The public is backing the San Francisco 49ers to win it all this season. However, the Baltimore Ravens, Buffalo Bills, Dallas Cowboys, and Kansas City Chiefs are also listed on the top five of the DraftKings Super Bowl Champion betting board.

Join me as I take a closer look at the top 5 contenders with a Super Bowl LVIII free prediction for Super Bowl LVIII.

2024 Super Bowl Champion Best Bet

The San Francisco 49ers are the betting favorite to win Super Bowl LVIII, and why not? The 49ers sit atop the NFC West standings with a 12-5 record and boast the highest points differential in the NFC. The 49ers have the second-best record in the NFC and open their march to Super Bowl LVIII with a bye. That’s a good thing for them, as it means an extra two weeks of rest for a number of 49ers taking Week 18 off to tend to their numerous injuries.

The Baltimore Ravens as a 3-1 underdog is a head-scratcher. The Ravens boast the best record in the NFL, with the highest points differential. Baltimore receives a bye into the AFC Divisional Round and will rest a number of players for their Week 18 encounter with the Pittsburgh Steelers. 

After watching the Ravens demolish the 49ers in San Francisco and then burying Miami in Week 17, its hard to see anyone in the AFC beating them and +310 at DraftKings Maryland for this wager is as good as it gets.

The Buffalo Bills are the third-favorite to win Super Bowl LVIII and won a tough matchup Sunday night against Miami for the AFC East title. Winning the AFC East gives Buffalo home field advantage for at least the AFC Wild Card round and being 3-4 this season as the away team doesn’t lend much confidence in backing the Bills further on.

Dallas won the NFC East with a victory Sunday at Washington. They are a 4-5 away team and they needed to win their division because they are undefeated at home and their road woes might have kept the Cowboys from getting past the NFC Wild Card game. 

Bettors don’t seem to have much faith these days in defending Super Bowl LVII Champion Kansas City Chiefs. +1000 on head coach Andy Reid and a Chiefs team with 11 wins and home field advantage in their AFC Wild Card matchup with possibly Buffalo. The Chiefs offense has underpermormed some expectations but they are the Chiefs, Patrick Mahomes is the best quarterback in the game and maybe worth a sprinkle.

Finally, I really like Baltimore to win Super Bowl LVIII. Quarterback Lamar Jackson is entering the playoffs healthier than he’s been in years and Baltimore is playing lights out football. They will enjoy home field advantage where they are 7-2 at this season and 8-2 including their game in Germany and boast the highest points differential in the NFL by a longshot. 

They demolished the 49ers in San Francisco and the only thing standing in the Ravens way are themselves.

My Super Bowl Prediction: Baltimore Ravens +310 at DraftKings
