Buffalo Bills Installed as Second Favorites for Super Bowl 58
The country’s leading sportsbooks make the Buffalo Bills the second favorites to claim their first Super Bowl triumph next season.
Some sports betting sites will only go to +700 on the Bills winning Super Bowl 58, but you can find a market leading +850 at FanDuel and BetMGM.
Buffalo went into last season as the red hot favorite to win the Super Bowl after signing veteran linebacker Von Miller on a six-year, $120 million contract.
The franchise also tied wide receiver Stefon Diggs down to a $104 million extension, signed Rodger Saffold and Tim Settle, and improved their offense by adding Kaiir Elam and James Cook in the draft.
It was a team built for immediate success, but the Bills ultimately suffered a 27-10 defeat to the Bengals in the divisional round.
The Bengals went on to lose to the Chiefs, who beat the Philadelphia Eagles courtesy of a rousing comeback in the Super Bowl.
The Chiefs are the +600 favorites with DraftKings, FanDuel, BetRivers and PointsBet, but the Bills are only just behind them in the betting.
The NFL futures betting odds suggest that the Super Bowl champion will come from the AFC once again.
The San Francisco 49ers are third in the futures betting, but the Bengals are next, meaning three of the top four teams haul from the AFC.
Some heavy hitters for the Bills are set to hit free agency – Saffold, Jordan Poyer and Tremaine Edmunds – but the team should largely be kept intact, and it could be a make-or-break year.
Miller will return after tearing his ACL last year, giving the Bills a major boost as they seek to win the Super Bowl.
