Las Vegas Raiders at 50-1 underdogs to win Super Bowl 55
With the Kansas City Chiefs winning Super Bowl LIV against the San Fransico 49ers, oddsmakers are already looking ahead to Super Bowl 55. Not surprisingly, the Chiefs have the best odds (6-1) to win next year’s big game, according to BetMGM. But what is somewhat surprising is to see where the Raiders fall in these odds.
According to Caesars Sportsbooks, the odds for the Raiders to win next year’s Super Bowl sit at 50-1. That is notable because it is tied with playoff teams from this season, such as the Texans, Titans, and Bills.
Oddsmakers appear optimistic that the Raiders can continue to improve in the AFC as they could potentially become a legit contender. With two picks in the first round, endless amounts of cap space and an incredibly young roster, we certainly haven’t seen the best of Jon Gruden’s team yet in his second stint with the Raiders.
If the Raiders can find a way to upgrade their wide receiver corps and their linebacker unit, it wouldn’t be all that surprising to see this team improve by two or three wins again this season. At 50-1 odds, the Raiders are certainly an interesting long-shot bet to make some noise next year in the playoffs.
