Not always content to just kick back and enjoy the summer months, football fans are eagerly counting the days until the start of the 2022 NFL season, scheduled to begin in early September. While every team is in the thick of preparing for the campaign to come, bookies are already beginning to crunch the numbers.
But NFL odds can still vary by surprising margins, depending on where you choose to look. This is why SBO does things a little differently, cutting through the noise to bring insights that can make a real difference, comparing the value of odds and promotions at the most reputable online sportsbooks. These are backed by honest reviews and a reliable ratings system.
Carefully looking through some of the leading betting sites, we already have five clear candidates to win the Super Bowl LVII title, due to be held at the State Farm Stadion in Glendale, Arizona on February 12, 2023. What’s more, the Green Bay Packers are seriously considered to be amongst the best five prospects, heading into the 2022 NFL campaign.
Having registered a league-low 163 passing yards per game in 2022, Clutch Points are predicting the Bills will have the best pass defense again in 2022. Star quarterback Josh Allen is also tipped to win the NFL MVP award in 2022, although they will probably want to avoid facing the Kansas Chiefs again, after such a dramatic Playoffs exit last time out. The Bills are priced between +600 and +650, making them firm Super Bowl favorites right now.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Back at the start of February this year, iconic quarterback Tom Brady announced his retirement. Just forty days later, and after much restructuring activity at the franchise, Brady decided to reverse his decision and return for the NFL 2022 season. Had that not happened, it’s unlikely the Buccaneers would be as highly valued, yet heading into the next campaign, they range between +700 and +1000 to win Super Bowl LVII.
Kansas City Chiefs
Ever since Patrick Mahomes burst onto the scene, then became their starting quarterback, the Kansas City Chiefs are now seen as habitual Super Bowl contenders. They managed to achieve success in Super Bowl LIV against the 49ers, then fell horribly short against the Buccaneers at Super Bowl LV. In 2021 destiny seemed to beckon until the AFC Championship game, losing against the Bengals. This time the Chiefs are backed at +900 low and +1150 high odds.
Los Angeles Rams
They had been solid all year with a 12-5 record through the regular season, yet it was during the NFL Playoffs when the Los Angeles Rams truly exploded. Coincidentally, at Super Bowl LV the Tampa Bay Buccaneers became the first team to win the title in their home stadium, but were beaten by the Rams on their path to Super Bowl LVI, becoming the second against the Cincinnati Bengals at the SoFi Stadium. The Rams are between +1000 and +1200 for back-to-back success, last achieved by the New England Patriots in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
Green Bay Packers
Back up at the start of this article, we mentioned the importance of comparing odds with different online sportsbooks, as they can vary quite significantly from one site to the next. Checking a broad selection of the latest available odds, the Green Bay Packers are viewed as being on par with the Los Angeles Rams, who were capable of going all the way last season, lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy at Super Bowl LVI.
Most interesting of all, the Packers have been given significantly shorter odds compared to any team listed after them in the early betting stakes, when checking the futures markets at numerous bookies. This bodes well because it suggests confidence, indicating the Packers are strongly viewed as one of the best five teams in the NFL right now, and genuine Super Bowl contenders.
Managing to retain Aaron Rodgers is a big plus in those considerations for the Packers, although the big test will be how the team adapts after losing star receiver Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. But numerous alternatives are available to the Green Bay franchise, and only time will tell if quality can emerge from the quantity.
The Packers boast one of the best defensive units, bolstered by linebacker Quay Walker and defensive tackle Devonte Wyatte in the NFL Draft. Finally, most fans of the Packers would agree that in the last Playoffs, the special teams unit was a huge disappointment. Hiring Rich Bisaccia as the Special Teams Coordinator should remedy those problems. Valued at odds between +1000 and +1200, the Packers are seen to be more of a complete package.
“Carefully looking through some of the leading betting sites, we already have five clear candidates to win the Super Bowl LVII title……”
The one and only flaw in winning a Super Bowl Title, is the mere fact you have to earn a spot to be in the Super Bowl…to win it.
The Packers have earned a spot to be in one Super Bowl, in the last 24 seasons.
So…you can hang your hat on somebody’s betting odds if you like.
But i subscribe to a different theory….reality.
They can possibly win a Super Bowl, sure.
But, lets cross that bridge when/if they get into the Super Bowl, then we’ll have two weeks to bask in the possibility of another Super Bowl Title.
