The New England Patriots are just a three-point favorite over the Atlanta Falcons to win Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5, according to online gambling site Bovada.

At the start of the season, the Patriots were given the No. 1 odds to reach the Super Bowl. The Falcons started as the 16th likeliest team to reach the Super Bowl, with 50-1 odds. By Week 16, the Falcons‘ odds improved to 16-1, tied for the seventh-most likely.

New England has been given 3-2 odds to win, while the Falcons are given 13-5.

The total points scored is projected to be 59, the highest projected score total in the history of the Super Bowl, edging out Super Bowl XLIV, which was played between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts. The two teams were projected to score 57 total points, but the end result was just 48.
