Complete List of Super Bowl 56 Futures Odds
Super Bowl 56 Futures: Early Favorites
Kansas City Chiefs (+500)
Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs may have lost the battle at Super Bowl LV, but the war is far from over between them and the rest of the league.
Kansas City is still well-equipped entering the offseason in its bid for three-straight Super Bowl appearances, with the core of Mahomes, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill locked, loaded and ready to make opposing secondaries look foolish once more. A few upgrades on defense will go a long way towards building another title-contending squad that could be even better than the past two seasons, and that’s something that the entire NFL would have to be fearful of all over again. As long as the Chiefs have Patrick Mahomes, whose peak is still ahead of him, this team will be a fixture atop Super Bowl 56 futures odds.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+850)
Despite just winning Super Bowl 55, the Buccaneers only have the second-best odds of repeating in 2022, according to the latest Super Bowl 56 futures odds. Nevertheless, Tom Brady and Co. are still the front-runners amongst all NFC teams right now, and it’s equally frightening to imagine the heights that Tampa Bay can reach with a few more improvements.
Brady will finally have a full offseason to get more familiar with his top offensive weapons like Mike Evans and Chris Godwin, who were both surprisingly underutilized during the win against Kansas City. Even better is the fact that the Bucs have the eighth-best salary cap situation in the league, with over $28 million in cap space to work with in building another playoff contending roster.
Super Bowl 56 Futures: Early Dark Horses
Dallas Cowboys (+3,300)
Was there any other team in 2020 that was more snakebitten than the Cowboys?
The offseason in Jerryworld will be fascinating to watch, as Dallas has to make a decision regarding whether or not the team will still be carried by Dak Prescott long-term, especially with the former Offensive Rookie of the Year coming off a serious, season-ending ankle injury.

THE 2021 NFL SEASON
All the latest odds and lines for all weekly NFL games are now available at Nitrogen Sports.
The chances of Prescott returning under center as the franchise QB of America’s Team remains high, considering that Jerry Jones built his 2020 team with a high-flying offense in mind and with the top-tier QBs on the market like Deshaun Watson and (possibly) Aaron Rodgers all having heavy price tags. That being said, the Cowboys still shouldn’t take their eyes off of any additions on defense to make them more well-rounded on both sides of the ball and not have their season greatly hinge on the health of Prescott all over again.
Pittsburgh Steelers (+3,300)
Speaking of defenses, that’s one aspect that the Steelers have excelled at over the past couple of seasons. However, that very same D broke down at the worst possible time, surrendering a whopping 48 points in the loss to the Browns in the AFC Wild Card Round.
How can Mike Tomlin fix his team’s late-season meltdown in 2020 with hardly any wiggle room financially this offseason? Pittsburgh has the fourth-worst salary cap situation in the league at over $30 million in the red. The team’s going to ask a lot out of veteran QB Ben Roethlisberger on offense, as each valuable piece on defense is bound to become unfeasible budget-wise.
Alternatively, the Steelers could also suck up the dead money tied to Big Ben if they were to cut him this offseason and go for a full rebuild on offense. Roethlisberger remains as the highest-paid player on the roster by a mile, and the Steelers’ odds of winning their seventh Lombardi Trophy value as a playoff contender will depend on the two-time Super Bowl champions’ status as the team’s starting QB next season.
Super Bowl 56 Futures: Early Huge Reach
Detroit Lions (+12,500)
There are several other teams in the NFL in as bad a position as the Lions right now, with the Texans and Jets immediately coming to mind. However, Houston and New York technically still have their respective starting QBs from last season on the roster, while Detroit does not.
The Lions recently shipped long-time franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Rams in exchange for a younger yet more inexperienced arm of Jared Goff. While Goff could certainly change the offensive culture, he’ll likely endure growing pains in the Motor City under the guidance of first-year head coach Dan Campbell.It will be interesting to see how the Lions will fare in the coming season in relation to their Super Bowl 56 futures odds.
Not to mention that the Lions still have plenty of work to do in overhauling one of the worst defenses in the league from last season.
