3 Best Sleeper Picks To Win The 2023 Super Bowl
Well, with all of the wild trades (Russell Wilson) and decisions (Aaron Rodgers) made in recent days throughout the NFL, Super Bowl LVII (that would be 57 for you non-Romans; kidding, because I’m not one either) odds have shifted dramatically.
All five of these look like good ones to throw at and put a little cheese on the line. But the top five betting choices are the Bills, Chiefs, Packers, Rams, and Bengals. Makes so much sense, but because not much makes sense any longer, I’m not taking one of those teams; not on a date or a concert or anywhere.
So, let’s get to the Rocky Mountain high big one first, shall we?
Denver Broncos (+1200)
Have ya heard that Russell Wilson, who is still only 33, is leaving Seattle for Denver? Yeah, sure you have, following the blockbuster trade that happened (The Seahawks got a ton in return, just to be clear). But here’s the thing: The Broncos are gonna attempt to duplicate the Peyton Manning path. He won Super Bowls as the quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts (2007) and then with the Denver Broncos (2016). Wilson led Seattle, as underdogs to the Broncos, to an NFL title in 2014 (Super Bowl XLVIII). So it would be the same nine-year difference if he can get the city elated again (too late, because, ya know, herb,) in 2023. Does that mean he can completely compete with a Denver team that was 7-10 last season? Who knows, but it's worth a shot.
Dallas Cowboys (+1400)
OK, for everyone who disses Dallas (the TV series as well as the Cowboys, and Jerry Jones, yes, ick, particularly lately), I know and I hear ya. But let’s get the fun out of the way, right now, and list the greatest nicknames of this sassy city.
- The Big D
- Triple D
- Funky Town
- Clowntown (That’s made up but if you’re down for clowning around, go to big T, and find me.)
- Panther City
- Metroplex (with Dallas)
- Queen City of the Prairie
- Fort Crunk
- Where the West Begins
- The Big Juicy
- Jerry World/Death Star
Now about that last one. Mmm. I don’t think Jerry is ever gonna rest, no matter what happens in the future, and as the Fort Forth Star-Telegram reports, the future looks “grim.”
Certain franchises just keep fighting through fraught and potential lawsuits and allegations (look at the Patriots and their owner). So what I’m saying is, never count out the Cowboys. Just because I’m not a fan of them doesn’t mean I don’t believe it’s still a talented team.
Too much greatness on the field. But hire a better coach. Just sayin’.
Los Angeles Chargers (+2500)
Look out, now! When someone as great as pass-rusher Khalil Mack joins an already-good and electrifying Chargers team, their odds are certain to drop so get on them now. Or not.
Still like them at anything above 10-1. They’re clearly trying to piece a team like the Rams and we all saw that outcome.
