Odds Against Your Team Winning Super Bowl 54

- Kansas City Chiefs -365

The Baltimore Ravens are the clear-cut odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl and this team has everything. QB? Check. Rushing attack? Check. Big pass catching TE? Check. Speedy wide-receivers? Check. Defense? Check. Experienced coaching? Check, check, check! The only glaring setback? Lamar Jackson’s lack of playoff experience.
Kansas City Chiefs
Kansas caught fire down the stretch run, but the Chiefs have a glaring lack of a rushing attack (23rd) combined with the fact that they struggled to stop the run by allowing 128.2 yards per game on the ground (26th).
San Francisco 49ers
Despite winning an impressive 13 games, San Francisco struggled to pass the ball at times (13th) while also finishing 17th against the run. The Niners are also thin on talent at the skill positions outside of superstar tight end George Kittle.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers might have won 13 games this season, but Green Bay has a serious lack of talent at the skill positions, not to mention the fact that they finished the regular season ranked a modest 15th in scoring (23.5 ppg) while struggling mightily to stop the run (23rd).

Minnesota has a star in running back Dalvin Cook and an elite defense, but the Vikings also finished 23rd in passing while losing four of nine road games this season and finishing 15th against the pass.
Simply put, Seattle is far too reliant on Russell Wilson to make plays on offense. The Seahawks are injury-ravaged at running back and they’ve been mediocre at best defensively in finishing 22nd in points allowed (24.9 ppg).
Tennessee has an elite rushing attack and superstar in running back Derrick Henry, but the Titans don’t have a ton of talent at the skill positions and their 24th-ranked pass defense could doom them against the likes of Patrick Mahomes or Lamar Jackson if they do manage to upset the Chiefs in the divisional round.
Like Seattle, Houston is far too reliant on their superstar quarterback to make plays for them on offense. Oh yeah, and there’s also the fact that the Texans allowed more points per game (24.1 ppg) than they averaged this season (23.6 ppg).
