Hey NFL fans, ready to talk Super Bowl?
The preseason is just getting underway and that means football fever is back.
So why are we already bringing up the Super Bowl?
Well, this time of year remains the best to place some bets on the game.
This is the time to potentially get one over on oddsmakers and take home a nice payday.
So let’s look at a few NFL teams with some surprising odds.
All of our odds are taken from Vegas Insider.

3. Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams added Matthew Stafford at quarterback and are now at +1400 to win the Super Bowl next February.
That has the team tied for the fifth-best odds in the NFL.
Confidence is clearly high with this team and Stafford is seen as the missing piece after Jared Goff got the Rams to the Super Bowl, only for the offense to fall flat a few years ago.
The Rams were in the Divisional Round a season ago and the upgrade at quarterback should only boost the team’s chances given the stacked roster.

However, we don’t know yet for sure if Stafford is indeed an upgrade over Goff.
2. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Pittsburgh Steelers come in much lower than the Rams at +4500 to win it all.
Those are some steep odds for a team that is routinely in the postseason with Ben Roethlisberger under center.
But perhaps this is a sign Vegas has lost all faith in the Steelers.
That is fair, given the fact they have to compete with the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns within their own division.
These odds tie the Steelers with the Denver Broncos and Arizona Cardinals.
While the Cardinals have potential, being tied with the Broncos is not the best sign.
But Steelers fans may see this as an absolute steal of a bet.
Could Roethlisberger ride off into the sunset as a champion?
1. Cleveland Browns
The Cleveland Browns being Super Bowl favorites will always be a story until the franchise finally reaches that mountaintop.
The team comes in with +1600 odds for the eighth spot overall.
It would make sense for a ton of bets to be thrown on the Browns, so that would thus push the odds up near the top of the league.
And for the first time in a very long time, it appears the Browns are actually legitimate contenders.
The roster is stacked with talent and quarterback Baker Mayfield has only improved since debuting in 2018.
So can they do it?
Having the eighth-best odds shows they are expected to at least reach the postseason, but the challenge of taking on the Kansas City Chiefs and Buffalo Bills in the AFC remains.
And don’t forget about the competition in the AFC North.
The Browns winning it all would be an all-time NFL story, and would likely win a lot of people a lot of money.
