Expectations for the Bills, Jets and Dolphins are so low this year that oddsmakers didn't even flinch when Tom Brady's suspension became official Friday.

Despite the fact that Brady will be missing the first four games of the season, the Patriots are still favored to win the AFC East and Super Bowl LI.

Of course, that's a giant slap in the face to the other teams in the division, although it probably shouldn't be. Brady will still play in 12 games this year, and the Jets, Bills and Dolphins have combined to win exactly zero AFC East titles since 2003 in any season where Brady plays 12 games or more.

The Patriots' Super Bowl odds before Brady's suspension were 6-to-1, and they stayed that way after the suspension for several reasons, according to Bovada.lv sportsbook manager Kevin Bradley.

"Even though Tom Brady will be suspended for the first four games of the season it has not really affected the Patriots Super Bowl odds for a variety of reasons," Bradley said in a statement. "First, they have a fairly easy first four matchups with the exception of playing on the road in Arizona, which would have been a tough game even if Brady was playing."

Those first four matchups are a big deal, because even if the Patriots fall on their face and go 1-3 or 0-4, it's not likely that the other AFC East teams will do much better in Weeks 1-4.

For instance, the Dolphins have to play at Cincinnati and at Seattle in the season's first four weeks. The Seahawks and Bengals have combined to go 38-9-1 at home over the past three seasons.

Anyway, if all the teams in the AFC East are equally bad through the first four weeks, that turns 2016 into a 12-game season to see who wins the division. In a 12-game season, the Patriots will have Brady back, which makes them the huge favorite.

According to Bradley, none of the other teams in the AFC East even qualify as a "threat."

"Considering how weak [New England's] division is, they are still -200 favorites to win it as there is no obvious threat," Bradley said.

There's also one other reason the Patriots' odds didn't move after the Brady suspension: The oddsmakers don't want to get burnt.

"When we went through this situation last year we raised the Patriots odds with the suspension news to around 10-1 and saw a ton of money on them even though people assumed Brady was not going to be playing the first four games, so we will not make that same mistake again," Bradley explained.

Although the Patriots are the Super Bowl favorites, their odds did take a hit in at least one category: They're no longer the sole favorite to win the AFC.

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook now has the Steelers and Patriots tied at 4-to-1 odds as the favorites to come out of the AFC.

If the Patriots struggle without Brady, that could hurt their chances at landing home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, and we all saw what happened last season when they didn't win home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
