Following the 2022 NFL schedule release, fans and bettors are reviewing teams' schedules, season win totals, and odds to win the Super Bowl in NFL futures. But some early season picks and bets to win the 2023 Super Bowl can get you started with making those futures bets.
Best Super Bowl Bets
1. Los Angeles Chargers (+1600)
The Chargers play in the strongest division in the AFC, and a playoff spot and run to the playoffs will be well-earned. A third-year Pro Bowl quarterback in Justin Herbert and top-offense last year combined with upgrades and improvements on defense in a second-year system make the Chargers potential to rise to top-tier NFL status and Super Bowl contender legit. Those close losses in recent seasons turn into wins in 2022.
2. Los Angeles Rams (+1100)
The Super Bowl champion Rams face the most difficult schedule in 2022 based on last year's win records (164-125, or .567%). Los Angles plays in the strongest division in the NFC, and these Super Bowl odds offer little value. But the top-level talent with a generational WR in Cooper Kupp and QB Matthew Stafford's emergence in the Rams system makes Los Angeles a viable threat again.
3. Minnesota Vikings (+4000)
Adding a longshot recognizing that the Cincinnati Bengals were more than twice these odds last year and made it to the Super Bowl. So many close losses for the Vikings in 2021 ended the coaching tenure and Minnesota goes out with the old and in with the new. But the roster is solid and elite talent on offense for undervalued QB Kirk Cousins to deliver to those weapons. The defense struggled last season but much-improved performance is expected. The Vikings have a very favorable December schedule to make a late push, and the NFC North is ripe for takeover with Green Bay coming back to the pack.
