Rank Team  Super Bowl Odds Notes
1 Buffalo BillsBuffalo Bills logo +600 After adding Von Miller, Bills enter the 2022 NFL season as Super Bowl favorites. Led by one of the league’s top defenses and NFL  MVP favorite Josh Allen, Buffalo is expected to be the team to beat in the AFC in 2022.
2 Los Angeles RamsLos Angeles Rams logo +1100 Fresh off of winning Super Bowl LVI, Los Angeles brought back most of the key players on its playoff roster. The biggest question mark in L.A. right now is the health of QB Matthew Stafford’s right arm.
3 Tampa Bay BuccaneersTampa Bay Buccaneers logo +900 Tom Brady’s retirement didn’t last long and its hard to overreact about a 45-year-old veteran missing part of training camp. As long as Brady is under center, the Bucs will be Super Bowl contenders in the NFC.
4 Los Angeles ChargersLos Angeles Chargers logo +1100 Quarterback Justin Herbert has broken all sorts of NFL records in his first two NFL seasons. One of the frontrunners for NFL MVP, Herbert will benefit from an improved Chargers’ defense in 2022. Khalil Mack joins Joey Bosa in LA to form one of the league’s top pass rushing duos.
5 San Francisco 49ersSan Francisco 49ers logo +1600 The 49ers aren’t favored to win the NFC West but will still be tough to beat in 2022. Head coach Kyle Shanahan put his faith in Trey Lance and the 49ers’ season will likely depend on the development of the former No. 3 overall pick.
6 Cincinnati BengalsCincinnati Bengals logo +1600 Last year, the Bengals put the league on notice by making a surprising Super Bowl run.  A year later, Cincinnati is the favorite to win the AFC North. An improved offensive line should give quarterback Joe Burrow enough time to dissect opposing defenses in 2022.
7 Green Bay PackersGreen Bay Packers logo +1200 Quarterback Aaron Rodgers will be without one of his top weapons after the team dealt Davante Adams to the Las Vegas Raiders. Green Bay will move forward with Allen Lazard, along with rookies Romeo Doubbs and Christian Watson on the outside.
8 Kansas City ChiefsKansas City Chiefs logo +1000 With Tyreek Hill now in Miami, the Chiefs offense is expected to be less reliant on generating big plays in 2022. Look for a more efficient season under center from Patrick Mahomes as Kansas City looks to contend in a loaded AFC West division.
9 Denver BroncosDenver Broncos logo +2200 The Broncos sold for a record $4.65 billion in the offseason. Russell Wilson joins a team with a top-10 defense and instantly propels the Broncos into the shortlist of Super Bowl contenders. First, Denver will have to get through the AFC West.
10 Baltimore RavensBaltimore Ravens logo +1800 Do the Ravens believe that they can win a Super Bowl with Lamar Jackson at quarterback? Jackson enters Week 1 of the NFL season without an extension and the team traded away Hollywood Brown, his top receiver.
11 New Orleans SaintsNew Orleans Saintslogo +4000 Jameis Winston showed flashes of improvement before getting injured in 2021. With a healthy Michael Thomas, plus new additions Jarvis Landry and rookie Chris Olave, Winston could be in for a bounce back year.
12 Indianapolis ColtsIndianapolis Colts logo +2200 After giving up on the Carson Wentz experience, the Colts elected to move forward with savvy veteran Matt Ryan. The former Falcons’ quarterback enters the season with 107 career losses, the most among active NFL quarterbacks.
13 Philadelphia EaglesPhiladelphia Eagles logo +2000 After adding AJ Brown in a deal with the Tennessee Titans, the Eagles are giving quarterback Jalen Hurts the support necessary to take a step forward this year. A revamped offensive line should also help Hurts and the Eagles offense move the chains with consistency.
14 Dallas CowboysDallas Cowboys logo +2200 Led by second year linebacker Micah Parsons and cornerback Trevon Diggs, the Cowboys have the potential to be a top-10 defense. The big question mark in Dallas is whether the offensive line will be able to keep the ground game going without Tyron Smith.
15 Miami DolphinsMiami Dolphins logo +4000 Tua Tagavailoa has all of the necessary tools to take a step forward in Year 3. Tyreek Hill joins Jaylen Waddle as one of the top wide receiver duos in the NFL but the addition of Pro Bowl left tackle Terron Armstead might be Miami’s biggest offseason acquisition.
16 Las Vegas RaidersLas Vegas Raiders logo +3300 Veteran quarterback Derek Carr is expected to guide one of the NFL’s top offenses in 2022. The arrival of Davante Adams changes how opposing defenses can attack the Raiders and will free up opportunities for both Darren Waller and Hunter Renfroe over the middle of the field.
17 Arizona CardinalsArizona Cardinals logo +4000 Kyler Murray’s contract stole most of the headlines during the offseason but the Cardinals failed to keep up with the rest of their NFC rivals. Without DeAndre Hopkins for the first six weeks, Arizona will have its hands full contending with the Rams and 49ers in the NFC West.
