The Super Bowl LV odds continue to shift as we have now completed 10 weeks of the 2020 regular season. While there have been some surprising teams near the top of the standings, it's no shock to see the Kansas City Chiefs among the NFL's elite — and they are the current betting favorites to win the Super Bowl.
But who else are oddsmakers liking to possibly lift the Lombardi Trophy? Here are the updated odds to win the NFL Super Bowl, as of November 17.
Who Is The Favorite To Win Super Bowl LV?
The defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs are, not surprisingly, the top dogs at +350. KC took their first L of the season in Week 5, 40-32 to the Las Vegas Raiders, but bounced back by beating the Bills, then absolutely drubbing the Broncos and Jets, before a narrow victory over the Panthers in Week 9.
Usurping the Baltimore Ravens for second place (+550) are the still-undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers, who toppled Baltimore 28-24 in a highly-touted Week 8 matchup. Pittsburgh's D has been stellar this season, with Ben Roethlisberger quietly mounting momentum as a dark-horse MVP candidate.
Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are next up (+650) after they completely dismantled the formerly-third Tampa Bay Buccaneers 38-3 on Week 9's Sunday Night Football. They followed that up with a decisive win against the battered reigning NFC champs, the San Francisco 49ers.
And tied with the Packers at +900 are the aforementioned Buccaneers, who saw their odds dip after their demoralizing loss to the Saints, but rebounded to crush the Panthers in Week 10.

Understanding NFL Futures Odds
Sportsbooks release NFL futures odds pretty much as soon the confetti is falling to mark the end of the previous football season. There are many ways to wager on NFL futures, but picking the outright winner of the Super Bowl is definitely the most popular. During the offseason and preseason, you'll be able to get a nice plus-money price on basically any team in the NFL as there is so much uncertainty around what will happen next year.
Super Bowl Futures odds will usually look like this:
- Kansas City Chiefs +325
This means that on a $100 bet, you'll stand to win $325 should Mahomes & Co. pull off the repeat. If it's close to the end of the season and there has been one very dominant team, you might see them with a minus sign (-) ahead of their odds.
- Baltimore Ravens -110
This means that if you wagered on Baltimore at that price, you would need to bet $110 to profit $100 on the Ravens winning the Super Bowl.
Of course, futures odds are a fluid market. They can change every day based on news, injuries, suspensions, etc. And they will certainly change based around big NFL events, such as free agency and the draft. For example, a devastating injury to a starting quarterback on any of the top teams in the league would likely cause them to plummet down the futures odds board.
All the odds seen above are in American format. Should you find decimal format or fractional format easier to read, simply convert the odds using our simple odds converter tool.
