Chiefs are betting favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl, and next year’s too

With four teams remaining in contention to win Super Bowl LIV, the Chiefs are the favorites. And with 32 teams in contention to win Super Bowl LV, the Chiefs are the favorites to win next year, too.

The current odds at Caesars Sportsbook have the Chiefs as 11-10 favorites to win this year’s Super Bowl. They’re followed by the 49ers at 7-5, the Titans at 15-2 and the Packers at 17-2.

But perhaps more interesting is what the odds say for next year, when the Chiefs are favored again: Their odds are currently 6-1, followed by the Ravens at 7-1, the 49ers at 8-1, the Saints at 11-1 and the Patriots at 14-1.

It’s unsurprising that the oddsmakers are high on the Chiefs. As long as Patrick Mahomes is healthy, they’re going to be a popular pick to win the Super Bowl. The folks in Kansas City have a lot of reasons to be optimistic about the future of their franchise.

  1. Rooting for the Titans, great story. But can’t help but think we will seeing Chiefs-49ers in Miami. Which, is actually pretty exciting too

  2. Hey guys, remember me? It’s me, Patrick Mahomes. You know, the guy with the rocket arm that can actually throw the football. It sure was fun flying under the radar this year with all that cute Lamar Jackson talk – but you can catch me at the AFC championship game and possibly the Super Bowl in the next few weeks. Love, Patrick ❤️

  3. What’s crazy about the NFL is no one picked these 4 to be the last 4. Maybe Kansas City, but probably not the other 3. Of course I want San Fran to win this week and the Superbowl, but if they don’t, i wouldn’t be upset that the other 3 could be the winners. It’s nice to shake it up a little bit.

  4. Next year Ravens are second at 7-1… Based on what? With this QB they are 0-2 and have been embarrassed twice in their opening round playoff games.

  5. Tennesssee was 60-1 at the beginning of the season just like the 2001 Patriots were. Would be a nice cash for someone if they go all the way.

  6. I don’t know. I’ve learned my lesson about counting out the Patriots. Sure, they’re out of the playoffs now, but who’s to say what can happen in the next 2 weeks?

  7. I have some bias involved, but I would think that most NFL fans would see a Packers vs. Chiefs Super Bowl as the most attractive to them.

    Rodgers vs. Mahomes wouldn’t be a tough sell either. I will promise you that Chiefs vs. Packers is what FOX is rooting for.💰💰💰

    Next year Ravens are second at 7-1… Based on what? With this QB they are 0-2 and have been embarrassed twice in their opening round playoff games.

    Because at 22yrs old and 23yrs old, this QB still had the ball in his hands in the 4Q with a shot at bringing his team back. The comeback didn’t happen, but he’s getting better. Combine that with essentially the whole offense returning, Hollywood Brown finally 100% healthy, a fresh draft, and cap space to play with, its going to be a better Ravens team. 7-1 sounds about right.

  9. We do not even know if Drew Brees and Tom Brady will return to their teams yet, and they are already setting the odds. That is similar to counting the eggs when you don’t even know if you have a rooster or a hen in the cage.

  10. Chiefs all the way! Great fan base, longtime respected coach, exciting to watch, and a star easy to like QB. If it’s not the Seahawks, I’m all in with (Kan Sas City!) as I believe the great Mitch Holthus says after TDs! Best radio announcer in the NFL.

  11. When Reid became the coach of the Chiefs seven years ago there was a lot of talk about his time management. Trolls have continuously brought it up since then.

    I have not seen one game where this time management was an issue.

    If Raven’s fans next year regular season is going to be a repeat of this year they are dreaming. The coaches in the leauge are too smart and Lamar is figured out. Go right at him before he’s get to make his H.S. spin moves and make him go sideways. He is not accute throwing and this will not improve. See, Mitch Trubisky and Josh Allen. Hollywood Brown is the Will Fuller of Baltimore and can’t be counted on to stay heathly.

    What are the odds the Patriots get caught cheating again?
    ——–
    I’ll take that bet. Easy money! Hahahahaha!

  14. Man, when are people going to learn? Whenever there’s a dominant defense in the Super Bowl, that defense wins. If the Chiefs get past the Titans–no sure bet–the Niners will dominate the Chiefs.

    Remember when the Raiders were favored against the Bucs? When the 19-0 Patriots were favored against the Giants? When the Greatest Show on Turf Rams were favored against the Patriots?

