Look back at each Super Bowl team's odds of winning throughout the season

The Philadelphia Eagles are underdogs going into Super Bowl LII, but the team is used to it by now.

At the start of the season, the Eagles were given only a 35 percent chance to make the playoffs -- and just a 2 percent chance to win the big game. Philly steadily climbed its way up the rankings throughout the season, but never quite had better odds than the Goliath New England Patriots.

The Patriots entered the 2017-18 campaign as FiveThirtyEight's heavy favorites. The Kansas City Chiefs gave New England a run for its money early on, but Brady, Belichick and the rest of the defending champions couldn't be knocked down. 

Come February 4, only one team can reign supreme. Click through below to see each roster's odds of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy -- and how those odds evolved throughout the season.
