2024 Super Bowl Futures
The Kansas City Chiefs enter the offseason with the shortest odds of all NFL teams with +550 odds to win Super Bowl 58. Find updated 2024 Super Bowl futures for all NFL teams below.
Don’t get me wrong, I love college basketball. Especially when we get to March Madness as it is the best sports time of the year. Leading right into postseason NBA and NHL play, giving us non-stop high-powered action.
Sadly, it is not football and boy do I miss football. The XFL is nice and all but it’s just not the same. With last weekend being the first weekend without any sort of NFL action since the Super Bowl, the creeping depression feeling has now fully taken over as I realized we are without this beautiful sport until September.
On the bright side, just because we are without the NFL until September doesn’t mean we have to wait until then to make some sports bets. While limited for the most part, sports books have released early odds on who will win next year’s Super Bowl.
With the top part of the odds board usually remaining stagnant throughout the course of the season, I like to spend this time seeing which long shots show value. Getting a juicy number now, hoping they find immediate success and carry that number into the postseason.
Let’s see if we can land a few darts into the playoffs.
2024 Super Bowl Futures Best Bets
New York Giants
One of last year’s most popular season win total overs, the Giants surpassed expectations by clearing the number as well as winning a playoff game. Granted they followed it up with an absolute dead against the Philadelphia Eagles, it was still impressive to see as they showed they have a bright future.
Daboll has quickly risen up the ranks as one of my favorite coaches in the league and that is mighty impressive to do as I hate most of them. He has managed to instill confidence behind a mediocre group, having them play at a high rate throughout the full course of a game. This is reflected by their fourth quarter performance, consistently finding ways to put away games.
He has also helped elevate Daniel Jones to the next level, getting him off of fringe status. When not shooting himself in his own foot, Daniel Jones is a capable quarterback that can burn you through the air as well as with his feet. This puts added pressure on secondaries, constantly forcing them to scramble.
Saquon Barkley also looked back to his old self, playing as one of the best running backs in the league after losing out on multiple years due to injuries. Should Jones continue to move forward as a passer, this will open up lanes for Barkley to continue to do work on.
The defense regressed to slightly below average in Def DVOA but there is no shortage of intriguing prospects in this year’s draft. It’s a very deep cornerback class, as well as potential filled pass rushers.
With an astonishing nine picks in this year’s draft, the Giants have no shortage of options of how to attack this. Couple a great draft with their super friendly schedule, and the Giants may be a near lock to make next year’s postseason. Give me them at 40-1 with hedging intentions come playoff time.
Arguably no team got hotter in the second half of the season than the Detroit Lions. Should the Rams have beaten the Seahawks in the last week of the season then they would have been the team no one would have wanted to face early in the playoffs.
Sadly, that was not the case. While the year may have not ended the way they wanted it to, Lions fans can’t help but drool with excitement over the potential of next year. Especially with the NFC looking as weak as ever, only fielding two true threats with the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers.
To kick the offseason off on the right foot, offensive coordinator Ben Johnson decided to stay. Ignoring potential head coaching interest from other teams, citing he likes what Detroit is building. This was major news for Detroit as he was the main catalyst of leading the Lions offense to near top of the league rates this year.
Surrounding Jared Goff with one of the best offensive lines in football, as well as a plethora of playmakers in the backfield and outside, proved to be effective as he led the team to down field success. Johnson’s offense transformed Goff, making him look like a top tier quarterback at times with how lethal Detroit’s offense ran.
This team is not without flaws though as they have serious holes on the defensive end. While they steadily improved throughout the season, they still need serious help in the secondary should they want to be taken seriously.
Lucky for Detroit, the draft is chalk full of capable cornerbacks this year. They have the sixth pick, as well as the 18th, potentially bolstering their defense with two productive rookies. Per my latest mock draft, I have the Lions selecting Oregon’s cornerback Christian Gonzalez with the sixth pick, as well as Clemson’s defensive lineman Bryan Bresee with their 18th.
The front office has crushed every draft since bringing in Brad Holmes, giving the fanbase hope he will continue this level of success in the most crucial one yet. Be sure to shop around as you can find the Lions Super Bowl futures as high as +3000 in some shops.
Staying in the NFC North, the Minnesota Vikings also bring some intrigue that is eerily similar to the Detroit Lions. This may come as a surprise to anyone who has followed my written work or Twitter, labeling the Vikings as frauds throughout the year last season.
Well, that was last year and now I am ready to bury the hatchet.
That is if they fix their horrendous defense, a unit that ranked near dead last in Def DVOA by the end of the season. Especially in coverage, lacking any sort of production on the back end as opposing quarterbacks picked them apart.
They took a step in the right direction, signing Brian Flores as their defensive coordinator. While his recent stint as a head coach may have tarnished his reputation to the public eye, they would be hard pressed to find out that he was once one of the best defensive coordinators in the nation.
He now gets to go back to his roots, giving the Vikings an immediate boost on that side of the ball. As previously mentioned, the draft is full of coverage players and pass rushers, giving the Vikings multiple options late in the draft. I currently have them selecting Alabama’s safety Brian Branch, giving them an anchor on the back end.
Should they follow up the signing of Flores with an excellent draft class, as well as plugging some holes with free agent signings, then the Vikings will be poised for a return to the playoffs.
We already know what their offense is capable of, fielding one of the most dynamic offensive attacks in the nation. Justin Jefferson is one of the best receivers in the league, as well as having a top-5 running back in Dalvin Cook wreaking havoc in the backfield.
Should the Vikings get a defense to put up any sort of fight to complement their offense, then they will be poised for a deep run in a weakened NFC Conference.
