More from ESPN.com
Coaching changes, scheme changes, front-office changes, expectations, average player ages and starters unsigned for next season can provide clues on which teams are set to rebuild. Here's the rundown of which teams will look most different by next fall. Story
New England sits atop the early odds, at 9-2 to win Super Bowl LIII at the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook. The Patriots were 5-1 to win Super Bowl LII after winning Super Bowl LI 34-28 over the Atlanta Falcons.
The Steelers, at 8-1, are the only other AFC team with single-digit odds at Westgate.
The Eagles have the best odds of any NFC team at 6-1. The Minnesota Vikings (12-1), Green Bay Packers (12-1), New Orleans Saints (16-1) and Atlanta Falcons (18-1) are among the next tier of contenders.

"We opened the Eagles at 10-1, but the move to 6-1 was just a reaction to the expected money coming in after they won [on Sunday]," said Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook manager Ed Salmons. "Public will think if they won the Super Bowl without Carson Wentz, when he comes back they should be even better."
Another notable team: the San Francisco 49ers, who opened at 300-1 to win Super Bowl LII at Westgate last February. This year? They tied for the eighth-best odds, at 20-1.
With Alex Smith reportedly headed to the Washington Redskins (80-1), one big offseason storyline will be where free-agent QB Kirk Cousins lands. He has the potential to shift the futures odds of a team.
A record $138.4 million was bet on Super Bowl LI at Nevada sportsbooks. The handle on this year's game is expected to break that record.
Super Bowl LIII will be played on Feb. 3, 2019, at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
