Vegas thinks the Patriots have the AFC locked up, Tom Brady is the MVP favorite

Here are the latest updates from Bovada.

The New England Patriots are heavy favorites to win the division, the conference, and the Super Bowl according to Bovada.

The Patriots have 1/75 odds to win the AFC East, which means you have to bet $75 to win a measly $1. The Bills (14/1) are falling, while the Dolphins (40/1) and the Jets (66/1) have better odds this week than last week for some reason.

When you look to the whole AFC, the Patriots have 10/11 odds of representing the conference in the Super Bowl. This means you need to bet $11 to win $10. The Steelers (6/1) haven’t changed, while the Broncos (7/1), Chiefs (7/1), Raiders (12/1), and Texans (20/1) have improved this past week, likely due to the weak AFC field. The Bengals (25/1) and Colts (25/1) are considered longshots.

The Patriots have improved their Super Bowl odds, too, and have 2/1 odds, well ahead of every other team. The Cowboys are in second at 9/1 and the Seahawks are third with 10/1.

The Packers (12/1), Broncos (14/1), Vikings (14/1), Steelers (14/1), Falcons (16/1), Chiefs (16/1), Cardinals (25/1), and Raiders (25/1) fill out the rest of the field.

Patriots QB Tom Brady has 5/4 odds of winning the NFL MVP Award and it’s really just a three horse race, with Falcons QB Matt Ryan (11/2) and Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (15/2) the only real competition at this point.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (12/1), Raiders QB Derek Carr (12/1), Cardinals RB David Johnson (20/1), are followed by a quartet of quarterbacks in Saints QB Drew Brees, Colts QB Andrew Luck, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, and Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at 25/1.
