NFL 2022-23 season: What You Need to Know

February’s Super Bowl LVI was a thing of beauty as the thousands of fans who packed into the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California, were treated to a show. On the field of play, we saw the Los Angeles Rams edge out the Cincinnati Bengals by 23 points to 20 in what was a gripping contest and real advert for the NFL. The halftime show came close to upsetting the football as gods of the rap game, Snoop Dogg, Dr Dre, and Eminem got fans out of their seats. It was an occasion that will live long in the memory.

But it’s in the past, and football doesn’t stand still. Preparations are already well underway for the 2022/23 National Football League season and Super Bowl LVII. Players are enjoying a break while keeping in preparation for pre-season, coaches are busy putting the finishing touches to their wish-list for the upcoming player trade and bookmakers, such as the California sportsbooks, are offering their markets and odds on the new season. 

All that’s left is for supporters to make their predictions. There may be no football to speak of for the next few months, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t plenty to be getting on with. Fans can follow the sports news stories concerning their team, track the injury news and player trades then predict how the season will play out. The leading betting apps allow members to wager on the team they expect to win the Super Bowl as well as the conferences and divisions. There’s even an option to take a side to make the playoffs. 

If you do plan on taking advantage of the newly relaxed gambling laws in the United States and Canada this summer, it’s important that you have all the information you need to help you come up with the best prediction possible. That’s where we come in. Our team of sports betting content writers provide you with all the information you need on the 2022/23 NFL season, including the date of the Super Bowl LVII and who the bookies are backing.

The host stadium for next year’s event will be State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

Plans for Super Bowl LVII remain a work in progress so there are still some aspects of the match to be decided. These will be announced in due course by the NFL and fans are waiting to see who will provide the halftime entertainment as they have big shoes to fill following the performances of Dre, Snoop, and Eminem in Inglewood.

The betting favourites

All major betting apps have created their book for the coming season and they make for interesting reading. The Super Bowl outright betting market is dominated by the Buffalo Bills who are ranked as the team to beat. They are favourites with all respected betting apps but it’s a competitive market with plenty of dark horses and value around.

If the Bills live up to expectations and win the Super Bowl they will delight both backers and fans but if they don’t do the business, where does the winner come from? According to the betting, the Kansas City Chiefs are second favourites with Los Angeles Rams third in line.
