With Week 2 of the NFL Preseason set to begin this Thursday night, we should get a better look at some of the starting units from around the league.

Many of the familiar contenders' odds to win the Super Bowl in 2019 have held steady through the first week of the preseason, with the New England Patriots leading the pack at +700, according to FanDuel Sportsbook. However, the Indianapolis Colts and Los Angeles Rams have both seen a recent drop in their odds to win Super Bowl LIV.

While we should see the majority of starting quarterbacks on a handful of drives this week, Andrew Luck is one that will not be taking the field in Week 2. If it seems as though Luck is always banged up, it's because his latest injury issue practically confirms that he has been.

Luck started training camp with what was described as a calf issue, but this issue has now been reported to be a high ankle injury. This has likely been a major cause for the Colts' latest drop in their Super Bowl odds from +1400 to +1500, which moves them to the sixth-best odds to win it all this season.

Behind the Patriots, the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints' odds have also remained unchanged, at +800 and +900, respectively. The Los Angeles Rams have seen a slight drop to +1100, while the Philadelphia Eagles have improved from +1500 to +1400. The Oakland Raiders and Washington Redskins fell the farthest in the latest update, dropping to +10000 and +11000, respectively.

We still have three long weeks of preseason action left to go, which will likely result in more updates in the odds to win the Super Bowl prior to the start of the regular season.
