The Lead Up: 2022 NFL Season
The Los Angeles Rams will kick off the 2022 NFL season following their triumph in last season’s Super Bowl final, dramatically defeating the Cincinnati Bengals 23-20 at SoFi Stadium, California.
Despite their victory, the LA Rams begin the 2022 NFL Season as the fifth-favorites to claim the Super Bowl. The two favorites, neck-and-neck in the betting odds, are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Buffalo Bills.
Top Contenders for the NFL 2022 Season
Buffalo Bills (7.81)
The Buffalo Bills kick off the NFL 2022 season as the favorite to claim ultimate glory following their promising performances last season. While the Bills suffered defeat against Kansas City in the AFC Divisional playoff game, they were seconds away from winning the game.
Last season’s AFC East Champions have snapped up LA Rams sensation Von Miller, while Quarterback Josh Allen made a big step up last season and will look to continue his top form.
With a strong roster from top to bottom, the Buffalo Bills hope to be the first team to win the Super Bowl for the first time since the Philadelphia Eagles back in 2017. However, following two impressive preseason victories over the Indianapolis Colts and Denver Broncos, the Bills will begin the NFL season off the back of a 0-21 defeat to the Carolina Panthers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8.13)
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be the second-favorites to claim the Super Bowl this season having excelled since Tom Brady joined the Florida side two years ago. Tampa failed to build on their 2020 Super Bowl glory last season, losing in the Divisional Playoffs to eventual-winners the Los Angeles Rams.
The Bucs have strengthened with a number of key additions to the squad, such as Shaq Mason and Akiem Hicks. One area of concern would be Tampa’s form leading up to this season, suffering three consecutive pre-season defeats to the Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and Indianapolis Colts.
Nonetheless, QB general Tom Brady’s retirement reversal has galvanised the team and left Bucs fans hopeful of repeating their 2020 glory.
Green Bay Packers (10.40)
The Green Bay Packers came out on top in the NFC North with a 13-4 record, representing their third consecutive division title. However, they were on the wrong end of a betting upset after losing in the Playoffs at the first hurdle to the San Francisco 49ers.
Green Bay have made some big moves in terms of personnel, including re-signing QB Aaron Rodgers for what is likely to be his final season. Recent draft selections Devonte Wyatt and Quay Walker have bolstered an already-formidable defense, although there are shortcomings in the receiver department.
Packers head coach Matt LaFleur enters his fourth season at the helm and made the bold decision of trading standout wide receiver Davante Adams. With the imperious Aaron Rodgers still considered by many as the finest Quarterback in the league, the Packers will always have a shot at greatness while he plays.
Kansas City Chiefs (11.50)
Entering as the fourth favorites, the Kansas City Chiefs went agonizingly close to reaching the Super Bowl final last season. However, the Chiefs threw away a 21-3 lead in their AFC Conference Championship game against the Cincinnati Bengals and fell to a 24-27 overtime defeat.
Kansas City’s biggest strength remains their superstar Quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who led the team to the Super Bowl in 2020 and continued his impressive form last season. However, the loss of wide receiver Tyreek Hill will be a massive hole to fill for the Chiefs.
Los Angeles Rams (12.10)
The incumbent Super Bowl champions are instated as the fifth favorites to claim the Vince Lombardi Trophy after their surprising victory last season. The Rams have lost key players in the off season, including star linebacker Von Miller, which has impacted their betting odds for this year.
Defensively, the Rams will always be in good hands with the likes of Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey in the side. However, shipping an average of over 20 points per game in preseason will be a worry for the LA-based outfit.
Surprise Packages - Outsider Bets
Cincinatti Bengals (25.10)
Despite their excellent run last season, making it all the way to the Super Bowl LVI final, the Cincinatti Bengals don’t even make the Top 10 favorites to claim the trophy this year. The Bengals were just minutes away from ultimate glory before losing the final 23-20, despite entered the fourth quarter with a 4-point lead.
It is fascinating that the Bengals were 125/1 outsiders to win the Super Bowl last year and start this season at around 25/1. While Cincinatti have shored up defensive holes by signing Ted Karras, Alex Cappa and La'el Collins, they remain outsiders to repeat last seasons almost-heroics.
