The Los Angeles Rams won Super Bowl LVI after going all in this season.
The marquee players they acquired made significant contributions during their win over the Cincinnati Bengals.
But while they are the current kings of the NFL, sportsbooks argue that the Rams won’t be able to defend their title next season.

In the latest betting odds revealed by Caesars Sportsbook, the Rams have the third-best odds of winning Super Bowl LVII.
Taking the top two spots are the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills, who fought in an epic Divisional Weekend showdown at Arrowhead Stadium.
Without question, Kansas City and Buffalo are elite teams in the stacked AFC and the entire NFL.
But perhaps Caesars are aware of the cautions that the Rams will address in the offseason.
Lingering Questions For The Rams
The Rams earned the right to celebrate their victory because they fought hard for it.
But once the Super Bowl hangover is done, general manager Les Snead has some important matters to fix.
First, they won’t have picks in the first three rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft which makes it tougher to upgrade on certain roster spots, especially in the secondary.
Third, Odell Beckham Jr.’s ACL injury may put a dent in what could have shaped up as a scary receiving unit.
Amidst those concerns, the Rams are also over the projected 2022 salary cap.
Factoring all those conditions made Caesars in making a realistic prediction that the Rams’ championship window may have opened and closed after one season.
It’s not that they can’t play in the Super Bowl again next season.
However, defending their title will be more of an uphill battle.
