The Super Bowl is wide open with this year’s expanded format, but futures bets are still coming in on the usual suspects. With the NFL moving to seven teams in the playoffs for each conference, securing the No. 1 seed and a bye is all the more important. However, the public is not so high on the current No. 1 seeds in the AFC and NFC.

Latest Public Money On Super Bowl 55 Winner
The Pittsburgh Steelers (9-0) are the last undefeated team in the NFL and are sitting at +550 odds to win it all. Despite their dominant season so far, public bettors at DraftKings Sportsbook are putting more money down on the Kansas City Chiefs (8-1), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3), and Baltimore Ravens (6-3). It’s worth noting that the Steelers beat the Ravens a few weeks ago and they will have a rematch on Thanksgiving.
The Green Bay Packers (7-2) are first in the NFC and maintain a firm grip on the NFC South, but they account for just 3% of all futures tickets and 5% of the total handle to win the Super Bowl. This is understandable given how close the NFC is this year. There are five teams vying for the No. 1 seed and the bye in that conference.
The Chiefs are the odds-on favorite to win the Super Bowl and the public is backing them hard. They are bringing in 30% of all bets and 21% of the total handle right now. The New England Patriots were the last team to repeat as Super Bowl Champions when they did it in 2004 and 2005.
Ironically enough, those Pats teams were led by Tom Brady, who is still playing at a high level for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Tampa Bay is currently accounting for 10% of total bets and 14% of the total handle.