18 Tennessee TitansTennessee Titans logo +4000 How big will the loss of Harold Landry be for a team that relies on its defense to win games? A top-10 pass rusher in 2021, Landry leaves a big hole on a Tennessee team that already has question marks on offense entering the year.
19 New England PatriotsNew England Patriots logo +5000 Mac Jones leads an overhauled Patriots offense. Newcomer Davante Parker is expected to have a major role in the Pats’ revamped passing game. Bill Belichick did not name an offensive or defensive coordinator in 2022. The last time he did that, the Patriots went 14-2.
20 Pittsburgh SteelersPittsburgh Steelers logo +8000 Mike Tomlin has never had a losing season as an NFL head coach. Meanwhile, Steelers’ starting quarterback Mitchell Trubisky is 29-21 as a starter and hasn’t had a losing record since going 4-8 as a rookie in 2017. With a top-notch defense and skilled players on offense, the Steelers could surprise some teams in the AFC.
21 Cleveland BrownsCleveland Browns logo +4500 The Browns have a top-tier defense and strong running game, which should be enough to keep them in most games until Deshaun Watson returns from suspension. But for now, Cleveland’s season rests in the hands of backup Jacoby Brissett, which won’t make Browns’ fans very comfortable in a tough AFC North.
22 Minnesota VikingsMinnesota Vikings logo +3300 Can the Vikings stay healthy enough to contend in the NFC North? With Dalvin Cook in the backfield and Justin Jefferson out wide, Minnesota has one of the best running backs and wide receivers in the NFL. However, the Vikings ranked 24th in the NFL in points allowed and 30th in yards allowed per game in 2021.
23 New York GiantsNew York Giants logo +12500 The Giants are counting on a big leap forward from QB Daniel Jones, who will have a healthy cast of playmakers after an injury-riddled 2021 campaign. Saquon Barkley is back behind a revamped offensive line that features No. 7 overall pick Evan Neal. Meanwhile, No. 5 pick Kayvon Thibodeaux could be a game-changer for the Giants’ defense.
24 Washington CommandersWashington Commanders logo +12500 Washington will be counting on Carson Wentz to turn back the clock to contend in the NFC East race. With Chase Young still recovering from an ACL injury, the Commanders defense may also need some time to get up to speed in 2022.
25 Jacksonville JaguarsJacksonville Jaguars logo +12500 New Jaguars head coach Doug Pederson brought in an offensive-minded staff to help with the development of QB Trevor Lawrence. Jacksonville’s defense will also improve, thanks in part to the pass rushing duo of Josh Allen and No. 1 overall pick Travon Walker.
26 Detroit LionsDetroit Lions logo +12500 The Lions had a quiet offseason but made some moves that could make a big impact on both sides of the ball. The defense also gets a boost thanks to No. 2 overall pick Aidan Hutchinson. Following a 3-13-1 year, things are finally looking up in Detroit.
27 Atlanta FalconsAtlanta Falcons logo +25000 Atlanta shipped Matt Ryan to Indianapolis and supplanted him with veteran Marcus Mariota. A former No. 2 overall pick, Mariota served as a backup in Tennessee and Las Vegas but was a league average QB as a starter. With Cordarelle Patterson, Drake London, and TE Kyle Pitts, the Falcons could shock some teams with Mariota under center.
28 New York JetsNew York Jets logo +10000 Zach Wilson’s injury could mean that the Jets will need to wait to see if the former No. 2 pick is indeed their QB of the future. New York did a lot of things right in the offseason, including drafting CB Ahmad Gardner, WR Garrett Wilson DE Jermaine Johnson II and RB Breece Hall in the first two rounds.
29 Carolina PanthersCarolina Panthers logo +12500 Carolina drafted Ikem Ekwonu with the No. 6 pick, which should help the Panthers hold down the left tackle spot for the next decade. QB Baker Mayfield will have the benefit of playing with Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore, two of the premiere players at their position.
30 Chicago BearsChicago Bears logo +15000 The Bears got rid of head coach Matt Nagy, which was the right choice. The team also moved on from Khalil Mack and cut a few other veterans to clear up cap space, signifying the start of a new era in Chicago. Still, QB Justin Fields projected to play behind one of the worst offensive lines, which means the offense could struggle.
31 Seattle SeahawksSeattle Seahawks logo +15000 After trading Russell Wilson to the Denver Broncos, football fans are sleepless in Seattle. Head coach Pete Carroll opted to start Geno Smith in Week 1, a sign that the Seahawks aren’t ready to hand the reins over to Drew Locke. No matter who’s under center, the Seahawks might be tough to watch in 2022.
32 Houston TexansHouston Texans logo +30000 Houston moved on from Deshaun Watson and received a significant return from the Browns, which is step in the right direction for the Texans. Davis Mills will get another chance to prove himself under center. If Mills can take a step forward, Houston could move up this list soon.

