Must read

Can you see it, just over the horizon? The dawn of a new NFL season is coming, and with OTAs officially underway, fans have started speculating which teams have the best shot of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy next year. Several big moves have been made, rookies have been drafted, and news has emerged, all of it has helped fans determine the best teams in the league, but nothing is a better indicator of a team’s Super Bowl chances than their betting odds.

While there is still a lot of time for situations to change, injuries to occur, and players to be moved, the potential for each team is more or less agreed upon at this point. We know which teams can win a Super Bowl, and we know which teams will be competing for the first overall pick.

Here’s every NFL team ranked based on their 2025 Super Bowl odds. All odds via BetMGM.

NFL 2025 Super Bowl Odds:

The favorites:

1. Kansas City Chiefs (+600)

2. San Francisco 49ers (+650)

Is it cutthroat to have only two teams in the top category? Absolutely, but the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs have nearly twice as good of odds as the team with the third-best odds speaks volumes. It’s just impossible to bet against Patrick Mahomes. While the AFC is loaded with tons of high-end talent, especially at the quarterback position, Mahomes has proven time and time again that he is the best for a reason. Even last year, during one of the worst statistical seasons of his career, he was masterful when it mattered most, and that’s the only thing that matters.

For the 49ers, sure, they lost Arik Armstead and didn’t bolster their secondary like many people thought they would, but the addition of Ricky Pearsall through the draft could be a bigger addition than most people realize. 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel has always struggled against man coverage. The Kansas City Chiefs ran a ton of man coverage in the Super Bowl. So, what do the Niners do? They go out and get the college receiver with the second-highest success rate against man coverage last year. It’s a good fit on paper and should give Brock Purdy more open looks in those situations. A Super Bowl rematch between these two teams could definitely be on the table.

The contenders:

3. Baltimore Ravens (+1100)

4. Detroit Lions (+1200)

T-5. Buffalo Bills (+1400)

T-5. Cincinnati Bengals (+1400)

T-5. Houston Texans (+1400)

T-5. Philadelphia Eagles (+1400)

9. Green Bay Packers (+1600)

10. Dallas Cowboys (+1800)

11. New York Jets (+2200)

12. Miami Dolphins (+2500)

Of all of these teams, the Dallas Cowboys seem relatively low based on their previous success. Sure, they got bounced in the Wild Card round becoming the first No. 2 seed ever to lose to a No. 7 seed. Still though, they’re a very tough team in a division that doesn’t have many threats other than the Philadelphia Eagles, who fell off tremendously in the second half last year.

The Cowboys still have a strong defense with the ability to force a lot of turnovers. CeeDee Lamb and Dak Prescott have a special connection. Jake Ferguson has emerged as a very serviceable tight end, and although the team lost Tony Pollard, he wasn’t that effective last year anyway.

The dark horses:

13. Atlanta Falcons (+2800)

T-14. Chicago Bears (+3000)

T-14. Los Angeles Rams (+3000)

T-16. Cleveland Browns (+4000)

T-16. Los Angeles Chargers (+4000)

T-16. Pittsburgh Steelers (+4000)

19. Jacksonville Jaguars (+5000)

T-20. Indianapolis Colts (+6600)

T-20. New Orleans Saints (+6600)

T-20. Seattle Seahawks (+6600)

The Cleveland Browns have an elite defense, a very strong offensive line, a quarterback that (even though he was abysmal last year) has proven effective in the past, and while Nick Chubb is still hurt, he should be able to return by the end of the season.

Yes, they play in arguably the toughest division in football, but they have all the pieces in place to be one of the best squads in football.

The longshots:

T-23. Las Vegas Raiders (+8000)

T-23. Minnesota Vikings (+8000)

T-23. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+8000)

26. Arizona Cardinals (+10000)

27. Denver Broncos (+12500)

T-28. New England Patriots (+15000)

T-28. New York Giants (+15000)

T-28. Tennessee Titans (+15000)

T-28. Washington Commanders (+15000)

32. Carolina Panthers (+25000)

The Minnesota Vikings went 7-10 last year with Josh Dobbs, Nick Mullens, and Jaren Hall quarterbacking more than half of their games. Sure, they will be relying on a rookie quarterback, but it’s a rookie quarterback that knows how to win and has some of the best targets in the game there to help him transition to the NFL.

Minnesota’s defense could certainly improve from last year, and that’s why they went out and added Dallas Turner, who was considered by many to be the best defensive player available in the draft. If McCarthy pans out, this Vikings team could be very dangerous. While they will still be playing in the crowded NFC North, there’s enough to like about this team to warrant a small bet if you’re looking for a massive payout.
