- The Buffalo Bills have (+500) odds to win Super Bowl 56.
- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+500) are tied with the shortest-odds in the NFL.
- The Arizona Cardinals are the fourth betting choice at (+800) despite being the only unbeaten team.
LOS ANGELES – The Buffalo Bills are now tied with the shortest odds of any team in the NFL to win the Super Bowl. If the odds are correct, it would be the Bills’ first Super Bowl in franchise history.
The Buffalo Bills currently have a 4-2 record but are probably one of the most impressive 4-2 teams in recent memory. Legal sports betting sites have made the Bills co-favorites, along with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, to be Super Bowl LVI champions.
Super Bowl 56 Odds
- Buffalo Bills +500
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +500
- Los Angeles Rams +750
- Arizona Cardinals +800
- Green Bay Packers +1000
- Dallas Cowboys +1100
- Baltimore Ravens +1200
- Kansas City Chiefs +1200
- Tennessee Titans +1600
- Los Angeles Chargers +2000
- Cleveland Browns +2500
Buffalo has the second-best scoring offense with a 33.8-point per game average as well as the best scoring defense that’s allowing just 16.3 points per game. However, the team hasn’t played the most elite competition.
Pittsburgh, Miami, Washington, Houston, Kansas City and Tennessee aren’t the best the NFL has to offer, but considering their second-easiest remaining strength of schedule, the Bills should be able to easily win their division and push for that first-round bye in the playoffs.
Tampa Bay is a hard team to count out as the reigning Super Bowl champions who returned all 22 starters from the championship team. Plus, the Buccaneers’ +12.3 average margin of victory hasn’t given any real concerns as to their chances to repeat as champions.
Those betting on the NFL can find Tampa Bay with the same odds as Buffalo as the NFC’s most likely representative in Super Bowl 56. Tom Brady has had 19 seasons as a starting quarterback in the NFL, not counting the 2008 injury season, and has won seven Super Bowls.
Winning a championship in 36.8% of his seasons, he’s performing well above the (+500) implied odds of 16.7% of winning his eighth ring.
Based on value alone, both the Bills and Buccaneers likely have betting value.
Are The Cardinals (+800) Being Disrespected?
The Arizona Cardinals are the last unbeaten team in the NFL and yet are barely cracking the top five in Super Bowl odds. The Cardinals offense is scoring 32.1 points per game, fourth-most in the NFL, and their defense is allowing just 16.3 points, tied with Buffalo for the fewest in the league.
Arizona already has quality wins over the Titans, Rams and Browns and will have more opportunities to prove themselves in games against the Packers, Rams and Cowboys before the season ends. It’s unlikely that they’ll finish the season undefeated, but earning the first-round bye is well within the realm of possibility.
Given the (+800) odds, it’s tough to find a reason against betting on them, even if it’s just a minor play as the Cardinal’s odds will only get shorter as they continue to win.
