NFL 2023: The Top 4 Super Bowl Contenders

With the dust now settled on a thrilling 2022 NFL season, fans can start to think about their team’s hopes of success during the next campaign.

The early ante-post betting ranks Kansas City Chiefs as the favourites to retain the title and they undoubtedly must feature in the championship conversation.

Plenty of punters will head to to grab the bet365 bonus code to take advantage of the odds of 6/1 on offer for the Chiefs to get the job done.

However, several other teams also have a genuine of getting their hands on the prestigious Vince Lombardi Trophy next season.

With that in mind, we look at the Chiefs’ chances of winning their third title in five years before assessing who will be among their main rivals.

Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have featured in the AFC Championship game in each of the last five seasons and have progressed to the Super Bowl on three occasions.

The combination of head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes is proving to be a golden ticket for the Chiefs and they will be tough to beat next season.

They have won seven straight titles in AFC West and it is difficult to imagine any of their rivals knocking them off their perch next term.

With home advantage helping them navigate safely through the play-offs, it would be no surprise to see the Chiefs pitch up in yet another Super Bowl.

San Francisco 49ers

The 49ers were swept aside by the Philadelphia Eagles in last season’s NFC Championship game, although there were mitigating reasons for that defeat.

Injuries to their quarterbacks scuppered their hopes of success, but the 49ers will be competitive if they avoid a similar fate next season.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan has moulded a team packed with offensive talent, and one which is not overly reliant on having an all-star signal-caller in the mix.

If the 49ers can keep their quarterbacks healthy, there is no reason why they cannot go one better by reaching the NFL championship game next season.

Dallas Cowboys

When you have got one of the highest earners in sports in your ranks, there is an understandable expectation that the team will win silverware.

Quarterback Dak Prescott is yet to help the Cowboys reach the Super Bowl, but that could change if everything falls into place during the next NFL campaign.

Prescott should benefit from the decision to put Mike McCarthy in charge of calling offensive plays, which will boost the Cowboys’ hopes of winning the Super Bowl.

Turnovers blighted Prescott’s productivity last season. If McCarthy can iron out those issues, the Cowboys may yet get a return on the significant investment they have made in their quarterback.

Buffalo Bills

The Bills have been heavily touted as Super Bowl possibles over the past three seasons, but they have repeatedly failed to get the job done.

Quarterback Josh Allen is one of the best in the business, but has been let down at crucial times by the Bills’ penchant for making mistakes at crucial times.

Head coach Sean McDermott has some tough decisions to make this summer and needs to get things right if the Bills are to finally unlock their title potential.

Getting Von Miller back to full fitness will likely be the difference between success and failure next season. The Bills are a much better team with him in the line-up.

Prediction: Picking the Super Bowl winner this far in advance is no easy task, but the Chiefs are guaranteed to give you a good run for your money.
