We’re coming off the most topsy-turvy week of the NFL season, one that saw favorites fall in spectacular fashion. Some of those teams – the Buffalo Bills, L.A. Rams, and Dallas Cowboys – remain among the favorites across the sports betting landscape to win Super Bowl LVI at SoFi Stadium in February 2022.
Tampa Bay (6-2) is the current +550 favorite to hoist the Lombardi Trophy at season’s end. Before their bye last week, the reigning Super Bowl champions fell to New Orleans 36-27 in Week 8.
At the midway point of the regular season, it appears fewer than 10 teams qualify as legitimate contenders to win it all. Here’s a look at those teams and their odds to win Super Bowl LVI, via DraftKings.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+550)
A worthy favorite when you consider who leads this team. We’re talking about Tom Brady and not head coach Bruce Arians in this case. The Bucs began the season at +600 to repeat as Super Bowl champions. The last team to repeat? New England, in 2004-2005, with Brady at the helm.
Buffalo Bills (+600)
We’re going to excuse the Bills (5-3) for that shocking 9-6 loss at Jacksonville. Maybe they were still enjoying an extended bye week after seeing the Jaguars were next up on the schedule. Perhaps this was just a clunker for QB Josh Allen and his teammates. It happens. Until proven otherwise, Buffalo is still the AFC’s best threat to win it all.
L.A. Rams (+800)
Last week, the Rams (7-2) welcomed Von Miller into their defensive fold – talk about the rich getting richer – and their Super Bowl odds shortened at multiple sportsbooks, including at WynnBet. Miller (ankle) did not play against in Sunday’s surprising loss to the Titans at home.
Tennessee Titans (+1000)
The Titans (7-2) went into L.A. as 7-point underdogs and came out as 12-point winners, 28-16. The fact that they did so without RB Derrick Henry surprised a lot of bettors. Henry, who still leads the NFL in rushing despite being out with a foot injury, might be out for the season depending on his recovery time.
Arizona Cardinals (+1000)
With QB Kyler Murray (ankle) and WR DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) both out against the 49ers, the Cardinals (8-1) limped into San Francisco but left with a convincing 31-17 victory. Colt McCoy could start again at QB this week against the Panthers, and it likely won’t matter given Carolina’s recent struggles. But keep an eye on Murray’s health status moving forward.
Baltimore Ravens (+1200)
This is an attractive number, and gun to my head, the one team I’d pull the trigger on right now in terms of value. The Ravens came off their bye week (after a crushing loss to Cincinnati) and did what they needed to do. While so many favorites lost outright last week, Baltimore came through with a 34-31 OT win against Minnesota.
The Cowboys, Packers, and Chiefs are also currently 12-1 at DraftKings. Despite the debacle against Denver, Dallas would be the top choice among these three options. Green Bay will be fine whenever Aaron Rodgers returns, but K.C. has no business in this trio at 12-1 given its current form on both offense and defense.
