The Los Angeles Rams are once again going all-in to try and claim a Super Bowl title.

LA is going to cough up two first round draft picks and a third round pick to land veteran quarterback Matthew Stafford in a trade with the Detroit Lions, according to multiple reports.

The Rams immediately become a top 3 favorite to win it all in 2021-22 at DraftKings Sportsbook. Next year’s Super Bowl will be played in the Rams’ new home, SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.

Rams, Lions odds go in opposite directions

Detroit and the Rams were already on opposite ends of the Super Bowl LVI odds table at DraftKings Sportsbook, with the Lions +7500 (third highest) and the Rams +2000 on Jan. 27.

The Lions, who will receive QB Jared Goff in the trade, are now tied with the Houston Texans for having the highest odds to win it all next year at +10000 at DK.

Conversely, the Rams are now +1100 at DraftKings – giving them the third lowest odds (tied with the Bucs). Only the Kansas City Chiefs (+575) and Green Bay Packers (+900) have lower 2021-22 odds. The Rams leapfrogged the New Orleans Saints (+1700), San Francisco 49ers (+1400), Baltimore Ravens (+1200) and Buffalo Bills (+1200) thanks to their pending acquisition of Stafford.

An MVP looming for Stafford?

MVP futures for next season are not yet posted at major US sportsbooks, but expect Stafford to be a top 10 favorite to win the award now that he will have Sean McVay guiding him.

Stafford was around +4400 to win MVP at FanDuel Sportsbook last summer. By comparison, 2020 favorites like Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson and Russell Wilson had odds ranging from +380 to +600.

Stafford was listed by ESPN.com last August as the “top longshot” to win the 2020 NFL MVP award. He finished the 2020 regular season 12th in the league in passing yards (4,084) and 12th in passing TDs (26), never truly entering the MVP conversation due to the Lions overall futility.
