It might be only August, but we thought we would offer some Early Super Bowl Odds for everyone to take a look at, or even take a punt on.
There are a lot of great teams in the mix this season, and if you exclude the obvious favourites like the Chiefs and Eagles, you can find some value in those teams that might just sneak into the show.
Those plucky teams that snipe through on a barely winning season to capture the title and take the Lombardy.
Here are a few of our teams to look at early on. Please note that these odds were chosen in August 2023.
Eighth ranked to take the title this year, are the rejuvenated squad from Maryland, with Lamar steadily at the helm this season.
Baltimore loaded up on wide receivers and running backs to take the edge of LJ, and the defence has been as fierce as has it ever has been, with some key rookie additions.
The Ravens are worth a bet to sneak through the slugfest that will be the AFC, and take themselves to the big game if they remain healthy.
What the who dat day? The Saints?
Yes, New Orleans has the chance of sneaking through via a horrible division, and the potluck Chuck of possibly moving through a sluggish looking NFC aside from a few.
Derek Carr could be motivated to light up Michael Thomas and Olave, and their running game has always been solid.
It’s all about staying healthy, and if the Saints can do that, why not take a chance on them to go to the Super Bowl?
Oh Carolina, are you getting Shaggy with us?
Maybe, but let’s Frank the Reich out of this situation.
The Panthers have had a solid D for the past few seasons, the running game was great, but it was the QB that sunk them.
Bryce Young has the benefit of being surrounded by a trio of veteran wide receivers in Adam Thielen, DJ Chark, and Leviska Shenault Jr. and TE Hayden Hurst, and maybe they can sling enough W’s to get out into a playoff rumble.
The NFC has the best odds for crazy value, but of course.
LA Chargers (+2200)
The Chargers might be tenth favoured to win the Super Bowl, but there are still five AFC teams ahead of them.
Justin Herbert has that new contract smell about him, as he awaits the slave labour contract that is about to slapped on Austin Ekeler for wanting fair pay.
Once all that malarky is settled, the Chargers have that mix of veterans and rookies that might be able to gel together to make it work.
Keenan Allen is a reliable number one, but it remains to be seen if he can last a whole season.
Losing Herbert too would stick LA with Easton Stick, which is their back-up and a baseball bat name.
That being said if the Chargers can navigate the healthy waters of the seasonal slug, they could rally their squad to finally win some playoff games.
The hometown could be proudish.
Some other ones to look at if you want to take an early season punt on a Super Bowl hope:
Why the heck not? The Jags and Trevor Lawrence could get cooking, plough through their division and get themselves a playoff glide.
Yeah, they’re fourth ranked, but they have a win it or else culture about them this season. Look for Sam Darnold to be a fantasy leader here via a great O line.
Because why the hell not?
Justin Fields could ball out like a mother-trucker this season, and the D could magically find ways to stop people.
Stranger things have happened.
Who do you think could win it all?
