Super Bowl LVIII (2023/24) Futures: Odds open

Super Bowl LVIII (2024 Super Bowl): odds opening with the Kansas City Chiefs as the favorites to win. No, Philadelphia is not the second favorite.

In the world of sports-betting futures, when one market closes, it just means another market is about to open up. The Kansas City Chiefs claimed the 2023 Super Bowl on Sunday night behind a strong second-half performance that will have Philadelphia Eagles fans dismayed.

The betting odds for the 2024 Super Bowl (LVIII), which will be played in Las Vegas, have been released. As is the case a good part of the time, the team that just claimed a title has started as the favorite for the next season (odds from bet365).

Super Bowl favorites for next year (2024)

  1. Kansas City Chiefs 11/2 (+550)
  2. Buffalo Bills 13/2 (+650)
  3. San Francisco 49ers 13/2 (+650)
  4. Philadelphia Eagles 8/1 (+800)
  5. Cincinnati Bengals 9/1 (+900)
  6. Dallas Cowboys 12/1 (+1200)

Next in line are the LA Chargers, the New York Jets, the Baltimore Ravens, and then the Green Bay Packers. If you feel like you can predict a year's worth of random football injuries, surprise trades, and game-changing penalty calls then feel free to make your pick. The only tip that we'll offer at this point is that you want to go with really long odds for a market that will not be settled for a year -- unless you have an early cash-out in mind.

As far as longshots go that appear to have the drive to improve, you could name the Carolina Panthers. They are out at 50/1 with bet365's opening odds, a short time after hiring Frank Reich as their new head coach.
