This season’s Super Bowl is still two weeks away, but there are already odds posted for the winner of next season’s game. The Green Bay Packers have the second-best odds, according to William Hill U.S., at 12-1.
Three teams are 5-1. They are the San Francisco 49ers, Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.
There are also two other teams at 12-1. The New England Patriots and New Orleans Saints.
So, if you think you can predict the future, maybe you want to go get in on some of this action. That is, maybe you know which team is going to have the best draft. That event happens in May. Maybe you know who’s going to sign the right free agents. Free agency begins in March. Maybe you know which teams are going to suffer major injuries in training camp and which ones aren’t. Training camp starts at the end of July.
And hell, you could go get the Jacksonville Jaguars at 150-1 right now and say they draft a franchise quarterback, sign some big ticket free agents and it just all comes together for them. I mean, Kansas City had a pretty dramatic turnaround this past season.
