2024-2025 NFL odds: 12 quarterbacks make up the Super Bowl QB bubble

Published Jun. 21, 2024 9:48 a.m. ET

On Thursday's edition of "The Herd," Colin Cowherd was in his quarterback bag.

Cowherd revealed the 12 quarterbacks he believes are in the 2024-2025 Super Bowl bubble, suggesting that there are only two ways to win a Super Bowl. 

"Have Mahomes, Stafford, Brady, Peyton Manning, a next-level superstar, like a really elite all-time guy, or have a talented guy on a rookie contract." 

With that, he divided the 12 QBs into two tiers: superstars and talented QBs on cheaper deals. 


"The upper echelon guys, who are really all-time elite arm talent … those teams are in the Super Bowl bubble," he said.

Let's take a look at his superstar tier.  


Josh Allen
Bills Super Bowl odds: +1200

Joe Burrow
Bengals Super Bowl odds: +1300

Lamar Jackson
Ravens Super Bowl odds: +950

Patrick Mahomes
Chiefs Super Bowl odds: 550

Aaron Rodgers
Jets Super Bowl odds: +2000

Matthew Stafford
Rams Super Bowl Odds: +3000 

Can NFL teams that award their QBs massive contracts win a Super Bowl?

Now, Cowherd's talented QBs on cheaper deals tier. 


Justin Herbert
Chargers Super Bowl odds: +3500

Jalen Hurts
Eagles Super Bowl odds: +1700

Trevor Lawrence
Jaguars Super Bowl odds: +4500

Jordan Love
Packers Super Bowl odds: +1900

Brock Purdy
49ers Super Bowl odds: +600

C.J. Stroud
Texans Super Bowl odds: +1600

Said Cowherd of his second tier, "The other six are very good quarterbacks, and they are not getting paid yet. … I think Purdy is the least-talented, but he's talented enough, and he's not making a nickel." 

Cowherd also addressed a number of quarterbacks that aren't on the list.

"Jared Goff, who I think is really good, but not in the top six and really, really expensive. … If you pay Tua the bag, or pay Dak the bag, you are immediately eliminated if you look at the last 12 years. … If you pay them, it will avoid chaos, but you are out of the Super Bowl conversation."
