Odds to Win Super Bowl 55: Buccaneers Surge Up the Oddsboard After Brady News

The new NFL league year is only three days old, but the landscape of the league has already significantly shifted.

At BetOnline, the Kansas City Chiefs remain the +650 favorites to win Super Bowl 55, followed by the Baltimore Ravens (+800), San Francisco 49ers (+1000), New Orleans Saints (+1600), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+1800), Philadelphia Eagles (+2200), New England Patriots (+2500), Seattle Seahawks (+2500), Buffalo Bills (+2800) and Dallas Cowboys (+2800).

Brady is Heading to Tampa Bay

On March 17, Tom Brady announced he would not be returning to the Patriots and would play for another team in 2020. As a result, New England’s chances to hoist the Lombardi Trophy next year moved all the way from +1200 to +2500. It’s a stunning turn of events, to say the least.

Later that day, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Brady was expected to sign with the Buccaneers, sliding into an offense that already featured star wide receivers Mike Evans and Chris Godwin along with running back Ronald Jones and athletic tight end O.J. Howard. Brady officially signed a two-year deal with the Bucs on March 20.

After the news broke, the sportsbook moved Tampa Bay’s Super Bowl odds all the way to +1800 – the lowest the Bucs have been on the Super Bowl oddsboard since 2003.

Schefter also reported that Brady’s decision to go to Tampa has resulted in a stream of phone calls to the Bucs from free agents indicating their interest in joining the team and playing with Brady, so don’t be surprised if the Buccaneers load up on more UFAs as they prepare to make a charge in the NFC South.

Hopkins, Diggs are on the Move

The opening day of the legal tampering period was a busy one, with free agents getting snatched up left and right. The biggest news of the day was via trade, however, as star wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins was dealt by the Houston Texans to the Arizona Cardinals for running back David Johnson.

The Texans also acquired a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 fourth-rounder, while the Cards received a 2020 fourth-round selection from Houston. In light of the blockbuster trade, Houston’s Super Bowl odds fell from +3000 to +5000. Arizona’s improved from +8000 to +5000.

Elsewhere, the Buffalo Bills traded with the Minnesota Vikings for stud wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Going to Minnesota is a first-round pick in 2020 (20th overall), along with a fifth- and a sixth-rounder in 2020 and a fourth-round pick in 2021. It’s a steep price to pay for the Bills, but Josh Allen has a clear-cut No. 1 target now, and the AFC East looks wide open in light of the Brady news.

Eagles Acquire Slay From Lions

A divorce between the Detroit Lions and star cornerback Darius Slay has been brewing for a while, and the Lions decided to send the 29-year-old to the Eagles in exchange for a third-round pick and a fifth-round pick in the upcoming draft. After the deal, the Eagles and Slay reached an agreement on a three-year, $50-million extension that includes $30 million guaranteed.

Philly’s secondary was an issue all year long in 2019 and the defense was in dire need of a boost, so adding one of the top corners in the game will be a massive help for the Eagles. In light of the trade, the Eagles’ Super Bowl odds improved from +2500 to +2200.

Slay had a down year last season, but the Lions struggled across the board on both sides of the ball, so Eagles fans shouldn’t be worried about a regression from the Mississippi State product.

Odds as of March 20 at BetOnline

When it comes to betting on the NFL, odds are available before teams take their first regular-season snaps. You can even bet on a potential Super Bowl winner in August. Certain squads will always be contenders, especially if they won the previous year. When bookmakers set the lines, they look at offseason roster moves, coaching changes and past on-field performance. To bet on the odds for the Super Bowl, you’d make a futures bet.

What is a Futures Bet for NFL?

This is a bet in which you would look at the odds for the Super Bowl, weeks or sometimes months in advance of the big game, and decide which team you think will win. Let’s say you want to make a futures bet today. At your sportsbook of choice, the odds would look something like this:

  • New England Patriots +240
  • New Orleans Saints +550
  • Green Bay Packers +900
  • Kansas City Chiefs +950
  • San Francisco 49ers +1000

If this were a moneyline bet, you’d be able to see which team is the clear favorite because it would have a minus sign beside its odds (-). For futures, the team with the lowest odds is favored to win the Super Bowl and the rest are underdogs.

Let’s say you feel strongly about the Saints and believe they’re going to win it all. If you were to bet $100 on them and they did triumph, you’d get a payout of $650 – your original $100 is returned along with your winnings of $550. Our Odds Calculator will show you how much you’d win based on the odds and amount bet.

The odds change throughout the season as key players get injured, trades happen and coaches get fired. Line movements for NFL futures happen weekly, so if you see odds you like, it’s best to bet on them ASAP. The Packers may be +900 to win the Super Bowl in October but after a surge in November their odds could jump to +400 and you’ll make less money than you would if you’d bet them at +900.