    The reason they make these odds is because they have to; they’re based on how people bet. Be the smart one and bet on the Niners. (This year; I don’t pretend to know more than I know.)

  15. The Chiefs are favored to win the Super Bowl because they have the equivalent of a 78.1% chance to win this week per the odds makers and there is still a good chance they play Green Bay in the Super Bowl, whom they would probably be favored by 6 against on a neutral field.

    If the actual Super Bowl is SF vs KC, it will either be a pickem or SF will be slightly favored by 0.5 or 1.

    Let’s see if the Chiefs figure out how to stop Derrick Henry… I’m not so sure that they can.

    ———–

    The KC defense is definitely worse than NE or BAL. Looking at their previous match up, Mahomes had a great day. He was 36/50 for 446 yards and 3 TDs and no pics. There was also an even turn over margin as both teams lost 1 fumble. And KC lost with that performance. Henry ran for 188. Unless KC come up with something else to stop Henry, then Tenn will hang with them for sure.

    Packers are the longest shot to win the SB. Even Vegas knows their luck is about to run out.

    ———–

    Well they just aren’t that good, but doesn’t mean they can’t play two great games and win the Super Bowl. Rodgers, Jones and Adams have to play lights out.

    If you look at GB from a scoring perspective, they only have a point differential of 68 through 17 games. That means they are winning by an average of 4 points a game. The only other teams to win the Super Bowl with those kinds of numbers were the 2007 and 2011 Giants. It will take an epic performance from Rodgers.

  18. It’s difficult to win two titles in a row. Roster changes because of the salary cap and free agency are big factors. Injuries taking their toll on a team are another consideration.

    Repeats can happen, but they are rare.

  19. Forget favorites for this year’s SB and next. Need to beat the Titans on Sunday. Can’t take anything for granted.

    If you’re referring to cold weather causing footballs to lose pressure, it’s 💯 %!

    The Commish destroyed the PSI data just like he did the Spygate tapes.

  21. The packers scored a total of 8 points….8 points against the 49ers earlier this year, and the 49ers were missing 5 starters. The pack will be lucky to score at all this time around. Remember to follow curfew green and yellows

  22. I’m taking the Titans until someone shows they can stop Henry, and it’s surely not going to be that horrible Chiefs defense I can tell you that. All of you Chiefs fair weather fans better keep this in mind. Mahomes can’t pull off another 40 point performance sitting on the bench, and if your defense can’t stop the run then your offense isn’t going to have the ball very much so scoring will be an issue. Take the Titans or bet the Chiefs and watch your money run to Miami

  23. Chiefs this year… good chance. Back to back… ask the Eagles and Seahawks and even NE about that. Highly unlikely.

  24. We all know the Packers will win the 100th Anniversary Super Bowl. They have been a mediocre team all year and some how have benefited from calls very late in games to pull them to a victory. Every team they play somehow has a star player out with an injury. Aaron Rodgers is due to show his arrogant Championship belt celebration. The zebras will be out in full force in San Fran this weekend.

    GB-REFS 24 SF-49ers 21

  25. Favored does not mean squat. You have to win the games. A tough physical team with a battering ram at running back is coming to town. And they have a heavy Patriot influence on their team. The Patriots always beat chiefs in playoffs. Odds and favorites do not mean a thing once the game starts. Just ask Ravens and Saints.

    Henry might run down your throat all day while Patrick crys on the sideline.

  26. Patrick has not win the big game yet no matter all his statistics. There are no gurantees in NFL. Dan Marino had as much arm talent as Mahomes and never win a Super Bowl. SB are hard to win. Just makes Brady’s 6 titles all the more legendary.

  27. Patrick Mahomes is a great passer who is difficult to stop. However, he has shown that he often starts slowly in a game, and it happened this season againt the Raiders, in last year’s playoffs against New England and in this year’s playoffs against Houston. Therefore to beat him, a team should get off to a fast start, get a big lead, and then run the clock out. That is why teams that have beaten the Chiefs this season have strong running attacks.

  28. With no undue respect to a certain QB in Baltimore the Chiefs have the best QB in the league, by a mile, currently so they should be favored as that’s the most important position in sports.

  29. Chiefs better win it this year. Once Mahomes gets paid they won’t be able to field a team around him. One year wonder.
