TAB Betting Blog: Patriots top the 2019 Super Bowl markets

New England have opened as $7 favourites for Super Bowl LIII, with TAB.com.au, odds that are testament to their consistency over a considerable period.

They had lifted the Vince Lombardi Trophy twice in three years before Super Bowl LII, and are expected to be duelling for another title so long as the quarterback-head coach partnership of Tom Brady and Bill Belichick remains intact.

New England opened $6 favourites for Super Bowl LII minutes after winning last year's title. Philadelphia Eagles 12 months ago were $51 with TAB.com.au to win Super Bowl LII, but they are now $9 to repeat as NFL champions next year.

The Green Bay Packers, with quarterback Aaron Rodgers returning from injury, and perennial challengers the Pittsburgh Steelers are both $11 chances.