New England Patriots (40.10)
It wasn’t that long ago that the New England Patriots, under legendary pairing Bill Belichik and Tom Brady, were dominating the NFL, winning three Super Bowls in five years between 2015 and 2019.
However, times have changes since Brady’s departure, despite Belichik remaining at the helm. The Patriots finished second in the AFC East and suffered a heavy 17-47 defeat to the Buffalo Bills in the Wild Card Playoff.
Division Champions - The Top Picks
AFC East - Buffalo Bills (1.42)
The prohibitive favorites to claim AFC East glory this season are overall Super Bowl favorites the Buffalo Bills at 1.42.
While the Miami Dolphins (5.22) and New England Patriots (5.78) are certainly in with a good shout, the Bills are probably too strong and look set to claim their third consecutive AFC East title.
AFC North - Baltimore Ravens (2.38)
The Baltimore Ravens have the slight edge over Super Bowl runners-up Cincinatti Bengals (2.68) to take the AFC North division this season.
The Ravens finished bottom of the pile last year but have strengthened in the off season. However, don’t count out another magical season from the Bengals.
AFC South - Indianapolis Colts (1.79)
The Colts suffered an agonizing final day of the NFL 2021 regular season after failing to qualify for the playoffs, losing their final game to 2-14 side Jacksonville Jaguars.
Indianapolis nonetheless start the season as favorites to claim the AFC South, ahead of rivals Tennessee Titans (2.48).
AFC West - Kansas City Chiefs (2.63)
Considered by many as the most dangerous division in the NFL, this season’s AFC West looks set to be a straight shootout between the Kansas City Chiefs (2.63), Los Angeles Chargers (3.23) and Denver Broncos (3.61).
The Chiefs will feel hard-done by last season’s AFC Championship defeat and look as strong as ever to mount a Super Bowl challenge this season.
NFC East - Philadelphia Eagles (2.20)
The Philadelphia Eagles will have to see off stiff competition from the Dallas Cowboys (2.38) to claim NFC East honors this season.
Philly finished last season with a disappointing 9-7 record before going down to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 15-31 in the Wild Card Playoff.
NFC North - Green Bay Packers (1.52)
Considered by many as a live pick to make it to the Super Bowl, the Green Bay Packers are heavy favorites (1.52) to claim the NFC North division.
The Packers may have to fend off a challenge from the Minnesota Vikings (3.54) but are almost certain to make the playoffs one way or another.
NFC South - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1.45)
As the second-biggest divisional favorites in the NFL this season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will hope to build on their 13-4 NFC South finish last year.
While many feel Tom Brady’s best days are past, his leadership and influence will likely take the Bucs a long way this season.
NFC West - Los Angeles Rams (2.30)
Looking to better their 12-5 record last season, the Los Angeles Rams are the slight favorites to top the NFC West once again.
However, a resurgent San Francisco 49ers outfit are hot on their heels at 2.58, while the Arizona Cardinals are the dark horses at 4.94.
Winning Conference: NFC – (2.17)
The odds are stacked in favor of an AFC Super Bowl champion this year (1.69). However, don’t rule out another year of Tom Brady magic guiding NFC-team Tampa Bay Buccaneers to victory, while the Green Bay Packers are also serious contenders.
Most passing yards (regular season) - Patrick Mahomes (8.58)
Quarterback sensation Patrick Mahomes is the second favorite to rack up most passing yards this season behind Los Angeles Chargers wonderkid Justin Herbert (6.66).
Mahomes has the experience edge on the youngster and is worth a punt at 8.58. Last season’s winner Tom Brady is also available at 9.62 if you think he’s still got it.
Best regular season record - Green Bay Packers (7.50)
As the third favorites to claim the best record this season behind the Buffalo Bills (5.51) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6.01), the Green Bay Packers have an excellent shot at beating their 13-4 record last season.
Led by the mastery of QB Aaron Rodgers, the Packers are heavy favorites in their division and look a sound proposition at 7.50.
