In case you missed it, Tom Brady is no longer a New England Patriot. The 42 year old has signed with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and is looking forward to his next chapter. How does this recent move shake up odds for the 2021 Super Bowl?
Top 10 Super Bowl Odds For 2021
The NFL has had some changes for their next Super Bowl. Obviously with the change in Brady’s team, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have moved up in the odds. The following are the 10 teams best odds:
- Kansas City Chiefs 4-1
- Baltimore Ravens 13-2
- San Francisco 49ers 7-1

Shift In Odds
When the 2020 season ended, the Patriots originally had a 12/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl for next season. As soon as Brady made his announcement to leave, the Patriots fell to 20/1. His odds at winning personally fell some, but his old team's odds drastically fell.
Brady’s move to the Bucs skyrocketed their Super Bowl odds from 50/1 to 16/1. Brady will have some talent to play with in the likes of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and OJ Howard.
2021 Season For Bucs
The Bucs have greatly improved, but are they the next Super Bowl team to win? Their last season quarterback Jameis Winston threw 30 touchdowns and 30 interceptions. Brady is nowhere near those turnover numbers but one has to wonder if he will eclipse over 33 touchdowns this season.
Brady is motivated to win without Bill Belichick and has one of the best core receivers he has had in some time. I can see his guys having some of the best career seasons they will have next season. This new team with Brady will make a very interesting run at the Super Bowl.
It is definitely going to be weird seeing Brady in another uniform. We all thought he would have retired in New England since he spent the last 20 seasons there. However, will his new team be able to adapt together and make a run for a title together? It also helps that the 2021 Super Bowl will be in Tampa next year, so we have home field advantage if the Bucs happen to make it there.
