- Kansas City (14-3) is favored to win Super Bowl 57 after securing the No. 1 seed in the AFC
- San Francisco (13-4) and Philadelphia (14-3) are the NFC’s top Lombardi Trophy contenders
- Super Bowl 57 kicks off from State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Sunday, February 12 at 6:30pm ET on FOX
This was supposed to be the season that Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs fell back to earth and perhaps even failed to make the playoffs. But after winning its seventh-straight division title and securing a bye with a 14-3 record, Kansas City is the Super Bowl favorite heading into the postseason.
Super Bowl 57 odds
|Kansas City Chiefs||+340||+350|
|San Francisco 49ers||+475||+500|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||+2000||+2800|
|Los Angeles Chargers||+2200||+2500|
|New York Giants||+6000||+6500|
Chiefs favored over Bills
Kansas City (+350) is favored over Buffalo (+350) after securing the No. 1 seed in the conference. While Andy Reid’s club benefitted from the cancellation of the Bills/Bengals game, they will have to play the Bills on a neutral site if both teams advance to the conference championship. In Patrick Mahomes’ four previous playoff appearances, he’s led his team to two Super Bowls (winning one) and lost in overtime in two AFC Championship Games.
Chances are the Chiefs will be playing for the conference title again this year. They will likely host the Los Angeles Chargers (+2500) or Jacksonville Jaguars (+5500) in Arrowhead in the divisional round next weekend. Meanwhile, Josh Allen’s Bills will welcome Joe Burrow and the Cincinnati Bengals (+800) to Orchard Park for a highly-anticipated rematch of their cancelled Week 17 contest.

49ers or Eagles in NFC?
Philadelphia (+550) tied the Chiefs with an NFL-best 14-3 record. Yet, the 49ers (+500) are the favorites in the NFC after reeling off 10 straight wins. With seventh-round rookie Brock Purdy looking like the second-coming of Tom Brady, San Francisco has dominated opponents of late.
Kyle Shanahan can dial up plays for Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle, who are all miraculously healthy heading into Super Wild Card Weekend. Nick Bosa is also a lock for Defensive Player of the Year after recording 18.5 sacks for the No. 1 defense in the NFL.
The Eagles ended a two-game losing streak with a 22-16 victory over the Giants on Sunday. Nick Siriani’s club may have peaked too early, but two more weeks of rest for Jalen Hurts’ ailing shoulder could do wonders.
Super Bowl longshots
Dallas (+1400) had won six of seven contests before dropping a meaningless matchup with the Commanders on Sunday. With many expecting them to get upset by Tom Brady and the Buccaneers (+2800) on Monday night, this is a good time to bet on the Cowboys. With Micah Parsons, CeeDee Lamb and Tony Pollard, Jerry’s club has difference-making stars on both sides of the ball.
Could Trevor Lawrence and the Jaguars (+5500) go on a Super Bowl run like Joe Burrow and the Bengals did last year? Or like Doug Pederson’s Eagles back in 2018? With an improving defense, there’s a lot to like about a Jacksonville team that’s riding a five-game win streak into the postseason.

Before the start of Super Wild Card Weekend, we have Cincinnati (+800) winning the Lombardi Trophy in Arizona this February. Joe Burrow is a perfect 3-0 versus Patrick Mahomes and is more than up for the challenge of winning on the road in Buffalo and KC in consecutive weeks.
Super Bowl 57 Prediction: Cincinnati 27, San Francisco 23
