Super-Early Staff Picks To Win Super Bowl LVII

Lucy Burdge: Patriots +5000 at DraftKings
After seeing what Mac Jones’ new diet and workout plan has done for his physique, I don’t see why the Patriots can’t make a Super Bowl run this season. Jones’ passing has reportedly improved this offseason as well, which is promising. After a solid rookie season, I think he can avoid a sophomore slump in his second season in the NFL. I never count out Bill Belichick to have something up his sleeve and what he did with Jones last season to get this team to the playoffs was impressive. I think they can take it even further this season. The team still needs an offensive coordinator, but I think Jones’ talent will be huge for this team when it comes to making a Super Bowl run.

Dan Karpuc: Indianapolis Colts +2500 at BetMGM
This is a solid team on both ends of the football and I consider Frank Reich one of the best coaches in the NFL. Matt Ryan replaces Carson Wentz at quarterback, and RB Jonathan Taylor should continue to thrive behind an offensive line that will not only open up holes for him, but keep Ryan upright. We’ve seen the veteran quarterback win an MVP and put up huge numbers when surrounded with true weapons, and I think he still has enough left in the tank to contribute in a huge way. Stephen Gilmore’s signing could also prove to be a huge offseason move, as he will instantly fill the all-important CB1 role. I expect the Colts to roll in the weak AFC South and definitely think they’re a contender with a lot of value at this point in the early summer. Are they the most probable team to win it all? No. However, should they have the 12th-shortest odds? Also no.

Brad Pinkerton: Ravens +2200 at Caesars

Injuries to Lamar Jackson sunk the Ravens last season as they dropped their final six games to finish 8-9 and in last place in the AFC North. But the Ravens should be set up for a bounce-back year, assuming Jackson can stay healthy. Not only will they play a last-place schedule that features meetings with the Giants, Jaguars and Broncos, they also get to face the weak NFC South (with the exception of Tompa Bay, of course) and a so-so AFC East, while their own division could be wide-open as well. Don't forget that Baltimore started 5-1 last season, and with a favorable schedule, the Ravens could be playoff-bound once again, making these +2200 odds look like great value.
