The 2021 NFL preseason schedule is in full swing and the march towards Super Bowl LVI on February 13, 2022 at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles is officially on. At this point in time very little has happened since NFL training camps opened to drastically alter the Vegas Super Bowl 56 odds.
The Packers' Super Bowl 2021 odds had been on and off the board for most of the offseason while the Aaron Rodgers saga played out. Now that the Vegas oddsmakers know he'll be back with Green Bay for another season, the Packers odds to win Super Bowl LVI have been set at +1400, making them one of the top Super Bowl contenders in the league. Meanwhile, the Denver Broncos, reportedly Rodgers' preferred trade destination, saw their Super Bowl 56 odds plummet to +4000 with the news. Likewise, the Indianapolis Colts saw their Vegas Super Bowl odds plummet when Carson Wentz went down with a foot injury.
The oddsmakers at William Hill Sportsbook list the Kansas City Chiefs at +500 (risk $100 to win $500) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +650 as the top Super Bowl 56 contenders. Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes should benefit from playing behind a rebuilt offensive line, which was an a glaring issue in their embarrassing Super Bowl LV loss to Tampa Bay. Meanwhile, the Tom Brady-led Buccaneers were able to bring back all of the key pieces from their 2021 Super Bowl LV run, while also adding depth to their roster during free agency and the NFL Draft.
Other teams that have generated some Super Bowl 56 buzz as of late are the Buffalo Bills, who are looking to build off a trip to the AFC Championship last year, the Dallas Cowboys, who are primed for a "very, very special" season according to quarterback Dak Prescott, and the Los Angeles Rams, whose new quarterback (Matthew Stafford) has head coach Sean McVay more optimistic than ever.
