Best Super Bowl Bets
Buffalo Bills To Win 2022 Super Bowl (+800) at Caesars
Since a Week 1 slip-up against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Buffalo Bills have dominated their past three games. Their offense is averaging over 33 points per game and their defense has already posted two shutouts. Buffalo has one of the most complete rosters in the NFL.
Even more impressively, the Bills have continued to flourish despite Josh Allen‘s performance falling short of last year’s level. They have a +90 point differential through four games and their franchise quarterback isn’t even playing great yet. That is a bad sign for the rest of the AFC.
Buffalo will be tested on the road in Week 5 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football. The Bills might be the best team in the AFC, but a win against the favored Chiefs (per our NFL gameday odds) would really solidify them as serious Super Bowl contenders.

Green Bay Packers To Win 2022 Super Bowl (+1200) at Caesars
It appears that this is truly the “Last Dance" for Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, but so far, so good. Like the Bills, they’ve bounced back from an ugly Week 1 loss against the New Orleans Saints and Rodgers has been nearly flawless since.
In Rodgers’ last three starts, he’s scored nine touchdowns without throwing an interception. The offense is firing on all cylinders and the return of Randall Cobb is already paying dividends.
The defense is the biggest question mark for Green Bay, as the statuses of Pro Bowlers Jaire Alexander and Za’Darius Smith are a big concern. Both players are dealing with serious injuries that may prevent them from returning this year.
However, Rodgers is playing so well that it might not matter. Betting on No. 12 at 12:1 feels right.
Los Angeles Chargers To Win 2022 Super Bowl (+2000) at Caesars
The Chargers have an absolute superstar in Justin Herbert and he instantly makes them a legit Super Bowl contender. Herbert and the Chargers have already knocked off the Chiefs in Kansas City and just obliterated the Raiders in primetime.
It also doesn’t hurt that Los Angeles has allowed the seventh-fewest points this year despite playing the Chiefs, Raiders, and Dallas Cowboys. First-year head coach Brandon Staley has his defense playing fast and they are only getting better each week.
Herbert and the Chargers might still be a year away, but they currently sit atop the AFC West and there might not be a quarterback playing better in the AFC right now. Accordingly, they are a huge value at +2000.
Super Bowl Predictions 2022
Los Angeles Rams To Win 2022 Super Bowl (+1000) at Caesars
When everything is clicking, there isn’t a better team in the NFL than the Los Angeles Rams. The offense under Matthew Stafford is too good and the defense has too many playmakers to be stopped. Week 4 loss to the Cardinals aside, this team has the right formula to win the Super Bowl this year.
A matchup between the Rams and Bills feels inevitable given their incredible ceilings. Their explosive offenses combined with their incredible speed on defense make them the favorites to meet in the Super Bowl.
This game comes down to which offense you trust more in a big game, and for us, it’s the Rams. Sean McVay has been to a Super Bowl before and this will be the year he finally takes the Lombardi Trophy home, making this our NFL bet of the day.
