The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are the early Super Bowl darlings. NFL bettors on DraftKings Sportsbook have put nearly one-fourth of all money down on Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
And that’s the most likely explanation for this surge in bets on Tampa Bay. Brady is bringing serious juice down south despite the fact that he’s on the wrong side of 40. And Brady isn’t the only reason for this confidence in Tampa Bay.
The Bucs are loaded at the skill positions. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin will be the best pair of receivers Brady has thrown to since Randy Moss and Wes Welker in 2009. He’s also bringing one of his all-time favorite targets — Rob Gronkowski — to join O.J. Howard on the tight end unit. Add in the fact that Bruce Arians is one of the best offensive minds in the sport and it’s easy to be pumped about Tampa Bay’s chances.
In addition to all the excitement surrounding Brady’s arrival and the offense in general, the Bucs have great odds at +1400. Sure, the defense was shaky at times last season, but it improved as the season went on and there going to be far fewer turnovers with Brady under center as opposed to Jameis Winston.

It should come as no surprise that the Kansas City Chiefs (+600) and Baltimore Ravens (+650), the two favorites to win the Super Bowl, are in second and third in terms of total cash. The Chiefs and Ravens both have young MVP quarterbacks leading the charge.
The biggest underdog to land in the top 10 of total handle is the Pittsburgh Steelers (+2500). Pittsburgh narrowly missed the playoffs in 2019 without Ben Roethlisberger. It looks like bettors think his return will give the Steelers a massive boost in 2020.
