The New England Patriots remain the favorites to win the Super Bowl, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but the New Orleans Saints continue to creep closer. After losing quarterback Drew Brees to a thumb injury, all the Saints did was win five straight games and Brees could return as soon as this weekend.

With those factors seemingly in the Saints' favor, it's no wonder New Orleans went from +700 to +550 odds in a week's time.

The Patriots (+250) are still the clear favorite, just like they have been throughout the 2019 NFL season. There's a tight cluster of teams between the 10-to-1 and 20-to-1 odds that includes the Kansas City Chiefs (+1000), San Francisco 49ers (+1000), Green Bay Packers (+1100), with the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys and Minnesota Vikings all at +1800.

With two of those teams on bye (Cowboys and Ravens) in Week 8, the Philadelphia Eagles (+2200), Los Angeles Rams (+2400) and Indianapolis Colts (+3000) will all have a chance to improve their odds of winning the Super Bowl with potential victories this weekend.

As always, lots can happen over the next few months, but right now everyone is still chasing Bill Belichick, Tom Brady and the Pats.
