Super Bowl 54 Futures Odds
As the New England Patriots continue to celebrate their sixth Super Bowl title, the oddsmakers are already looking ahead to Super Bowl 54.
The Super Bowl 54 futures odds have already been posted at Bovada Sportsbook and in a move that will surprise no one, the Patriots are the favorite to capture another Vince Lombardi Trophy. New England is listed at +650 on the Super Bowl futures, and as long as Bill Belichick and Tom Brady are calling the shots, that shouldn’t change.
There are a couple of possible changes in New England this offseason that bettors should keep an eye on. The annual Rob Gronkowski retirement rumors have started and if the Patriots tight end does call it quits, it would leave a hole in their receiving corps. Among the key free agents for New England are Trey Flowers, Malcolm Brown and Chris Hogan.
Following the Patriots on the Super Bowl futures are last season’s runners-up, the Los Angeles Rams, at +700. The Rams forgot how to score in Super Bowl 53 but with a talented young roster led by Jared Goff and Todd Gurley, they remain a legitimate Super Bowl contender. Like New England, they have a few key names that could depart as free agents, including Ndamukong Suh, LaMarcus Joyner and Dante Fowler Jr.
Rounding out the rest of the top five on the Super Bowl futures are three other playoff teams from last year, with the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargers both at +800 and the New Orleans Saints at +1000.
Chiefs, Chargers, Saints next on oddsboard
The Chiefs look like they could be contenders for years behind MVP Patrick Mahomes. However, they have to figure out what their running game will look like after last year’s split with Kareem Hunt, and the defense remains a big question mark.
The Chargers may be running out of time to get Philip Rivers a Super Bowl title. The 37-year-old quarterback will get most of his offensive targets back this season, but if they weren’t enough to get over the hump last season, what will the Chargers do to improve?
The Saints may have had their best shot at a Super Bowl title ripped away by the refs last season. Drew Brees still has something left in the tank, but the Saints’ balanced rushing attack could take a hit if free agent Mark Ingram departs.
Bears, Browns offer early value picks
If you’re looking for some early value picks on the Super Bowl odds, a few standouts include the Chicago Bears at +1200 and the Cleveland Browns at +3000. Chicago surprised everyone last year by winning the NFC North and most of its starters are signed for next year. The Browns won five of their last seven games last season behind Baker Mayfield. After decades of failure, things could finally be turning around in Cleveland.
