A first-round exit from the postseason may have left a sour taste in the mouths of Buffalo Bills' fans last season, but it's hard not to be encouraged by their 10-6 regular season record.

Bills Super Bowl Odds 2020

This offseason has already brought plenty of big changes, and the Bills' odds to win the Super Bowl have been on the rise. They now have the 11th-best odds to win it all, at +2200, on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The biggest splash of the Bills' offseason, of course, was their blockbuster trade for former Minnesota Vikings wideout Stefon Diggs. The Bills were priced at +3300 to win the Super Bowl, but the day after the trade (March 17) they were up to +2700.

The Bills have also benefited from the fact that Tom Brady is now out of the AFC East, making their path to playoffs (and even a potential first-round bye) that much easier, and they jumped from +2700 to +2200 by Thursday (March 19) morning.

The offseason hasn't all been roses, as the Bills did lose a top edge defender in Shaq Lawson, but if there's anywhere they could afford to lose some firepower it was on defense, after allowing the NFL's second-fewest points in 2019.

Of course, we will continue to see the odds fluctuate heavily as we progress through the offseason, but this big spike has to feel great for Bills fans, who are hungry for the first Super Bowl in franchise history.
