The Bills picked up a crucial win over the Chiefs in Week 6, positioning themselves as heavy favorites to pick up the No. 1 seed in the conference.
Prior to Week 6, the Bills were +325, so the win didn't have an exponential impact on the odds.
But it did have a meaningful one for books.
Buffalo represents the biggest liability in the market for BetMGM, as they hold the lead in betting tickets (13.9%) and handle (22.0%).
Philadelphia, meanwhile, saw another solid dip in its odds after another victory. The Eagles beat their division rival, the Cowboys, to remain as the lone remaining undefeated NFL team at 6-0.
Philly opened the season +4000 to win the Super Bowl, but now is the second favorite at +550.
However, bettors aren't enamored with the Eagles as a Super Bowl contender. Only 5.5% of the tickets and an equal 5.5% of the handle are riding with Jalen Hurts and the Eagles to secure a second Lombardi Trophy.
Following Philly on the odds board in Kansas City, which has drifted to +750 after the disappointing loss.
The Chiefs do represent the second-biggest liability for BetMGM, with 11.3% of the tickets and 13.1% of the handle. At +750, the Chiefs are back to their original preseason Super Bowl price.
No other team is shorter than +1000, with the Bucs floating away from that number and now +1200 following an upset loss against the Steelers.
