32. Miami Dolphins
> Avg. odds: 299/1
> 2018 record: 7-9
> Strength of schedule: 15th easiest
> Key addition: Josh Rosen

The Miami Dolphins are by far the biggest longshots to win Super Bowl LIV in 2020. The team has a new head coach in Brian Flores. He will have to choosing the team’s new starting quarterback. Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick and second-year pro Josh Rosen have been battling for the job during the preseason. Both have subpar records as starting QBs, so Vegas oddsmakers and expert predictors believe it would take something miraculous for Miami to win a Super Bowl.

31. Cincinnati Bengals
> Avg. odds: 175/1
> 2018 record: 6-10
> Strength of schedule: 2nd easiest (tied)
> Key addition: Zac Taylor

The Cincinnati Bengals are another team in flux, with rookie head coach Zac Taylor now at the helm. Though the Bengals are listed as having one of the easiest schedules of any team, their division rival Cleveland Browns are expected to be much improved and could make it difficult for the Bengals to even make it to the postseason.

30. Washington Redskins
> Avg. odds: 166/1
> 2018 record: 7-9
> Strength of schedule: The easiest
> Key addition: Dwayne Haskins

Highly drafted rookie QBs give fanbases a reason for optimism, but Washington’s first round pick Dwayne Haskins will start the season on the bench. Journeyman Case Keenum beat Haskins for the starting QB spot going into 2019. Keenum won’t have much help winning games, though, as the Redskins had just two Pro Bowl players last year. One of them, Trent Williams, is holding out from training camp, and seems determined to play for a different team in 2019.

29. Arizona Cardinals
> Avg. odds: 148/1
> 2018 record: 3-13
> Strength of schedule: 12th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Kyler Murray

The Arizona Cardinals’ 2018 season was a disaster. The team finished with the worst record in the NFL, then used its first overall pick to select QB Kyler Murray. The team also has a new head coach in Kliff Kingsbury. Cardinals fans will hope the success these two found at the college level will translate into the pros, but it may take years for the offense to gel. No rookie quarterback has ever started a Super Bowl, much less won it, and experts believe that the Cardinals hold relatively little chance of being the first to make it happen.

28. New York Giants
> Avg. odds: 138.2/1
> 2018 record: 5-11
> Strength of schedule: 2nd easiest (tied)
> Key addition: Daniel Jones

After a dismal 2018 season, the New York Giants could be even worse in 2019. The team traded away superstar wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. to the Cleveland Browns, which will make things even more difficult for 38-year-old QB Eli manning, who’s coming off one of his worst seasons as a pro. If he struggles to start the season, expect Giants fans to call for rookie QB Daniel Jones to start.
