2020 Super Bowl odds: Cowboys tied with Eagles for seventh-best odds

The Super Bowl is still over a week but we already have new Super Bowl odds for all 32 teams next year!

NFL: NFC Divisional Playoff-Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Out with the old and in with the new. Super Bowl LIII hasn’t even been played yet and we already have new Super Bowl odds! Sure, the Patriots and Rams are the two teams left standing at the end of this season, so it’s no surprise that they top the list of next year’s favorites as well, but the odds of both teams repeating as Super Bow participants next year are pretty slim.

In fact, the odds are stacked heavily against either of this year’s finalists making it back to the Super Bowl next year:

Season Super Bowl Winner Next season Loser Next season
2017 LII (52) Eagles Divisional Round Patriots Super Bowl
2016 LI (51 Patriots Super Bowl loser Falcons Divisional Round
2015 50 Broncos missed playoffs Panthers missed playoffs
2014 XLIX (49) Patriots Conference Championship Seahawks Divisional Round
2013 XLVIII (48) Seahawks Super Bowl loser Broncos Divisional Round
2012 XLVII (47) Ravens missed playoffs 49ers Conference Championship
2011 XLVI (46) NY Giants missed playoffs Patriots Conference Championship
2010 XLV (45) Packers Divisional Round Steelers Wildcard Round
2009 XLIV (44) Saints Wildcard Round Colts Wildcard Round
2008 XLIII (43) Steelers missed playoffs Cardinals Divisional Round
2007 XLII (42) NY Giants Divisional Round Patriots missed playoffs
2006 XLI (41) Colts Divisional Round Bears missed playoffs
2005 XL (40) Steelers missed playoffs Seahawks Divisional Round
2004 XXXIX (39) Patriots Divisional Round Eagles missed playoffs
2003 XXXVIII (38) Patriots Super Bowl winner Panthers missed playoffs
2002 XXXVII (37) Buccaneers missed playoffs Raiders missed playoffs

  • 12 of the 32 teams participating in the 16 Super Bowls since re-alignment in 2002 missed the playoffs entirely the next season.
  • Only seven of those 32 teams made it beyond the Divisional Round the following year.
  • Only once has the Super Bowl loser made it back to the Super Bow the following year (this year’s Patriots)

Yet despite that predictable unpredictability, the Vegas odds have this year’s top teams as next year’s favorites. They are followed by the Chiefs, Chargers, Saints, and Colts. The Cowboys open at +2000, which ties them for the seventh-best odds with the Eagles and Vikings, and ranks them tied for 10th overall.

But a lot can and will happen between now and the end of next season.

Here’s how the 32 NFL teams stack up in the early Vegas odds for the 2020 Super Bowl.

Team Odds Team Odds
Patriots +700 Texans +4000
Rams +700 49ers +4500
Chargers +800 Giants +5000
Chiefs +800 Jaguars +5000
Colts +1000 Panthers +5000
Saints +1000 Titans +6000
Bears +1300 Buccaneers +6500
Steelers +1600 Bengals +10000
Packers +1800 Bills +10000
Cowboys +2000 Broncos +10000
Eagles +2000 Cardinals +10000
Vikings +2000 Jets +10000
Browns +3000 Lions +10000
Falcons +3000 Raiders +10000
Ravens +3000 Redskins +15000
Seahawks +4000 Dolphins +30000

The Cowboys have 16 free agents, but the core of their roster will remain intact. They head into 2019 with eight Pro Bowlers on their roster, and the strong 2018 draft class led by Leighton Vander Esch, Connor Williams, and Michael Gallup will likely play an even bigger role next year. Plus they’ll have the draft and free agency to add the pieces that will get them beyond the divisional round of the playoffs next season.

Vegas notwithstanding, history doesn’t like the Patriots or the Rams making a repeat appearance in the Super Bowl. Who is your favorite to take home the Lombardi Trophy next year? Let us know who your NFL underdog is, and why.
