Odds as of February 14th at FanDuel Sportsbook.

It looks like the Buffalo Bills are leading it all as the early favorites, with the Kansas City Chiefs not far behind them. Of course, the Chiefs beat the Bills 42-36 in that OT thriller in the AFC divisional round playoff game. The Chiefs were eliminated by the Bengals in another OT game, 27-24 in the AFC Championship Game.

Right now, the Bills have an implied win probability of 12.5% to take home the Vince Lombardi Trophy in 2023. If you were to bet $100 on them right now, it would pay $700 on a winning ticket. So, a net return of $600.

Could LA Repeat in Super Bowl 57?

On the other side of things, it looks like the oddsmakers believe the Rams could return to the Super Bowl. The Rams and Dallas Cowboys are at +1200 to lead the NFC teams. This gives them implied win probabilities of 7.69%. If you were to place a $100 wager on either team right now, it would pay out $1,200 if they won, so a net of $1,100.

We all watched as the Rams won their second Super Bowl title, the last one coming in the 1999-2000 season while they were still in St. Louis. They beat the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in the NFC Championship Game. Conversely, the Cowboys lost to the 49ers 23-17 in the divisional round.

Texans at the Bottom of the Barrel

On the other end of the board, it looks like the Houston Texans have the longest shot at winning with +18000 odds. The Texans finished last season with a 4-13 record, after a 1-8 start that saw them fire first-year coach David Culley. They announced Lovie Smith would take over as head coach for the 2022-23 season.

Bills Are Early Super Bowl 57 Favorites

Does it surprise anyone that the Bills and Chiefs are the early favorites to win it all in 2023? We all watched the amazing (and controversial) playoff game between these two teams. Additionally, the Bills went 11-6 last year while winning their second straight AFC East title. Meanwhile, the Chiefs went 12-5 and won their sixth straight AFC West title last year.

Buffalo Bills Outlook

While the Bills have never won a Super Bowl, it looks like the oddsmakers think that could change at Super Bowl 57. This past season, the Bills led the league in scoring defense (17.0) and were third in points scored per game(28.4).

You can not go wrong with Josh Allen calling the shots, as he leads an offense with plenty of options and targets to chose from, including wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis, and tight end Dawson Knox. The only issue for the Bills is that they need to replace offensive coordinator Brian Daboll. He was hired as the head coach for the New York Giants.

On the free agency side of things for the Bills, defensive ends Jerry Hughes and Mario Addison, as well as defensive tackle Harrison Phillips could sign with other teams.

Kansas City Chiefs Outlook

The Chiefs were fourth in the NFL in scoring for the regular season, averaging 28.2 points per game. That offense should remain explosive, as Patrick Mahomes will be back to call the shots with wide receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce running the routes.

The Chiefs’ defense did get off to a rocky start last season, but they finished eighth in points allowed with 21.4 per game. The biggest issue in free agency is that safety Tyrann Mathieu is a free agent. He made the Pro Bowl in each of his last three seasons.

Retirement Hurts Super Bowl 57 Prospects for Some Teams

The big news coming from the NFL offseason so far has been the retirement announcements of two huge quarterbacks: Tom Brady with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Ben Roethlisberger with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Pittsburgh Steelers

Of course, the Steelers made it into the playoffs this season but lost 42-21 to the Chiefs in the Wild Card round. Afterward, Roethlisberger announced his retirement. Despite making the playoffs this season, they are longshots to win it all in 2023 at +6500.

It makes sense, as the Steelers are left with Mason Rudolph, Dwayne Haskins, and Josh Dobbs as the quarterbacks on their roster.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The other big-name quarterback to call it quits this offseason was Brady. The Buccaneers were favorites to repeat as champions heading into the 2021-22 season, but they lost 30-27 to the Rams in the Divisional Playoffs.

Brady announced his retirement and while rumors are still going around that he could still possibly return, that probably won’t happen. The Bucs don’t have a proven starter on the roster, so the talk on the town is them possibly going after either Deshaun Watson of the Texans or Russell Wilson of the Seahawks.

That must have the oddsmakers excited, as they didn’t put the Buccaneers as far down as the Steelers. The Bucs come in at +2600 to win Super Bowl 57. However, there are rumors that Brady could come back for one more season.

Early Super Bowl 57 Picks

Can the Bills finally get that Super Bowl win that has mystified them up until this point? They seem poised to have that breakout season and win it all next year. Allen is a franchise quarterback that can lead them to victory.

Add in the fact they have that OT loss against the Chiefs to help motivate them all the way to the Super Bowl. They have the best odds to win it all, so will you be placing your money on them?
