(In Frank Reynolds voice)... Gambling!

When the Philadelphia Eagles opened at 8/1 odds to win Super Bowl LIII, they had the second-best odds to win it all behind only the New England Patriots, who opened at 4/1. The Eagles have since jumped to 5/1 favorites to win the Super Bowl next year, with the Patriots sliding to 6/1, per this snapshot from the Borgata in Atlantic City by Zach Berman of the Philadelphia Inquirer:

The Eagles' line has undoubtedly moved because Philly fans are plunking down a lot of bets on the Eagles. Similarly, the New York Giants, a team that looks nothing remotely close to a Super Bowl contender, moved from 40/1 to 18/1, likely because of North Jersey meatheads driving down the Garden State Parkway with fistfuls of cash and a lot of delusion. The Giants now have the ninth-best odds in the NFL.

Here's an updated look, reordered with the most recent odds:
