Is This The Season That Buffalo Finally Wins the Super Bowl?

If there’s one word you wouldn’t use in a hurry to describe the NFL, that would be ‘predictable’.

Before each season, the pundits and experts run the rule over each of the franchises at football’s top table and make their predictions over who they expect to dominate each conference and, ultimately, proceed to the Super Bowl. And, more often than not, they are wide of the mark thanks to the unique unpredictability of the NFL.

Ahead of the 2022 campaign, the sportsbooks believe that it’s the Buffalo Bills that will finally end their 62-year wait to get their hands on the Vince Lombardi trophy, making Sean McDermott’s team their 7/1 favorites to win the Super Bowl.

The 2022 NFL season looks set to be one of the most tightly contested in years, and that will mesh perfectly with the ever-increasing popularity of American football. Super Bowl LVI enjoyed a total TV audience share of 72% in the United States, and a 30-second ad shown during half-time cost a cool $5.5 million.

Betting on NFL games is also on the rise in a number of states, with many sportsbooks also offering casino games - including football-inspired slots like Gridiron Glory - and poker tournaments. An in-depth LeoVegas Casino review reveals just one site in this tradition. The influence of the NFL across several industries is a real testament to its widespread popularity and suggests another season in which fans will engage with the sport in various ways.

The Bills have spun the wheel and rolled the dice on Von Miller being the missing piece of their title-winning jigsaw. So, can the eight-time Pro Bowl linebacker be the man that ends Buffalo’s rotten run of luck in the Super Bowl?

Like we say, there’s nothing predictable about the NFL. However, one trend that has emerged in recent years is that success seems to follow Miller around – he’s a two-time Super Bowl champion with different franchises, first with the Denver Broncos in 2016 and latterly with the Los Angeles Rams in February.

A former Super Bowl MVP, Miller is one of the most intense and dynamic defenders, per ESPN, in football. The as-yet-uncrowned king of sacks, he will add a new dimension to an already high-quality defense that has dominated the AFC East lately and was the finest of margins away from the AFC Championship game in 2021.

You look at some of the individuals that McDermott has at his disposal now, from Miller and Jordan Poyer to elite offensive operators like quarterback Josh Allen and wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Don’t sleep on Tre’Davious White either – he will shape up as another classy weapon in the Bills' arsenal if he overcomes the ACL tear he suffered last season.

When you take a look at the condition of the Bills’ major rivals for the Super Bowl, it only serves to strengthen their case. The loss of Tyreek Hill, as reported by The Guardian, will surely hamper Kansas City Chiefs’ bid – Patrick Mahomes notwithstanding, while the history books confirm how tough it will be for the Rams this term as defending champions.

The 49ers have tasted so many heart-breaking defeats that you wonder if their battle scars will prove too deep, while the Bucs will be heavily reliant on the 44-year-old body of Tom Brady standing up to the rigors of modern football.

There’s the very real risk of having egg on your face when making NFL predictions. But when you look at the components the Buffalo Bills have to work with in 2022, it’s difficult not to see them coming very close to ending their six-decade-long wait for a Super Bowl title.
