The Kansas City Chiefs are officially Super Bowl LIV champions, as they defeated the San Francisco 49ers, 31-20, in Miami. It was an incredible comeback victory, as the Chiefs scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter to escape with their first Super Bowl victory in 50 years.
The 49ers battled valiantly, however, and are sitting pretty when it comes to the future -- just like several teams who did not make the big game this year. While Super Bowl LIV is still fresh in the minds of Chiefs fans, everyone else is moving on to the 2020 season.
Which teams have the best odds to make the Super Bowl next year? Which playoff teams does Vegas believe in, and which teams that missed the postseason this year does Vegas think can make a run next year?
The Chiefs used an epic fourth-quarter comeback to win their first Super Bowl title in 50 years, and there's a lot to go over.

According to William Hill, the Chiefs and 49ers are two of the three teams listed with the best odds at 7/1. The third team is the Baltimore Ravens, who were the Super Bowl favorites once this season reached the playoffs, but Lamar Jackson and Co. were upset by the Tennessee Titans in the divisional round.
Following the Chiefs, 49ers, and Ravens are the New Orleans Saints at 10/1. They were another team among the Super Bowl favorites this year, but they were shocked by the Minnesota Vikings in New Orleans on Wild-Card Weekend.
Four more playoff teams follow: The New England Patriots (12/1), the Green Bay Packers (15/1), the Philadelphia Eagles (15/1) and the Seattle Seahawks (18/1). In ninth place comes our first team to miss the postseason this year -- the Dallas Cowboys at 20/1. Apparently, Vegas believes will take this team to a new level, and introducing a head coach who has hoisted a Lombardi Trophy previously can make an impact in his first season in Dallas.
