Unlike last season, when there was no true favorite to win the Super Bowl, the New England Patriots stand alone as the team sportsbooks deem to have the best shot at taking the Lombardi Trophy this season.

In Super Bowl LI, the Patriots rallied from a 28–3 deficit – with 2:07 left in the third quarter – to win in overtime, with a score of 34–28. This would be the franchise’s fifth Super Bowl title. Super Bowl LI was the first Super Bowl to be decided in overtime. This would also be a record fifth Super Bowl victory for the Brady–Belichick combo. For Tom Brady, this would be his fifth. With the Super Bowl win, he broke his tie with hall of fame quarterbacks Joe Montana and Terry Bradshaw who both have four wins each. Moreover, head coach Bill Belichick’s fifth Super Bowl meant he surpassed Hall of Fame coach Chuck Noll (4) for most wins in the Super Bowl by a head coach.
