With Super Bowl LVI in the books, the odds-makers were quick to get out some numbers for the next big game, Super Bowl LV on February 7, 2021, in Tampa, Florida.
Sports Betting Dime has the Kansas City Chiefs as the early favorite to repeat as NFL Champ, while Sports Betting AG has the San Francisco 49ers favored to buck the Super Bowl runner-up curse and break through with a win next season.
Last year at this time the Chicago Bears had favorable odds to be playing in the Super Bowl, but after a disappointing 8-8 finish to the 2019 season, the numbers aren’t as optimistic this time around.
Chicago comes in at 40/1 per one book and 25/1 per the other, so if you’re a big believer in the 2020 Bears you know where to go with your wager.

Here’s how @SportsBettingAG has their odds for Super Bowl 55:— Lester A. Wiltfong Jr. (@wiltfongjr) February 3, 2020
Patriots, Saints, Packers, Steelers: 16/1
Titans: 20/1#Bears, Rams, Vikings, Seahawks, Raiders: 25/1
Falcons, Eagles: 28/1
Browns, Texans, Colts: 33/1
Any of you guys think the Bears can bounce back in 2020?
Remember that just one year ago the 49ers were coming off a last place, 4-12 record, which was their fourth consecutive losing season, and their appearance in the Super Bowl wasn’t expected by anyone. Their success is just another reminder of the worst to first scenario that happens so often in the NFL and it’s why fans can look for optimism this time of year.
