The New England Patriots might have lost Super Bowl LII, but they’re already the favorites to make it back next year and win Super Bowl LIII according to oddsmaker Bovada.

The Patriots have 5/1 odds (16.7%) of winning the next Super Bowl, edging out the Philadelphia Eagles and Green Bay Packers that are tied for second with 9/1 odds (10.0%). The Minnesota Vikings and Pittsburgh Steelers round out the top five and are tied with 12/1 odds (7.7%).

The Patriots and Steelers are again expected to be the class of the AFC, although that could certainly change over free agency, as the third-best team in the AFC is the Houston Texans with 25/1 odds (3.8%). The Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs are tied with 28/1 odds (3.4%) and the Denver Broncos, Indianapolis Colts, Los Angeles Chargers, and Oakland Raiders are tied with 33/1 odds (2.9%).

The rest of the AFC East is in poor standing as the Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets are all tied at 66/1 odds (1.5%) for the third-worst odds in the entire NFL. They only beat out the Cleveland Browns and Chicago Bears, that are tied for last place with 100/1 odds (1.1%).
