The New England Patriots are no longer Super Bowl favorites, according to oddsmaker Bovada. According to their latest figures, the Patriots are in second place with 9/2 odds (18.2%), while the Philadelphia Eagles are the new clubhouse leaders with 4/1 odds (20.0%).

The Pittsburgh Steelers (15/2), Kansas City Chiefs (11/1), and Seattle Seahawks (12/1) round out the top five, while the Los Angeles Rams (14/1), New Orleans Saints (14/1), Dallas Cowboys (16/1), and Minnesota Vikings (16/1) are all considered contenders with better than 5% odds.

The AFC remains a three-team race with the Patriots (3/2; 40.0%), Steelers (3/1; 25.0%), and Chiefs (9/2; 18.2%), although the Jacksonville Jaguars (12/1), Tennessee Titans (14/1), and Oakland Raiders (16/1) all receive consideration.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is no longer the favorite to win MVP after a productive day from Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz in week 9. Wentz now leads with 1/1 odds (50.0%), while Brady is second with 21/10 odds (32.3%). Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is a distant third at 8/1, while Saints quarterback Drew Brees and Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson are tied with 14/1 odds and round out the top five.
