BUFFALO, N.Y.- With the NFL only seeing two perfect seasons in history, and only one of them followed by a perfect postseason, online sportsbooks have +3300 odds for any team to go 20-0 over the course of the 2022-2023 season.
The last time that a team had a chance to complete an undefeated season and lift up the Lombardi Trophy was in 2007, when the New York Giants pulled of one of the biggest Super Bowl upsets in history, by denying Tom Brady and the Patriots that chance of the 19-0 season.
NFL Change Of Structure Affects Regular Season
For those future bets, the odds have lengthened, with the NFL expanding the regular season from 16 to 17 games played. Betting on a perfect season always risks the fact that a 16-0 team entering week 18 of the regular season, might not have the drive and concern for winning that last game.
As exciting as a perfect season would be, a lot of organizations tend to rest their star players for the playoffs, and not take any chances. For example, the Bills are the current favorite to win the Super Bowl, at +650 odds, and winning 16 straight games would most likely already clinch the number one seed in the AFC.
However, this was not the case last season, with no teams clinching a playoff spot until week 15, which had only happened three times since 1978. It is important to note that the playoff seeding was expanded to 14 teams for the 2021 season.
In the final week of the NFL regular season, there were still four playoff spots up for grabs. The AFC was also uncertain, with no number one seed decided and the AFC East division title left un-clinched, with many opportunities to bet on the playoffs still.

Bucs At 11.5

The Bills start their season by taking on the 2021 Super Bowl Champions, and the Rams are the slight favorite, set at -120 for the opening season game. The Rams would be a tough team to wager on for winning 17 games, being in a NFC West Division that produced three playoff teams last season.
Looking at Tom Brady and the Bucs, they start their season at in Dallas, with -135 odds to beat a team that has lost Amari Cooper and has raise deserves doubt after years of not winning in the playoffs.
As the favorites to win the Super Bowl, the Bills and the Bucs are two teams that have the highest win projections for the regular season, partly due to their strength of schedule, and are two teams to root for, if betting on any team to go 20-0 over the course of the 2022-2023 NFL season.
