We know which teams will be competing to win Super Bowl LV, but who could be in the cards for next year’s Super Bowl LVI? The oddsmakers at BetMGM are putting the New Orleans Saints up there with other title contenders from around the league, tying them with the Seattle Seahawks (+1,800). That’s tied for the seventh-best odds in the NFL.

Sure, both of the teams in this year’s championship game are ranked ahead of them. The Kansas City Chiefs (+600) lead the pack, while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are locked in a three-way tie with the Baltimore Ravens and Buffalo Bills (+1,200) for third place, with the Green Bay Packers (+900) sandwiched in-between.

It makes sense for the Saints to be so highly regarded despite what happens with Drew Brees, who is expected to enter retirement this offseason. New Orleans is the only team besides Kansas City to reach the playoffs in each of the last four years, and they’ve gone 8-1 in games without Drew Brees starting the last two years. They have a talented roster on both sides of the ball and should again be in the mix for a second Lombardi Trophy.
