While fans in Tampa Bay are probably still a little woozy from celebrating the Buccaneers winning Super Bowl 55, the rest of us are still trying to wrap our heads around Tom Brady winning his 7th championship. As we contemplate the offseason, which will include the draft and veteran players changing addresses, very few of us are probably giving Super Bowl 56 any real thought. The reality, though, is that the bookies are on the ball and have already posted their super early odds for next year’s title game. There are some fans who like to get in early with the betting, but you can bet that the odds we mention here will change as those expected moves come in the offseason. For now, let’s see which teams the bookies fancy to win Super Bowl 56 so you can start planning your bets and place them against their Super Bowl odds.
Super Early Odds to Win Super Bowl 56 Preview
Kansas City Chiefs (+500)
While the Chiefs accomplished something special in reaching their second straight Super Bowl, they came up short in the big game. Disappointing as that certainly is for them, this is a team that looks set to be good for a very long time, so it is perhaps not surprising that they are in as the favorite for Super Bowl 56. The Chiefs are solid from top to bottom, plus they have arguably the best QB in the league in Patrick Mahomes. Getting to consecutive Super Bowls is tough and making it to three in a row in this day and age is tougher still. I would not count this team out, though, as they are just that good.
Green Bay Packers (+800)
This is a bit of a surprise given that we do not know what the status of league MVP Aaron Rodgers will be next season. There are going to be a lot of QBs on the move this offseason, and while the Packers have publicly said that they want their man back under center next season, Rodgers does not seem ready to make any decision about staying or moving on just yet. If Rodgers does decide that he wants to stay in Green Bay, then the Packers certainly need to be considered a legitimate Super Bowl threat.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+800)
By the time the new season begins, Tom Brady will be 44, which is an age where most professional players have long since hung up the pads. With each passing season, we all get roped into the conversation about the GOAT eventually hitting a wall, but we saw no sign of that wall approaching last season, as Brady was his usual brilliant self, landing yet another championship and Super Bowl MVP. This Bucs team is stacked and as long as Brady can still play at a high level, they have a chance to win it all again.
Buffalo Bills (+1100)
One of the biggest surprises last season was the emergence of Josh Allen at QB for the Buffalo Bills. Fans were beginning to talk about Allen potentially sliding into the bust category, but he silenced those folks by delivering a fantastic regular season, while also helping the Bills make it all the way to the AFC Championship Game. Climbing to the top of the mountain while the Chiefs are still stacked is going to be tough, but the Bills have certainly established base camp.
