Best Bets for Super Bowl LIX

After the Kansas City Chiefs’ overtime success against the San Francisco 49ers at Super Bowl LVIII, the countdown is now on to the 2024/25 NFL season. All the roads now lead to Super Bowl LIX in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Here is an early look at the best bets for Super Bowl LIX based on the outright market for the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

San Francisco 49ers (5/1)

For the second time in five years, the San Francisco 49ers were the losing side at the Super Bowl. This latest defeat will hurt the most. Not only were they leading at halftime, but they scored first in overtime, and they were one stop away from winning the game.

Eventually, the pain will wear away for Kyle Shanahan and his backroom team, and when it does, they will start planning for next season. Their roster is built to get back to the Super Bowl and with some luck on their side next time, they can be on the winning team.

The NFC Championship winners went 12-5 in the regular season in 2023. They then showed their class to beat the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions in the play-offs to reach the Super Bowl. 

It is predicted that there will be five rookie QBs drafted in the NFL Draft in 2024. The 49ers don’t need to worry about adding to their position. They are a team that hurt their opposition in the air and on the ground. 

Thanks to Christian McCaffrey, the 49ers also had a lot of success with their run game in 2023. Their star RB led the league in rushing yards, accumulating 1,459 yards. He recorded 14 touchdowns in what was another excellent campaign for the NFL Offensive Player of the Year.

Along with a strong offense, San Francisco have one of the fiercest defences in the NFL. If they keep hold of their star players on that side of the ball, they can dominate teams once again next season. It would be no surprise to see them add depth to some positions during the 2024 NFL Draft in Detroit.

As of the 14th of February, the 49ers are 5/1 in the NFL odds to win Super Bowl LIX. They look the most likely to be crowned the champions in New Orleans’ impressive Superdome. 

Dallas Cowboys (16/1)

No team finished the regular season with a better record than the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC. They won 12 games to land the NFC East title, finishing ahead of their rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Cowboys were the only team to go through the 2023/24 campaign unbeaten at home. Unfortunately, they then lost to the Green Bay Packers at the AT&T Stadium in the Wildcard Round of the playoffs.

Dallas have already made changes to their coaching team following their surprise defeat to the Packers. Former Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer has been hired as their new defensive coordinator. He was with the Cowboys as an assistant when they won Super Bowl XXX.

As of the 14th of February, Dallas are 16/1 in the Super Bowl betting. They are a much better team than those odds suggest. Their play-off record has let them down in recent years, but this may be the season they finally get it right in the post-season.

New York Jets (28/1)

In what was a cruel blow to a franchise that has often had a lot of bad luck, the New York Jets’ season effectively ended in week one last season when Aaron Rodgers picked up a serious knee injury.

The signing of Rodgers was meant to be the last piece in the jigsaw for the Jets to push for a Super Bowl place last season. Unfortunately, they struggled at the quarterback position following the loss of their future Hall of Fame QB.

Rodgers is set to return to the Jets team in 2024 and he will be keen to make up for lost time. He is motivated to win a second Super Bowl title and he can make the most out of the receivers available to him in New York.

The Jets have a top-10 defence that can help get Rodgers back on the field next season. As of the 14th of February, they are 28/1 underdogs in the outright betting. They can fare much better than those odds suggest.

Super Bowl LIX takes place on the 9th of February, 2025 and all three of the above teams will be hoping to secure their ticket for the game in the playoffs in January.
