Super Bowl LIV Winner: Top 10 - Odds and Predictions

Of course, nobody knows for certain which two NFL franchises will endure the 2019 regular and postseasons with enough victories to play in Super Bowl LIV, but after almost half a season of football the oddsmakers sure have a much better idea of who THEY think those two teams will be, so we take a look at their top-10 favorites.

We did this once before the season had even started (see link below), and it’s interesting to see which teams are still on the list, which ones slipped off and which one team is still in the exact same spot it was four months ago (hint: they employ a GOAT).

So here we take an updated look at the predictions and odds of the top-10 NFL teams that have the best chance to win Super Bowl LIV next February, as well as briefly analyze each franchise’s chances of succeeding.

How to Watch: Super Bowl LIV

What: Super Bowl LIV (or fifty-four), meaning it is the fifty-fourth one that has been played.

When: February 2, 2020 – since the turn of the century, the Super Bowl typically happens during the first week of February, although before the year 2000 it would happen during the last week of January.

Where:  The Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, home of the Miami Dolphins during the regular season.

Cost of Super Bowl LIV Advertisements

Cost for 30 seconds of commercial time: Base price is between $5.5 and $5.6 million.

# of Commercial breaks during Super Bowl broadcast: There will be four commercial breaks during each quarter of the football game.

In the past, five of these breaks took place each quarter, but each break was 30 seconds shorter than they will be during Super Bowl LIV.

Why the change? The shift from five to four longer commercial breaks per quarter was the result of the NFL’s attempt to “optimize commercial load,” meaning fans complained there were too many ads interrupting their games and the league listened and adjusted.

Guess we’ll see if having longer ad breaks less often solves that problem, but at least the NFL is making an effort to answer their fans.

Which NFL Team Will Win Super Bowl LIV? Updated Top 10 Odds & Predictions

Here are the most current odds available) of the top 10 most likely NFL Super Bowl Favorites for 2020 (as it stands right now) with a quick analysis for each.

We’ll do another one of these lists as the season progresses, and chances are nine out of ten of these teams will either be at a different spot or off the list completely with some others joining the party late, and that’s the beauty of professional football and why it’s one of the most popular (and profitable) sports in the world.

  • Road: 2-3-0
  • Divisional: 1-1-0
  • Conference: 2-4-0

2019-20 Schedule: 26th toughest

Analysis

Slipping five spots in this top ten list is a sign that the oddsmakers are losing faith in the Philadelphia Eagles, their struggles odd given that a) Carson Wentz is still healthy and in the lineup, and b) they are facing the 26th toughest (or 7th easiest) schedule in the league.

At this point in the season, it’s confusing as to why the Eagles are under .500 and Wentz’s offense is ranked in the bottom third of the league (23rd) despite having three of the league’s top receivers (Alshon Jeffery, DeSean Jackson and Nelson Agholor), one of the best tight ends in the game (Zach Ertz) and a hard-hitting running back (Jordan Howard) who is averaging 4.5 yards per carry.

That’s on offensive coordinator Mike Groh, just like the fact that Philadelphia’s defense is allowing opponents to put up an average of 26.6 points per game is on defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, and if this team expects to get back into the NFC race (they’re currently nipping at the tails of the Dallas Cowboys) adjustments better get made in the second half of the season.

9) Los Angeles Rams

  • Conference: 3-3-0

2019-20 Schedule: T-27th toughest

Analysis

Talk about a fall from grace, the Los Angeles Rams went from being in the top three of this potential Super Bowl Champion list to barely staying on it, slipping six spots to number nine based, perhaps, on a lack of dominance so far this season, which probably isn’t fair given Sean McVay’s team is still very much in the race for the NFC West.

Right now the Rams have a top-ten defense (9th) and Aaron Donald is having a decent season, with 4.0 sacks, 8 quarterback hits and 8 tackles for a loss, the man is delivering, yet against the sixth easiest schedule in the league his squad is allowing opponents to score almost 24 points per game (23.4).

Jared Goff and his 7th ranked passing attack gang are doing just fine so far, but Todd Gurley out of the backfield isn’t quite as impressive as he used to be, averaging 4.0 yards per touch (compared with 5.8 last season), so for the Rams to slide back into contention here it’s time to start using him more, Gurley only averaging 13.7 attempts per game right now (compared with 18.3 last season).

