Early Best Bets for Super Bowl 57

Early Best Bets for Super Bowl 57

The Los Angles Rams ended up winning Super Bowl 56, over the Cincinnati Bengals, in California. It was the second straight season that the winning Super Bowl team was able to play on their home field for the Super Bowl. It’s just a coincidence. Don’t get lost in crazy conspiracy theories!

Anyway, with Tom Brady announcing his retirement and Aaron Rodgers potentially retiring or moving teams, there’s a lot to dissect this off-season.

There are a ton of interesting free agents available for many teams and so many coaches have now changed teams. It’s been hard to keep up. with all of the coaching moves, but overall, it seems like most teams are going to be better off with their coaching moves.

Currently, via FanDuel Sportsbook, the Buffalo Bills are essentially the favorites to win Super Bowl 57, at +700 odds. Meanwhile, the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, and Green Bay Packers are right behind them. Once the Rodgers news is officially announced, you’d have to assume the Packers’ chances of winning the Super Bowl dwindle.

Buffalo Bills (+700)

The Buffalo Bills were easily one of the best teams in the NFL this season. Buffalo watched Josh Allen really adapt as a passer and watched a defense put together some incredible games against a lot of great talent, including a big-time performance against Patrick Mahomes during the regular season.

However, in the postseason, the defense couldn’t get stops at the end of the game, and Josh Allen was never given a chance to make the Super Bowl. We all know what the defense is capable of and the Bills would clearly like another chance at ending the game on the defensive end. But they’ll get better and be more hungry moving forward.

The Bills offense scored 20 touchdowns rushing and 36 more in the passing game, accumulating 57 total touchdowns on the offensive end. Buffalo is dangerous and should be hard to beat next season.

Los Angeles Rams (+1200)

Nobody likes repeats, but it looks like all of the superstars for the Rams will be running it back next year. The Rams won’t have any draft picks for quite some time and need to win Super Bowls during the time that they don’t have any draft picks. Think of the Rams like the Lakers, only the Rams’ old talent will actually perform a little bit better.

Matthew Stafford doesn’t have a whole lot of years left to play quarterback and young head coach Sean McVay is already contemplating retirement along with Aaron Donald and Von Miller. So it’s basically a championship or bust for the Rams. At 1200, there’s value for the reigning and defending champions. This team was absolutely elite last year and kind of peaked at the perfect time.

Los Angeles Chargers (+2400)

I raved about the Bills scoring 57 offensive touchdowns. But did you know that’s the Chargers scored 58 total touchdowns on the offensive end, including 38 in the air, with Justin Herbert under center?

Herbert continues to develop and many people aren’t talking him up mainly because Joe Burrow just made the Super Bowl. If the Chargers can get better on the defensive end, Los Angeles could be playing Los Angeles in the Super Bowl next year. The Chargers are really shaping up to be a win-now team and with Herbert starting to get into his prime, things can get scary with the Chargers this season.

It’s time for the young guns to take over and Herbert is absolutely in that conversation with young guns, including Joe Burrow, of course. He’ll get Mike Williams back and have a huge target to throw to. That’ll help him rack yards and put together game-winning drives to potentially get into the Super Bowl.
