Bettors still love the Buccaneers
After big wins over the Packers and Raiders, the Buccaneers remain second in the league in terms of the handle and percentage of bets. Ahead of their Week 8 Monday Night Football matchup with the struggling New York Giants, the Tom Brady-led squad is responsible for 14% of the handle as well as 10% of the bets. Most recently, the Buccaneers easily handled the mediocre Las Vegas Raiders with a 45-20 victory on the road. While Brady torched Vegas with 369 yards and four scored through the air, wideout Scotty Miller led the way in the receiving department with 109 yards and one touchdown.
Chiefs remain in the lead
After a big 43-16 win on the road over the division-rival Denver Broncos, the Chiefs possess the highest odds to win the Super Bowl and are responsible for 21% of the handle and 31% of bets, per DraftKings Sportsbook. Simply speaking, the Chiefs are loaded with talent and should reach a deep part of the postseason, if not earn their second consecutive Super Bowl title.
In their Week 7 victory, superstar quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for 200 yards and one touchdown while rookie running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire rushed for 46 yards and one score on eight carries.
Ravens still a popular betting pick
Despite sitting as a wild card team ahead of their crucial matchup with the undefeated Steelers, the Ravens are in the No. 3 spot on the above list, with 8% of the handle and 12% of the bets going towards them. Coming off their bye week, the Ravens should be well-rested and will likely put up a great fight against their division rivals, despite the fact that the Steelers sit as the best team in the league. Per DraftKings Sportsbook, the Ravens are actually favored by four points at home.