  • Home: 3-1-0
  • Road: 1-2-0
  • Divisional: 3-0-0
  • Conference: 3-2-0

2019-20 Schedule: T-14th toughest

Analysis

Sliding into this top-10 list for the first time this season are the 4-3 Dallas Cowboys, currently, in charge of the NFC East with playmakers, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott both ranked in the top-5 at their position.

In all three of the Cowboys losses the games were close, but the one that got away was the loss to the straining New York Jets 22-24 capping off a three-loss run that kinda took the wind out of the sails (for a moment) of Dallas players and fans alike.

A glimpse at the remaining difficult parts of the Cowboys’ 2019 schedule causes shudders (they’ve still got the Vikings, Patriots, Bills, Eagles, and Rams to contend with) so for them to maintain a steady hold on their division they have to look more like they did against the Eagles in Week 7 (a 37-10 home win) than how they did in that sad Week 6 loss to the Jets.

  • Road: 3-1-0
  • Divisional: 2-1-0
  • Conference: 3-2-0

2019-20 Schedule: T-19th toughest

Analysis

Another team from out of ‘nowhere’ snagging a spot on this list is the surprisingly good Baltimore Ravens, whose second-year quarterback Lamar Jackson has made good on his promise to be both a running and passing quarterback, his high-scoring offense ranked second in the league right now.

It should be noted that the AFC North team that got way more preseason hype, the Cleveland Browns led by outspoken quarterback Baker Mayfield, are no longer on this list due to, ahem, major difficulties, while Jackson has quietly reinvented the game of football in Baltimore using an RPO style of attack that’s been leaving defenses befuddled.

The odd part of Jim Harbaugh’s 2019 Ravens is that their normally dominant defense is only ranked 13th in the league right now (due to injuries and roster changes) so if defensive coordinator Don Martindale’s side of the ball can catch up to their offense, Baltimore could not only own the AFC North, they could own the postseason, as well.

  • Conference: 5-2-0

2019-20 Schedule: 10th toughest

Analysis

If you want a taste of what hard-hitting professional football is all about, watch the teams from the black and blue NFC North division battle it out, with the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers currently at the top, the Vikings looking scary with the brilliant play of Kirk Cousins lately.

Cousins was the missing link for this Vikings team – how he plays dictates their success, it seems – and from the looks of his numbers (he’s got 10 touchdowns to 3 interceptions, completing 72 percent of his throws and is leading the league in yards gained per attempt with 9.3) he is the real deal. Again.

The big news this season for Minnesota’s offense has been Dalvin Cook, right now leading the league in running back production (156 carries for 823 yards and 9 touchdowns, averaging an impressive 5.3 yards per carry), numbers that will come in handy in the postseason, which seems to be in the future for these 2019 Vikes.

  • Home: 4-1-0
  • Road: 3-0-0
  • Divisional: 3-0-0
  • Conference: 4-1-0

2019-20 Schedule: T-14th toughest

Analysis

The Green Bay Packers have cracked the top-5 of this list, moving up five spots on the brilliant and productive play of quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who seems hellbent on not only getting back to the Super Bowl but also into the Hall of Fame, and his numbers back that up.

With 13 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions with a completion percentage (64.8) that matches his career average, the 35-year-old Rodgers seems to be playing with new life these days, possibly the result of the franchise going with a new (and younger) head coach in Matt LaFleur.

The other big news in Green Bay is defensive coordinator Mike Pettine’s squad, let by the Smiths (linebackers Preston and La’Darius) who were acquired this offseason and could be the key to a defense that looks postseason worthy.

4) San Francisco 49ers

  • Defensive Coordinator: Robert Saleh (Hired February 2017)
  • Quarterback: Jimmy Garoppolo (6th NFL season, third with the 49ers)
  • Offensive Stars: Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin and tight end George Kittle
  • Defensive Stars: Defensive ends Dee Ford and rookie Nick Bosa

49ers – 2019 Franchise Records

  • Overall 7-0-0
  • Home: 3-0-0
  • Road: 4-0-0
  • Divisional: 1-0-0
  • Conference: 4-0-0

2019-20 Schedule: 11th toughest

Analysis

The San Francisco 49ers didn’t even make the first version of this list in the offseason, I guess because oddsmakers were unsure if a) unproven quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was the real deal, b) if the 49ers defense was going to play well and c) how the team would do against the 11th toughest schedule in the league.

