The Dallas Cowboys aren’t in terrible shape, at least based on their odds to win Super Bowl LVI, according to the latest oddsmakers.

It’s going to be easy for speculators to suggest Super Bowl LVI will simply be a rematch between the two teams who went up against each other for the Lombardi Trophy last season, the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Yet that story played itself out already. The Bucs won. Time to move on.

All too often, based on the circumstances yet to be known, other contenders frequently rise out of nowhere, and 2021 could be the year in which the Dallas Cowboys return to prominence and emerge as a Super Bowl contender, too.

Quarterback Dak Prescott looks fully healthy and recovered from his shoulder injury that created so much worry and attention earlier this offseason. And with a prolific offense, Dallas shouldn’t have too much of an issue worrying about scoring.

A reinforced and revamped defense should also make significant strides over last year, too.

Despite those developments and being in a wide-open NFC East, however, the Cowboys’ odds to hoist the Lombardi Trophy this season are perhaps a bit lower than what they should be.

Dallas Cowboys in the middle of the pack for Super Bowl LVI odds

It’s not a shocker to see both the Chiefs and the Bucs at the very top of Super Bowl LVI odds this season. According to the folks over at WynnBET, Kansas City is the favorite at plus-475. Tampa Bay, meanwhile, is No. 2 with plus-650 odds.

Much further down the list, you’ll find the Dallas Cowboys at plus-3000.

This puts Dallas in an eight-way tie with the Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, Los Angeles Chargers, Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and Tennessee Titans for the 10th best odds to win Super Bowl LVI.

With those odds, if you were to bet $100, a Cowboys Super Bowl win would you $3,000.

Dallas Cowboys favored to win 9 regular-season games in 2021

On the surface, it might appear as if the Cowboys’ Super Bowl odds are a bit low, which could subsequently mean a worthy bet with relatively low risk.

But looking at the regular-season win projections, WynnBet has the favorite at nine games at plus-400, the second-best betting favorite being eight wins at plus-425.

Getting 10 wins on the double-digit threshold, which could ultimately be enough to secure the NFC East crown, has odds at plus-500.

Perhaps that’s why the Super Bowl odds are a bit low, as the oddsmakers seem to feel Dallas will simply be another middle-of-the-pack squad this season.
