Who are Super Bowl LVII favourites ahead of 2022 NFL season?
The new NFL campaign is fast approaching, with preseason officially underway following Thursday’s Hall of Fame Game in Ohio.
On Thursday, NFL preseason kicked with the Hall of Fame Game between the Jaguars and Raiders, Las Vegas beating Jacksonville 27-11 in Canton, Ohio. Despite the fact that bookmakers have changed their projections with a month to go before the beginning of the 2022 season, the Buffalo Bills and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain the favourites to win the Super Bowl.
According to OddsChecker.com, a website that monitors different casinos and sports betting portals, Tampa Bay and Buffalo are the teams with the best chance of winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
The key movers in the odds table
Following the start of training camps and with Russell Wilson completing his first workouts in Denver, the Broncos are now the sixth-most likely team to make it to the Super Bowl at State Farm Stadium.
A noteworthy case is that of the Browns. Despite the six-game suspension given to Deshaun Watson over the multiple allegations of sexual misconduct against the quarterback, Cleveland continues to be seen as a competitive franchise. However, this could change if the NFL’s appeal against the punishment leads to a longer ban.
The Chargers are another team that has climbed numerous positions in the betting. The consensus of the casinos places Los Angeles as the fifth-favourite team to win the Super Bowl in February.
Meanwhile, the Las Vegas Raiders aren’t seen as a title contender. Though they’ve added the likes of Davante Adams and Chandler Jones to their roster, the franchise is only halfway up the table in terms of expected Super Bowl prospects.
