Super Bowl 2023 (ie. Super Bowl LVII or Super Bowl 57) will be played on Sunday, February 12th, 2023. The belligerents are yet to be determined but the oddsmakers and betting public have their opinions on who is likely to win the game. Here’s a look at the betting odds to win this year’s Super Bowl as the Divisional Round approaches (source: Unibet).
Super Bowl LVII odds: Kansas City Chiefs favored
- Kansas City Chiefs: +310 (31/10)
- Buffalo Bills: +333 (about 33/10)
- San Francisco 49ers: +450 (9/2)
- Philadelphia Eagles: +475 (27/4)
- Cincinnati Bengals: +800 (8/1)
- Dallas Cowboys: +1000 (10/1)
- New York Giants: +3000 (30/1)
- Jacksonville Jaguars: +3300 (33/1)
The matchups this coming weekend will see the KC Chiefs hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are starting to look like their season is coming to an end.
Most of the teams that had quarterbacking issues this season have already been eliminated. Either they did not make the playoffs, like the Carolina Panthers, or they were ousted in the divisional round, like the Miami Dolphins. The only team that’s still alive in the playoffs that had major QB drama is San Francisco.
Jacksonville has developed some drama in the QB position as Trevor Lawrence remains questionable for the game. The NFL playoffs don’t usually suffer teams with QB issues to pass through to the next round so the Jags look like they are in big trouble as they face the prospect of beating the Super Bowl favorites, on KC’s home field, maybe without Lawrence. Friday’s news updates will be huge for Jacksonville’s prospects.
The other Saturday game will see the Philadelphia Eagles hosting the New York Giants. On Sunday, the remaining four teams will play for their spot in the conference finals. The San Francisco 49ers will host the Dallas Cowboys and the Buffalo Bills will host the Cincinnati Bengals.
It’s these latter two games that hold the most intrigue. If you look back at the odds, there is a huge dropoff between the 6th and 7th favorites (ie. the Cowboys and the Giants). The Sunday games look like the ones to watch as each team that plays on Sunday has high hopes of making the championship game still.
