Once I consider potential 2023 Tremendous Bowl winners, I consider the Payments, the Bucs, the Chargers, the Bengals, and possibly even the Denver Broncos — the AFC West is stacked — relying on how dangerous I’m feeling. Maybe that’s why, in accordance with OddsChecker US, they make up 4 of the 5 groups receiving probably the most bets, during the last 60 days, to win the Tremendous Bowl subsequent yr. Any guesses who the final crew is perhaps?
It’s gotta be a crew with Tremendous Bowl aspirations, proper? Perhaps a crew with low odds however a giant payout just like the Raiders or Eagles? Not even shut.
It’s the New York Jets.
Per OddsChecker spokesperson Kyle Newman, during the last 60 days, solely the Payments (11.3 % of bets) have acquired extra motion than the Jets (5.3 %). The Buccaneers are shut with one other 5.3 %, however rank simply just below the Jets in that class.
It must be the Bengals, proper? It at all times is. Bettors noticed Cincinnati climb out of the AFC North basement to achieve the Tremendous Bowl and are searching for an analogous expertise to occur this yr. The Jets have a second-year quarterback, a head coach who comes from a system within the NFC West, and simply drafted a large receiver within the top-10 of the latest draft. It may possibly’t be a coincidence. Bettors are seeing historical past flash proper earlier than their eyes. I imply, simply take into consideration all of the instances in latest reminiscence a crew with only a few wins got here again the very subsequent yr to achieve the Tremendous Bowl. The Bengals final yr, the 2019 49ers…the 2001 Patriots? Okay. It hasn’t occurred that a lot just lately, but it surely occurred final yr and that’s all that issues.
The Jets (4-13 final season) are at the moment being given +15000 odds to win the Tremendous Bowl, or a 0.5 % likelihood — the third-lowest of any crew within the NFL. Solely the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons have worse odds. That being stated, the Bengals have been additionally given +15000 odds to win the Tremendous Bowl final yr and look what they did. They’d sportsbooks shaking of their boots hoping they wouldn’t need to pay out all these “Who Dey?” bettors from the beginning of the season. So, what do I or anyone else know? Nothing.
If you wish to guess on the goddamn Jets, go for it. I’m not going to attempt to cease you from going all gung-ho in your favourite crew. However let’s be clear, what the Bengals did final season was nothing wanting spectacular, and anticipating one other crew to copy that success might be not going to work out in the long term. In all probability.
