The Super Bowl is fast approaching. It is scheduled to take place on the 12th of February 2023 in the city of Glendale, Arizona.

The city of Glendale will be hosting the game in the State Farm Stadium. Sports fans are already placing their Super Bowl prop bets on their favorite teams and players.

But who are people placing their bets on? Who are the favorites for the 2023 Super Bowl?

This article will present some of the teams that are performing well in the NFL’s regular season. Based on these teams’ current and predicted performances, a list of 2023 Super Bowl favorites will be drawn up.

NFL Superbowl 2023

Which teams are currently performing well?

During the NFL’s 2022-2023 regular season, some teams really stood out. As of early January 2023, the NFL’s power rankings placed the Buffalo Bills in first position.

This team is definitely one of the National Football League’s best teams. Its excellent performance is very promising, especially this close to the Super Bowl game in February.

The team is a Super Bowl favorite, despite recently seeing one of its football stars suffer a cardiac arrest on the field.

Damar Hamlin, a 24-year-old Buffalo Bills player, went into cardiac arrest during a match against the Cincinnati Bengals. The player was in critical condition for a while but thankfully survived.

As for other promising teams, an ESPN ranking also listed the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles in their top three NFL teams.

However, it is important to note that these types of rankings can easily fluctuate throughout the season, changing week after week. Football teams can easily lose their place in the top three teams but gain it back several weeks later.

Individuals who place their bets depending on these types of rankings should bear that in mind and bet accordingly.

That being said, the impressive performance of teams like the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs is not to be ignored or discarded. These teams will probably deliver more impressive performances throughout the season which is why they are Super Bowl favorites for many.

Who are the 2023 Super Bowl favorites?

As mentioned above, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Buffalo Bills are the two early favorites for the 2023 Super Bowl.

NBC Sports places the Kansas City Chiefs in first position and the Buffalo Bills in second position. In third position, they placed the Los Angeles Rams team.

Again, these predictions and rankings may change and remain far from definite. As shown during the 2022 FIFA World Cup, favorites, rankings and predictions may turn out to be completely wrong.

After these three favorites comes the Green Bay Packers, the San Francisco 49ers and the Dallas Cowboys.

To summarize, here are the 2023 Super Bowl favorites according to NBC Sports:

  1. Kansas City Chiefs
  2. Buffalo Bills
  3. Los Angeles Rams
  4. Green Bay Packers
  5. San Francisco 49ers
  6. Dallas Cowboys
  7. Baltimore Ravens
  8. Cincinnati Bengals
  9. Tennessee Titans
  10. Denver Broncos

Favorite NFL players

In 2022, an article on the NFL’s website listed the best football players of the year. This ranking could change in 2023 or could prove to be right once again.

These players, and the teams they play for, can also be an indicator of the most promising NFL teams and the potential future Super Bowl winner.

Here are the top three best American football players of 2022 according to the NFL:

  1. Tom Brady
  2. Aaron Donald
  3. Aaron Rodgers

Tom Brady is the oldest currently active player in the NFL. He plays for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers which is not in the current top-three rankings but might make an impressive comeback.

Considering his age, Brady might be particularly keen on making it to the 2023 Super Bowl. Although the player came out of retirement to continue playing, he might not have many Super Bowl opportunities left.

Because of this, he might be particularly eager to improve his team’s stats and boost their chances of making it to the Super Bowl over the next few weeks.

Aaron Donald plays for the Los Angeles Rams which is currently ranked third in the 2023 Super Bowl favorite rankings. The famous and highly talented player is already helping his team win and improve their chances of making it to the Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers plays for the Green Bay Packers which are currently ranked fourth, just after the Los Angeles Rams, in the NBC Sports ranking. Just like Tom Brady, Rodgers might want to win this year’s Super Bowl due to his age.

Rodgers has said that he is preparing to retire. He will probably want to make the most of his last football season(s) by making it to the 2023 Super Bowl.

There are many other highly talented NFL players, but these are the top 2022 players according to the NFL. All three of these players will be determined to take their team to the 2023 Super Bowl and to win.

Whatever the outcome is, this 2023 season promises to be very exciting.
