Super Bowl LVI (56 for the non-Romans) at Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium is in the books with the Los Angeles Rams victorious 23-20 over the Cincinnati Bengals, but it’s never too early to look at the early favorites for Super Bowl LVII on Sunday, Feb. 12, 2013, at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz.

In fact, several books in Nevada and states across the country have had their future books up for a couple of weeks.

On this Super Bowl Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills are the consensus 7-1 co-favorites at most books. DraftKings and William Hill, which are both in several states, both have the two teams at 7-1. Circa Sports in Las Vegas has the Bills and Chiefs both at + 750 (odds of 7.5-1), the same as it has the Chiefs, while the Westgate SuperBook has the Bills as the 7-1 outright chalk with the Chiefs offered at 8-1.

The South Point in Las Vegas actually has the Bills, Chiefs and Rams as co-favorites at 8-1 for value shoppers on the Bills and Chiefs.

The Rams, who played the Chiefs on Sunday, are the clear No. 3 choice at most other books as they’re 8-1 at Westgate and William Hill but 10-1 at DraftKings and Circa. They’re followed on most lists by the 49ers, Cowboys and Packers. The best prices for each of those teams is the 49ers at 12-1 at DraftKings (14-1 is best price in Vegas at Circa), Cowboys 15-1 at William Hill and the Packers at 16-1 at Westgate.

The Bengals are in a group of five teams at 20-1 at Westgate, but they’re the co-fifth choice at 14-1 at William Hill ahead of the Cowboys.

The teams at the bottom of the future book boards are who you would expect to be there. DraftKings has the Lions, Jets and Texans at 150-1. Circa has the Texans at 250-1, while Westgate has them at 500-1.

But you might not want to automatically dismiss the longest shots on the board. The Rams were 200-1 before the 1999-2000 season before Kurt “American Underdog” Warner famously led the Rams to the Super Bowl victory. The Falcons were 100-1 before the 2016-17 season and nearly beat the Patriots (famously blowing a 28-3 lead). And, in fact, the Bengals were available from 100-1 to 125-1 this season.
