While Tom Brady can call himself Super Bowl champion once again, his former team is heading into the unknown. A roster in need of upgrades at numerous positions, questions at the quarterback spot, and an improved division all create an uncertain outlook for the New England Patriots heading into 2021.

Accordingly, the oddsmakers do not feel confident projecting the team as a Super Bowl contender next year. According to Sports Betting Dime, the Patriots have just the 16th best odds to win the championship in 2021:

  1. Kansas City Chiefs: +650 (13/2)
  2. Green Bay Packers: +1100 (11/1)
  3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +1100 (11/1)
  4. Los Angeles Rams: +1150 (23/2)
  5. Buffalo Bills: +1200 (12/1)
  6. Baltimore Ravens: +1250 (25/2)
  7. San Francisco 49ers: +1850 (37/2)
  8. Seattle Seahawks: +2400 (24/1)
  9. Pittsburgh Steelers: +2500 (25/1)
  10. Tennessee Titans: +2800 (28/1)
  11. Cleveland Browns: +2900 (29/1)
  12. Indianapolis Colts: +2950 (59/2)
  13. Miami Dolphins: +4000 (40/1)
  14. New Orleans Saints: +4200 (42/1)
  15. Dallas Cowboys: +4400 (44/1)
  16. New England Patriots: +5500 (55/1)

Given the team’s struggles in 2020 and uncertain outlook for the future, those numbers are not really that big a surprise. The Patriots are entering the upcoming season as underdogs, regardless of which investments they will make over the course of the coming months.
