The Bills opened as +750 co-favorites with the Kansa City Chiefs to win Super Bowl LVII with the defending champions Rams chasing them at +1100 and the Cincinnati Bengals and Dallas Cowboys next at +1200 odds. But after the free agency movement and the 2022 NFL Draft, the odds boards were shaken up.
Kansas City fell to +900, Dallas dropped to +1600, Cincinnati went to +2000, Tennessee faded from +2200 to +3000, and the Seattle Seahawks plummeted to +15000 from +4000. Meanwhile, the Miami Dolphins went from +5000 to +3000, the Chargers from +2500 to +1600, and the Packers from +1600 to +1200. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers went from +2500 to +750, the second shortest current Super Bowl odds.
Buffalo too, saw their odds shorten despite already having the shortest opening odds. The Bills have gone from +750 to a current +650 at BetMGM, Caesars Sportsbook, and the BetOnline App. Buffalo is even listed at a shorter +600 odds via the DK Sportsbook and Unibet. Their longest odds are at +700 at PointsBet USA where they are tied with the Bucs for the top spot.
