The 2022 Super Bowl is set to take place at the brand new state-of-the-art SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Last year’s Super Bowl was held in Tampa, and the hometown Buccaneers won that title over the Kansas City Chiefs.
There is a chance that there could be another hometown team playing in this year’s Super Bowl, as well as the Los Angeles Rams are one of the top picks to win the title. Los Angeles currently has odds set at +800 to win the Super Bowl, but those odds have shortened over the last few weeks.
The Rams still aren’t the betting favorite to win the Super Bowl, but they are in the conversation. It is the Buffalo Bills and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +600 that currently share those honors, but there is still plenty of football to be played.
The Los Angeles Chargers aren’t completely out of the discussion yet either, as they are listed at +2700. These odds are going to continue to move over the next few weeks as the division and conference races get sorted out.
Who Wins the NFC West?
The NFC West was supposed to be one of the toughest divisions in the NFL to begin the year, and it’s started to work out that way. Instead of a four-team race developing, though, it looks as if it will come down to the Rams and the Arizona Cardinals.
Arizona has now built up a pretty comfortable lead over the Rams, and they have moved into the favorites at -250. This doesn’t mean that things will end up this way, but Los Angeles has some work to do if they are going to catch them.
Bills a Lock in AFC?
It has been the Kansas City Chiefs that have dominated the AFC over the last few years, but there appears to be a new leader. The Buffalo Bills are now the betting favorites to win the AFC, and they look like a team that will be hard to beat.
Buffalo is sitting at +250 to win the AFC, but the Chiefs are in the next group right behind them. Kansas City and the Tennessee Titans are both at +500, and they aren’t fun teams to deal with either.
MVP Race Heating Up
The Rams brought Matthew Stafford over from Detroit to give them a better chance at winning a title, and Stafford has played well to begin the year. Stafford is on the shortlist of MVP candidates, with odds currently set at +850.
You might not be surprised to hear this, but Tom Brady is once again a favorite to win the MVP Award with odds set as low as +320. Brady has the Buccaneers off to another great start, and he is having one of the best years of his career.
The favorite to win the MVP Award at this time is Josh Allen of the Buffalo Bills. Allen was a popular pick to win the award in the preseason, and those odds have now shortened to +240.
