Is it too early to begin expecting Super Bowl LVIX kept in New Orleans? Never ever. The San Francisco 49ers are Super Bowl favorites at +500 on BetMGM, regardless of losing to the Kansas City Chiefs (+700 to repeat) in Super Bowl 58. The Baltimore Ravens (+850 ), Buffalo Expenses (+1200) and Detroit Lions (+1200) have the next-best chances.
Naturally, the Chiefs are still among the favorites to win the AFC. It’s presumed that basic supervisor Brett Veach will do whatever in his power to discover aid for Patrick Mahomes after the offense’s battles for the majority of the routine season.
Together With the Chiefs, the Ravens, Expenses and Bengals are the favorites from the AFC. The Jets have even worse chances now (+3000) than they did at this time last season (+2500 ), which was even before they had actually gotten Aaron Rodgers from Green Bay, though reports were currently swirling that Rodgers desired out of Wisconsin and into the Huge Apple.
Of the groups with brand-new head coaches, the Los Angeles Chargers (+2500) have the very best chances with brand-new coach Jim Harbaugh. Los Angeles is $45 million over the wage cap for next season, according to OverTheCap.com.
Detroit (+1200) has actually finished its 180 turn from adorable losers to now a preferred in the NFC. Dallas and Philadelphia are still near the top of their particular conferences, however there will be modifications for both groups this offseason. Dallas lost protective planner Dan Quinn to Washington and Philadelphia worked with Kellen Moore to be its brand-new offending planner and Vic Fangio to lead its defense.
Putting bets on favorites this far out most likely isn’t a great wagering technique, however. Think about that the Chiefs had even worse chances entering this year’s playoffs (+1000) than they did after in 2015’s Super Bowl win (+600 ).

Super Bowl 2025 chances: Texans, Eagles and Falcons have most significant swings from last preseason
Detroit Lions +1200
The Lions have the fifth-best Super Bowl chances in 2024, which feels practically right. In their very first postseason run together, with the fifth-youngest lineup in the NFL, the Lions reached the NFC National championship and held a 24-7 lead. Had they made the needed plays to win the video game, it would’ve been them in Las Vegas wanting to raise the Lombardi. Rather, they’ll utilize a frustrating loss as inspiration and work to arrive next season. Detroit’s finest skill– Penei Sewell, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Aidan Hutchinson, Sam LaPorta, Jahmyr Gibbs, and so on– need to just improve with age. QB Jared Goff has actually now taken 2 groups to NFC National championship and is coming off another strong season. Offending planner Ben Johnson is back for another year, refusing head training chances yet once again. And the Lions will want to enhance a secondary that requires an increase of skill. Detroit’s schedule and department look harder on paper, however thinking about all the Lions have choosing them, they’re well-positioned for another deep postseason run. — Colton Pouncy, Lions author
New York City Jets +3000
The Jets, as much as any group on this list, have the capability to swing hugely in either instructions. That’s the Aaron Rodgers element. The Jets have a great deal of holes to fill on offense (offending line, pass receiver) and issues to get rid of (offending planner) however eventually how far the Jets go (or not) depends mostly on what variation of Rodgers they get. He will turn 41 this season and is coming off Achilles surgical treatment, so it’s reasonable to be doubtful that the Jets will make sounds– however they still have among the very best NFL defenses, which will mainly stay undamaged, and restore 2 stars on offense in Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall — Zack Rosenblatt, Jets author
Green Bay Packers +2500
I marvel the Packers’ chances are that long, thinking about how they completed the 2023 season. After beginning 3-6, they made the playoffs, took apart the Cowboys in the wild-card round, and offered the 49ers a battle in the Divisional Round. In his very first season as the full-time beginning quarterback, Jordan Love revealed why he can be the guy for Green Bay for the next decade-plus, and the majority of his supporting cast, on an offense that thrived in the 2nd half of the season, will return in 2024. The huge concerns remain in the other 2 stages. Can the Packers correct their kicking video game (pun meant), and can brand-new protective planner Jeff Hafley optimize the skill on his side of the ball in a manner Joe Barry could not? If Green Bay can do both, there’s no factor the Packers can’t remain in contention to bring the Lombardi Prize back home.— Matt Schneidman, Packers author
To take the Dolphins as severe Super Bowl competitors, they need to beat groups on the exact same level as them or much better on a semi-consistent basis. That didn’t occur in 2023, with just one win versus a group that completed with a winning record– Dallas Cowboys in Week 16. The 2024 schedule will be harder, too, playing the AFC South, NFC West and the Packers beyond Miami’s AFC East challengers.
Tua Tagovailoa, currently, will go into the last year of his novice agreement in 2024. Will Miami look after its quarterback before Week 1? Plus, you need to question if the defense can come together after many injuries, particularly at edge rush, which took a toll late in the 2023 project. Then you need to question if the Dolphins are the very best or perhaps second-best group in the AFC East with the Expenses as the ruling champs and Aaron Rodgers set to take more than a handful of snaps at QB like in 2015’s injury-plagued season. — Larry Holder, NFL senior author
You understand the Texans will be among the sexiest bets heading into the 2024 season– 2 of the leading young gamers at premium positions with quarterback C.J. Stroud and edge rush Will Anderson. Include budding star coach DeMeco Ryans and an enhancing lineup, and Houston has all the makings of the group prepared to take the next action.
Now, the Texans will not be dealing with a bottom-barrel schedule this season after winning the AFC South. So they’ll get the Chiefs, Ravens and Expenses, in addition to the AFC East and NFC North joining their AFC South slate– toss a healthy NFL Draft compadre, Anthony Richardson, back for the Colts. However the Texans appeared to stand high versus all comers throughout the 2023 routine season before failing versus the Ravens in the AFC divisional round. I anticipate the Texans to enhance in 2024 and for Stroud just to improve after among the greatest novice QB projects in current memory. If that takes place, you never ever understand …– Holder
