Top 2022 Super Bowl predictions
After simulating the season 10,000 times, the model finds value in the Bills at +1300 in the Super Bowl 56 odds. The Bills finished the 2021 regular season at 13-3 after winning their last six games. Buffalo’s title hopes ended with a 38-24 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game.
The Bills are powered by quarterback Josh Allen, who was fifth in the league in passing with 4,544 yards. He completed 69.2 percent of his passes and threw 37 touchdowns, while being intercepted 10 times. He finished with a solid 107.2 rating. His favorite target was the league’s top receiver in Stefon Diggs, who caught 127 passes for 1,535 yards and eight touchdowns.
This offseason, the Bills have been busy improving their roster. They signed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to keep the pressure on opposing defenses. Last season, he finished with 61 receptions for 726 yards and five touchdowns. Other key additions or re-signings included tight end Jacob Hollister, linebacker Matt Milano, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie, tackle Daryl Williams, guard Jon Feliciano and linebacker Tyrell Adams, among others.
Resigning key parts of the offensive line was big and the Bills added a pair of edge rushers through the draft in Gregory Rousseau and Carlos Basham Jr., who both could blossom into solid contributors on defense. With the return of a potent offense, the Bills win Super Bowl LVI 9.9 percent of the time, according to the model. That’s more than the implied winning percentage of 7.1 based on the team’s +1300 Super Bowl odds 2022 at William Hill Sportsbook, making Buffalo a good value.
