If you think 40-1 odds are good, you may want to place your bets on the Miami Dolphins before the line changes after free agency and the draft. However, Vegas oddsmakers would disagree with you as they consider the Dolphins a longshot to win next year's Super Bowl.
Bovada lists the Seattle Seahawks as the favorite to win next year's Super Bowl, giving them 5-1 odds. The Patriots are second at 6-1 and the Green Bay Packers are third with 7-1 odds.
Thirteen teams have better odds to win the Super Bowl than the Dolphins. That list includes the Dallas Cowboys (12-1), Indianapolis Colts (12-1), Denver Broncos (14-1), Baltimore Ravens (20-1), Philadelphia Eagles (20-1), San Francisco 49ers (20-1), New Orleans Saints (25-1), Pittsburgh Steelers (20-1), Arizona Cardinals (33-1) and Detroit Lions (33-1).
Other teams in the same boat as the Dolphins with 40-1 odds include the Atlanta Falcons, Carolina Panthers, Chicago bears, Cincinnati Bengals, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs, New York Giants, San Diego Chargers and St. Louis Rams. The Buffalo Bills have 50-1 odds and the New York Jets have 100-1 odds. Teams lower than them on the totem pole include the Tennessee Titans, Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.
These numbers, of course, can change at any time depending on roster moves, coach and front office moves and more. We'll see how the line shifts following free agency and then again after the NFL Draft.
