Week 16 wraps up Monday evening with the Buffalo Bills traveling to face the New England Patriots. The Bills can’t finish higher than second in the AFC playoff standings, and so it’s not entirely clear how much rest they’ll give their starters.

That all comes due to the the Kansas City Chiefs clinching the No. 1 seed in the conference. The expansion to 14 teams means only one team in each conference gets a bye. The road to the Super Bowl goes through Arrowhead Stadium in the AFC, in spite of the Chiefs stumbling in Week 16. They barely beat a game Atlanta Falcons squad and the struggle to win lengthened their Super Bowl 55 odds.

DraftKings Sportsbook updated their Super Bowl odds and the Chiefs moved from +170 to +180. Their odds have consistently shortened since their loss to Las Vegas, and this was the first time they had lengthened.

That being said, they remain well ahead of the rest of the league headed into the final week of the regular season. The Green Bay Packers are next at +525 and will likely clinch the No. 1 seed in the NFC next weekend. The remaining odds of eligible playoff teams include:

New Orleans Saints: +700
Buffalo Bills: +1000
Seattle Seahawks: +1000
Tampa Bay Buccaneers: +1100
Baltimore Ravens: +1300
Pittsburgh Steelers: +2200
Los Angeles Rams: +2500
Tennessee Titans: +2800
Indianapolis Colts: +3300
Miami Dolphins: +5000
Cleveland Browns: +6000
Chicago Bears: +6600
Arizona Cardinals: +7500
Dallas Cowboys: +10000
Washington Football Team: +10000
New York Giants: +15000
