They’re top title favorites that will almost certainly contend. Okay, let’s get down to business.

Super Bowl 53 Odds for Every Team

Philadelphia Eagles +850

The Eagles have a blossoming superstar at quarterback and plenty of talent at the skill positions. Now, all the reigning champs need to do is add a couple of defensive players like defensive tackle Dontari Poe or maybe cornerback Aaron Colvin and a couple of offensive linemen and they’ll be in Super Bowl contention for years to come.

Los Angeles Rams +1750

Hell, after the season the Rams had this year, Los Angeles doesn’t need to do anything but stay the course. A couple of offseason additions and a smart draft could put L.A. in the driver’s seat for a berth in Super Bowl 53 if this season was any indication. At +1750, the Rams are offering a ton of value.

New Orleans Saints +1850

The Saints don’t do anything on offense, but they could add some more talent on the defensive side of the ball. Maybe sign Panthers free agent defensive tackle Star Lotulelei or Sheldon Richardson.

Jacksonville Jaguars +2000

I have no idea why the Jags aren’t higher up on the board, but after reaching the AFC championship and offering a +2000 return, I’m thinking they’re one of the biggest ‘must-bet’ teams on the board. The Jaguars should have better Odds to win Super Bowl LIII. If they can either add another quarterback like Kirk Cousins, Eli Manning, or even better, Baker Mayfield through the 2018 NFL Draft, to replace the mediocre Blake Bortles – and add a speedy, pass-catching running back to pair with Leonard Fournette and another wide receiver (Jarvis Landry?) or tight end, the Jags could be in business next season in a big way!

Seattle Seahawks +2500

Seattle fired their offensive coordinator, but what they really need to do is overhaul their offensive line (again) and address their running back situation (again). At this point, not even their superstar quarterback can carry them to a Super Bowl.

Kansas City Chiefs +3000

The Chiefs could contend if Pat Mahomes turns out to be the gun-slinging star that Andy Reid believes he’ll become and Reid stops his nice guy act, like immediately. It’s sickening and he keeps coming up short come playoff time because of it!
