Fourteen teams qualified for the postseason this year, but it’s the defending Super Boal champions who are the team to beat. The Kansas City Chiefs were one of the co-favorites to win Super Bowl 55 since before the start of the preseason and now that the regular season is complete, the Chiefs are 7/4 odds to secure another championship, according to a recent update by the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas.
The Kansas City Chiefs (14-2) are seeking the first back-to-back titles since 2004 during the early days of the Tom Brady and Bill Belichick era with the New England Patriots.
The Buffalo Bills (13-3) pose the biggest challenge to Kansas City in the AFC. The Chiefs locked up the #1 AFC seed and the only bye. The Bills secured the #2 seed in the AFC and find themselves at 7/1 odds to win their first-ever Super Bowl after four consecutive runner-up finishes in the 1990s.

The Cleveland Browns (11-5) secured a postseason berth for the first time in 18 years to end the NFL’s longest playoff drought. Baker Mayfield and the Browns defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 17 to lock up a Wild-Card berth in the AFC. The Browns are 30/1 odds to win the Super Bowl, but face the Steelers in the Wild-Card round this weekend.
Brees, Rodgers, or Brady?
Aaron Rodgers has the inside track to a third MVP after leading the Green Bay Packers (13-3) to the #1 seed in the NFC. The Packers were awarded the only bye on the NFC side of the NFL postseason bracket. The Packers are the second-favorite on the board at 5/1 odds.
The latest rumor to come out of the Big Easy is that Drew Brees will retire at the end of this season. If the rumor is true, this will be the last chance for Brees to win another Super Bowl with the New Orleans Saints (12-4). The Saints are 10/1 odds to secure a second title for Who Dat Nation.
Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs (11-1) secured the #5 seed in the NFC. They will face the Washington Football Team in the Wild-Card round this coming weekend. Brady and the Bucs are 12/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. After Brady departed from New England, the Patriots saw their string of playoff appearances snapped after a lackluster 7-9 season.
Rare Back-to-Back Champs
The New England Patriots were the last team to secure back-to-back victories in the Super Bowl after running the table in the 2003 and 2004 seasons.
It’s become increasingly difficult to win multiple championships in a row in the era of free agency and big spending.
In the first 10 seasons that the Super Bowl was held, three teams won consecutive titles. Vince Lombardi guided the Green Bay Packers to victories in the first two Super Bowls. The Miami Dolphins were Super Bowl champions with victories in Super Bowls VII and VIII. The Pittsburgh Steelers and the infamous “Steel Curtain defense” secured back-to-back championships with wins in Super Bowl IX and X.
|BACK-TO-BACK SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS
- Green Bay Packers
- Miami Dolphins
- Pittsburgh Steelers (2)
- San Francisco 49ers
- Dallas Cowboys
- New England Patriots
The Steelers are the only team in NFL history to win back-to-back Super Bowl titles on two different occasions. Pittsburgh secured four titles during a dominant six-year span.
Since 1976, teams won the Super Bowl in consecutive years five times, including the Pittsburgh Steelers (Super Bowl XIII and XIV), San Francisco 49ers (Super Bowl XXIII and XXIV), Dallas Cowboys (Super Bowl XXVII and XXVIII), Denver Broncos (Super Bowl XXXII and XXXIII), and New England Patriots (Super Bowl XXXVIII and XXXIX).