Green Bay Packers logo

+1600 The Packers let Davante Adams go in the offseason and didn’t reload with any proven weapons at WR. The move didn’t pay off in Week 1, as QB Aaron Rodgers threw for under 200 yards and finished without a TD in a 23-7 loss versus the Vikings.
12 San Francisco 49ers
(0-1)

+2000 The Trey Lance experiment got off to a slow start in Chicago.  Lance completed fewer than 50 percent of his passes for 164 yards and an INT in a 19-10 loss versus the Bears. 49ers fans are hoping that the inclement weather played a role in the offense’s struggles.
13 Minnesota Vikings

+2200 The Vikings dominated the Packers in a statement Week 1 win. Justin Jefferson exploded for 184 yards and 2 TDs in the 23-7 win. Meanwhile, Kirk Cousins improved his head-to-head record versus Aaron Rodgers in the process.

15 Indianapolis Colts
(0-0-1)Indianapolis Colts logo
🔻 3
(12)
+2500 The Matt Ryan era in Indianapolis got off to a slow start, as the Colts’ offense stalled through three quarters. Despite a Week 1 tie, the Colts remain atop the division standings, as no AFC South teams were able to win their season-opener.

+10000 Brian Daboll told his players that he was going to be aggressive as the Giants’ head coach and he stayed true to his word in Week 1. New York escaped Tennessee with a 21-20 win over the Titans after a 2-point conversion with 1:06 remaining.
18 Pittsburgh Steelers

+6600 Carson Wentz silenced doubters in Week 1, throwing for over 300 yards with 4 TDs in a 28-22 comeback win over the Jaguars. Turnovers were still a problem though, as Wentz threw two costly interceptions in the win.
20 Las Vegas Raiders

(16)
+4000 Former college teammates Derek Carr and Davante Adams looked in sync in Week 1. Adams finished with 10 catches for 141 yards and a touchdown but the Raiders’ offense was ineffective otherwise in a 24-19 loss versus the Chargers.
21 Arizona Cardinals

28 Carolina Panthers

+15000 Baker Mayfield brought the Panthers’ offense to life in the fourth quarter against his former team. Head coach Matt Rhule will have to get CMC and DJ Moore more involved, as the two stars combined for just 18 touches in the Week 1 loss.

