2011 Super Bowl Odds: NFL Training Camp Edition
We're getting closer and closer to the NFL season. Are you excited yet? I know I am.
With training camp on the horizon, and teams rounding out their rosters, many of us are thinking one thing: who's going to win Super Bowl XLV?
Some people are high on Mark Sanchez and the Jets, who took the playoffs by storm last season and nearly got to the big game.
Others like the Patriots, with Tom Brady and Randy Moss both playing for contracts.
And you can't count out the Vikings either, who were oh-so-close to getting there last season.
Look, I'm not a psychic, but I'm pretty close. Click below to check out every team's odds to bring home the coveted Lombardi trophy.
32. St. Louis Rams
31. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
I absolutely love what Tampa Bay did in the draft. They beefed up their defensive line with Gerald McCoy and Brian Price, and bolstered their receiving corps with Mike Williams and Arrelious Benn.
I’m also a big Josh Freeman fan. But let’s not get it twisted: this is a bottom-of-the-barrel team that won’t win more than a handful of games.
Get your Heat tickets before they sell out, Buc fans.
Odds to win it all: 90 to 1
30. Buffalo Bills
29. Cleveland Browns
28. Detroit Lions
27. Kansas City Chiefs
26. Oakland Raiders
25. Denver Broncos
24. Seattle Seahawks
23. Arizona Cardinals
22. Chicago Bears
21 Jacksonville Jaguars
20. Washington Redskins
19. Miami Dolphins
18. San Francisco 49ers
For the first time in a long time, I feel very confident in saying that the 49ers will make it to the postseason.
Alex Smith looked solid last season, thriving as a starter in the second half of the season. Frank Gore quietly put up quality numbers yet again, and Vernon Davis emerged as an elite NFL tight end.
I like this team, but I don't love them. Winning the NFC West really amounts to nothing once the playoffs start.
The 49ers are a young, growing team, but expect some serious growing pains once the playoffs start.
Odds to win it all: 30 to 1
