Those betting on the New England Patriots clearly feel indifferent to the news that Cam Newton is returning, as sportsbooks show longshot odds for New England to win the Super Bowl.

- Tampa Bay Buccaneers +650

During the season, Newton suffered from COVID-19 and lingering injuries that prevented him from truly connecting with the offense. However, the former MVP did show signs of his older self, which could indicate why the Patriots opted for him to return.
Cam expressed his want to return as well, so the news comes as a positive for both the team as well as Newton himself.
"I'm getting tired of changing [teams]," said Newton. "I am at a point in my career where I know way more than I did last year. Yes, I would go back."
The Patriots finished the season with a 7-9 record and were third in their division. New England did, however, have several players opt out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns.
With these players returning, New England could possibly make a serious run if Cam manages to stay healthy and Belichick is able to coach a full team. Taking the +4000 longshot odds could turn out to be major wins for NFL betting fans.
Sports betting fans not confident in New England winning the Super Bowl but still want to place action on the storied franchise may want to look at their odds to win the AFC East.
Odds To Win AFC East
- Buffalo Bills -170
- Miami Dolphins +300
- New England Patriots +475
- New York Jets +2000
While the Patriots were towards the bottom of the division last season, they can still make some moves during the off-season to give them the edge.
There is no telling what moves the Miami Dolphins or Buffalo Bills may make that would give them a bigger edge, however, so longshot betting fans will truly be rooting for the underdog.
As for the New York Jets, the Patriots shouldn’t have anything to worry about there.
