With Tom Brady joining the usually downtrodden Buccaneers, William Hill US has shaken up its Super Bowl 55 odds board.

Tampa Bay, which hasn't made the playoffs since 2007, is the sixth favorite at 16-1 while New England is tied for 10th on the board at 20-1. The Bucs finished 7-9 last year with Jameis Winston throwing an NFL-high 30 interceptions, including a record seven returned for touchdowns.

Jarrett Stidham and Cody Kessler are the only QBs left on the Pats' roster, though there are several veteran options available or soon-to-be.

A six-time Super Bowl champ whose Pats teams covered almost 60 percent of the time, Brady has a chance to end his career with huge offensive numbers as he'll play for aggressive playcaller Bruce Arians and get to throw to Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and O.J. Howard.

The Chiefs remain the 4-1 Super Bowl favorites at William Hill, followed by the Ravens (13-2), 49ers (7-1), Saints (11-1), Cowboys (12-1), Bucs (16-1), Seahawks (17-1), Eagles (17-1), Packers (18-1), Patriots (20-1) and Bills (20-1).
