The Buffalo Bills added some talent in the 2018 NFL Draft but remain major longshots in the betting odds when it comes to winning the Super Bowl.
Betting on the Buffalo Bills to win the Super Bowl may be an annual practice for some diehard fans. For others, it may be seen as a foolish bet.
The Bills are entering yet another season with low expectations in the national sense, even after reaching the playoffs. That is reflected in the post-draft betting odds, courtesy of OddsShark.
The Bills are tied with the Browns, Dolphins, Bears, Bengals and Jets with +10000 odds to win it all in 2019. To explain that, a $1 bet would bring back $100 in return. So it is not exactly a bad bet if you don’t put too much down.
I am not saying it is impossible for the Bills to win next year’s Super Bowl. We saw the Jacksonville Jaguars make a great run at winning the AFC, which came after a tight 10-3 victory over the Bills in the opening round of the playoffs.
Making it to the playoffs is the key first step and the Bills still have that pesky problem of being in the same division as Tom Brady. However, the Dolphins and Jets aren’t exactly powerhouse teams, meaning the Bills could pick up some easy victories over the lesser divisional opponents in 2018. Three or four against the Jets and Dolphins along with splitting the season series against the Patriots could mean another playoff berth is in store.
The reason the Bills still have such bad odds is likely due to the fact the team took Josh Allen, but also have AJ McCarron on the roster. A team can’t be projected to do great things when there is a question at the quarterback position. But if one of the two lights it up to start the year, the odds will improve.
As with all things surrounding the Bills in 2018, the conversation always goes back to the quarterback position. Once that is settled, perhaps some bold fans will place some bets.