Betting odds 🤩…lol
I love you guys 😁
Lancaster blew his main assignment on the blocked field goal. Black blew his main assignment on the blocked punt for a TD. Bojorquez had his punt blocked and also had several bad holds for field goals and PATs during the season. None of those three were offered contracts. What is the betting odds that Wirtel who was blown up on the blocked punt and had several bad and slow snaps on punts/field goal attempts during the season makes the 53 man roster?
It’s called betting odds Kevin. Buffalo, KC, Tampa, GB, LA Rams, all would have better SB odds than Detroit, Houston, Jacksonville because they have better personnel and are run by better organizations. But since you don’t acknowledge that the Packers are a well run organization, you’ll have none of it. Before you can get to the SB, you first have to get to the playoffs. The Packers are a perennial playoff team and this year will be no exception. See how that works? Make the playoffs get a chance for the big game and increase your SB odds. That’s the reality. I know it’s all so very complicated for you.

Before you can get to the SB, you first have to get to the playoffs.
Yea….that always helps doesn’t it sweetheart.
How about…before you get to a SB you have to get to the playoffs….AND WIN.
Or….before you get to a SB you have to get in the playoffs and reach….the NFC Championship game….AND WIN.
It’s not just a matter of getting into the playoffs and then……keeping your fingers crossed…or, throwing a coin down the wishing well.
Two…HOF QB’s could only get to one SB in the last 24 years Princess
I wonder why that is.
But sure…..salivate over your betting odds of winning the Super Bowl…maybe dream of it at night…tuck those (winning) odds under your pillow and dream of the Packers being crowned Super Bowl Champions…again.
Sweet dreams Princess.
Did anyone expect the Cincinnati Bengals to go to the SB last year? In fact, dumb ass you said we’d go into Cincinnati and dominate the Bengals. I said not so fast, Joe Burrow and the Bengals were better than advertised. And sure enough they gave the visiting Packers all they could handle. And once they got into the playoff tournament Cincinnati got hot and made it all the way to the big game. Are you saying then that Joe Burrow and Matthew Stafford are better than Aaron Rodgers because he can’t win in the playoffs? Could we actually be agreeing on something? “ Maybe you’ve heard this one Kevin, “defense wins championships.” When is the last time you ever heard anyone say “stats wins championships.” Let me help you with that one, no one has ever said that. The theory goes, Aaron Rodgers is good enough to get you to the playoffs, but once your there, your on your own. And if this defense is as good as it looks, then then it’s not out of the question, once January rolls around, this defense could carry us to the SB. But that would require acknowledging Brian Gutekunst is a good GM. You and the girls would rather lose in the playoffs than admit that. We’d have to stay healthy of course, but our odds are better than most. Bettors and pundits alike can see that even if you and the girls don’t.

“In fact, dumb ass you said…………”
That’s where you go off the rails Gomer.
Lol…When the fuck did you ever quote anyone accurately?
Who are you to call anyone a dumbass?…lol
I have total understanding, if in fact, society has shunned you, which seems likely.
I dont say stupid shit like…Murphy was a NFLPA attorney, or…..that the Packers guaranteed a players 5th year option (after the draft) before he even got into Green Bay.
Anyone who says stupid shit like that is truly..the dumbass
But then again…we aren’t exactly breaking new news there.
I understand, the blogs and researching players you obsess over is your life.
But seriously…try to do better.
Please…if you insist in being here when you know for fact, nobody here likes you, try to act like a big boy and stop your juvenile ramblings
Thank you for trying to understand.
Look Kevin, you girls love to tell each other how great and wonderful Aaron Rodgers is. And he is during the regular season. This is a playoff team even if you, Cheese, Ferris and the rest of you Einstein’s say otherwise. Once we get in the playoffs, Rodgers could get hot like Burrow, the defense could carry us, we could rush our way to a SB. There are multiple ways for the Packers to get there. It’s not all on Erin’s delicate little shoulders. That’s a good thing. Most are bullish on the Packers chances. You and the Aaron Rodgers fan club have no faith in your hero and therefore are negative. That happens when your 6-8 in your last 14 playoff appearances. Can’t say that I blame you. The difference is I believe in management. While you blame management for Rodgers shortcomings.
Which Viking players do you obsess over ?
What about the Viking GM ? Do you believe in him ?
Tell us what you really think.
