The Chiefs rallied to beat the Eagles 38-35 in Super Bowl LVII, and already the sportsbooks are looking ahead to the next season. It should come as no surprise that Super Bowl MVP Patrick Mahomes and company are the favorite to repeat in 2023. Here’s a look at the early odds to win Super Bowl LVIII.
It should be noted that the game will be played on February 11, 2024 at the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada.

KANSAS CITY (+600)
Again, no surprise here. The Chiefs have won the AFC West Division in each of the last seven seasons. They have played in the last five straight AFC championship games and have won two Super Bowls in that span, including this year’s, which we predicted.
Kansas City has some draft capital and a solid amount of salary cap space heading into the new season. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman become free agents, so the Chiefs will have to make some decisions regarding the wide receiver position, but their roster will once again be able to compete for championships.
Buffalo has won three straight AFC East titles with Josh Allen at quarterback. The Bills went 13-3 last season, but lost to Cincinnati 27-10 in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. It was a letdown after such a solid regular season.
The team had to deal with the whole Damar Hamlin incident late in the season and that may have carried over into the playoffs. The Bills may have significant turnover on defense where Jordan Poyer and Tremaine Edmunds are free agents.
SAN FRANCISCO (+900)
The fact that the Niners are near the top of the board is a tribute to the roster that Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch have built. The quarterback position is in limbo. Trey Lance is expected to take over as the starting quarterback after Jimmy Garoppolo was allowed to become a free agent. Brock Purdy is scheduled to undergo major elbow surgery.
Meanwhile, the outstanding supporting cast, led by Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle, will return next season. The team will need to make preparations for the possibility of losing some players to free agency, including Jimmie Ward and Samson Ebukam.
Even though Philadelphia has the draft capital to build around Jalen Hurts, the Eagles don’t have the salary cap space to keep a number of their notable free agents. Those include Miles Sanders, Isaac Seumalo, Jason Kelce, Fletcher Cox, Robert Quinn, Brandon Graham, Javon Hargrave, T.J. Edwards, and James Bradberry. It’s possible that Nick Sirianni’s team in 2023 takes a step backwards if they lose a majority of those free agents.
As the Bengals prepare to ink Joe Burrow to a long-term deal, there will be some difficult decisions to make regarding the roster. There is a possibility that the secondary will be decimated because Eli Apple, Tre Flowers, Jessie Bates, and Vonn Bell are all expected to become free agents.
Additionally, there is already widespread speculation that the team will part ways with Joe Mixon or Tee Higgins in order to clear salary cap space. Nevertheless, with Burrow and Ja’Marr Chase leading the way, the Bengals have the makings of a team that can compete year after year.
The Cowboys are in the familiar position of having to make some difficult cap decisions due to the impending free agency of key contributors such as Dalton Schultz, Tony Pollard, Leighton Vander Esch, and Anthony Brown. It is possible that Ezekiel Elliott’s contract could be renegotiated, which would provide the Cowboys with some breathing room. However, the Cowboys need to keep Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, and Micah Parsons.
The decision of head coach Mike McCarthy to fire offensive coordinator Kellen Moore and call offensive plays himself could turn out to be the most significant move of the offseason.
Nobody knows for sure if the relationship between the Ravens and QB Lamar Jackson will last through the upcoming season. If the Baltimore Ravens are able to keep him, they will undoubtedly be a strong contender. New offensive coordinator Todd Monken, formerly of CFB national champion Georgia, may also help the team’s chances.
Baltimore absolutely needs to get younger on defense and offense, and it’s possible that veteran free agents like Jason Pierre-Paul, Kyle Fuller, Marcus Peters, and Justin Houston will be let go in the near future.
LA CHARGERS (+2000)
After an early exit in the AFC playoffs, there was some speculation about head coach Brandon Staley’s job. He’ll stay, but the team did make some significant adjustments to their assistant coaching staff after he was retained.
The most high-profile change is the hiring of Kellen Moore, who formerly served as the offensive coordinator for the Cowboys. This is good news for Chargers QB Justin Herbert. The biggest issue for the Chargers in 2023 will once again be competing with the Chiefs in the AFC West.
