Tom Brady’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain the biggest Super Bowl underdogs

NFL: NFC Wild Card Round-Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Football Team

Tom Brady has three times as many Super Bowl titles as the three other quarterbacks combined entering conference championship weekend, but the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remain the longest shot to win Super Bowl LV.

The Bucs are being offered at +425 by PointsBet to be crowned champions. The Green Bay Packers, who will host Tampa Bay on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game, are being offered at +210.

Also at +210 are the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs, who will host the AFC Championship Game against the Buffalo Bills (+325).

Bills quarterback Josh Allen has won the first two playoff games of his career this postseason but will be playing in his first conference championship game. The Chiefs are hopeful that quarterback Patrick Mahomes, who was knocked out of the win over Cleveland with a concussion, will be cleared to face the Bills.

The Chiefs are being backed by 58 percent of the bets and 64 percent of the handle as 3-point favorites against the Bills by DraftKings. However, 71 percent of the moneyline bets and 65 percent of the handle has been on Buffalo at +130.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is chasing an elusive second Super Bowl title. He led Green Bay to victory in Super Bowl XLV, and the Packers are early 3.5-point favorites over the Bucs.

The Packers are being backed by 70 percent of the bets and 69 percent of the spread line handle at DraftKings. The action is more split on the moneyline, with Green Bay (-186) backed by 53 percent of the bets and 61 percent of the handle.
