Earlier today, Bovada updated their Super Bowl odds for all 32 NFL teams, using the first week of Free Agency to reassess the odds that had been established after this past Super Bowl. For the Miami Dolphins, that update kept them in the bottom ten teams in the NFL, with 50-to-1 odds that they will win it all next year. The odds did not change for the Dolphins.
Knowing the odds for all 32 teams gives us a chance to check out the Dolphins' 2014 opponents, and their Super Bowl odds. The week-to-week schedule has not yet been announced, but the teams the Dolphins will face are known.
First, the Dolphins will, of course, face their AFC East rivals twice, once at Sun Life Stadium in Miami and once on the road. Those three teams, the New England Patriots, New York Jets, and Buffalo Bills have respective Super Bowl odds of 9-to-1, 66-to-1, and 75-to-1. That gives the Patriots the fourth highest odds, while the Jets are 28th and the Bills 29th.
The 2014 season will see the AFC East face the AFC West and the NFC North. That means, each of the AFC East teams will face the Denver Boncos (7-to-1, 2nd), Green Bay Packers (10-to-1, 5th), Chicago Bears (28-to-1, 10th), Kansas City Chiefs (33-to-1, 11th (Tie)), San Diego Chargers (33-to-1, 11th (Tie)), Detroit Lions (40-to-1, 19th (Tie)), Minnesota Vikings (66-to-1, 27th (Tie)), and Oakland Raiders (100-to-1, 31st).
The final two teams for the Dolphins to face in 2014 are the two teams from the other two AFC division which finished 2013 in the same position in their division as the Dolphins did in 2013. That means Miami will face the Baltimore Ravens, who finished third in the AFC North and have 33-to-1 (11th (Tie)) Super Bowl odds, and the Jacksonville Jaguars, third from the AFC South and the team with the longest Super Bowl odds at this point, sitting at 150-to-1.
