2021 Super Bowl LV Betting Odds Favorites

Kansas City Chiefs +675

It’s no wonder the defending Super Bowl champs have been installed as prohibitive favorites heading into the 2020 season. The Chiefs have a future Hall of Fame head coach that may be the best offensive mind in the game today. Oh yeah, Kansas City also has arguably the best quarterback in the game today in Patrick Mahomes, not to mention a plethora of speedy skill position players including Pro Bowl wide receiver Tyreek and tight end Travis Kelce. Their underrated defense finished seventh in points allowed (19.3 ppg) and the Chiefs have youth on both sides of the ball. As long as Reid and Mahomes are joined at the hip, Kansas City will contend for Super Bowl titles for years to come.

Baltimore Ravens +700

Like their AFC counterparts in Kansas City, Baltimore has an excellent head coach in John Harbaugh that already has one Super Bowl title to his name. The Ravens also have a superstar at quarterback in the record-setting Lamar Jackson and both, youthful exuberance and veteran leadership on both side of the ball. Last but not least, Baltimore has an outstanding defense that finished third in points allowed (17.6 ppg). 

San Francisco 49ers +1100

The Niners have a phenomenal defense that finished eighth in points allowed last season (19.4 ppg) and a powerful rushing attack that finished second in yards per game and an offense that finished an identical second in scoring (29.9 ppg). Frisco also has arguably the best tight end in the game today in George Kittle and a young superstar defensive end in Nick Bosa. Unfortunately, the 49ers’ biggest question mark is at quarterback where Jimmy Garoppolo is good, but certainly not great. 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers +1200

The Bucs are listed as one of the top Super Bowl favorites, but I’m not sure that should be the case right now. Yes, Tampa Bay added future Hall of Fame quarterback Tom Brady, but the man often called the greatest signal-caller in NFL history looked like an aging signal-caller in New England last season and no matter how good he is in 2020, he can’t help a defense that finished 30th against the pass and 29th in points allowed (28.1 ppg). 

New Orleans Saints +1400

The Saints have a superstar future Hall of Fame quarterback in the ageless Drew Brees and a dual-threat star in running back Alvin Kamara. New Orleans also has arguably the best wide receiver in football in Michael Thomas and an underrated defense that finished a respectable 13th in points allowed (21.3 ppg) and some serious motivation after having their Super Bowl hopes excruciatingly crushed in stunning fashion in each of the last three years. 

Dallas Cowboys +1500

The underachieving Cowboys have moved on from former head coach Jason Garrett in favor of Super Bowl-winning head coach Mike McCarthy. Dallas has a very good, if not great, quarterback in Dak Prescott and some serious talent at the skill positions in running back Ezekiel Elliott, pro Bowl wide receiver Amari Cooper and now, rookie wideout CeeDee Lamb. Dallas finished sixth in scoring in 2019 (27.1 ppg) and 11th in points allowed (20.1 ppg). Hey might not be getting mentioned as a legitimate Super Bowl favorite, but I think the Cowboys should be. 

2021 Super Bowl LV Betting Odds Value Selections

Seattle Seahawks +2000

I don’t think there’s a better ‘value’ pick on the board than the Seahawks. Seattle has a superstar quarterback in Russell Wilson that is as good as any signal-caller in the game today and already has one Super Bowl ring in his pocket. The Seahawks have an excellent running back in Chris Carson (1,230 yards) and another underrated star in veteran wide receiver Tyler Lockett (1,255 yards). Last, but not least, Seattle has a beloved head coach in future Hall of Famer Pete Carroll and some young talent on defense that should help them improve in 2020 after finishing 22nd in points allowed a year ago (24.9 ppg). 

Pittsburgh Steelers +2500

Another team that I believe is a great value pick in the Pittsburgh Steelers. Veteran quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be back on the field after missing almost the entire 2019 campaign. Pittsburgh has an outstanding defense that finished a stellar fifth in points allowed a year ago (18.9 ppg) and a head coach that was the youngest in NFL history to win a Super Bowl title in Mike Tomlin. The Steelers also have great ownership that has helped the franchise have sustained success that dates all the way back to the 1970s. If Pittsburgh contends in 2020, I won’t be surprised at all and you shouldn’t be either. My other top value picks are the New England Patriots, (+2700), Indianapolis Colts, (+2700), Minnesota Vikings, (+3300) and the Tennessee Titans, (+4000). 

2021 Super Bowl LV Betting Long Shot Picks

Chicago Bears +7500

The Bears have an excellent defense that finished in the top 10 across the board last season, including a stellar fourth in points allowed (18.6 ppg). While Chicago struggled mightily on offense in finishing 29th in scoring (17.5 ppg), I believe the addition of Super Bowl-winning quarterback Nick Foles will remedy the offensive woes that were mostly due to quarterback Mitch Trubisky’s awful play under center. No one has Chicago on the radar as a Super Bowl contender, but maybe they should. 

Los Angeles Chargers +3300

Last, but not least, I think the L.A. Chargers are also a good Super Bowl longshot selection. Yes, the Bolts are coming off a dismal 5-11 campaign in 2019, but they’ve moved on from aging quarterback Philip Rivers and have a young stud in former Oregon signal-caller Justin Herbert that will take over for mistake-free veteran Tyrod Taylor at some point in the very near future. The Chargers also have a ton of talent on the defensive side of the ball that should be a lot better than they were a year ago in finishing a respectable 14th in points allowed (21.6 ppg). No, they won’t beat out Kansas City for the AFC west division crown, but the Bolts could surprise in a big way in 2020 if you ask me.
