Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have (+500) odds as the current Super Bowl 56 favorites.
  • The Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs both have a (+700) betting line.
  • The undefeated Arizona Cardinals are at (+850) as the fifth option on the board.

TAMPA, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the betting favorites to win the Super Bowl this season, but a handful of teams are close behind on the odds board.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers As The Favorites

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the shortest odds of any team on legal betting sites to win Super Bowl 56. Tampa Bay and the Kansas City Chiefs have been the two favorites for the majority of the season, but the Chiefs have since fallen off of the board.

Super Bowl 56 Winner

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500
  • Buffalo Bills +700
  • Kansas City Chiefs +700
  • Los Angeles Rams +800
  • Arizona Cardinals +850
  • Green Bay Packers +900
  • Baltimore Ravens +1000
  • Dallas Cowboys +1200

If the odds are correct and the Buccaneers go on to win the Super Bowl, Tom Brady would extend his lead over every NFL franchise in Super Bowl rings. Tampa has the sixth-easiest remaining strength of schedule in the NFL, so it’s unlikely their odds get much shorter prior to the postseason.

Buffalo Bills Or Kansas City Chiefs As The Second Option?

While the odds may be even with one another, there is not much of a debate on who is currently the better team. The Buffalo Bills have a head-to-head win, a better record, and an easier path to a division championship and therefore, the playoffs.

Aside from what’s already happened, the future favors the Bills as well. Buffalo has the single easiest remaining schedule in football with a current opponent record of 23-39 while the Chiefs have the second-toughest remaining strength of schedule with an opponent record of 40-26.

With both teams at (+700), those betting on the NFL should likely side with Buffalo, especially with their No. 1 ranked scoring defense and No. 2 ranked scoring offense.

Is Arizona Being Undervalued?

The Arizona Cardinals are the only remaining undefeated team in the NFL and yet are pegged as the fifth choice on legal sportsbooks to win the Super Bowl. Their record isn’t a fluke either as they’ve had the fourth-toughest schedule up to this point.

Despite having beat the Los Angeles Rams, the Cardinals are behind them in Super Bowl odds and are the third choice in the NFC. It seems as if sportsbooks are expecting Arizona to regress, but those who believe they won’t could cash in at a decent price by wagering on them now.
