Happy Fourth of July everyone!
What better way to celebrate Independence Day than a new edition of NFL Power Rankings? There hasn't been much movement in the odds, but it's the offseason, so we can't expect too much.
Each week at BetSided, yours truly is breaking down the latest roster moves, injuries and more in our NFL Power Rankings. It's never too early to consider your Super Bowl futures, so without further ado, here's my latest power rankings based on the odds at WynnBET Sportsbook to win it all in 2022.
1. Buffalo Bills (+650)
I might be all in on the this being the Bills' year, as they have an extremely well-rounded roster and Josh Allen is a legitimate star.
2. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+600)
The Buccaneers have been the favorite in the odds all offseason. Does Vegas know something about Tom Brady we don't?
3. Los Angeles Rams (+1000)
The easiest decision I have in the Power Rankings is keeping the defending champs in the top three as they run it back in 2022.
4. Kansas City Chiefs (+1000)
There's been very little movement in the odds, so it's hard to move KC up or down as we start July.
5. Green Bay Packers (+1000)
I'm not sold on the Packers at this number after they've come up short so many times with Davante Adams, and now he's in Vegas.
6. Los Angeles Chargers (+1600)
The Chargers' improved defense could be the reason they make the leap to a playoff team in 2022.
7. Dallas Cowboys (+1600)
The Dallas defense is intriguing to me after losing a few key players in the offseason, but the focus will likely be on how the Cowboys replace Amari Cooper on offense.
8. Baltimore Ravens (+2000)
The Ravens' biggest concern this offseason is locking Lamar Jackson down to a long-term deal.
9. Denver Broncos (+1800)
The Broncos are going to "Let Russ Cook" in 2022, but if they miss the playoffs this may be deemed a huge failure.
10. Cincinnati Bengals (+2500)
If you believe Joe Burrow and company can make it to back-to-back Super Bowls, this is a pretty solid number compared to other AFC contenders.
11. Philadelphia Eagles (+2000)
The Eagles have jumped from +2500 to +2000 in the odds over the past week, so Vegas sees the vision with this improved roster.
12. San Francisco 49ers (+1800)
The 49ers have pretty short odds, but I wouldn't trust them until we see how Trey Lance is going to play.
13. Indianapolis Colts (+2000)
The Colts should be better with Matt Ryan under center in 2022. However, they can't get out to a slow start again, which has become their signature under Frank Reich.
14. Las Vegas Raiders (+4000)
I like the Raiders' roster, but the oddsmakers have them as the weakest team in the AFC West entering the 2022 season.
15. Arizona Cardinals (+4000)
Is this the year that Kliff Kingsbury's team doesn't fall apart in the second half?
16. New England Patriots (+3000)
Mac Jones is going to need to take a step for the Patriots to repeat last year's success in a suddenly loaded AFC.
17. New Orleans Saints (+3000)
The Saints have made some win-now moves this offseason, but they may not be good enough to overtake the Bucs in the NFC South.
18. Cleveland Browns (+2000)
Deshaun Watson shouldn't play football this year, but that's still to be decided. I won't value the Browns' odds regardless until we know who is playing quarterback in his place.
19. Tennessee Titans (+3000)
It feels weird having Tennessee this low on the list, but I don't trust this offense without an elite outside weapon and Ryan Tannehill at quarterback.
20. Miami Dolphins (+5000)
It's a make or break season for Tua Tagovailoa, as the Dolphins have put a solid team around him entering 2022.
21. Minnesota Vikings (+4000)
Minnesota may have a chance to sneak into the playoffs if it can beat up on the Lions and Bears in the NFC North.
22. Pittsburgh Steelers (+7500)
I am excited for training camp to see how Mitch Trubisky looks in his second chance with Pittsburgh.
23. Jacksonville Jaguars (+10000)
The AFC South is wide open in 2022, as no team has a proven offensive attack with key weapons leaving the division. Could the Jags and Trevor Lawrence make a leap?
24. Washington Commanders (+10000)
Washington's odds didn't move, but the team brought back Terry McLaurin on a three-year deal, which should help Carson Wentz.
25. Chicago Bears (+10000)
I'm rooting for Justin Fields in 2022, since last year's quarterback class was largely underwhelming in Year 1.
26. New York Giants (+10000)
Brian Daboll could become the new head coaching guru if he turns this Giants offense around.
27. New York Jets (+12500)
I think these odds are a little disrespectful after the Jets' offseason, but I guess the jury is still out on Zach Wilson.
28. Carolina Panthers (+10000)
Give me the UNDER on all of Sam Darnold's season-long props. I can't see him starting for Carolina all season.
29. Seattle Seahawks (+15000)
I'm waiting for Seattle to trade for a quarterback, because I can't see Pete Carroll signing up for a rebuild.
30. Detroit Lions (+20000)
The Lions put together a solid offseason, but Jared Goff is still Jared Goff.
31. Atlanta Falcons (+20000)
Oddsmakers don't expect Marcus Mariota to resurrect his career in Atlanta in 2022.
32. Houston Texans (+20000)
I feel bad keeping Houston in last, but it can prove me wrong when the 2022 season kicks off.
