If you were considering betting on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to win Super Bowl LVII, hopefully you put money on them before Sunday night.

Ever since Tom Brady announced he was coming out of retirement and was coming back for a 23rd NFL season, oddsmakers have lowered Tampa’s Super Bowl odds tremendously.

Depending on where you bet, the Buccaneers were sitting at anywhere from +2200 to +2800 to win the Super Bowl before Sunday night. Once Brady revealed he was coming back, that moved the Bucs to anywhere from +750 to +1000 according to Action Network and even that was a bit too high based on the money coming in. Now, after nearly two hours, most sportsbooks have the Buccaneers at +750.

This puts the Buccaneers second favorite to win the Super Bowl, behind the Buffalo Bills (+700), but that might change in the coming days if money keeps coming in for the Buccaneers. The Buccaneers move ahead of the Green Bay Packers (+800) to be the favorite from the NFC, and that was after the Packers got a similar shift once Aaron Rodgers revealed he was staying in Green Bay.
