What’s on the table today?: Fresh off the heels of the Tampa Bay Bucs 31-9 win in Super Bowl 55 against the Kansas City Chiefs the odds makers are already looking ahead to Super Bowl 56 in 2022.
Don’t be surprised by what you see below (thanks to DraftKings) – the Chiefs are for sure going to be right there. But what about the Packers? Will they load up enough to justify their betting slot? Will Tom Brady play as efficient next year and lead the Bucs to back-to-back Super Bowl appearances?
These questions, at least according to odds makers, are answered with a YES. They expect the Packers and Bucs, along with the Chiefs and Ravens to be among the betting favorites all off-season and potentially into the start of next season.
Yes the games still have to be played, but if you saw what I saw on Sunday, a Tampa D that is ferocious, a 43 (soon to be 44) year old quarterback who can still sling it, I don’t think the folks putting these odds together are off by much. Tom Brady is the G.O.A.T., no question, while Aaron and Mahomes are still top of the crop.
I like where these numbers are at, and unless Brady decided to drop a bomb-shell and retire this week, I expect these to hold for a bit.
KC Chiefs +550
GB Packers +900
TB Buccaneers +900
BAL Ravens +1200
BUF Bills +1200
LA Rams +1200
SF 49ers +1400
