NFL 2022 Season Preview and Odds

After a month and a half of retirement, Tom Brady announced that he’s back in the game for another season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The seven-time Super Bowl winner will look to hoist football’s top award one more time after faltering in the Divisional Round to the eventual champions, the LA Rams. It’s good news for Bucs management, who didn’t have a back-up plan at starting quarterback. 

Next Super Bowl Odds

Just like that, the Bucs have shot up to the top of the Super Bowl odds board, where they currently stand at +700. In this preview, we’ll check in with the top 10 teams on the futures market, and get you ready for Super Bowl LVII at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +700

Brady pointed to “unfinished business” as his reason for returning for a 23rd season. Bucs management will look to surround their star QB with the necessary talent to make another push at the Super Bowl despite the departures of Ali Marpet, Alex Cappa and Antonio Brown. Several more players have hit free agency, including DT Ndamukong Suh, C Ryan Jensen, CB Carlton Davis and RB Leonard Fournette. Perhaps Marpet will return from retirement now that Brady is back, but can Brady keep up his league-leading passing game at the age of 45? 

Buffalo Bills +750

The Bills were on top of the NFL world for key parts of the season last year. They entered the playoffs as third seeds in the AFC and dummied the New England Patriots in the Wild Card game. However, a tough divisional matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs left the Bills feeling shortchanged when they lost in overtime without getting a possession. It was a bitter end after finishing the season with the top-ranked defense and a third-most productive offense led by promising QB Josh Allen. Some changes are being made to the Bills’ O-line, with the release of Daryl Williams and the acquisition of Rodger Saffold from the Tennessee Titans. 

Kansas City Chiefs +750

After starting the 2021-22 season as the Super Bowl LVI favourites, the Chiefs went 3-4, simultaneously plummeting down the odds board. They turned things around and finished 12-5 SU to make the postseason as the No. 2 seed in the AFC. Unfortunately for them, their postseason run came to an end when they came up short as 7-point home favourites against the scrappy Cincinnati Bengals in the AFC Championship game. In need of cap space, they’re in the process of restructuring the massive contract of DE Frank Clark, who underperformed last season after two good years with the Chiefs.

Green Bay Packers +750

After coming to terms with four-time MVP QB Aaron Rodgers, who signed a four-year contract worth $200 million, Packers management attempted to put the franchise tag on Rodgers’ top target, Davante Adams. Disgruntled with the move, Adams is allegedly holding out for a long-term deal with the Packers and has until July to come to an agreement.

Los Angeles Rams +1100

It's pretty unusual for defending champions to start this far down the list, but the Rams have some significant players hitting free agency this offseason, including Von Miller and Odell Beckham Jr. and no cap space at all. To make matters worse, they gave up their first-round pick in 2022 and 2023 to the Detroit Lions when they went all in for QB Matthew Stafford. 

Denver Broncos +1200

The blockbuster trade of the offseason to this point is the Broncos’ acquisition of QB Russell Wilson. After spending 10 years as Seattle’s franchise quarterback, winning one Super Bowl in the process, Wilson signed a waiver to negate his no-trade clause in anticipation of moving to Denver. The Broncos have been in need of a starter since going through the QB rolodex after Peyton Manning’s 2015 retirement, and their 2021 first round draft pick of cornerback Patrick Surtain over QB Justin Fields, further cemented that need.

San Francisco 49ers +1200

With Brady’s return from retirement and the Steelers’ signing of Mitchell Trubisky, there are two fewer franchises on the hunt for a starting QB. That drops QB Jimmy Garoppolo’s value considerably; however, the Colts continue to be a possible candidate for the San Francisco starter. At some point, the 49ers will begin the Trey Lance era, and this is likely the year. 

Dallas Cowboys +1600

The Cowboys were the toast of the NFL for football bettors, with the best ATS record in the league at 13-4 (12-5 SU). A big part of that success came from their top-ranked offensive attack, which averaged 31.2 points per game. It was a lethal combination of RB Ezekiel Elliott and QB Dak Prescott in 2021, but Dak’s receiving corps will have a different look in 2022. Amari Cooper has been shipped to the Cleveland Browns for a pair of picks following some drama with Prescott, and with that, CeeDee Lamb becomes Dallas’ undisputed No. 1. 

Los Angeles Chargers +1600

The future is bright for the Chargers as QB Justin Herbert enters his third full season in the NFL and looks to build on a breakout season that saw him set career highs in passing yards (5,014) and TDs (38). But the Chargers failed to make the playoffs last season because of a defense that was too easy to play against. They made a splash this offseason by acquiring LB Kahlil Mack from the Bears, but they’ll need to do more than that to turn around the league’s third-worst defense.

Cincinnati Bengals +2000

Coming off of a Cinderella story run to the Super Bowl, Joe Burrow and the Bengals are intent on taking the next step this season. They’re the undisputed top team in the AFC North and will surely make a run at the Vince Lombardi once again in 2022. Pick them up while their Super Bowl odds are at bargain prices.
