Bettors Seeing Value in Buffalo Bills Super Bowl Odds With Mahomes’ Injuries

There are just three games left in this NFL season, as we have reached the conference championships. The AFC and NFC Championship will take place this upcoming weekend, as the two champions of each conference will be crowned and given a spot to compete for the Lombardi Trophy. This also means there are only four teams remaining in the Super Bowl futures market. You can wager on each of the four teams to win the Super Bowl at various books, and there still is plenty of value depending on which legal sportsbook you are wagering at. Let’s take a look.

After a tremendous Divisional Round, there are just four teams left. The Kansas City Chiefs, Green Bay Packers, Buffalo Bills, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain as the four battling for a Super Bowl title. While the Chiefs are the favorites, Patrick Mahomes’ status is in doubt after a concussion, and both games have a spread of less than a touchdown. Let’s take a look at the updated Super Bowl odds for each team as we head into Championship Sunday.

 

Updated Super Bowl 55 Odds

When the market continues to get smaller and smaller from a futures perspective, there are many reasons to wager. One is certainly to find value on a team with only two wins remaining to clinch a bet, but the other is for those holding long-standing futures tickets. For example, a bettor may be holding a 23:1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers ticket and are looking to hedge. No matter the reason, the key is to find the best possible price. For example, if you are wagering on the Kansas City Chiefs to win the Super Bowl, you can get +210 at PointsBet or BetMGM, compared to +200 at DraftKings. +210 of course has a higher payout, so you would want to be sure to place your money with the highest rate of return should you decide to wager.

 

Kansas City Chiefs the Super Bowl 55 Betting Favorite

The Kansas City Chiefs are heading to their third straight AFC Championship game on the backs of Andy Reid, and they are still the betting favorite to win the Super Bowl at +200 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Now, the only “problem” is that Patrick Mahomes sustained a likely concussion in the Divisional Round, and his status for the AFC Championship is suddenly in doubt. While he may play, it is not guaranteed and that is built into the Chiefs’ line. Sure, the Chiefs are the best team in the NFL when healthy, but will they be on Sunday? Time will tell, but the Chiefs are early favorites against Buffalo.

Green Bay Packers +220 to win the Super Bowl

While the Chiefs are the betting favorites, the Green Bay Packers could be the most complete team remaining in the NFL playoffs. Green Bay has one of the most efficient offenses in the history of the league, and a defense that played incredibly well against the Rams this past weekend. Last week, the Packers’ odds were +375 to win the Super Bowl and they have come down to +220 on DraftKings Sportsbook. Aaron Rodgers finally gets to play a NFC Championship game at home in Lambeau, and it will be a legendary matchup between him and Tampa Bay Bucs QB Tom Brady as two future Hall of Famers battle it out.

Buffalo Bills Continue to Climb at +325 to win Super Bowl 55

How about those Buffalo Bills? Buffalo defeated the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round and saw their odds to win the Super Bowl get cut in half as they moved from +650 to +325. If Patrick Mahomes does not play for the Chiefs, the Bills will certainly be the favorites to represent the AFC in Super Bowl 55. With rumors swirling of offensive coordinator Brian Daboll potentially leaving to be a head coach, the Bills being in over their heads, and many other things surrounding the AFC Championship, one thing is for sure…Josh Allen is playing at a high level and is ready to take the Bills to the next step. Buffalo is a small underdog as of Monday morning, but keep an eye on Mahomes’ status. At +325 (or better), this is likely the best value remaining on the board in the Super Bowl futures market.

Tom Brady and the Bucs a Longshot? Tampa Bay is +450 to win Super Bowl

How often have you heard the words “Tom Brady” and “underdog”? Not often, but this is the second straight week these terms join each other. The Bucs have the longest odds to win the Super Bowl at +450 as they have to go on the road in Lambeau to take down the mighty Green Bay Packers. Brady looked very sharp in the Divisional Round against the Saints, and he will have to put together another masterful performance to oust the Packers this coming weekend. While the Bucs are certainly underdogs to win the NFC Championship (and the Super Bowl), how often can you get these odds with Tom Brady?
