Odds to Win 2014 Super Bowl: Bears Are Longshots Unless They Open in Philadelphia

They’re still sweeping up the confetti in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but it’s not too soon to look forward to Super Bowl XLVIII, set for New York in 2014.

Here are the odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII from Bodog.net

If you believe in Marc Trestman and the Bears, you can get a 20:1 return on your money.  I find it interesting that even with a brand new regime coming to the Bears, they’re still getting lower odds to win than the Minnesota Vikings and Detroit Lions, both checking in at 35:1.  The NFC North champion Green Bay Packers are 10:1 to bring home a Lombardi Trophy.

I find in interesting that the NFC runner up Atlanta Falcons, with the top record in the league last season, are only 18:1.  That’s a pretty good value play.  The upstart Washington Redskins also offer a nice payback at 30:1.

Here’s something to keep on your radar screen.  The last four Super Bowl winners have opened the season against the Philadelphia Eagles in Lincoln Financial Field.  The Ravens, New York Giants, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints all opened in Philadelphia the last four seasons.

The Bears are among seven other teams set to play the Eagles in Philadelphia next season.  Joining them are the Washington Redskins, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Detroit Lions, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Arizona Cardinals.

It’s a strange coincidence, but as they say in gambling parlance, the trend is your friend.

Happy wagering.
