Now that the confetti has been cleaned away and all 32 NFL teams have conducted their exit interviews and headed into the off-season, it’s time to think about sports betting odds of winning Super Bowl LVIII. We’re still in the middle of a merry-go-round as far as coaches and quarterbacks are concerned. One is Derek Carr, who turned down a trade from Las Vegas to New Orleans and was granted his release, and who went through a workout with the New York Jets. Another is Aaron Rodgers, who is going through what now seems like a yearly bit of self-exploration to see whether he wants to play at all, and if he does, where. The Packers seem ready to turn the keys of the offense over to Jordan Love, so it will be interesting to see what happens. Let’s go through each team’s current Super Bowl odds and talk about some key updates.

Kansas City got a nearly flawless performance out of Patrick Mahomes in their Super Bowl win, but that came thanks in large part to a perfect performance from his O-line. The Eagles came in with a fearsome pass rush but did not sack Mahomes once. Some of that ad to do with Mahomes’ mobility, but remember that he was still hobbled a bit from that high ankle sprain. The Chiefs are here to stay, after hosting five straight AFC Championships, appearing in three of the last four Super Bowls, and winning two of them.
Philadelphia got a performance for the ages from Jalen Hurts in Super Bowl LVII. They led the Chiefs in all the metrics that don’t matter (time of possession and total yards, to begin with) but did not hold the lead in the one that counts (points). They became just the second team ever to surrender a double-digit halftime lead in a Super Bowl (the other being the infamous 28-3 Atlanta Falcons), and their gaffes were enormous. Hurts simply dropped a ball while attempting a bootleg, which turned into a scoop-and-score for the Chiefs, and Kadarius Toney returned a punt 65 yards for the Chiefs to set up their last touchdown. Miles Sanders had a scoop-and-score fumble of his own turned into an incompletion on a play that would have handed the Chiefs another touchdown. The Eagles should head into 2023’s regular season with plenty of motivation, but we will see if that just turns into another Super Bowl hangover.
Cincinnati is about to have some salary cap issues as the team looks to turn Joe Burrow from a rookie deal into a major extension. Keeping tailback Joe Mixon, wide receiver Ty Boyd and right tackle La’el Collins could all be problems. The offensive line injuries for the Bengals weren’t a problem against Buffalo in the divisional round, but they were huge issues against the Chiefs in the AFC Championship.
San Francisco returns as a team of intrigue – especially since they don’t have a quarterback set yet. Jimmy Garoppolo is a free agent and most likely will be shopping for a new home after he played well in 2022 – until he broke his foot. Brock Purdy looked like the preemptive starter for next year until he blew a UCL in his elbow in the NFC Championship. So that leaves Trey Lance, who started 2022 as the starter until a Week 1 injury ended his season.
