Falcons 16:1 for 2014 Super Bowl

Postby Pudge » Wed Feb 06, 2013 11:55 am

Same as Saints, tied for 9th best odds:

http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Sup ... eason.html

We haven’t seen a team win back-to-back Super Bowls since Tom Brady and the New England Patriots accomplished the feat in 2004 and 2005, so the current 14/1 price tag on the Baltimore Ravens may not be viewed as appealing for those looking to find some value.

Joe Flacco and the Ravens hit the board at 14/1 on Monday to win the 2014 Super Bowl.
As the Ravens parade through the streets of Baltimore on Tuesday to celebrate the team’s 34-31 win over the San Francisco 49ers, the other 31 NFL teams begin the process of looking towards the 2013 campaign. Below is the complete rundown of the current odds for each team to win the next Super Bowl, courtesy of the LVH SuperBook in Las Vegas.

Take note that the sports books are well aware of the fact that the Seattle Seahawks (12/1) will more than likely emerge as the trendy Super Bowl selection come August. What’s also interesting is that the Cleveland Browns (50/1) are currently listed with shorter odds than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (60/1).

We won’t be firing on any of these options until the conclusion of both the free agent period and the draft. In our opinion, there’s simply too much uncertainty at the moment regarding which teams will emerge for the offseason in better position for a potential championship run.

After an initial glance, the teams we plan to monitor closely include the New Orleans Saints (16/1), New York Giants (20/1) and Cincinnati Bengals (30/1) and Carolina Panthers (50/1).

Current odds to win the 2014 Super Bowl

New England Patriots: 6/1
San Francisco 49ers: 7/1
Denver Broncos: 8/1

I take that as a slap in the face. People always doubting, oh well.

If the Patroits are 6-1, and Green Bay 10-1, then I think our 16-1, is being just
about where we deserve!!

2 questions:

When was the last time a team lost in the Super Bowl and then the next year won the Super Bowl? moreso, even made the Super Bowl?

How many times has a team won back to back Super Bowls?
