Yes, Super Bowl LII just ended in dramatic fashion, but it is never too early to look ahead to Super Bowl LIII.
Immediately following the Eagles win, Westgate Las Vegas released their odds for Super Bowl LIII via CBS Sports:
The New England Patriots are the favorite at +450, while the Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles are second at +600.
Of course, the proven consistency over the years could factor in for the Patriots, as well as playing in the weaker conference, but the Eagles should be the ones favored.
The Eagles are on track to be even better next year as their franchise QB will return. Before his devastating ACL injury, Carson Wentz was leading the MVP race in just his second season.
Perhaps the most questionable number is the Steelers at third at +800. When we last saw them, the Steelers were being blown off their home field against the Jaguars (+2000) in a game they looked like their window had essentially closed.
The 49ers at +3000 appears to be the best value bet assuming Jimmy Garoppolo is back after he led the team to five straight victories at the end of the season. The 49ers also will have another year of experience with a very young, talented defense.
