50/1. Those were the odds Vegas gave the Philadelphia Eagles of winning the Super Bowl at the start of the 2017 season. Now that the Eagles have defied the odds to bring home their first Super Bowl championship, the question is who could do the same thing next season?
Well, if you go by the 50/1 odds theory, the Cardinals, Giants, Titans, and Redskins could be next in line. All four of those teams opened up at 50/1 to win next years Super Bowl in Atlanta. Or how about the Lions and Ravens at 40/1? The Dolphins, by the way, are at 66/1 odds to win it all next year.
It’s never easy to pick the right longshot to win it all, especially in February. Maybe it could be someone in the middle of the pack like the Jaguars at 28/1 or the Raiders at 33/1 in Jon Gruden’s first year back with the team.
Of course, you could always go with one of the favorites. The Patriots are, after all, favored to win it all next year. Or you could go with the return of Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay is 9/1. If you think the Eagles are going to repeat, you can also grab them at 9/1 odds. But the real challenge lies in finding that diamond in the rough. Who could it be?
