As the conclusion of Super Bowl 57 brings the 2022 NFL season to a close, it’s time for fans and bettors to look forward to the next one. The nation’s top online sportsbooks have already posted Super Bowl 58 odds with the usual suspects populating the top of odds boards. However, several teams could become Super Bowl 2024 contenders with the right off-season moves.
The Kansas City Chiefs defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 38-35 to win Super Bowl 57 on Sunday, Feb. 12. Super Bowl 58 will be played on Feb. 11, 2024, in Las Vegas, Nev. Let’s take a look at the opening odds for Super Bowl 58.
Super Bowl 58 Odds
The following table contains the early Super Bowl 58 odds.
Kansas City had opened as the betting favorite at several sportsbooks prior to winning Super Bowl 57. But with how close the Bengals played the Chiefs in the postseason, it is not surprising that their Super Bowl 58 odds are not far behind those of the Chiefs. Philadelphia has longer odds than the team they beat in the NFC Championship game.
But it is fair to wonder how that game would have gone if the 49ers had a healthy quarterback.
Had the Dallas Cowboys lost defensive coordinator Dan Quinn, their odds would have probably opened somewhat longer. It’s a little surprising losing offensive coordinator Kellen Moore didn’t improve their odds. But the Cowboys will still need to make several improvements to the roster to have a legitimate chance to win Super Bowl 58. That, and QB Dak Prescott needs to quit throwing interceptions.
The odds for several teams could change during the offseason if their front offices make the right moves. However, coaching changes and rumors have already impacted the odds of several teams. With the right roster additions, others could go from being on the outside of the Super Bowl 58 conversation to the forefront.

Super Bowl 58 Odds: Betting Analysis
No one would blame you for betting on the Chiefs or one of the other teams at the top of Super Bowl 58 oddsboards. As for some of the other top teams, it is not hard to justify putting money on them, either. After all, Philadelphia was a play or two away from winning Super Bowl 57. Had the 49ers not lost three quarterbacks to injury, they may have been in the Super Bowl instead of the Eagles.
The Bengals gave the Chiefs a solid run for their money, and the Bills did win their regular season game against Kansas City. However, there are several options with value worth considering before the offseason gets underway:
- Jets: All the talk has focused on the team acquiring a veteran quarterback. But if the Jets do not improve their offensive line, it may not matter who they get to take over for Zach Wilson.
- Saints: The defense is solid, and the pieces of a good offense are in place. However, the Saints need a better quarterback than Andy Dalton.
- Jaguars: It seems strange to talk about the Jags as a possible Super Bowl contender. But with the continued maturation of Trevor Lawrence and the addition of a wide receiver or two via free agency, trade (Deandre Hopkins?), or the draft, the Jags could make that jump next year.
- Vikings: Kirk Cousins and the offense were solid in 2022, but the defense was terrible. However, if Minnesota can overhaul the defensive roster, new defensive coordinator Brian Flores could give them the kind of defense their offense deserved in 2022.
Our Pick: Kansas City Chiefs — If they do not lose anyone significant to free agency, they will be the team to beat next season.
Dark Horses: Jets, Saints, Jaguars
Longshots: Broncos, Buccaneers, Vikings
