Major League Baseball is starting to heat up, but sports fans in America are already clamoring for football to begin. NFL training camps will officially begin next month, and fans can’t wait to get their first look at their favorite team. The New England Patriots are the defending Super Bowl champions, but they will have plenty of worthy challengers this season. Let’s take a look at the current odds to win the Super Bowl with a quick preview of a few of the teams on the list.
New England Patriots 6/1: The New England Patriots are heavy favorites to repeat as Super Bowl champions, and it shouldn’t be much of a surprise. The Patriots have been stumbling through regular seasons of late, but they are always a factor in the NFL playoffs. As long as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are a part of the Patriots organization, then they are always a sound pick.
Kansas City Chiefs 10/1: The Chiefs will look a lot different this season, but they will still have their all-world quarterback in Patrick Mahomes. Tyreek Hill could be facing an early-season suspension due to off-field issues but should be back in time for the playoffs. If the Chiefs can find some defense to pair with their offense, then they will be tough to beat.
Los Angeles Rams 10/1: Todd Gurley’s health is a big concern in Los Angeles, but the Rams should once again be one of the highest scoring teams in the NFC. The Rams gained a ton of experience by a Super Bowl run a season ago, and they will be a popular pick to win the Super Bowl this season.
New Orleans Saints 10/1: The New Orleans Saints’ championship window is closing in a hurry, and this might be their final chance to win a second Super Bowl under Drew Brees and Sean Payton. The Saints were much improved on the defensive side of the ball a season ago, and they can always score.
Cleveland Browns 14/1: The Cleveland Browns are coming, and they are coming fast. Cleveland has a future star at quarterback in Baker Mayfield, and they have surrounded him with a ton of weapons. Cleveland still has plenty to prove, but they are going to be for real.
Indianapolis Colts 15/1
Philadelphia Eagles 15/1
Los Angeles Chargers 19/1
Chicago Bears 20/1: The Bears surprised everyone a season ago to win the NFC North Division, but oddsmakers don’t like their title chances as much in 2019. Chicago has a terrific defense led by Khalil Mack, but they still need more production from young quarterback Mitchell Trubisky.
Dallas Cowboys 22/1
Green Bay Packers 25/1: The Green Bay Packers were a mess last season, and it ended up costing Mike McCarthy his job as head coach. Green Bay is turning to first-year coach Matt LaFleur this season, but they still have Aaron Rodgers under center. Keep your eye on Green Bay this season.
Minnesota Vikings 25/1
Pittsburgh Steelers 25/1: It will be interesting to see what life without Le’ Veon Bell and Antonio Brown looks like for the Steelers, but they should still be really good. Pittsburgh has a solid quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger, and they will be out for revenge after missing the playoffs a season ago.
San Francisco 49ers 30/1
Atlanta Falcons 30/1: The Atlanta Falcons have been a huge disappointment since blowing the Super Bowl to the New England Patriots a few seasons ago. Health has been a huge factor for the Falcons, but they could be a contender if they keep everyone on the field.
Houston Texans 40/1
Seattle Seahawks 40/1: Not much love for the Seattle Seahawks despite having one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL in Russell Wilson. Seattle should be the second-best team in the NFC West and will likely be a playoff team in 2019. It’s hard to ever count out the Seahawks.
Baltimore Ravens 45/1
Jacksonville Jaguars 45/1
Carolina Panthers 50/1
Denver Broncos 60/1
New York Jets 60/1
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 70/1
Oakland Raiders 75/1: Landing Antonio Brown should help the Raiders’ struggling offense, but Oakland has a lot of improving to do to compete this season. They will be featured on HBO’s Hard Knocks, and that might be the highlight of the season.
Tennessee Titans 75/1
Maybe Next Year
Detroit Lions 100/1
Buffalo Bills 125/1
Arizona Cardinals 125/1
New York Giants 125/1: Eli Manning comes into the regular season as the starting QB, but it will be interesting to see how long he lasts. New York has one of the top players in the league in Saquon Barkley, and they need to turn things around in a hurry.
Cincinnati Bengals 150/1
Washington Redskins 150/1
Miami Dolphins 200/1
