7. Los Angeles Rams
> Avg. odds: 11.3/1
> 2018 record: 13-3
> Strength of schedule: 2nd easiest (tied)
> Key addition: Eric Weddle

Though oddsmakers are giving the defending NFC champions a good shot at winning Super Bowl LIV, experts think the Rams could take a step back in 2019. Despite adding veteran defenders Eric Weddle and Clay Matthews in the offseason, the team had several key losses, may have a Super Bowl hangover to deal with, and the health of todd Gurley may also hold the team back.

6. Chicago Bears
> Avg. odds: 14/1
> 2018 record: 12-4
> Strength of schedule: 5th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Haha Clinton-Dix

The Chicago Bears seemed poised to make a deep playoff run in 2018, but their season came to a heartbreaking end with a missed field goal. Chicago could be even better than they were the year before — they are returning much of their 2018 defense, which surrendered the fewest points in the NFL, and are counting on a breakout third season from QB Mitchell Trubisky.

5. Philadelphia Eagles
> Avg. odds: 12.6/1
> 2018 record: 9-7
> Strength of schedule: 7th easiest
> Key addition: DeSean Jackson

After winning the Super Bowl two seasons ago, the Philadelphia Eagles have established themselves as one of the best teams in the NFL. Much of the Eagles’ Super Bowl hopes depend on whether QB Carson Wentz can stay healthy, unlike the last two seasons. Wentz will have a new top target in free agent acquisition DeSean Jackson.

4. New Orleans Saints
> Avg. odds: 10.2/1
> 2018 record: 13-3
> Strength of schedule: 11th easiest
> Key addition: Jared Cook

The New Orleans Saints were one blown pass interference call away from making it to the Super Bowl last season, and the team is looking to come back strong. The Saints are likely to reach the playoffs with an easy schedule, and led by one-time Super Bowl MVP Drew Brees, they have a good chance to win the Super Bowl.

3. Los Angeles Chargers
> Avg. odds: 16/1
> 2018 record: 12-4
> Strength of schedule: 16th hardest (tied)
> Key addition: Thomas Davis

Oddsmakers don’t consider the Los Angeles Chargers one of the five most likely teams to win the Super Bowl. But expert NFL analysts think L.A. has the right mix of veteran leadership on offense with QB Philip Rivers and young talent on defense with Joey Bosa to challenge and even win the Super Bowl.
