2023-2024 NFL Season Recap

The dust hadn’t even settled on Kansas City’s thrilling 25-22 overtime win over San Francisco in Super Bowl LVIII when futures odds for the 2024 season emerged. And just like the previous season when the Chiefs beat Philadelphia in Super Bowl LVII to conclude the 2022 campaign, the Super Bowl combatants were positioned as the betting favorites. A lot can and will happen by the time training camps open and the 2024 NFL season starts in early September, but in a rush to take advantage of the game’s popularity before the NFL goes into hibernation for several months, sportsbooks have outed championship odds for next season.

Odds this early will vary depending on what sportsbook you visit, however the consensus has the Niners and Chiefs at the top of the betting board. That’s kinda how it goes since those two just ran through the playoffs to meet for the NFL championship and both don’t appear to be going anywhere except from their lofty perch as league elite any time soon. After the Chiefs beat the Eagles to close the 2023 season, they were listed immediately after that game as the favorite to repeat. Philadelphia, Buffalo and the Niners were all situated on the top of the odds list.

So it isn’t surprising to see KC and SF sitting at the top of the early Super Bowl odds chart. But there are a few things suggesting neither one of them win Super Bowl LIX, which for the record will be played at the Caesars Superdome in New Orleans on February 9, 2025. First off for the Chiefs is that there’s never been a three-peat Super Bowl champion and only thee clubs in the history of the Big Game have been to as many as three in a row. And Niners’ Kyle Shanahan proved he can’t win the big one dropping to 0-3 in the Super Bowl as a head coach or coordinator.

The Tom Brady-led New England Patriots were the last team to play in three Super Bowls in a row beating Atlanta following the 2016 season when they famously rallied from a 28-3 second half deficit to win in the first-ever overtime game. They followed that with losses to Philadelphia and a win over the Rams. The Miami Dolphins were the first team to appear in three straight Super Bowl games in the early 1970s. A win over Washington in SB VII capped the only perfect season to date in NFL history.

In the early 1990s the Buffalo Bills did something we may never see again. Starting with the conclusion of the 1990 season the Bills made a record four straight Super Bowl appearances losing them all to teams from the NFC East. While the team gets roasted for never winning the big one they should get props for getting there that many times. As it stands after Super Bowl LVIII there are four teams – Cleveland, Detroit, Jacksonville and Houston – that have never reached the NFL Championship game.

The 2024 season could be the time for the Lions to cross themselves off that no-show list. After a strong finish to the 2022 season the Lions went 12-5, won the NFC North and made a run to the NFC Championship where they held a 24-7 lead over the Niners. They have a legit offense and with a little help defensively should be among the clubs to consider. They are jumbled with teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, Miami Dolphins and Cincinnati Bengals in the second tier of favorites.

Opening NFL futures odds are based on what oddsmakers know of teams at the moment and what they could be come September. However, with the NFL draft, free agency and trades all coming up things will change. Heck the odds can and will fluctuate during the season like when the Chiefs saw their futures price grow during a stretch of four losses in six games in the second half of the season.
