The NFL kicks off free agency a week from today with the start of the tampering period on March 16th. Teams will have two days to start discussing contracts with unrestricted free agents, and then can start formally executing them on Wednesday the 18th. Teams have already been talking to agents, but this is the more formalized process where action finally starts happening.

In the meantime, even with so much roster churn about to happen, people are betting on their favorite teams to win Super Bowl 55 next February. DraftKings Sportsbook released the latest numbers, and we get the familiar teams up top. The New England Patriots lead betting handle, while the Kansas City Chiefs lead in total bets.

The Patriots are getting love in spite of the uncertainty surrounding Tom Brady’s future. They are currently +1400, and more than likely will see their odds shorten if Brady re-signs. Now is the time to get on board if you think Brady will return and still has enough left in the tank.

The Philadelphia Eagles are not surprising as a popular pick in part based on location. DraftKings’ biggest business is in New Jersey, and Pennsylvania is doing plenty well also. The Eagles have solid Super Bowl odds at +1700, and if you think Carson Wentz and company can take a step forward, there’s value to be had.
