2014 Super Bowl odds

The streets of New Orleans may still be getting swept clean after Sunday night’s Super Bowl celebration, but it is already time to look ahead. The oddsmakers in Las Vegas waste little time when it comes to laying lines, and despite being less than 24 hours removed from Ray Lewis and the Ravens’ second Super Bowl celebration, they have already released the odds for the 2014 Super Bowl.

The streets of New Orleans may still be getting swept clean after Sunday night’s Super Bowl celebration, but it is already time to look ahead. The oddsmakers in Las Vegas waste little time when it comes to laying lines, and despite being less than 24 hours removed from Ray Lewis and the Ravens’ second Super Bowl celebration, they have already released the odds for the 2014 Super Bowl.

The game is to be played on February 2, 2014 in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and if Monday morning’s odds hold up then we should be seeing some usual suspects. The listed lines have the Patriots as 7 to 1 favorites to take home the title in 2014, despite losing in the AFC Championship this season. According to the odds, the Patriots would be playing the 49ers (8 to 1) in what would be their second-straight Super Bowl. 

The Peyton Manning-led Denver Broncos (8 to 1) and the Green Bay Packers (10 to 1) round out the top four favorites. 

It seems that the oddsmakers don’t have much faith in the Eagles next season, as they are listed as a 50 to 1 favorite to win the Super Bowl; the same odds as the perennially poor Kansas City Chiefs, St. Louis Rams, and Miami Dolphins.

After such a disappointing season, teeming with turmoil and underperformance, such long odds are not a surprise. In fact, considering the questions and uncertainty surrounding the team heading into the offseason, the odds could be reasonably higher. The Eagles hired a college coach with no NFL experience, and don’t yet know who their starting quarterback will be; not usually the prerequisite signs of a Super Bowl season. 

However, things could be worse for the Philadelphia faithful. At least the Eagles aren’t 150 to 1 favorites like the Jaguars or Raiders.  Check out the full list of 2014 Super Bowl odds below:
