Who Will Win The 2019 NFL Super Bowl?

Who Will Win The 2019 NFL Super Bowl?
The NFL might be on the cusp of a new era. After losing Super Bowl LII to the Eagles backup QB, the Patriots appear more vulnerable than ever, despite maintaining status as favorites for Super Bowl 2019. Aaron Rodgers’ record contract ensures he remains a Packers for life, but Green Bay hasn’t surrounded the best quarterback in the NFL with the type of talent that wins championships. Expect new kings to emerge this season.

NFL Futures – Super Bowl LIII

Super Bowl 2019 Favorites

All teams want to win a championship every year, but only a handful have a Super Bowl or bust mentality. The following NFL favorites expect to lift the Lombardi Trophy this season. After a fantastic breakout campaign in 2017, the Los Angeles Rams (+1100) offer the best value among the best teams in the league.

New England Patriots – +500

Rightfully on top of the pigskin heap, the Patriots will likely remain favorites all season, partly because of a relatively weak AFC. Brady won MVP, but the defense took a step back last season, especially when Belichick benched Butler as backup Eagles QB Foles sliced through the secondary. Coach Belichick’s authoritarian personnel style might catch up with the franchise this year.

Philadelphia Eagles – +800

Foles isn’t having a great pre-season, but nobody cares as long as he and the rest of the Eagles keep the home fires burning for star pivot Carson Wentz, who hasn’t fully recovered before week one. Some clubs feature better talent at specific positions, but no team features Philadelphia’s depth when Wentz is healthy.

 

Pittsburgh Steelers – +1000

Now that the hype for the 49ers has subsided somewhat, the Steelers should be considered the most overrated of all contenders. Elite RB Le’Veon Bell lead the NFL in touches, but Pittsburgh refuses to give him Todd Gurley money. The defense faltered after Ryan Shazier’s tragic injury, which could be the biggest concern for the Steelers.

Minnesota Vikings – +1100

Signing Kirk Cousins patched the last big hole in the Vikings lineup. Nothing less than Minnesota’s first Super Bowl ring will be acceptable for the franchise. A fantastic defense will make sure the Vikings stay competitive even when the offense endures a tough outing. RB Dalvin Cook could turn into a top five rusher, if healthy.

Los Angeles Rams – +1100

Assuming Jared Goff doesn’t regress significantly, the Rams might be the most talented team in the NFL with Aaron Donald and Todd Gurley striking fear on both sides of the football. Los Angeles also plays out of a weak NFC West division, reducing the stress of earning a playoff bye. 

Super Bowl LIII Sleepers

This group of contenders don’t have the same depth as the favorites. These Super Bowl sleepers feature an elite offensive or defensive threat, without proven balance across the roster. The Houston Texans (+2200) offer superb value as sleepers because of the extreme upside of Watson and Watt.

Green Bay Packers – +1100

One of the greatest quarterbacks of all time needs to continue carrying the Packers for any shot at a Super Bowl. If Aaron Rodgers gets a bit of help from the defense, Green Bay might legitimately challenge Minnesota for NFC North dominance.

A. Rodgers

New Orleans Saints – +1400

Fighting against the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons reduces the odds of the Saints winning the Super Bowl as much as the specter of an injury to Drew Brees. Similar to the Packers, a little bit of defensive improvement for the Saints will go a long way.

Atlanta Falcons – +2000

Do you believe the Falcons will win the Super Bowl two years after they allowed the greatest championship comeback in history? Atlanta improved their defense, leaping to a top ten position last season. The offense regressed badly, dropping from the best-scoring unit in the NFL to 15th in the league. Tough to stake Atlanta compared to other NFL futures opportunities.

Los Angeles Chargers – +2200

Perhaps the most intriguing sleeper in a sleepy AFC, the Chargers were a bit unlucky to fall out of the post season picture last season. Los Angeles were the third stingiest team in the NFL, but they’ll need a bounceback season from Philip Rivers to generate the offense required to win a championship. The AFC West might be the worst division in the NFL, so the Chargers will have time to build momentum.

Houston Texans – +2200

Is Deshaun Watson capable of MVP quarterback play over an entire season? Will J.J. Watt rebound from a broken leg to land among the league leaders in sacks? If the answer to both questions is “yes”, Houston will dominate the AFC South and morph into a favorite by season’s end.

Super Bowl 2019 Longshots

The Panthers were close to advancing past the divisional round, and the 49ers won five in a row to end the season, but the Jacksonville Jaguars (+2000) should be considered the best longshot to bet on because of their young, aggressive and elite defense.

Jacksonville Jaguars – +2000

Jalen Ramsey sounded off on every quarterback in the NFL, without roasting his own mediocre pivot. The Jaguars defense is amazing, Leonard Fournette’s a beast, but Blake Bortles has been far too inconsistent to place Jacksonville among the top tier.

San Francisco 49ers – +2200

Jimmy “Savior” Garoppolo could lift the 49ers to a solid regular season record, but a Super Bowl run is probably out of the question. Without Jerick McKinnon, the 49ers have less talent than they did at the end of the 2017 campaign.

Carolina Panthers – +2800

Carolina didn’t get any better during the 2018 off season and Cam Newton doesn’t have his MVP swagger any longer. In a weak division the Panthers might thrive, but the Falcons and the Saints will give Carolina a rough run during the regular season. This team may struggle to make the playoffs. If they do, however, Newton’s post season experience will prove dangerous.

Maybe Next Year

Barring a sudden, shocking rise, wagering your roll on these teams winning the Super Bowl will waste your money:
