LA Rams Favourites to win Super Bowl
The Los Angeles Rams have been known by a few names in the past depending on where the franchise is located. Their last win was at Super Bowl XXXIV when known as the St Louis Rams. They haven’t reached a Super Bowl since then but reached the play-offs last year for the first time since 2004. Their improvement continues and this season they have made a great start to their season and are top of the NFC West and look certain to make the play-offs for the second year in a row. Quarterback Jared Goff has been in top form scoring several touchdowns this season as has Running Back Todd Gurley. There are odds of 9/2 at William Hill on them winning the Super Bowl.
Patriots Again in Contention
The last four years have seen the New England Patriots win the Super Bowl twice and they were runners-up this year but unexpectedly lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. They haven’t made a good start to the season in the AFC East division, but Quarterback Tom Brady continues to be a threat and they remain a major threat as they bid to become only the third team to reach three consecutive Super Bowls. You can get odds of 8/1 at Bet365 on them winning the Super Bowl this season.
Kansas on the March
You have to go back to 1970 for the only Super Bowl triumph by the Kansas City Chiefs but they have been regularly making it into the play-offs in recent seasons. At the time of writing (September 25) they are top of the AFC West with a 100% record. They have a strong offense and Quarterback Patrick Mahomes is on fire this season with one touchdown after another. They are good value at 10/1 with William Hill to win the Super Bowl.
Philadelphia Eagles were the surprise winners of this year’s Super Bowl and are 11/1 at Bet365 to win again next February. They are again doing well in NFC East and their chances of a repeat win have been improved by the return from an ACL injury of Quarterback Carson Wentz. Miami Dolphins are 50/1 at William Hill and have made a solid start to their season topping AFC East. Ryan Tannehill is back as Quarterback for the first time since the 2016 season and has scored seven touchdowns in the first three games of the season.
