Kansas City Chiefs Super Bowl Odds

Despite back-to-back Super Bowl victories, the Kansas City Chiefs are not the favorites to win the 2025 Super Bowl, according to initial odds setters. Instead, the spotlight is on this year’s runners up San Francisco 49ers, the team the Chiefs narrowly defeated with a 25-22 overtime win, as they’re tipped as the early favorites with +500 odds.

The Chiefs, who have clinched their second consecutive Super Bowl title and marked their fourth appearance in the last five championships, are listed as the +750 second choice for the 2025 Super Bowl victory. This places them in a prime position to carve out a legacy as one of the most formidable dynasties in Super Bowl history, especially as no team has ever secured three consecutive wins.

However, the 49ers face the challenge of overcoming a historical hurdle that has seen no NFC team win the Super Bowl the year following a loss since the Dallas Cowboys in 1971. As the early favorites, San Francisco is under pressure to break this long-standing streak.

The Chiefs’ recent victory not only secured them a spot in the history books as the eighth team to win back-to-back Super Bowls but also underscored their potential to achieve an unprecedented three-peat, a feat only approached by the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills with three or more consecutive appearances.

Historical trends in Super Bowl outcomes indicate that champions typically don’t emerge unexpectedly. Most often, a team’s victory in the Super Bowl is preceded by a period of notable success, including previous championship achievements.

In the history of the last 12 Super Bowl victories, 10 of those champions had participated in the postseason the year before they won the championship. Furthermore, six of these teams reached the conference championship game in the season preceding their Super Bowl triumph.

Only two teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2021 and the Philadelphia Eagles in 2018, managed to capture the Super Bowl title following a season in which they missed the playoffs.

49ers Favorites Again

Despite being favored to win Super Bowl 58 throughout the playoffs, the San Francisco 49ers fell short. With the 49ers and the Chiefs once again leading the odds, speculation about a potential Super Bowl rematch might arise. However, such a scenario is unlikely. Although there have been eight instances of Super Bowl rematches throughout NFL history, including matchups between the 49ers and Chiefs in 2020 and 2024, consecutive season rematches have never occurred.

Dark Horses for the 2025 Super Bowl

The Green Bay Packers and Houston Texans emerged as unexpected contenders in the latter part of the season, clinching playoff berths through impressive runs. Despite their success, this momentum hasn’t translated into favorable Super Bowl odds, with both teams positioned at +2200 to win the 2025 championship.

Similarly, the Los Angeles Rams, who also turned their season around in the second half, are entering the betting lines at +2800. This places them on par with the consistently struggling New York Jets and the Los Angeles Chargers, a team known for not meeting expectations.

Other playoff teams from 2023, like the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at +6600 and the Pittsburgh Steelers at +8000, are also facing long odds, indicating a lack of confidence in their potential to claim the upcoming Super Bowl title.
