At one point early last offseason, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers were priced as a 60-1 long-shot to go to the Super Bowl at the end of the 2020 season ... meaning that some people may be close to cashing in as the Bucs take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7.

Yahoo took a look at the early Super Bowl LVI odds to see if there is any good value bets for next year’s big game, and the Las Vegas Raiders are priced at 50-1 by MGM.

So, a $10 bet on the Raiders right now would pay out $500 if they win the Super Bowl following the 2021 season, which will be held in Los Angeles’ SoFi Stadium. That’s pretty good odds.

The Raiders think they are close to putting together a run — and at 50-1, they might be a worthwhile early bet.
