Despite the fact we're just shortly removed after Super Bowl XLVIII, it's never too early to look ahead to next year. And that's exactly what happens here as Les Vegas has released the odds for the 2015 Super Bowl.
The Eagles are currently favored at 25/1. They are tied with four other teams for the 10th best odds. The defending Super Bowl champions Seattle Seahawks are tied at the top with the Broncos, 6/1. Dead last is both the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars at 100/1.
This list looks about right to me. The Eagles took a big step in the first year under Chip Kelly but still have work to do before being considered as one the league's bests. The most curious line I see is the Falcons at 18/1. Vegas is high on a big bounce back year for them.
