The Rams won Super Bowl LVI on Sunday night and the celebrations didn’t end before it was time for sports books to move on to Super Bowl LVII.

Odds for the next team to hoist the Lombardi Trophy are out and a couple of AFC teams that faced each other in the playoffs have been installed as the favorites to win it all in Arizona next February. According to PointsBet, the Chiefs are +650 to win another Super Bowl title and the Bills are +750 to break through for the first Super Bowl win in franchise history.

The Rams are +1100 to become the first team to repeat as champions since the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXIX. The Packers and Cowboys are both +1400, although Aaron Rodgers‘ announcement about his future plans will likely impact where Green Bay winds up on the board.

The Bengals are +1600 after falling short against the Rams, which is far better odds than they had at this point last year. The Texans and Lions currently bring up the rear at +15000 with the Jets, Giants, and Jaguars rounding out the bottom five right now.

  1. Says what people already know. The best teams weren’t playing last night, the game and lack of excitability leading up to it, proved that. Wish the refs would call games like they did last night, all year long. Less than 5 flags the whole game and the players determined the outcome.

  2. Allen, Mahomes are unquestionably the best in the NFL.
    It’s a long way down to find the third best QB.

  3. The Chiefs? No way they should be favored ahead of the Bengals. The Bengals are younger, have way more cap room, and all of their draft picks to fix their offensive line. Plus, I think Burrow is better than Mahomes already.

  4. Things will look different free agency. Rams, Chiefs and Bills have no money, while the Bengals have the 3rd most.

  5. I bleed red white and blue as a Bills fan but they need to do it and just be favorites to do it.

  6. I’d be shocked if the Bills recover from that playoff loss to KC. Lots of baggage for the team to get over.

  7. Awww, look at all the woulda coulda shoulda folks… Rams will be right back in the mix, don’t you worry.

  8. The Chiefs one-year dynasty has crumbled; there defense is barely average, they need to pay their left tackle at least $17 million a year (tag price) where they already have cap issues, 6 or 7 players are getting a large portion of the cap leaves no money to improve more like can only afford very cheap less-talented players, and teams with above average defenses have easily figured out how to stop Mahomes…it should be Cincinnati who has about $60 million in cap space to buy an O-line, kind of like how they bought their Defense and maybe the Bills, would say the Niners but they look like they are going with Lance which becomes a throw away season with a rookie QB. Dallas is going to lose a good part of their middle talent levels due to cap issues and will be replaced with as-cheap-as you can get talent.

  9. LOL, and KC’s 13 seconds in their loss to the Bengals?
    Get ready to be pulverized by the Bills and KC next year…

  10. 2 coaches claimed ownership offered them bonuses to tank… if an owner will ask that of a coach, why not of a player?…
    .
    i won’t bet a penny on football anymore (ecxept super bowl squares)… doesn’t matter who wins then.

  11. Bengals need to solve their sack problem or Burrows won’t be around for the Superbowl

  12. The same Buffalo that lost to the Jaguars, Tennessee and had to wait for Mac Jones to hit his rookie wall before winning the division? Buffalo missed their SB window.

  13. Mahomes needs to quit running around in circles in the back field if the play is not there. And he needs to take off and run if nobody is open.

  14. “ As they should be…but much can happen along the way. I am looking forward to the draft!” …and that’s the arrogance that the players and organization also share. Reality is something different.

  15. Looking forward to next season already. This one was a missed opportunity for Buffalo – I think they would have won that game yesterday.

    But that’s the NFL. You can have the best team & it’s no guarantee.

  16. Chief were the latest 1 yr dynasty. After the Eagles, Seahawks, Broncos, etc. When Josh Allen ever makes a big play to win a big game, could someone call me?

  17. How are the Chiefs looked at as being favorites ahead of the Bengals? Did we forget the last 6 weeks? The Bengals beat the Chiefs in Cincy. Maybe a fluke. Then the Bengals beat the Chiefs at Arrowhead. And the conclusion is “the chiefs are the favorites”. LMFAO. And Buffalo already peaked. Every “1 year dynasty” follows a similar path. Build a contender, get to a SB and win, get to a SB and lose, and then slowly fade away. The Seahawks did it with Wilson and then paid him and faded away. The Chiefs did it with Mahomes and then paid him and they are starting their decline. The difference is Buffalos peak was an AFCCG loss. They have already declined from that. Now they will be in contention for the Division for the next 4-7 years, never win a SB, and go back to their rightful place at the bottom of the division. At least the Seahawks and Chiefs got to hoist a trophy. BuffaLOL spent on their QB and now they are done.

  18. Buffalo would have demolished both of those teams.

    ____

    Except for the fact that, you know, they weren’t there.

  19. Just like the previous two years, casuals fans will lose money on the Chiefs. Before laying your hard-earned money down, first notice the progression: Barely win SB. Get destroyed in SB. Lost in AFC Championship… The Chiefs will lose in the Divisional Round next season.

  20. Do Pats fans get a nickel every time they say “1 year dynasty?”

    It’s actually kind of enjoyable to keep seeing that. They’re Yankees fans now.

    Bengals are cheap, does not matter how much under the cap they are they won’t spend it.
    Or they would have invested in an O-line this year…

  22. “Buffalo’s window is already closing” seems to be a popular sentiment. Would anyone care to give a reason or 2 for that?

    It’s just a lazy argument from fans whose teams won’t be contending. Giving an elite QB elite money is a problem most teams strive to have. The idea that it “closes the window” isn’t logical or consistent w/ NFL history.

    The Bills window will be open as long as Allen plays football.

  23. The Bills are destined to be the AFC Packers, only without a Super Bowl. Very good QB but just can’t push through the wall. Cap space won’t help.

  24. You know who you can get great odds on? The Patriots. They have the worst defense in NFL history and a QB whose ceiling is Teddy Bridgewater/Andy Dalton.

  25. Chiefs are almost done, maybe -big maybe- one more shot but that’s all, thank goodness. Bills have much more upside but neither should be favored over the Rams or Bengals.

  26. All the doubters will be so upset when the chiefs host their 5th consecutive afccg while the bungholes finish 3rd in the afcn

  27. i don’t see why all the complaints… if you disagree, the team you believe in has better odds (as far as payout). put your money where your texting fingers are and take vegas’ money.
