Who are the favourites to win the 2022 Super Bowl?

The Kansas City Chiefs head into the new NFL season as the pre-season favourites to win the Super Bowl.

Andy Reid’s side were in the same position 12 months ago, albeit they were defending champions at the time.

Kansas City were beaten by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Super Bowl back in February, and the Florida franchise are currently the sportsbooks’ second favourites.

The reigning AFC champions have made some interesting off-season roster changes, notably in the Tackle position where both Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher have been released. It will be interesting to see if they are sufficiently replaced given how badly the Chiefs protected Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl.

Bashaud Breeland, Le’Veon Bell and Sammy Watkins are other notable departures.

Tampa Bay came good in the final weeks of last season before upsetting the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship game and the Chiefs themselves in the Super Bowl. Tom Brady collected a record seventh Super Bowl ring in the process.

The GOAT turned 44 last week but will continue to have an excellent offense to work with heading into the new season. Rob Gronkowski, Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown and Leonard Fournette were all given contract extensions.

Buffalo Bills surprised a few last season by making the AFC Championship and will start the new season as the bookmakers’ third favourites to go all the way for the first time in their history. Their 12/1 price is narrowly shorter than the Baltimore Ravens, who had headed into the season as favourites two years ago and second favourites last season.

Quarterback Lamar Jackson fails to impress once it gets to the post-season. The youngster has had experienced receiver Sammy Watkins to the depth chart this summer, though Mark Ingram, Willie Snead, DJ Fluker and Orlando Brown have all departed.

The Ravens are closely followed by the LA Rams and San Francisco 49ers but punters may find value in the Green Bay Packers at 16/1 following the announcement that Aaron Rodgers is staying.
