There was no immediate impact on 2020 Super Bowl odds, they still sit at +450,but as sportsbooks and fans begin to get a glimpse at how Bell will be used in Andy Reid’s offense, the odds are sure to fluctuate. Bell is known for being able to lineup anywhere on the field to take advantage of mismatches, something Reid will surely put to use often.
Kansas City Chiefs +450
Baltimore Ravens +550
Seattle Seahawks +800
Green Bay Packers +1000
New Orleans Saints +1200
