Throw out the regular season records, the postseason is finally upon us.

After 18 weeks of grueling NFL regular-season play, the 14-team bracket is set up to crown a Super Bowl LVI champion.

But while we wait for Wild Card weekend’s action to begin, bookmakers have wasted no time updating the current odds favorites to lift the Lombardi Trophy.

The Arizona Cardinals currently sit tied for the ninth-best odds of winning their first Super Bowl in franchise history at 21/1 (+2100), according to FanDuel.

That means if you were to place a $100 bet on the Cardinals to win Super Bowl LVI, you would receive a whopping $2,100 on that wager.

So it’s safe to say that the oddsmakers don’t love Arizona’s chances of winning two games in a month’s time at SoFi Stadium.

BetOnline.ag has the Cardinals at just slightly worse odds to win it all at 22/1, which is also the longest odds Arizona has seen from the sportsbook since it was at 25/1 following Week 3’s 31-19 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The Cardinals came into the 2021 season at 40/1 and were as high as 15/2 (+750) after Week 9’s 31-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers and Week 13’s 33-22 win over the Chicago Bears.

Of the 14 playoff teams, only the Cincinnati Bengals (125/1), Philadelphia Eagles (100/1) and Las Vegas Raiders (80/1) had longer odds as of Sept. 8.

Now the only teams behind the Cardinals are the Raiders (40/1), Eagles (66/1) and Pittsburgh Steelers (80/1).

Here are the full odds for teams to Super Bowl LVI, according to DraftKings:

1. Green Bay Packers — 19/5 (+380)

2. Kansas City Chiefs — 9/2 (+450)

3. Buffalo Bills — 15/2 (+750)

4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers — 8/1 (+800)

5. Tennessee Titans — 17/2 (+850)

6. Los Angeles Rams — 10/1 (+1000)

7. Dallas Cowboys — 12/1 (+1200)

8. Cincinnati Bengals — 16/1 (+1600)

9. San Francisco 49ers — 20/1 (+2000)

10. New England Patriots — 22/1 (+2200)

11. Arizona Cardinals — 25/1 (+2500)

T-12. Las Vegas Raiders — 60/1 (+6000)

T-12. Philadelphia Eagles — 60/1 (+6000)

14. Pittsburgh Steelers — 90/1 (+9000)
