The Buffalo Bills remain the betting favorites on Super Bowl LVII odds boards despite back-to-back losses and a narrowing odds advantage.
Super Bowl LVII odds boards continued to shift as Week 10 results went final. Following another flurry of activity, sportsbooks adjusted their NFL futures wagers for the Big Game, readying for the season’s stretch run. The Buffalo Bills remained atop most boards despite losing for the second week in a row.
BetMGM’s Super Bowl LVII odds board features the Bills as frontrunners at +400. But the Kansas City Chiefs improved to +450 following their Week 10 win, and the Philadelphia Eagles stood at +500 heading into their matchup on Monday Night Football.
Bills Remain Favorites in Super Bowl LVII Odds
Buffalo found itself, once again, embroiled in a “game of the year” candidate, this time against the Minnesota Vikings. Although the Bills controlled most that game, Minnesota capitalized on critical mistakes from NFL MVP frontrunner Josh Allen and used an amazing grab from Justin Jefferson to help force overtime.
The Vikings stormed back from a 17-point deficit on the road to steal this win and see their own Super Bowl LVII odds improve.
The Bills suffered back-to-back losses in stunning fashion and seem to sleepwalk through portions of their games. These setbacks have resulted in fading Super Bowl odds and now the Bills find themselves in third place in the AFC East.
Buffalo’s schedule softens for the next two weeks, as they welcome a 3-6 Cleveland Browns team in Week 11 before traveling to Detroit to play a 3-6 Lions squad on Thanksgiving for Week 12. After that, a key stretch of three straight AFC East contests could decide the division winner over Weeks 13-15.
Best Super Bowl LVII Odds
While Buffalo seems to have stagnated, other teams have seen their Super Bowl LVII odds improve in recent weeks, the Vikings chief among them. Minnesota went from +1500 to +1200 at Caesars following their win over the Bills. Back in Week 1 of the season, the Vikings saw +4000 odds to win the Super Bowl.
The Miami Dolphins took sole possession of the AFC East following their 39-17 victory over the Cleveland Browns in Week 10. The Dolphins scored over 30 points for the third straight week and have won four in a row overall. Tua Tagovailoa continues to climb in the NFL MVP odds race after throwing for three more touchdowns. Miami’s Super Bowl LVII odds shortened to +1500 at some sportsbooks after starting the week at +2200.

Giants and Jets See Improving Odds
The New York Giants returned from their bye week to beat the Houston Texans 27-16 at home in Week 10. Saquon Barkley continued his bounce-back campaign, carrying the ball a career-high 35 times in the victory. He ran for 152 yards and a score to help the Giants improve to 7-2 on the season. This marks the team’s best start since 2008 (8-1) and the G-Men hope to make a run to the postseason for the first time since 2016.
The Jets, meanwhile, enjoyed their bye week and leapfrogged Buffalo in the standings thanks to the Bills’ loss. New York sees a favorable schedule down the stretch and should compete for a postseason berth for the first time since 2010. The Jets (6-3) have won five of their last six games and sport five conference victories at this point. If the season ended today, they would be in the playoffs.
Both of these teams have seen their Super Bowl LVII odds improve dramatically from their extreme longshot starts. Only five teams had longer Super Bowl odds (+13000) at DraftKings in Week 1. Now, the Giants and Jets both see +6000 odds to win the Big Game.
