NFL Odds: Patriots Still Super Bowl Favorites Despite Rough Start To Season


Given the New England Patriots’ uninspiring start to the season, some people have hopped off the bandwagon.

The oddsmakers, though, are staying put.

At 2-2 and facing a tough “Thursday Night Football” matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Patriots aren’t even leading the AFC East. But they’re still favored not just to make it to Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis, but also to take home the Lombardi Trophy, according to OddsShark.

Check out the updated odds in the tweet below:
