Super Bowl 54 Odds Update Before First Preseason Game

  • BetOnline has updated Super Bowl 54 odds for all 32 NFL teams in advance of the 2019 Hall of Fame Game
  • The Patriots (+600) and Chiefs (+800) are the AFC favorites
  • The Rams (+1000) and Saints (+1000) are atop the NFC

The NFL preseason begins Thursday, Aug. 1, with the annual Hall of of Fame Game in Canton, Ohio. With Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez and Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey among the eight men getting bronze busts this year, it’s only fitting that Atlanta and Denver do battle (for a whole quarter before the backups enter the game and Al Michaels gets bored).

While the next month will surely bring training camp and preseason injuries that will shift the odds for Super Bowl 54, let’s look at BetOnline to see if there are any longshots worth wagering on.

Denver Broncos (50-1)

It has been one rough ride for GM John Elway since the Broncos won Super Bowl 50. In 2016, he made Paxton Lynch a first-round selection. Then, Trevor Siemian started a bunch of games, Brock Osweiler made a return cameo, and Case Keenum was shipped out faster than an Amazon Prime delivery.

This year, the quarterback legend believes Joe Flacco is entering his prime at age 34, and new coach Vic Fangio already doesn’t sound too optimistic about Elway’s second-round pick Drew Lock.

On the bright side, poaching Fangio from the Bears should help put the D back in Denver. Super Bowl MVP Von Miller is targeting a DPOY and a sack title, Bradley Chubb is coming off a 12-sack rookie season, and free-agent signing Kareem Jackson should help Chris Harris shore up the secondary.

Buffalo Bills (66-1)

After finishing second in the league in total defense last year, Buffalo added nimble DT Ed Oliver (No. 9 overall pick) to a defense that already boasts sack-artist Jerry Hughes, young lockdown corner Tre’Davious White, ballhawk linebacker Matt Milano and sophomore LB Tremaine Edmunds, who is quickly becoming the AFC’s answer to Carolina’s Luke Kuechly.

Despite only playing in 12 games, Josh Allen’s 631 rushing yards led the Bills last season. If the 2018 no. 7 overall pick can supplement his electric ground game with improved accuracy (he was last in the NFL with a 52.8 completion percentage in his rookie year), Buffalo could be a sneaky playoff contender.

Carolina Panthers (50-1)

Cam Newton’s surgically-repaired throwing shoulder is looking strong in training camp, yet the Panthers are somehow still available at 50-1.

I continue to pound the table for Carolina because the 2015 NFL MVP is working with the best weapons of his career, including speedy young receivers DJ Moore and Curtis Samuel and superhuman Christian McCaffrey, who is aiming to become the third-ever member of the 1K/1K club (1,000 yards rushing and 1,000 yards receiving in the same season).

The Panthers defense should also be much-improved after bringing in veteran DT Gerald McCoy to join Dontari Poe and Kawann Short on the front line.

Carolina remains the best value in all of Vegas.
