Super Bowl 2015: Odds favor Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos again

Robert Mayer-USA TODAY Sports

With the completion of Super Bowl XLVIII last night, the odds for Super Bowl XLIX immediately were released - and the two teams at the top look pretty familiar. The Seattle Seahawks are the favorite as they look to repeat, while the Denver Broncos have the second best odds.

The 2014 Super Bowl ended last night with the Seattle Seahawks dominating the Denver Broncos to claim their first Lombardi Trophy. The end of that game means there is only one thing to do: immediately begin looking toward the 2015 Super Bowl. Nevermind things like free agency, the draft, and the regular season, it's all about the NFL's championship contest, and Las Vegas is all over it.

Currently, the Seahawks are the favorite to win the next Super Bowl, according to RJ Bell of pregame.com, defending their championship from last night. The Denver Broncos are second, meaning Vegas sees a repeat of Super Bowl XLVIII in Super Bowl XLIX. The San Francisco 49ers, New England Patriots, Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints round out the top five, odds wise (the Packers and Saints are tied, in case you wanted to point out that I have six teams listed in the top five).

The Miami Dolphins show up at the 24th team in the list, with 50-to-1 odds of winning it all next year. That puts them just ahead of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tennessee Titans (60-to-1) and behind the Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, Washington Redskins, Detroit Lions, St. Louis Rams, Pittsburgh Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Houston Texans, and San Diego Chargers, all at 40-to-1.

Obviously, the collapse at the end of the year, as well as all of the negative publicity around the Dolphins the last few weeks, have brought down the odds of them winning the franchise's third Lombardi Trophy. However, I would have thought the Dolphins would be ahead of teams like the Redskins or the Texans. Perhaps the postivity surrounding the respective head coaching changes swung the odds a little more in their favor.

Rounding out the AFC East, the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills are both at 75-to-1, tied with the Cleveland Browns.
