Las Vegas sportsbooks predict Bucs vs. Bills Super Bowl
Updated July 14, 2022
Things have been changing over in Sin City, as the NFL season keeps inching closer and closer. Who will win the AFC and the NFC this upcoming season and move on to play for the title? As things stand, the Las Vegas sportsbooks predict Bucs vs. Bills Super Bowl, which comes as a bit of a surprise. Previously, things looked like maybe it would be Buffalo vs. Green Bay.
However, this incredibly busy offseason has really changed things for so many different teams out there. With the Bills, the team adding Von Miller only strengthened their Super Bowl odds. With Josh Allen all set with his contract too, there’s not going to be any kind of drama or speculation with him trying to hold out or anything. What a luxury that is.
For the Packers, what has really hurt them is the loss of one of the more electric players out there: Davante Adams. Adams is a bonafide superstar and he was Aaron Rodgers’ favorite target. With that said, Green Bay decided to trade him to the Las Vegas Raiders in exchange for draft capital. This move made sense, as Adams wasn’t expected to sign a long-term deal.
With that, Green Bay’s NFL odds of course went down, which now has the Bucs as the favorites to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. With the Bucs, they are loaded on both sides of the ball. And with this looking like Brady’s last season in the NFL, the script could be written for him to end his career with a total bang. Will that get done? That remains to be seen, but things will be interesting this year.
Tom Brady’s NFL return has really changed things
The thing that has really flipped the script is no question the following: Tom Brady’s NFL return has really changed things. Once Brady announced that he was coming out of retirement, it really had people in the NFC circles talking. Keep in mind that things only lasted a short time for his retirement, as Brady realized quite quickly that he wasn’t ready to hang up his cleats just yet.
That’s obviously good news for the Bucs, but they’re of course going to be with a new head coach, as Bruce Arians decided to step down from his position. Despite there being a change at the top, the Bucs still are the favorites to win the NFC this year. If they get that job done, it would result in their second trip to the Super Bowl in the past three seasons.
Brady of course is going to play a big role in that. From the moment he took to Twitter to announce that he’s going to be playing this season, people all over Las Vegas have been betting on Tampa Bay to make a splash and win the Super Bowl. Brady is no stranger to that success, as he has seven rings to his name. Now, he’s got his eyes set on number seven.
“These past two months I’ve realized my place is still on the field and not in the stands,” Brady said on Twitter when he announced that he was coming out of retirement to play again. “That time will come. But it’s not now. I love my teammates, and I love my supportive family. They make it all possible. I’m coming back for my 23rd season in Tampa. Unfinished business.”
How likely is a Bucs vs. Bills Super Bowl this year?
Leading up to Week 1, everyone is wondering how likely is a Bucs vs. Bills Super Bowl this year? As things stand, the Las Vegas sportsbooks have put the odds of that happening at +1700. That’s indeed the No. 1 matchup for the Super Bowl, but it’s not the only game that people think could end up happening in February. Nope, there’s others to keep an eye on too.
A matchup between the Chiefs and Bucs has +2200 odds, while the Bills and Packers has been set at +2500. Early on, the majority of the Vegas bets have indeed gone on Tampa Bay and Buffalo meeting. This would result in Brady taking on Allen, which would surely be a fantastic showdown. Will that end up being the case for everyone to enjoy? We’ll find out soon enough. However, don’t be surprised if another surprise team shows up.
Keep in mind that the Los Angeles Rams won the Super Bowl last year and virtually no one gave them a chance to come out on top. The Denver Broncos struggled last year, but they made a monster splash this offseason in landing quarterback Russell Wilson from the Seattle Seahawks. That move has completely changed things for the franchise. Obviously, the Chiefs are a threat too.
Patrick Mahomes is one of the best quarterbacks in the game, and there’s no denying that. While the loss of Tyreek Hill will lose this team, the addition of JuJu Smith-Schuster sure is great to see. We wouldn’t be surprised at all if Kansas City makes it to the Super Bowl.
