2016 Super Bowl Odds: Eagles have a surprisingly good chance to win it all

Would you bet on the Birds?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Bovada released their latest 2015 Super Bowl odds on Tuesday. These are the first Super Bowl odds to be released since the conclusion of the 2015 NFL Draft and the release of the 2015 NFL schedule.

The Eagles last left off with the seventh best chance to win it all. That was back in March, shortly after NFL teams had already made the bulk of their free agent moves. As it turns out, Philadelphia's odds haven't changed: they're still the team with the seventh best shot at 18/1.

The six teams ahead of Philadelphia include, in order: Seattle Seahawks (11/2), Green Bay Packers (7/1), New England Patriots (15/2), Indianapolis Colts (8/1), Dallas Cowboys (10/1), and Denver Broncos (14/1).

Once again, Philadelphia has the fourth best chances out of 16 NFC teams and second best chances out of four NFC East teams. Speaking of the Eagles' division opponents, the New York Giants rank 10th at 25/1 and the Washington Redskins rank 30th at 100/1.


If I was a betting man, I don't think I'd bother placing a wager on the Eagles. They're really just too tough to figure out at this point. The teams have gone through so many changes this offseason, with the most significant one being the addition of Sam Bradford under center. I have no idea what this Eagles team is going to be like. That can be both fun and unnerving.

Philadelphia's 2015 squad has a lot to prove. Having the seventh overall best Super Bowl odds seems surprisingly good for a team with so many question marks.
