New, comments

The Eagles are the only NFC East team that saw their Super Bowl odds improve since bets opened.

The most recent version of 2015 Super Bowl odds come to us via the LVH Sportsbook. Let's take a look at how the Eagles' chances stack up prior to the start of NFL training camp.

According to the LVH Sportsbook, the Eagles currently have the 9th best Super Bowl odds at 20/1. That's an improvement over the longer 25/1 odds the Eagles faced when bets opened. It's also an improvement of where Bovada.lv had the Eagles in early May at 22/1.

2015 Super Bowl XLIX Odds (Top 9 teams)

Team Current Open
Seattle Seahawks 5/1 6/1
Denver Broncos 5/1 6/1
San Francisco 49ers 7/1 7/1
New England Patriots 8/1 12/1
Green Bay Packers 12/1 15/1
New Orleans Saints 14/1 15/1
Cincinnati Bengals 18/1 18/1
Indianapolis Colts 18/1 25/1
Philadelphia Eagles 20/1 25/1

I'm not sure I'd have the Bengals and the Colts above the Eagles here but at least it's close. Then again, the Colts do play in a pretty terrible division... and yes, it's even worse than the NFC East.

2015 Super Bowl XLIX Odds (NFC Top 5)

Team Current Open
Seattle Seahawks 5/1 6/1
San Francisco 49ers 7/1 7/1
Green Bay Packers 12/1 15/1
New Orleans Saints 14/1 15/1
Philadelphia Eagles 20/1 25/1

The Eagles have pretty much consistently been pegged as the fifth best team in the NFC this offseason. The Seahawks and Niners are on a tier of their own at the top. The Packers are flirting with that Tier 1 but could also fall into the Tier 2 category with New Orleans and Philadelphia.

Team Current Open
Philadelphia Eagles 20/1 25/1
New York Giants 40/1 30/1
Dallas Cowboys 50/1 30/1
Washington Redskins 50/1 30/1

No surprise to see the Eagles at the top of the NFC East. They're the only team here that's seen their odds improve since bets opened. All other NFC East teams saw their odds at winning it all get longer.

Recap

The Eagles have:

The ninth best odds in the NFL.
The fifth best odds in the NFC.
The first best odds in the NFC East.
