The NFL has just completed its Divisional Round of the Playoffs and we’re now down to the final four teams left in the postseason. In the AFC, the defending Super Bowl champs the Kansas City Chiefs will take on the Buffalo Bills at Arrowhead Stadium.

The big storyline heading into this game is the health of QB Patrick Mahomes who suffered a concussion against the Browns in their Playoff game.

In the NFC, the Green Bay Packers will host Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in a battle of two HOF quarterbacks. Rodgers is looking to win his first Super Bowl in a decade while Brady is looking to win a 7th Super Bowl championship.

Let’s huddle up to examine the latest Super Bowl LV odds and see where we should place our wager.

Super Bowl Betting Odds

Team
Kansas City Chiefs +220 +220 +210
Green Bay Packers +220 +220 +210
Buffalo Bills +275 +275 +300
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +400 +400 +375

Kansas City Chiefs (+220)

The Kansas City Chiefs started off the season as the betting favorite to win the Super Bowl as they were listed at +600 odds. From there, they were the favorite all season long and even saw their SB LV odds as low as +180 following the Wild Card Round.

Yet, after their 22 to 17 win over the Browns in the Divisional Round, the Chiefs’ odds grew to +220 to win the SB.

Even more concerning for KC and their fans is the health of star QB Patrick Mahomes. He suffered a concussion during the second half of the game and could barely stand up on his own. He was taken to the locker room and ruled out for the rest of the game.

Without Mahomes, the Chiefs have no shot at beating Buffalo. With Mahomes, the Chiefs are still the best team in the league.

Green Bay Packers (+220)

Following a two touchdown win over the Los Angeles Rams and their league leading defense, the Green Bay Packers have now become the betting favorites to win Super Bowl LV.

Aaron Rodgers and the Packers’ offense looked fantastic as they boast of one of the best offenses in the league. Furthermore, Rodgers continues to play at an MVP level which should earn him the award this year.

At the beginning of the season, Green Bay was listed at +2500 to win the Super Bowl. Following the Wild Card round, where the Packers had a first round bye, their SB odds were just +400.

After the win over the Rams, the Packers have seen their Super Bowl odds cut in half. They will have to get past the Bucs first, before having a shot to win the Championship.

Buffalo Bills (+275)

Just like the Packers, the Buffalo Bills were listed at +2500 to win the Super Bowl at the start of the 2020 regular season. They were behind the Patriots, Ravens, Colts and Chiefs in the AFC.

Buffalo would go on to sweep the Patriots during the regular season and then beat the Colts in the Wild Card Round. Following their win over Indy, Buffalo’s Super Bowl odds were listed at +550.

The Bills then hosted the red hot Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional Round and won that game 17 to 3 behind a masterful defensive performance. The team’s SB LV odds have shrunk even further down to +275.

The Bills will have a tough task ahead of them as they head out on the road to take on the defending NFL champs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+400)

Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a trendy pick at the start of the regular season to win Super Bowl 55. With the additions of Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski, along with their returning offensive weapons like Godwin and Evans, bettors and fans were really high on Tampa Bay. The Bucs were listed at +1200 to win SB LV.

Unlike the other teams on this list, Tampa Bay actually saw their SB LV odds grow bigger during the regular season when they struggled at times.

Fortunately for the Bucs, they got things on track and entered the Playoffs as one of the hottest teams in the NFC. At that point, they were listed at +1000 to win the Super Bowl.

Following their Wild Card win over the WFT, Tampa Bay saw their odds improve to +750 to win SB 55. Now, after dispatching the Saints in the Divisional Round, Brady and the Bucs are listed at +400 to win the Super Bowl.

It’s rather surprising to see the Bucs as the longshot of the four remaining teams to win the Super Bowl considering they have The Goat leading an explosive offense that continues to improve no matter who they face.

Like all season long, there’s plenty of value with the Buccaneers.

Who Will Win Super Bowl LV?

Unless he doesn’t play in the AFC Championship game, you have to go with Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs to win SB LV.

They have been the best team all season long. Furthermore, they already beat the Bills and the Bucs during the regular season.

All early reports indicate that Mahomes will play on Sunday against the Bills. So, until someone actually beats the Chiefs, you have to continue to ride the sport’s top star in Patrick Mahomes and the defending Super Bowl champs.

This is the most explosive offense in the NFL and not even the Packers or Bills will outscore them. Lastly, jump on the Chiefs at +220 odds as their line will drop considerably after the AFC Championship game.
