NFL oddsmakers are seeing red as they turn the page towards the 2020 season.

In new odds from Caesars Sportsbook released following Super Bowl LIV the Kansas City Chiefs are favorites to repeat, with 6-1 odds. No team has won back-to-back Super Bowls since the 2003-04 Patriots.

Following the Chiefs are the Baltimore Ravens at 7-1 odds, then the defending NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers with 8-1 odds. Rounding out the top five are a pair of teams with quarterback uncertainty in the New Orleans Saints (11-1) and New England Patriots (14-1).

Here are the odds for all 32 NFL teams (via Caesars Sportsbook/ESPN):

Chiefs 6-1
Ravens 7-1
49ers 8-1
Saints 11-1
Patriots 14-1
Steelers 15-1
Packers 18-1
Cowboys 18-1
Seahawks 22-1
Eagles 25-1
Rams 25-1
Browns 25-1
Vikings 25-1
Chargers 30-1
Raiders 30-1
Texans 30-1
Titans 30-1
Bills 30-1
Bears 30-1
Colts 35-1
Falcons 40-1
Buccaneers 50-1
Cardinals 60-1
Jets 60-1
Jaguars 75-1
Broncos 75-1
Dolphins 100-1
Giants 100-1
Lions 100-1
Panthers 100-1
Redskins 200-1
Bengals 200-1

There's some surprising value in the middle of that list, especially for the group at 25-1. The Vikings and Eagles each feature young rosters that had strong showings in 2019, while the consensus is the Cleveland Browns played well below their talent level last season.

Meanwhile, some of Tom Brady's potential suitors (if he ends up leaving the Patriots) hold long odds. The Raiders, Titans, and Chargers (30-1) are in the middle of the list, but a team such as the Buccaneers (50-1) or the Dolphins (100-1) could see a huge leap if they can ink Brady this spring.

The Washington Redskins and Cincinnati Bengals round out the list at 200-1 odds, although after watching Joe Burrow in the National Championship game, that number seems a little low.
