In order to be the best, you have to beat the best. And that's exactly what the New England Patriots continue to be, even according to oddsmakers.

The defending Super Bowl champion Patriots remain the favorites to win Super Bowl 54, with +700 odds to repeat, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Behind the Pats are the Kansas City Chiefs (+800), New Orleans Saints (+850) and Los Angeles Rams (+900) as the only four teams with 10-to-1 odds or less to take home the Lombardi Trophy. These four teams were the final four left last season, so it's no wonder they have the best odds to win in 2019.

However, there are a bunch of teams with 15-to-1 odds or worse that could be considered dark horses to win the Super Bowl. Those include the Indianapolis Colts (+1500), Philadelphia Eagles (+1500) and a trio of teams at +1600 – the Cleveland Browns, Los Angles Chargers and Chicago Bears.

While the longer shots obviously have a chance to win the Super Bowl, we'll have to wait and see what they can do on the field before making any assumptions. And, thankfully, we're only a few short months away from the kickoff of the 2019 NFL season when we'll be able to do that.
