As will happen in a long campaign, there have been ebbs and flows to the 2022 National Football League season.

After 13 weeks, both the AFC and NFC East divisions had all four teams at .500 or above, and should take up a lot of the playoff spots come mid-January.

While the playoffs might be a goal for some young teams that might be building after years in the wilderness (New York Jets and Giants, for example), most teams that get into the postseason will want to end the season with some silverware, with the Vince Lombardi Trophy the ultimate prize.

But only one team will end their year with that trophy, with 12 teams that eventually make the playoffs going home empty-handed: one, of course, will win the conference trophy but lose the Super Bowl.

What all fans and bettors want to know is, which team is going to win the title.

Right now, after the first week of December, we are right back to where we were after the first few weeks, with the Buffalo Bills the favorites, just ahead of Kansas City and Philadelphia.

The fifth choice, San Francisco, looked to be a live bet until Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending broken foot suffered in a win over Miami. It was the second major injury to a 49ers’ quarterback this year and could tank their chances to win the NFC and Super Bowl.

But one team’s misfortune could be another’s lucky break, and it could open up the NFC to the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles, who had just three losses combined going into Week 14 of the regular season. Or maybe the Dallas Cowboys, who have suffered playoff heartbreak for the better part of three decades since they won three titles in four years back in the mid-1990s.

As said, the odds in the AFC with most sports books have seen the Bills and Chiefs at the top since the futures first came out way back in February. Of course, neither of those teams actually played in Super Bowl LVI: the AFC representative was the Cincinnati Bengals, who have shaken off a slow start to move up the standings, the odds, and the online sports betting offers in Iowa.

One team to watch out for is Miami: the Dolphins have been building all year, and have the weapons to do some damage in the playoffs.

So, which team would you take, right now, if you had to pick a Super Bowl winner?

Here are the odds for the top 15 teams to win: remember, only the top seven teams in each league get into the postseason, with the top seeds in each conference getting a first-round bye.


Team Super Bowl LVII odds

Buffalo Bills +400

Kansas City Chiefs +500

Philadelphia Eagles +500

Dallas Cowboys +750

San Francisco 49ers +1000

Cincinnati Bengals +1400

Baltimore Ravens +1800

Minnesota Vikings +1800

Miami Dolphins +2000

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +2500

Tennessee Titans +4000

Seattle Seahawks +4500

Los Angeles Chargers +6000

New York Jets +10000

Washington Commanders +10000

Whichever team you pick from that board will offer you value, and there are likely to be some changes over the final month of the NFL campaign.

One thing is for sure: we will not have a repeat champion, as the Los Angeles Rams will not make the postseason. Will we see a new name step into the limelight, much like the Bengals did last winter?
