Although Super Bowl 55 is not scheduled to take place until February 7 in Tampa, Florida, making a prediction as to who could win the whole competition this early could still prove to make sense and potentially even more lucrative for those that like to place bets on the National Football League (NFL).

Of course, odds for football competitions prior to a tournament such as the Super Bowl are always going to be rather generous, with almost anything possible when the 32 organisations take to the field and things could be extremely different to the norm this time around with restrictions likely to be in place because of the current global pandemic.

However, this also means there is some real value to some of the offerings that have been made. There have been occasions, admittedly rare, that have provided some real shocks in the past, with the New York Giants having upset the odds at times, whilst franchises like the Tennessee Titans have also been in contention when perhaps they should not have been.


Kansas City Chiefs

With Super Bowl 54 still fresh in the minds, though, it would be rather difficult to bet against the Kansas City Chiefs and it seems bookmakers are unwilling to go up against them either in the early stages of betting.

The Chiefs, who are led by the dynamic duo of Hawaii shirt-wearing Head Coach Andy Reid and Patrick Mahomes, will be feeling confident that they can go on and retain the Vince Lombardi trophy in 2021. They have rewarded their MVP quarterback with a new lucrative 10-year deal worth an estimated record $450m (£335.6m), therefore showing they have the complete trust and faith in their franchise leader to lead them to the title again.

With weapons such as Tyreek Hill and Sammy Watkins available at wide receiver, running back Damien Williams and tight end Travis Kelce all available, as well as defensive stars Frank Clark, Tyrann Mathieu and Daniel Sorensen, it is no surprise the Arrowhead organisation are as favoured as they are.


Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens are considered the secondary favourites, with Lamar Jackson expected to go from strength to strength and continue to dominate opposition defences with his incredibly unique style of play. Having had a breakthrough year for the Ravens, the quarterback will be one to watch for years to come.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers and San Francisco 49ers are considered to also be in the hunt, perhaps with former stars from the New England Patriots leading the way for their respective franchises.

The Florida-based organisation, which coincidentally also have the added incentive of being able to compete for the Super Bowl in their hometown, have legendary Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski lining up in their colours for the first time this season, whilst Jimmy Garoppolo has proven to be a hit at the quarterback position for the red Californian franchise.


Others in the running but Chiefs favourites

Indeed, New Orlean Saints, New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks all remain within respectable odds of being able to lift the Vince Lombardi trophy as well, although it would be considered a real risk to venture too far away from the Kansas City Chiefs at this moment in time; especially with the weapons Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid have available.​
