Too high?

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Super Bowl XLIX has yet to be played but that hasn't stopped the Las Vegas SuperBook from releasing odds for next year's championship game, Super Bowl 50. (Yes, they're calling it Super Bowl 50 and not Super Bowl L.)

The Philadelphia Eagles rank with the sixth best odds (tied with the Indianapolis Colts) at 16/1. The only five teams ahead of them include the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots, the Green Bay Packers, the Denver Broncos, and the Dallas Cowboys. All five of those teams are still currently in the playoffs (as of the Divisional round).

The Eagles are actually the highest non-playoff team on the list. Considering they finished with a 10-6 record, this isn't a total shock. The Birds may have crashed down the stretch in 2014 but Vegas remains high on them. Is it too high? Maybe. The Eagles have some holes to fill, just like other teams, but they also have a big question mark at the quarterback position. Nick Foles led the NFL in turnovers before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury in Week 9. Philadelphia will be hoping he bounces back but it's far from a guarantee.

It's no surprise to see that the Cowboys have the best odds in the division considering they won the division and a playoff game. The New York Giants are further down the list at 30/1 and the Washington Redskins are closer to the bottom at 100/1.
