Caesars Sportsbook has released its latest NFL odds for the upcoming season and the Buffalo Bills still have work to do to become Super Bowl favorites.

The Buffalo Bills have made steps to improve their chances at winning a Super Bowl, unfortunately, the oddsmakers aren’t ready to label them among the top contenders.

Revealing their betting offs for the upcoming season, Caesar Sportsbook has Buffalo making improvements, especially in the AFC East. For the first time in a while, the Bills have moved ahead of the New England Patriots as +100 favorites to win the division.

Unfortunately, when it comes to winning the AFC Championship, the Bills sit behind the Patriots to win the conference at +1200. When it comes to hoisting the Lombardi Trophy, Buffalo is at 28-1 odds to get the job done while New England is at 20-1.

To give you an idea of where the BIlls rank in relation to the other contenders, the Kansas City Chiefs are 4-1 to repeat, with the San Francisco 49ers have the best odds in the NFC at 7-1. Not too far behind are the Baltimore Ravens at 8-1, the Dallas Cowboys at 11-1 and the Seattle Seahawks at 14-1.

So what does this all mean? If Bills fans put money on the team to win the AFC championship or the Super Bowl, it will provide themselves with a nice payday. At the same time, it would be tough to have confidence in placing a bet like that at the moment.

It is going to take some time for the Bills to prove they are capable of winning when it matters most. They almost did that against the Houston Texans but they have proven that they have one of the top defenses in the NFL and getting Stefon Diggs provides Josh Allen with a top-end receiver to throw to.

The real question is whether they can put it all together when it’s all said and done and right now, they haven’t been able to do that yet.
