NFL Kickoff: Can the Kansas City Chiefs Justify Favorite Tag for Super Bowl LVI?

Chiefs Super Bowl Odds

The NFL regular season is scheduled to start on September 9, 2021, with excitement growing ahead of defending Super Bowl LV champion Tampa Bay Buccaneers hosting the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL Kickoff Game.

The Bucs were surprise winners of Super Bowl LV (a dominating 31-9 win over the Kansas City Chiefs), but nobody will underestimate them this season.

The legend that is Tom Brady will be 44 when the regular season starts, but age doesn’t appear to have diminished his abilities as yet.


Super Bowl Odds

If the Kansas City Chiefs can keep their superstar trio of quarterback Patrick Mahomes, receiver Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce healthy over the duration of the regular and postseasons, then they are certainly the team to beat.

They’ve also rebuilt and strengthened their offensive line with the additions of Orlando Brown Jr., Joe Thuney, Austin Blythe and rookie Creed Humphrey during the offseason.

The Chiefs are the current favorites to win Super Bowl LVI, which is scheduled to be played on February 13, 2022, at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Who else can win the Super Bowl in 2022?

Looking outside the two big favorites in the Super Bowl betting odds (Chiefs & Bucs) here are four other teams who may have what it takes to go all the way this season.

Green Bay Packers +1200

The future of last season’s MVP, Aaron Rodgers, has been the biggest question mark around the Green Bay Packers during the offseason. It now looks likely that the quarterback will stay, but that this could be his final season with Green Bay. The Packers have come within a game of the Super Bowl in each of the last two seasons under coach Matt LaFleur. Could it be third time lucky?

Buffalo Bills +1200

The Buffalo Bills have a great offense, with Josh Allen raising his game with 45 touchdowns last season. They also have a number of talented young players who are expected to make further progress this season.

Los Angeles Rams +1400

The Los Angeles Rams could be one of the big contenders to win the Super Bowl, having upgraded at quarterback by bringing in Matthew Stafford from the Detroit Lions to replace Jared Goff.

Cleveland Browns +1600

Another possible challenger is the Cleveland Browns, who came close to defeating the Chiefs in the Divisional Round last season in a 22-17 defeat.
