But what might surprise you is this: More bets have been placed on the Oakland Raiders to win Super Bowl LII than any other National Football League team at sportsbooks around Vegas, reports's David Purdum. Optimism about professional football in the desert metropolis has paved the way for the Raiders themselves to draw the most bets to win the Super Bowl.

The team's odds have peaked around 20-1 and have since dwindled to as short as 6-1.

Surprisingly, the Patriots, and their 3/1 odds of winning it all, do not even land in the top-five of the list of teams receiving the most bets to win the Super Bowl.

The Raiders are No. 1 in Super Bowl bets at William Hill's 108 Nevada sportsbooks, as well as at Caesars Palace, Station Casinos, South Point, Westgate Las Vegas and CG Technology sportsbooks.

Westgate SuperBook told ESPN the teams with the most bets to win the Super Bowl are the Raiders, Packers, Cowboys, Giants and Steelers. The same can be said for division title bets, where the Raiders have taken more action to win the AFC West than any other team from any division.

The Raiders aren't coming until 2019, but Las Vegas already loves its new team.

The club will open the season on the road against the Tennessee Titans.

Carr, Mack and the rest of the Raiders will attempt to begin their Super Bowl journey when they travel to face the Tennessee Titans for Week 1 of the regular season on September 10.

The Super Bowl miraculous win of the New England Patriots have etched in the minds of millions of sports fans as well as the Las Vegas oddsmakers.

Bookmakers aren't convinced the Raiders' move to Las Vegas is driving the current surge in betting interest, though.

For what it's worth, it appears to be the bettors who are favoring the Raiders, not the casinos. "Last year, the Raiders played really high-scoring games, and they started covering spreads". The Raiders' win total is set at 9.5.

"We've got 82 bets on over and 33 on under", he continued.
