  • The Patriots haven’t been worse than +500 odds during the season and their longest odds were +600 back in January of 2017.
  • The Vikings were +4000 longshots back in early October but the market was forced to drop odds after their hot start. They’d likely be behind Philadelphia if not for Carson Wentz’s injury.
  • The Steelers’ odds have been ridiculously steady over the last three months, with their odds never moving out of the +350 to +450 range.
  • The Titans (100/1) and Bills (100/1) are complete longshots while the other ten teams have 25/1 or better odds to win the Super Bowl.

Here’s a look at each team’s longest odds during the year at William Hill’s Nevada sportsbooks:

It’s always fun to know what some of the big potential payouts are, and David Purdum has that great info from William Hill’s US sportsbooks:
