanski's outfit is available at +1900 from +2200 three months ago.
The Texans are joined in the doldrums by perennial cellar-dwellers the New York Jets and the Detroit Lions. But, the Atlanta Falcons actually have the second-longest odds of all 32 teams at +18000.
Also, not far away from the teams that may be thinking of the first overall pick next year rather than the Super Bowl, come the Seattle Seahawks. With odds of +10000, this must be their longest pre-season odds for many a year. Still, that's what trading away Russell Wilson will do for you, I suppose.
