One football season is over and we’re already starting to look forward to the next one.
In Las Vegas, that means installing favorites to take home the Lombardi Trophy at the Meadowlands a year from now. They believe that 49ers running back Frank Gore will have a another chance to prove his team is the best on the field in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Nick Groke of the Denver Post reports that the MGM Race and Sports Book has installed the 49ers and Broncos as 5-1 favorites to win the Super Bowl next season. The Ravens join the Seahawks and Texans with 10-1 odds on winning again while the Patriots and Packers are considered 7-1 shots to replace Baltimore as league champions.
On the other side of the coin are the Jaguars. If you’re a firm believer that Gus Bradley is going to shock the world in his first season as the Jaguars coach, you should scrape together some cash for a trip to Vegas because the Jags are on the board at 200-1 to win the next Super Bowl. The Chiefs had the league’s worst record in 2012, but MGM has them as 150-1 shots for next year.
