Super Bowl Odds Update After Franchise Tag Deadline

  • BetOnline has updated Super Bowl 54 odds for all 32 NFL teams
  • The Chiefs (+800) and Chargers (+1600) may both be missing star players to start the season
  • The 49ers’ explosive offense could make them surprise contenders at 25/1.

Just hours before the 4pm Monday deadline for franchise-tagged players to sign long-term extensions, the Niners made Robbie Gould the NFL’s highest-paid kicker and defensive tackle Grady Jarrett came to terms with the Falcons on a new four-year, $68 million deal.

That left Texans OLB Jadeveon Clowney as the only player who will have to play under the franchise tag this season. An expected result after news leaked that recently-axed Houston G.M. Brian Gaine and current head coach Bill O’Brien disagreed on whether to make a long-term commitment to the 2014 first-overall pick.

With that business settled and rookie training camps getting underway across the league this week, let’s take a look at the updated Super Bowl 54 odds at BetOnline.

*Odds from 07/16/19.

Kansas City Chiefs

With more twists and turns than your average CW teen drama, the Tyreek Hill situation has yet to be ruled on by commissioner Roger Goodell. Once expected to be kicked out of the league, the Chiefs speed demon is probably looking at a four-game suspension, or perhaps nothing at all.

If the fourth-year wide receiver escapes punishment, expect Kansas City (currently 8/1) to displace New England (6/1) as the presumptive favorite.

Los Angeles Chargers

After announcing he won’t report to training camp without a new contract, Melvin Gordon reignited the age-old debate, is it ever worth it to pay a star running back?

With suitable short-term replacements in satellite back Austin Ekeler and second-year RB Justin Jackson, don’t expect the Chargers to pony up. Following last year’s Le’Veon Bell saga, it’s also unlikely that Gordon leaves too many game checks on the table from his $5.6 million contract.

Despite getting destroyed in the divisional round by the Patriots last season, the Chargers believe they’re “the team to beat in the NFL”.

San Francisco 49ers

Back in March, I openly wondered why a team with a 10-22 record over the past two seasons opened with better odds to win the Super Bowl than half the league. But given that Vegas is obviously quite good at this whole handicapping thing, I’m beginning to see the light.

In addition to the return of dreamboat quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers attack features superstar tight end George Kittle, talented receivers in Dante Pettis and rookie Deebo Samuel, and a stable of running backs that will keep fantasy owners guessing all summer.

This could be the year that Kyle Shanahan snatches the “young offensive mastermind” title back from Rams coach Sean McVay.

Steve Dominey

Steve has almost 15 years of experience in marketing, PR and sports television. After acquiring a Journalism degree from Carleton University, he assembled highlight packs for Canada's most-watched sports network (TSN) before transitioning to a career in communications. He describes himself as a good father, great dog owner, and mediocre gambler and husband.
