Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+550)

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been at or near the top of the odds board on legal sports betting sites for the entire season. As the reigning Super Bowl champions, they haven’t done too much to show they’re not capable of running it back.

Tom Brady is not new to being a Super Bowl favorite and with the way he’s been playing this year, the Buccaneers are well-deserving of the label as Super Bowl favorites. Brady leads the NFL in passing yards, passing touchdowns, passing attempts, completions and is second in QBR.

Unsurprisingly, Tampa Bay has the top-ranked scoring offense (31.4 ppg) and is second in yards per game (403.7) even with the eighth-worst rushing attack (92.6 ypg) in the NFL.

The defense isn’t too bad either, allowing the fewest rushing yards per game and are overall a top 10 defense in yards allowed.

New England Patriots (+650)

While Brady is leading the NFL in almost everything, Mac Jones is winning games with just three pass attempts and helping the New England Patriots win their seventh game in a row. Following their recent streak of wins, NFL betting sites have made the Pats the second-choice in terms of Super Bowl 56 favorites.

New England is driven by their league-leading defense that allows just 15.4 points per game and the third-fewest yards per game (310.0). Their offense isn’t all that impressive but they do rank eighth in scoring despite ranking 18th in yards per game, showing their efficiency with their limited opportunities.

New England is currently the No. 1 seed in the AFC which is bringing a potential Brady vs Bill Belichick Super Bowl closer to reality. The idea of it excites some, while disturbing others.

The Patriots enter their BYE week with the best point differential (+150) in the NFL and will close the season with games against the Indianapolis Colts, Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars and Miami Dolphins. All together this makes for the seventh-easiest remaining schedule in the league. This makes the push for the first-round BYE in the playoffs just a little bit easier.