+800 It took some time but Tom Brady and the Bucs got over the hump against the NFC North-rival New Orleans Saints in Week 2. The bigger concern in Tampa Bay is the state of Brady’s wide receiver corps. The Bucs played without Chris Godwin and Julio Jones while Mike Evans was ejected (and suspended) for his role in a brawl vs the Saints.

+1000 Philadelphia dismantled Minnesota 24-7 on Monday Night Football, as cornerback Darius Slay Jr. shut down Vikings’ WR Justin Jefferson in the win.

+1400 Herbert gutted out a tough 27-24 loss against the Chiefs and made some remarkable throws after getting hurt. The Chargers’ QB fractured rib cartilage and is “day-to-day” but remains questionable heading into Week 3. At 1-1, the Chargers will need a healthy Herbert to compete in the loaded AFC West.
6 Miami Dolphins

+2500 The Dolphins stunned the Ravens with a 21-point fourth-quarter comeback on Sunday to improve to 2-0. Tua Tagavailoa threw 6 TDs and threw for 469 yards in the win and dispelled any concerns about his arm strength by connecting on two TD passes for 48 yards or longer.

+1600 Los Angeles lost focus late in what appeared to be a blowout win against the Falcons. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey sealed a 31-27 win with an interception in the end zone in the final moments.

+1400 Aaron Rodgers bounced back from his Week 1 debacle by throwing 2 TDs in a 27-10 win over the Chicago Bears. While Rodgers continued his dominance against the Bears, the Packers are now a perfect 10-0 following a loss under head coach Matt LaFleur.

+4000 The wrong Jameis Winston showed up in the fourth quarter of the Bucs-Saints game, as he threw interceptions on three consecutive drives against his former team. After throwing just 3 INTs in 2021, Winston has already matched that total after last week’s performance against Tampa Bay.

+6600 The Giants are now 2-0 under head coach Brian Daboll. Not only has the offense flashed improvement but New York’s defense has held opponents to a 21.7 percent conversion rate on third down under new defensive coordinator Don Martindale, the best mark in the NFL
13 Denver Broncos

+2500 Denver didn’t earn any style points in a 16-9 win over the Houston Texans in Week 2. Russell Wilson completed fewer than 50% of his passes in a sloppy win, as the Broncos were flagged 13 times and racked up 100 penalty yards on the day.
14 Minnesota Vikings

+2200 Following a season-opening win against Green Bay, Minnesota didn’t look like a team that could contend for the NFC North crown in Week 2. The Vikings mustered one touchdown and only 4.5 yards per play in a 24-7 loss to the Eagles on Monday Night Football.
15 Cleveland Browns

+6600 Through two games, the Browns defense has given up a whopping 34 fourth quarter points. After barely surviving in Week 1, Cleveland gave up 14 points over the final 1:31 against the Jets to fall to 1-1. Luckily for Cleveland, the Steelers, Bengals, and Ravens also lost in Week 2.
16 Cincinnati Bengals

+3500 The Super Bowl hangover is real in Cincinnati. Back-to-back losses to the Steelers and Cowboys have the Bengals sitting at the bottom of the AFC North standings through two weeks. Even more concerning: QB Joe Burrow has been sacked a whopping 13 times in two games.
17 Indianapolis Colts

Ryan threw three crippling interceptions as the Colts abandoned the run game, leaving RB Jonathan Taylor with only eight carries and 12 total touches in the 24-0 loss. It marked the third time since 2017 that the Colts were shut out versus the Jaguars.

+7500 Offensive coordinator Matt Canada has come under fire for the Steelers’ performance on offense through two games.

Pittsburgh ranks 30th in the NFL in total offense at just 255 yards per game.

