Bet NFL with William Hill, America’s #1 sportsbook.
For the second time in franchise history, the Buccaneers are champions. They defeated the Chiefs 31-9 last night, adding a second Lombardi Trophy alongside their one from Super Bowl 37.
Tampa Bay opened at 50/1 when William Hill first released its Super Bowl 55 futures on Jan. 20, 2020. Is there another long shot that William Hill bettors are eyeing early on for Super Bowl 56 futures?
The Chiefs find themselves atop the board for Super Bowl 56 futures at +500, followed by the Packers at +850. The Buccaneers are tied for the third-lowest odds at 10/1 with the Bills and Rams. The Rams were originally listed at 18/1, however Los Angeles shifted to 10/1 after agreeing to trade for Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.
The Seahawks and Ravens are next at 12/1 apiece, with the 49ers (17/1) and Steelers (18/1) rounding out the teams that have odds lower than 20/1.
At the bottom of the board, four teams are priced at 100/1 or higher: the Texans (100/1), Bengals (100/1), Lions (125/1) and Jets (125/1). The Jets opened with the highest Super Bowl 56 odds of any team at 150/1 before a slight move to 125/1.
Based off the early Super Bowl 56 betting trends at William Hill, many bettors are expecting a recent champion to return to glory in 2022. The Buccaneers lead all teams with 13% of the total number of tickets and are second with 14% of the total dollars wagered, while the Chiefs are tops in total dollars wagered at 18% and only trail Tampa in total number of tickets with 9%.
A pair of NFC West contenders are also drawing plenty of early action in both categories. The 49ers are the only other team to reach the double-digit mark in total dollars wagered at 11%, and have also received 7% of the total number of tickets. Meanwhile, the Rams have captured 8% of the total number of tickets and 9% of the total dollars wagered.
Two long shots have snagged 4% of the total dollars wagered as of now: the Panthers (75/1) and Jets. A New Jersey bettor placed $5,000 on Jets 150/1 for a total potential payout of $755,000, which is tied for the largest Super Bowl 56 futures wager at William Hill. A Nevada bettor also put down $5,000 on Chiefs +500 for a total potential payout of $30,000.
Additionally, three noteworthy bets have come in on Carolina: $2,500 on Panthers 75/1 ($177,500 total potential payout), $1,000 on Panthers 75/1 ($76,000 total potential payout) and $1,000 on Panthers 60/1 ($61,000 total potential payout).
Meanwhile, the fewest total number of tickets and total dollars wagered both belong to one team—the Eagles. Philadelphia is currently residing at 40/1 along with the Raiders, Chargers, Vikings and Bears.
Super Bowl 56 odds are now available at William Hill as well. The AFC is a 2.5-point favorite (-140 on the moneyline) over the NFC, with the total set at 56.
