NFL futures bettors are all-in on the Buffalo Bills to win Super Bowl 57. They're -700 favorites at Caesars Sportsbook to win their first Super Bowl and are taking more than double the action on the futures of any other team.

The Bills' past two postseasons have ended with losses in Kansas City. You can't beat the Chiefs without slowing down Patrick Mahomes (KC totaled 80 points in those two wins), so perhaps Buffalo's biggest offseason addition was All-Pro linebacker Von Miller on a six-year deal worth $120 million, with $51.5 million guaranteed. The two-time Super Bowl champion has 115.5 career regular-season sacks and got to Joe Burrow twice in the Rams' Super Bowl 56 win over the Bengals.

Buffalo will also hopefully have Pro Bowl cornerback Tre'Davious White available for their next postseason run. White went down with a season-ending ACL tear in Week 12 and is on track to see the field in training camp. The Bills are projected to return 19 of their 22 starters and also traded up in the first round of the draft to select Florida cornerback Kaiir Elam. Former Georgia running back James Cook, the No. 63 overall pick, could be a sleeper Offensive Rookie of the Year pick – he's +1500 on that prop. QB Josh Allen is the +700 MVP favorite. There aren't any obvious holes on Buffalo's roster.

As of this writing, 14.4 percent of all money wagered at Caesars Sportsbook to win Super Bowl 57 is on Buffalo, well ahead of No. 2 Tampa Bay at 6.8 percent. On tickets sold, Buffalo is also No. 1 at 10.6 percent. Cincinnati is second at 6.4 percent.

"Usually you have a wide variety on bets for each team for Super Bowl futures," said Adam Pullen, Assistant Director of Trading at Caesars Sportsbook. "So I'd think it's very rare that one team just totally dominates like the Bills are doing now. I just think the Bills have all the momentum in the public's eyes, like it's a matter of when - not if - they're going to win the Super Bowl. I'm not surprised they're a popular choice. But as far as betting goes, for it to be that big of a difference is surprising, especially on a team that has pretty low odds."

The largest Bills Super Bowl 57 wager is from a Nevada bettor who dropped $8,000 on Buffalo at +700 for potential winnings of $56,000. Out of the 206 Super Bowl 57 futures bets of at least $1,000 placed at Caesars, the Bills have brought in a whopping 41 of them (19.9 percent).

The full NFL schedule will be out on Thursday. While Buffalo might be favored in every regular-season home game, it could be an underdog when visiting the likes of Baltimore, Kansas City, Cincinnati and the LA Rams. We know that the Bills host the Titans on Monday night in Week 2. Buffalo opened at -7 for that game.