+5500 New England may have saved its season with a 17-14 road win in Pittsburgh in Week 2. The Patriots may have also found their identity in the win, rushing for 124 yards as a team. At 1-1, New England will still have its hands full in the AFC East, which features the Super Bowl-favorite Bills and up-and-coming Miami Dolphins.
20 Arizona Cardinals

+4500 Kyler Murray’s late-game scramble and a fortunate fumble recovery for a touchdown in overtime helped Arizona avoid an 0-2 start. While the Cardinals survived a scoreless first half against the Raiders, the seat could start to heat up for head coach Kliff Kingsbury. Arizona has lost six of its last eight games dating back to last season.
21 Washington Commanders

+8000 Washington couldn’t overcome a 22-0 halftime deficit on the road in Detroit. Carson Wentz threw for 337 yards with 3 TDs and 1 INT in a 36-27 loss versus the Lions on Sunday. Entering Week 3, Wentz is second in the NFL in passing and appears to have complete command of the Commanders’ offense.
22 Dallas Cowboys

+4000 In their first week without starting QB Dak Prescott, the Cowboys gutted out a home win versus Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals. Backup Cooper Rush finished with 235 passing yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys, who rode their defense to a much-needed win.  However, 3 of Dallas’ next 4 games are against NFC East teams.
23 Detroit Lions

+10000 The Lions’ offense has been one of the most underrated stories of the NFL season. Through two weeks, Detroit fourth in total offense and second in points per game. Meanwhile, Jared Goff has thrown for 6 TDs and only 1 INT in two games.

+5000 The Josh McDaniels era is off to a poor start in Las Vegas. After going up 2-0 on Sunday, Derek Carr and company managed just 48 yards in the second half of an OT-loss versus Arizona. To make matters worse, Davante Adams was limited to just 2 catches for 12 yards.

+7000 There are plenty of questions in Tennessee following a 41-7 drubbing versus the Buffalo Bills on Monday Night Football. After winning the AFC South in each of the past two seasons, the Titans appear a long way from being a playoff team right now. Luckily, the Jaguars are the only AFC South team with a win heading into Week 3.

+10000 Trevor Lawrence had his best day as a pro in the 24-0 win over Indianapolis. The Jaguars’ defense continues to be a bright spot in Jacksonville but let’s not read too far into Sunday’s win. Jacksonville is 6-30 in its last 36 games; four of those wins have come against the Colts and three of them were shutout victories.

+17500 What a difference a week makes for the Jets offense. Veteran QB Joe Flacco threw for over 300 yards for the second consecutive game, adding 4 TDs and 0 INT in a clutch 31-30 comeback win over the Browns. New York took advantage of a recovered onside kick to score twice in the final 1:31 and earn its first win of the season.
28 Chicago Bears

+20000 Chicago seemed hesitant to put the ball in Justin Fields’ hands in Week 2. The second-year QB threw just 11 passes and ended up 70 yards through the air in the loss. While he nearly added a second rushing touchdown with a stretch on a fourth-and-goal, Fields has left a lot to be desired through two games.
29 Seattle Seahawks

+25000 Three turnovers and some questionable play-calling led to a 27-7 loss versus the 49ers in Week 2. After managing just 36 rushing yards last week, QB Geno Smith and the Seahawks will need to go back to the drawing board in a winnable matchup versus Atlanta in Week 3.
30 Houston Texans

(27)
+25000 The Texans opened the regular season with tough matchups against Indianapolis and Denver. While Houston should have escaped with a 1-1 record during that span, it’s a good sign that the defense has shown life under new head coach Lovie Smith.
31 Carolina Panthers

+25000 Baker Mayfield had the Panthers on the cusp of a win for the second straight week but Carolina couldn’t seal the deal at home against the New York Giants. Through 2 games, Mayfield has completed just 53.6 percent of his passes with only two touchdowns.
32 Atlanta Falcons

+50000 The Falcons have covered the spread in each of their first two games of the season but still wind up at the bottom of our list this week. Atlanta collapsed in Week 1, then showed some resolve in a tough loss against the Rams last week.
