Kansas City Chiefs installed as favorites to win Super Bowl 58

The Kansas City Chiefs are favorites to win Super Bowl 58, looking at +550 odds to become a repeat champion.

You may have heard this over the last 20 years, but no NFL team has repeated as champion since the 2003-04 New England Patriots.

Next up to take on the challenge? The Kansas City Chiefs, who dispatched the Philadelphia Eagles with a 38-35 victory on Sunday night in Glendale, earning their second Lombardi Trophy in four years.

For Kansas City, the idea of repeating isn’t foreign or outlandish. After all, this is the team which has won seven straight AFC West titles and hosted an incomprehensible five straight conference title games. In 2020, trying to win back-to-back Super Bowls, Kansas City got to Super Sunday, only to be rudely rebuffed in a 31-9 landslide by Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Entering the 2023 offseason, the Chiefs have ample reason to believe they can end the league’s longest drought without a repeat champ. They have most of their key players under contract, and quarterback Patrick Mahomes is 27 years old. They also have head coach Andy Reid, arguably a top-five coach in NFL history at the controls and defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, who now has three Super Bowl rings.

And when you glance at the Vegas books, the Chiefs are already installed as Super Bowl LVIII favorites. At Caesar’s Sportsbook, Kansas City leads the way at +550. Here’s the rest of the top 10, per ESPN:

San Francisco 49ers +600
Buffalo Bills +650
Philadelphia Eagles +800
Cincinnati Bengals +900
Dallas Cowboys +1600
Los Angeles Chargers +2200
Jacksonville Jaguars +2800
Detroit Lions +3000
Miami Dolphins/Green Bay Packers/New York Jets +3500

Of all those teams, none are more equipped to make a run at the title. San Francisco has questions at quarterback. The Bills are facing a cap crunch for the first time of the Josh Allen era. The Eagles have a litany of older players facing decisions along with key free agents. The Bengals and Chargers are trying to pay their quarterbacks without losing core pieces. So on, so forth.

Of course, nothing about winning one Super Bowl is easy, let alone two. In both of Kansas City’s triumphs, they needed double-digit comebacks. Those are typically rare, although with Mahomes, they feel more inevitable than anything else.

Going forward, the Chiefs have as good a shot as any team in recent memory to win it again.
