The 2019 NFL Draft is completed. Outside of some un-drafted free agents or late-spring/early summer free agent signings or trades, NFL teams have the players they’ll head into the 2019 season with on the roster.


With that, NFL oddsmakers now have more data for all 32 teams, and with new data, comes new odds for Super Bowl 54.

Several teams saw their odds improve while others saw their odds take a big dip. Below you’ll see a chart with the current and pre-draft odds for all 32 teams. Teams with odds that improved are highlighted in green. Teams with odds that declined are highlighted in red. Teams that stayed the same are left with no color.


Teams With Odds That Improved

Only four teams saw their odds to win Super Bowl 54 increase after the NFL Draft, Indianapolis Colts, Philadelphia Eagles, Los Angeles Rams and Pittsburgh Steelers. The Rams still sit behind the Patriots and Chiefs as the team with the 3rd best odds to win the Super Bowl but did jump from 10-1 to 8-1 after their impressive draft picks. Los Angeles finished 4th on our Quality Stat Power Rankings in 2018.


Moving up from 12-1 to 10-1 are the Indianapolis Colts who remain the team with the 6th best odds to hoist the Lombardi. Indy was 9th on our Intelligence Index in 2018.  


The Super Bowl Champions from 2017/2018, Philadelphia Eagles, are now inside the Top 10 after seeing a jump in their odds from 20-1 to 14-1. Of the 12 teams to make the playoffs, only the Cowboys and Eagles ranked outside the Top 10 on our Power Rankings.

The biggest favorable odds boost belongs to the Pittsburgh Steelers who went from 30-1 to 20-1 and now have the 12th best odds to win Super Bowl 54. The Steelers made a trade in the 1st round of the Draft to move up the draft board in order to select Michigan Linebacker Devin Bush with the 10th overall pick. In 2018, Pittsburgh ranked 19th in our Defensive Rusher Rating, adding Bush to the middle of the Defense will certainly help their run-defense.


Teams With Odds That Declined

The oddsmakers at the Westgate Sportsbook downgraded nearly a dozen teams after the draft ended.  The Minnesota Vikings, San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, Carolina Panthers, New York Jets, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Arizona Cardinals all saw their odds decrease.


The Cardinals will likely start the 1st Overall Pick, Kyler Murray, at Quarterback come Week 1 and thus saw their odds go from 100-1 to 200-1. It was by far the biggest decrease by any team. Arizona is now tied with the Miami Dolphins, whom they traded QB Josh Rosen to, with the worst odds in the league.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Giants both saw their odds go from 80-1 to 100-1.


Despite Quinnen Williams, who many consider to be the best prospect in the entire 2019 class, being selected by the Jets with the 3rd overall pick, New York saw a big slide in their odds. They fell from 50-1 down to 80-1.

Dropping from 50-1 to 60-1 are both the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars, both of which were two of the dumbest teams in football in 2018 finished 23rd (Panthers) and 29th (Jaguars) on our Intelligence Index.

Both he Houston Texans and Seattle Seahawks headed into the draft with 25-1 odds to win the Championship but exited with 30-1 odds.


Finally, the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings dropped from their original Pre-Draft odds as well. Originally they were 20-1 but currently sit at 25-1.

Here's a look at each team's Post and Pre Draft odds to win Super Bowl 54.
