Partner Content | Super Bowl odds: Bills favoured to take home the Lombardi trophy

With the NFL draft well behind us and free agency all but wrapped up, it’s time to begin prognosticating who will take home Super Bowl 57.

The latest: There hasn’t been a meaningful snap of NFL football in four months, and there won’t be another until Sept. 8. That being said, the time in between is where Super Bowls can be won and lost; the offseason provides ample opportunity to address needs, make improvements and prepare for the future.

Here are the preseason top-10 Super Bowl odds.

Los Angeles Rams +1,100

Best Super Bowl odds

The favourite: Buffalo Bills (+650)

To no one’s surprise, Josh Allen and the Bills are pegged as the favourites to win Super Bowl 57.

After all, the squad was just 13 seconds away from hosting their first AFC Championship game since 1994, where they likely would have been hefty favourites against the Cincinnati Bengals (sorry to reopen old wounds, Bills Mafia).

While that was disappointing, everything about this team screams revenge tour.

Allen took a massive step forward last season and is the favourite to win the MVP trophy at +600. The 26-year-old gunslinger is surrounded by talent at almost every position and Buffalo’s elite defence may have gotten even better.

The Bills’ offence ranked fifth in yards per game (381.9) and scored the second-most touchdowns in the NFL last year (57). Moreover, Buffalo had the third-highest PPG last season (28.4).

Now to the defence, where Jordan Poyer, Tre’Davious White and Micah Hyde form the nucleus of perhaps the best secondary in the NFL, which allowed a league-low 12 passing TDs last season.

Take a look at how defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier’s unit ranked among the league’s best:

Pass YDS/G Rush YDS/G YDS/G Takeaways PPG
Buffalo Bills 163.0 (1st) 109.8 (13th) 272.8 (1st) 30 (3rd) 17 (1st)

If there was any weakness in Buffalo’s defence, one could point to stopping the rush. Inking future Hall of Famer Von Miller has elevated an already strong front-seven that features the likes of breakout candidate Tremaine Edmunds.

Get the folding tables ready because this could finally be the year where the Lombardi Trophy heads to Buffalo.

Quick picks

Best value: Baltimore Ravens (+2,000)

You’d be hard-pressed to find a team as talented as the Baltimore Ravens. Lamar Jackson and Co. may have missed the playoffs last season, but that was due to one of the worst bouts with injury luck we’ve seen in years.

A healthy Baltimore has the potential to do some damage on both sides of the ball. J.K. Dobbins and Gus Edwards will return behind a strong offensive line, while Jackson will have a young and talented receiving corps to sling to.

The Ravens once again dominated the NFL Draft by snagging blue-chip prospects Kyle Hamilton and Tyler Linderbaum. Hamilton will slot into a defence hungry to prove its worth after a down year.

John Harbaugh has proven himself to be one of the best coaches in the league, so don’t sleep on his Ravens.

Team to watch: New Orleans Saints (+4,000)

We promise you we’re not crazy — New Orleans is worth a sniff at 40-to-1.

The Saints had one of the most effective defences in the NFL last year but were held back due to an anemic offence (that’s what happens when Taysom Hill and Trevor Semien are trotted out under centre).

Now-head-coach Dennis Allen’s unit allowed the third-fewest PPG (19.7), the fourth-fewest rushing yards per game (93.5) and the seventh-fewest total yards per game (318.2). Signing Tyrann Mathieu should strengthen a weak spot in the secondary.

Jameis Winston may be the butt-end of jokes, but he performed well prior to injury with a 14-3 TD-INT ratio and 102.9 passer rating. Winston will have Jarvis Landry, Michael Thomas, Chris Olave and Alvin Kamara to help him.
