The latest odds to win the Super Bowl have held steady at the very top, with the New England Patriots remaining the overall favorite to win the Lombardi Trophy. With the Patriots at +250 odds, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, the New Orleans Saints (+500) and San Francisco 49ers (+850) both gained some ground coming off wins in Week 8.

On the complete opposite end of the spectrum, the Miami Dolphins' odds to win the Super Bowl plummeted to a record low for the 2019 NFL season.

Dolphins Odds to Win Super Bowl

While the Dolphins have been more competitive in their recent games, Miami's 0-7 record hasn't earned them any credit with the oddsmakers. It may seem hard to believe, as we head into Week 9, but the Dolphins actually opened the offseason with better Super Bowl odds (+10000) than the Arizona Cardinals (+15000) did, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

Miami's odds to win Super Bowl LIV had fallen to +200000 ahead of Week 8, and the Dolphins dropped to a season-low +500000 odds after losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 9 on "Monday Night Football."

Odds to Win Super Bowl 2020

Sporting the top-scoring offense and defense in the league, the Patriots have rarely looked challenged this season, so seeing them with +250 odds lines up with their dominance. They sit at a league-best 8-0, and have outscored their opponents by an average of 23.7 points per game (PPG) thus far.

The Saints are the current favorite to win the NFC, with +250 odds to represent that conference in the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, and the team's +500 odds to win the Lombardi Trophy have steadily improved in season. In Week 8, New Orleans also saw the return of veteran quarterback Drew Brees, and his presence was felt immediately. He threw for three touchdowns in the 31-9 win over the Cardinals.

Sitting at 7-0, San Francisco remains the only unbeaten team in the NFC though. The 49ers, and their +850 odds, are coming off a 51-13 dismantling of the Carolina Panthers in Week 8. Much like New England, San Francisco's defense anchors this year's team, holding opponents to an average of 158.9 passing yards per game.

Rounding out the top 5 by the odds are the Green Bay Packers (+1000) and Kansas City Chiefs (+1200). With such a close race in the odds to win the Super Bowl, the second half of the NFL season should be an exciting one to watch.
