Nobody is expecting the Raiders to win the Super Bowl next season, but a playoff push is not out of the realm of possibility. One wild card is whether the retirements of Charles Woodson and Justin Tuck will create a leadership void in the locker room. So odds of winning the Super Bowl seem reasonable, although you could argue San Diego's odds should be better with a franchise quarterback like Philip Rivers at the helm. The Cowboys are in Romo's last 19 starts, including three of their four wins in They just need to make sure Romo stays healthy.
Giants fans aren't used to thinking of their team as a shot to win the Super Bowl. But it's hard to argue that they deserve a shorter number than this after three straight sub-. This team needs to identify at least seven defensive starters this offseason and enters with a rookie head coach. Right behind them on the list are Washington, Atlanta and Chicago -- any or all of whom could justifiably feel closer to the Super Bowl than the Giants. When a franchise has never won a Super Bowl -- and has played in only two -- it's pretty hard to complain that the odds are too long.
The Eagles are , along with seven other teams. They have the longest odds in the NFC East, which would raise an eyebrow if they hadn't just changed head coaches. Until we see what a Doug Pederson-coached team looks like -- not to mention who is playing quarterback -- it's hard to envision the Eagles as anything other than a long shot. I question some teams ahead of them Buffalo at ? The Redskins' defense needs to be overhauled, and until we see how it ultimately looks, it's hard to say how much better it will be.
Because the Redskins won a bad division and didn't beat a team with a winning record, some skepticism is warranted. But it's also true that they're trending upward because of second-year general manager Scot McCloughan and quarterback Kirk Cousins , among others. More broadly on the NFC East race, I'm not sure if Dallas should be that much higher than everyone else in the division.
Getting Tony Romo back and healthy helps, but how healthy will he be at age 36? The Bears made strides in Year 1 under John Fox. Their record is a little deceiving; they lost only three games all season by more than one score. With another year for Fox and GM Ryan Pace to continue to improve the weak points on defense, Chicago certainly could challenge for a playoff spot. But even so, the Bears don't deserve to have better odds than the 15 teams ahead of them on the list.
As the situation stands now, with Calvin Johnson contemplating retirement and a new front office in place, these odds seem fair. If Megatron ultimately decides to walk away from the game, you'd think the number would shift a bit, given how much opposing defenses devise a game plan for him. With the return of Jordy Nelson from the ACL tear that kept him out all of last season, Eddie Lacy expected to be in better shape and the possible addition of another weapon perhaps a stretch-the-field tight end for Aaron Rodgers , there's reason to think the Packers' offense will be back to what everyone is used to seeing in The window of opportunity to win another Super Bowl with Rodgers is still open.
You could make the case that the Vikings' odds shouldn't be twice as long as the Packers' after beating them for the division title. The same case could be made for the Vikings being ahead of the Cowboys , though oddsmakers are counting on both Dallas and Green Bay getting major offensive weapons back from injury. This number suggests that Vegas expects the Vikings will be in the thick of the NFC playoff race, and with their defense returning mostly intact, they should be.
If the Vikings shore up their offensive line and Teddy Bridgewater takes the next step, could look like a steal. Right above the Falcons with odds are the Jets, Bills, and Ravens. Regardless of the comparisons, the Falcons know they need to improve talent on both sides of the ball to be serious Super Bowl contenders. Until that happens, they'll be in the middle of the pack or lower. It still shows somewhat a lack of respect that the Panthers aren't at least co-favorites with the core of Cam Newton , Luke Kuechly and Greg Olsen locked up long term.
But considering this team never has posted consecutive winning seasons, it's hard to quibble with the odds too much. After two straight seasons, the Saints' Super Bowl odds are right where they belong -- in the middle of the pack, tied for 16th. However, I would suggest that the Saints have a higher ceiling than many of the other teams at or even since they have a former Super Bowl MVP quarterback still playing at an elite level in Drew Brees. They had the NFL's No. Because money is pumped in on a year-round basis, online sportsbooks have plenty of opportunities to adjust the odds in their favor.
If certain teams are getting bet too heavily, their odds can be adjusted to a lower payout to make the clubs a less favorable wager. In the past decade, Super Bowl Prop Bets have become big business in the Vegas sportsbooks and offshore.
The average bettor is very comfortable wagering on prop bets for a couple of reasons. They feel as if they know as much about the players as the oddsmakers.
