The NFL preseason is less than two months away, and fans all over the world can’t wait to see how their favorite team will look when the season starts. Of course, all of them will be hoping that their team will manage to win it all, but there can only be one winner, and we will talk about who that winner might be in this post.
Super Bowl LIV 2020 Betting Odds
The Super Bowl is among the biggest betting events in the USA each year. Nothing is bigger than the Super Bowl in American sport, with a higher number of bets being placed on the Super Bowl than any other sports events. Hundreds of millions of dollars chang e hands every year, with everyone from occasional punters to celebrities unable to resist the thrill. Boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, an avid bettor himself, reportedly placed a $10 million bet on the Broncos to win the Super Bowl in 2013. He has the Seahawks to thank for losing the bet which he denies ever making. We’d probably do the same.
The biggest title favorites for the next Super Bowl are the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots at 6/1. The New Orleans Saints and LA Rams at 8/1 and the Indianapolis Colts at 10/1. If you want to boost your winnings with the latest enhanced odds, follow the link.
We will help you make your betting choice by going through some of the teams who are most likely to win.
New England Patriots
We can’t possibly make a post about the 2020 Super Bowl without mentioning the Patriots. And as long as coach Bill Belichick and quarterback Tom Brady are leading the show, they will always be contenders. The loss of Rob Gronkowski could prove to be huge for their offense, however. It will be interesting to see how the Patriots will adjust without him.
They won 2 of the last 3, or 3 of the last 5 Super Bowls, including this year’s 13-3 win over the LA Rams in Atlanta.
The biggest concern for the Patriots right now is the possible retirement of Tom Brady, who has hinted at retirement on a few occasions despite saying there was no chance of that happening back in January. Brady will turn 42 in August, but he’s still the best quarterback in the NFL right now and possibly or even probably, the greatest quarterback of all time. Having that on your team is sure to make you a Super Bowl contender.
Kansas City Chiefs
Following a disappointing 37-31 loss in the AFC Championship game to the New England Patriots, the future of the Chiefs is still looking very bright, with a win in 2020 or later being very likely.
They made a lot of moves so far during the offseason. They released Houston who is a four-time Pro Bowl selection. They traded Ford who was also a Pro Bowl player. They also lost cornerback Steven Nelson who signed for the Steelers.
On the flips side, they also acquired some quality players including linebacker Damien Wilson and safety Tyrann Mathieu. The Chiefs can score with the best of them but the biggest challenge for them will be to find a way to have a defense that can be strong too.
The biggest reason they’re one of the favorites is their MVP quarterback Michael Mahone, who threw 50 touchdowns and only 12 interceptions in his first season as a starter. Historically speaking, teams who have had elite passers on their team are more likely to win the Championship.
Los Angeles Rams
After making the Super Bowl this past season, losing to the heavy favorites – the Patriots, the Rams are expecting to improve on last season, and hopefully win it all this time. This season will mark a new chapter for the club, as they are set to move to the new Los Angeles Stadium at Hollywood Park in Inglewood.
After being tied with the Saints as the betting favorites to win the NFC championship, the Rams pulled ahead following the draft in which they drafted safety Taylor Rapp with their top selection. They will surely hope that one of these selections can prove vital for their Super Bowl run.
Another huge aspect of their championship hopes is the play of their quarterback Jared Goff, who has been very solid the past two seasons boasting a 60:19 touchdown to interception ratio. He is still yet to earn himself an extension, however, and he will need to prove that he is the long term solution for the Rams at that position.