So far, San Francisco’s defense, led by ends Dee Ford, Arik Armstead, and rookie Nick Bosa, is the second-best in the league (next to the Patriots) and they have been the key to all of the 49ers wins this season, much of the credit going to coordinator Robert Saleh.

As for Garoppolo, he isn’t exactly putting up impressive numbers – after seven weeks of football, he had almost as many interceptions (6) as he did touchdowns (7) – but he’s proving to be a good field general, distributing the ball proficiently between his passing targets (68.3 completion rate) and the 49ers’ two-headed running attack, a necessary balance given they face the roughest part of their schedule now.

3) Kansas City Chiefs

  • Offensive Coordinator: Eric Bieniemy (Promoted January 2018)
  • Defensive Coordinator: Steve Spagnuolo (Hired January 2019)
  • Quarterback: Patrick Mahomes (2nd year)
  • Offensive Stars: Receiver Tyreek Hill, Tight End Travis Kelce
  • Defensive Star: Defensive Tackle Chris Jones and safety Tyrann Mathieu

Chiefs – 2019 Franchise Records

  • Overall 5-3-0
  • Home: 1-3-0
  • Road: 4-0-0
  • Divisional: 2-0-0
  • Conference: 4-2-0

2019-20 Schedule: T-5th toughest

Analysis

The big mystery in Kansas City is how the Chiefs will do without their biggest playmaker, quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who went down with a dislocated kneecap in Week 7 and will be out for at least the next couple of games.

Head coach Andy Reid is convinced the next man up (Matt Moore) can get the job done in the meantime, and it sure doesn’t hurt to have Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins and tight end Travis Kelce on the other end of Moore’s passes.

As always, the big challenge for the Chiefs is their defense, currently ranked 24th in the league, so they’ll have to step up during Mahomes’ absence because the normal Kansas City strategy of simply outscoring the enemy might not work without him working miracles from under center.

2) New Orleans Saints

  • Home: 4-0-0
  • Road: 3-1-0
  • Divisional: 1-0-0
  • Conference: 5-1-0

2019-20 Schedule: 22nd toughest

Analysis

The big news in New Orleans these days is the return of Drew Brees, who was forced to sit out for the last five games due to a dislocated thumb he suffered against the Los Angeles Rams in Week 2 (the Saints’ only loss this season).

Teddy Bridgewater has proven to be an effective backup (going 5-0 in the games he started) and that has a lot to do with the tools at his disposal, receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn and dual-threat running back Alvin Kamara, but Brees is the future Hall-of-Famer that can get the job done in the postseason, where this talented team seems to be heading.

The biggest improvement award goes to the Saints’ defense, ranked 14th last season and 7th after seven weeks this year, the credit going to coordinator Dennis Allen, who has game-planned well around stars Cam Jordan, Sheldon Rankins, and Marcus Williams, and that upgrade will be the key to getting New Orleans past the first couple of playoff rounds and beyond in January.

2019-20 Schedule: T-27th toughest

Analysis

The only team that maintained its position on this list from preseason to Week 8 is the New England Patriots, surprising nobody by their dominance, except the haters, who were certain (once again) that this season would prove to be too much for ‘old man’ Brady under center.

Actually, the opposite has proven to be true, and 42-year-old GOAT quarterback Tom Brady’s football IQ and ability to assess defensive lineups aligned with head coach Bill Belichick’s incredible ability to neutralize opponents’ biggest strengths with his game planning have proven to be too tough to beat (so far) in 2019.

It would surprise nobody if this Patriots team and their number one overall defense and 10th ranked offense went undefeated on their way to another Super Bowl appearance, and true football fans have to just take their hats off and salute a team that’s proving to be one of the greatest (if not THE best) to ever play in the NFL.

Super Bowl LIV Winner, Top 10 Predictions – Wrap-Up

So there it is, your updated list of the most likely candidates to play in Super Bowl LIV.

Interesting that only three of the ten teams are from the AFC, including two of the top five picks.

The rest are NFC teams who are basically competing for their chance to take on the New England Patriots for the Lombardi Trophy, but taking down Brady and Belichick at that level could prove (once again) to be too tough a task to accomplish.

Good luck with whichever team you bet on – don’t count any of them out until the GOAT’s actually wearing his seventh Super Bowl ring.
