The 2019 NFL season schedule release revealed some intriguing trends in the latest projected NFL win totals, but it apparently hasn't changed the latest odds to win the Super Bowl very much, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who has followed professional football for the past two decades, but the New England Patriots are once again favored to win the Super Bowl at +700.
While New England lost key players like Rob Gronkowski and Trey Flowers this offseason, they've reloaded by acquiring talent like Michael Bennett, Demaryius Thomas and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. The Patriots look poised to make another run at the championship, but they have some serious competition in the AFC.
The Kansas City Chiefs (+800) look like the biggest threat to New England's throne in 2019. Considering the Chiefs were just one or two plays away from beating the Patriots last season, it's no surprise that Kansas City has the second-best odds to win the Super Bowl.
As for the NFC, the New Orleans Saints are conference favorites (+850), but the Los Angeles Rams (+900) are in hot pursuit. These teams played a classic NFC Championship game that was unfortunately marred by an egregious no-call, so this will likely be a revenge game for the Saints.
The Los Angeles Chargers are tied with the Cleveland Browns for the fifth-best odds to win Super Bowl 54 at +1400. While the Chargers have one of the best rosters in the NFL on paper, they have struggled to win big games in recent years.
Overall, these odds are likely to continue shifting as the offseason progresses, and we could see a massive shake-up after the 2019 NFL Draft. But as things currently stand, the New England Patriots are once again favored to take home the Lombardi Trophy.
