Updated Super Bowl XLIX Futures Released

Are you ready for some football? Well, not quite yet by the opening kickoff of the 2014 NFL season is now less than 100 days away. With that date quickly approaching, odds makers have updated their NFC, AFC and Super Bowl futures.

The NFL, according to data supplied by Bovada and sportsbook.com, will kick off its season at CenturyLink Field in the Pacific Northwest when the Green Bay Packers visit the Seattle Seahawks in the first game of the season on Thursday night.

There has not been very much movement on the futures board for the NFL at the top. However, the confidence in the next group of teams has grown. The Bengals, Colts, Saints, Packers and Patriots have all had their prices shortened since the futures numbers were first posted just 24 hours after the Seattle Seahawks won Super Bowl 48.

Cincinnati and Indianapolis have made big moves in particular, according to the futures board supplied by topbet and betonline. The Bengals have moved from 28 to 1 to 20 to 1, while the Colts have moved from 25 to 1 to 17 to 1.

At the same time, optimism has dropped amongst a number of teams sitting in the middle. The Texans, Cardinals, Giants, Falcons, Chargers, Chiefs and Panthers all saw their odds lengthened during the past four months since the end of Super Bowl 48.

This season the Super Bowl will be played in Glendale, Arizona on February 1, 2015. The two teams that will be left standing to compete in Super Bowl XLIX will not be determined for another 7 months, but bettors can take their chances now on a team they feel will be there on February 1.

Seattle remains on top with odds of 5 to 1. Denver has seen its odds shortened very slightly from 11 to 2 to 5 to 1. Out of the top 10, the only team that did not see its odds shortened or lengthened was Seattle.
