NFL Odds: Super Bowl 54 Betting Favourites


The Patriots find themselves atop the NFL favourites to capture Super Bowl 54.


The crowning of the New England Patriots as Super Bowl LIII Champions marks the end of a terrific NFL season. The Pats were marginal 3-point favourites to defeat the Los Angeles Rams on the NFL Vegas odds, but on the biggest game of the season, Brady and Belichick showed yet again that they are second to none. With a 13-3 final score, this year’s Super Bowl wasn’t the offensive shootout that many expected, but what the game lacked in points, it made up for in defensive play calling.


Belichick and Sean McVay clearly had plans to frustrate each other’s offense going into the game. Rams’ QB Jared Goff couldn’t find a receiver and was under pressure on every drop back. The Pats were unable to execute the running game that they had relied on throughout the playoffs due to a stout Rams’ D-line. But ultimately, one critical fourth quarter drive made the difference, giving the New England Patriots the Super Bowl victory, as was expected on the NFL lines.


NFL Betting Breakdown


The Rams, who’ve shifted to second-favourites for Super Bowl 54, will be left thinking about what went wrong and how they can improve on an incredible season. Meanwhile, the favoured Pats will look to find more ways to beat their opposition. Let’s break down how they, and the other favourites, stack up on the Super Bowl 2020 odds board.


New England Patriots +650


After capturing their sixth title together, the QB-coach combination of Brady and Belichick will be back at it in 2019-2020. That’s all oddsmakers needed to know to put the Patriots back on top of the Super Bowl 54 odds board. Now with a reliable running back in Sony Michel added to the mix, the Pats can refine their roster where they need it most. They ranked 30th in the NFL in sacks and were 10th-worst in defending against the pass during the regular season. With DE Trey Flowers hitting free agency, New England will need to find a way to bolster their pass rush and put greater pressure on opposing QBs. If they can, they’re likely to defend their No. 1 status on the NFL odds next season.


Los Angeles Rams +700


Make no mistake, the LA Rams will contend again. They’ve got all of the pieces to make runs at the Vince Lombardi Trophy for years to come. Head coach Sean McVay will add Super Bowl LIII to his memory bank and use the experience as motivation. With Goff, Gurley and Cooks on offense, and Aaron Donald wracking up sacks in 2019-2020, you can count on the Rams being at the top of the NFL playoff betting odds next season and take a run at the Saints for top spot in the NFC Divisional odds.


Kansas City Chiefs +800


Though the Kansas City Chiefs missed out on the big game this season, they showed that they’re a force that can’t be denied for long. Defending league MVP Patrick Mahomes will be back, but topping 2018-19 statistically will be hard to do. His dominance has put the Chiefs in the top three spots on the NFL playoffs odds board. Mahomes will have one more year of experience next season, and that may be enough for the Chiefs to officially usher in a changing of the guard in the NFL.


Los Angeles Chargers +800


We’ve heard the skepticism about old QBs time and time again, but after Philip Rivers tied his career-best QB rating and missed his high-water mark in TDs by just two in 2018-19, it’s clear that experience is an asset that pays off around the league. Chargers’ management has surrounded Rivers with offensive talent at RB and WR, so look for him to have another big statistical season and make a push for top spot in both the Super Bowl and AFC Divisional odds.


2020 Super Bowl Underdogs


After finishing with the best record in the NFL, you may be surprised to see the New Orleans Saints considered underdogs. But at +1000, they’ve fallen out of the top four favourites on the NFL betting lines. Many will argue that it should have been New Orleans representing the NFC in Atlanta, but if they’re to return to that stage next season, they’ll need to replace RB Mark Ingram, who’s headed for free agency.


Like the Saints, the Chicago Bears (+1200) are on the outside looking in on the NFL elite. With a made field goal against the Eagles, their playoff story would have been different. But QB Mitch Trubisky will be back for the Bears in 2019 and so will much of Chicago’s lethal defense. The Bears are on the hunt for a new placekicker, and that could be the difference-maker for them. Be sure to check in on Bodog’s developing odds as Week 1 approaches.
