With only four teams left standing — the 49ers, Bengals, Chiefs and Rams — let’s take a look at the updated Super Bowl odds. Also, be sure to check out the top betting sites for NFL football in 2022, as well as tips for how to wager on Super Bowl 56.
Super Bowl 56 Odds Update
|Kansas City Chiefs||+130||+125|
|Los Angeles Rams||+210||+200|
|San Francisco 49ers||+400||+425|
Chiefs favored once again
The lead switched hands four different times as the Bills and Chiefs combined to score 24 points in the final two minutes of their Divisional Round classic. When the music finally stopped, Patrick Mahomes came away with a 42-36 overtime victory over Josh Allen in what promises to be the best rivalry in sports over the next decade.
Kansas City is now a +130 favorite to capture their second Lombardi Trophy in three years after Green Bay’s shocking 13-10 loss to San Francisco on Saturday night. With Aaron Rodgers and the Packers out of the postseason and set for another drama-fueled summer, can anyone beat the Chiefs?

Rams dethrone the Bucs
The Rams (+210) almost choked away a 24-point lead to the Buccaneers on Sunday, becoming just the fourth team in NFL history to lose four fumbles and still come out on top. Nonetheless, Matthew Stafford has to be feeling good after delivering a 44-yard strike to Cooper Kupp in the final seconds to set up a game-winning field goal.
With his critics silenced and Tom Brady vanquished, Stafford now faces a 49ers (+425) team he lost to twice during the regular season. Los Angeles opened as a 3.5-point home favorite – but for Sean McVay to reach his second Super Bowl in his head-coaching career, he’ll have to avoid a seventh-straight loss to Kyle Shanahan.
Bengals a longshot
As a 7-point underdog in Arrowhead this Sunday, Cincinnati (+900) is still viewed as longshot to win the Super Bowl despite being the only team to beat the Chiefs in the past 12 games. In the 34-31 Week 17 comeback win, Joe Burrow threw for 446 yards and four touchdowns while the Bengals defense limited KC to just 50 passing yards and three points in the second half.
While Burrow, kicker Evan McPherson and the rest of the Bengals are oozing confidence and swagger following their 19-16 upset over Tennessee, Mahomes is 4-1 all-time versus clubs he lost to previously that season with a 100+ passer rating in all five contests.

Kansas City is no longer a value at +130 – but getting better than even-odds that Mahomes will string together two more wins isn’t bad given his incredible performance against Buffalo.
The question is whether he will face the surging Niners (+425) or the Rams (+210), who would get the benefit of playing the Super Bowl in SoFi Stadium in front of a home crowd. Los Angeles’ pass rushing combo of Aaron Donald and Von Miller could certainly cause KC the same problems they faced in last year’s big game – however, wagering on the Chiefs still seems like the surest way to double one’s money.
