Super Bowl Favorites 

With training camp underway, the Buffalo Bills enter as the preseason Super Bowl betting favorites at +500 on DraftKings Sportsbook and +650 at FanDuel Sportsbook. 

Tom Brady’s return to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has the team with the second-shortest odds at +750 on FanDuel, while Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs and Aaron Rodgers of the Green Bay Packers have their teams slotted in with the third-best odds at +1000 over at DraftKings. 

The defending Super Bowl champion Los Angeles Rams are +1100 to repeat both at DraftKings and FanDuel to round out the top five favorites.  

Uncertainty around Cleveland quarterback Deshaun Watson’s legal situation and standing with the league had previously kept the Browns off odds boards for much of the offseason. 

But both DraftKings and FanDuel have Super Bowl lines for Cleveland, with the Browns at +3000 on DraftKings and +2800 at FanDuel. 

Watson’s former team, the Houston Texans, has the longest odds at +30000 on FanDuel.
