A few months more before the National Football League (NFL) annual league championship game. Many spectators are excited to witness this football spectacle, which is deemed one of the biggest team sports matches every year. The game will feature the most incredible talents in today’s generation of elite football players. Besides the powerhouse of football stars, many are also looking forward to the halftime show, which will showcase the most prominent performers we know today.
Besides casual game spectators, sports bettors are more excited about this annual event. As early as now, many are referencing online resources to decide which team to bet on in the big game. You have probably reached this blog as you seek more hints on the winning teams in the Super Bowl.
1. San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers remain the heavy favorite in the Super Bowl LVIII. The team has been trailing the Kansas City Chiefs and finally taking the lead against the reigning Super Bowl Champion in the FanDuel Super Bowl odds. In 2024, it will be their 75th time to play in the National Football League. Last season, the team earned the top spot in the National Football Conference – Western Division. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch will lead the team.
Presently, the 49ers have five Super Bowl titles, 7 Conference Championships, and 21 Division Championships. Why should they win the 2024 Super Bowl? The 49ers have the biggest bargain in professional sports in the name of quarterback Brock Purdy. He has been putting up MVP numbers as the cheapest starting quarterback in the NFL, which gives the 49ers a chance to win the Super Bowl back-to-back.
2. Kansas City Chiefs
As the reigning Super Bowl titleholder, there are many reasons why the Kansas City Chiefs are built to win the 2024 Super Bowl. The team has the potential to win the big game back to back since 2015. They have their trump card, Patrick Maholmes, which pretty much guarantees the team will win the 2024 campaign for the Super Bowl. For the record, Maholmes has two Super Bowl MVPs and NFL MVPs, making him a real-deal asset for the team’s rally in the big game.
What’s more, the majority of the Chiefs’ winning roster last season will return in the 2024 season. They have wide receiver Juju Smith-Schuster and Pro Bowl lineman Orlando Brown. Of course, there’s a lot to expect from the rookies in Chiefs. L’Jarius Sneed, Trent McDuffie, Isaiah Pacheco, and George Karlaftis are the most promising ones to look out for.
3. Miami Dolphins
The Dolphins saw a giant leap in the leaderboard recently, and the team is expected to linger in the top 5 unless they suffer from their second loss after suffering defeat against the Bills last October 1. Nonetheless, the Dolphins got back on track after winning the match against the Giants last October 8.
The Dolphins are now ahead of the Eagles in the top 3. With Tyreek Hill and Tua’s dynamic offense, the team has a high chance of making it to the Super Bowl.
4. Philadelphia Eagles
The Philadelphia Eagles are another strong contender in the Super Bowl 2024. They are among the popular picks of bettors to win in the big game. Obviously, Jalen Hurts is a real deal for the Philadelphia Eagles. Many fans are saying that only if he had not seen a fumble returned for a touchdown, he could have been the Super Bowl MVP last season. Regardless of that misfortune in the field, Hurts achieved multiple single-game Super Bowl records last season, making him one of the players to look out for in the coming big game.
Moreover, the National Football Conference – East Division will be an easy campaign for the Eagles. This is because New York Giants’ Daquon Barkley and Daniel Jones hit free agency last March. Additionally, the Dallas Cowboys have showcased inconsistent play in the field, possibly allowing the Eagles to claim the NFC East title effortlessly.
5. Buffalo Bills
With elite players like Josh Allen, Von Miller, Stefon Diggs, and Matt Milano, the Buffalo Bills are seen to survive as Super Bowl contenders this season. With such a powerhouse of skilled players, they will likely secure a spot in the playoffs if they can’t win the big game.
Last year, the Bills went through many emotional and physical struggles but still managed to win the third straight AFC East title. Micah Hyde and Miller suffered significant injuries, and Damar Hamlin had a cardiac arrest during the canceled Week 17 game last year. These challenges may have caught up with the Bills last season, but the team believes the Super Bowl opportunity is still there for them.
6. Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys remain one of the favorites in the NFC this season. Though they can’t match the San Francisco 49ers and Philadelphia Eagles, the team is definitely a real deal in the competition. The Cowboys have parted ways with Kellen Moore and assigned Mike McCarty as the offensive architect. However, fans are optimistic about the Cowboys’ success in their 2024 campaign.
The Cowboys are “America’s Team,” so they are pressured to ace every season of the NFL. However, they have been failing in their quest during the last decade. We can never tell. It could be that this year will be the big break the team has been waiting for.
7. Detroit Lions
The Lions opened as the favorite to win the NFC North. While winning the division title feels nice, the team is aiming for something greater – the Super Bowl LVIII. Well, there are many reasons why the team could ace this season. One is the return of offensive coordinator Ben Johnson. Plus, the team has the best offensive lines in the NFL today. Lastly, they can bank on Jahmyr Gibbs’ flashed dual-threat ability.
Less than four months are left, and we are so close to acknowledging the Super Bowl LVIII champion. The winner could be among the teams we have mentioned in this post. If you are a serious bettor looking forward to winning a hefty amount during the big game, start looking into these teams now and come up with an informed decision.
