Chiefs installed as heavy Super Bowl LVI favorites

·2 min read
Super Bowl LV - Tampa Bay Buccaneers v Kansas City Chiefs

The Kansas City Chiefs hit a significant bump in the road Sunday night, but sportsbooks anticipate their march toward a dynasty revving back up in six months.

The Chiefs were installed as heavy favorites to win Super Bowl LVI by several sportsbooks before Sunday night, including being offered at +490 by FanDuel. Those odds didn't waver shortly after Kansas City was routed 31-9 in Super Bowl LV by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Chiefs are well ahead of the Bucs, Buffalo Bills and Green Bay Packers, who were all being offered at +1100 on Sunday night immediately after the game. That trio was followed by the Los Angeles Rams (+1200), who have acquired quarterback Matthew Stafford since losing to the Packers in the Divisional Playoffs.

The San Francisco 49ers are being offered at +1300 by FanDuel, with the Baltimore Ravens having the third-shortest odds among AFC teams at +1400.

DraftKings is offering the Chiefs at +550 to win Super Bowl LVI, followed by the Bucs and Packers at +900 and no other team listed with shorter odds than +1200 (Baltimore, Buffalo and the L.A. Rams). The sportsbook listed the 49ers at +1400.

The Lions, who acquired Jared Goff in the Stafford deal, are the longest shots at FanDuel at +12000. The next longest odds belong to four teams at +8000: the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, Jacksonville Jaguars and the Washington Football Team. The WFT is coming off winning the NFC East, but enter the offseason with major questions about the team's quarterback situation for the 2021 season.

DraftKings is offering the Lions at +10000 along with the Houston Texans, who enter the offseason with franchise quarterback Deshaun Watson pushing to be traded.
