NFL Betting: Super Bowl 55 Futures Odds
With Super Bowl 54 in the books and the Kansas City Chiefs celebrating their first championship in 50 years, the oddsmakers are already looking ahead with the release of Super Bowl 55 futures odds.
At Bovada Sportsbook, the Chiefs are favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champs at +600. Kansas City should return almost its entire Super Bowl-winning roster next season, with only defensive end Chris Jones among high-profile free agents. With Patrick Mahomes leading the offense, the Chiefs should be Super Bowl contenders for years to come.
Following the Chiefs on the Super Bowl futures are their Super Bowl 54 opponents, the San Francisco 49ers, and the Baltimore Ravens, both at +800.
The 49ers have a few notable free agents in wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and linebacker Arik Armstead, but their big weapons Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle remain in the fold as well as most of their strong defense.
Ravens, MVP Jackson +800 to win Super Bowl 55
The Ravens and their fans should be eager to see what Lamar Jackson can do for an encore following a breakout MVP season. The only way Jackson could be any better is by leading the Ravens to a championship.
Rounding out the top five on the Super Bowl futures are the New Orleans Saints at +1000 and the New England Patriots at +1100. Both teams could see their odds drop considerably if their veteran quarterbacks don’t return.
For the Saints, their contender status could depend on the future of quarterback Drew Brees. According to reports, Brees is expected to decide in the next couple of months if he’ll return for another season or retire. New Orleans still has Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara regardless, but it would be strange seeing a quarterback other than Brees leading the Saints.
Patriots at +1100 pending Tom Brady decision
The same goes for New England and Tom Brady. Brady has said he wants to continue playing but will that be in New England? If the unthinkable does happen and Brady is wearing a different jersey next season, it would likely have a big effect on the Patriots’ odds even though they play in a weak division.
The Super Bowl odds for a few other notable teams include the Dallas Cowboys at +1800 and the Tennessee Titans at +3000.
The Cowboys were a massive disappointment last season when they missed the playoffs. They have some big-name free agents in quarterback Dak Prescott, wide receiver Amari Cooper and cornerback Byron Jones.
The Titans made it to the AFC championship game but still find themselves far down the Super Bowl futures. One reason may be that quarterback Ryan Tannehill and NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry are both free agents.
