2015 Super Bowl odds: Comparing early XLIX odds to XLVIII odds a year ago

MGM Grand Sports Book

We compare early Super Bowl XLIX odds with last year's early Super Bowl XLVIII odds. The 49ers are near the top of both.

One tradition the 30 non-Super Bowl NFL teams look forward to is the release of the first Super Bowl odds for the following season. They are released as soon as the current Super Bowl is wrapped up, and in fact, sometimes are released before the Super Bowl has even ended.

I posted the new Super Bowl XLIX odds last night, but I wanted to take another look at them with a comparison to Super Bowl odds a year ago. I did not post odds for Super Bowl XLVIII right after the 49ers loss because like everyone else, I was just a little bit despondent. I grabbed the odds below courtesy of the Las Vegas Sun. Both sets of odds are the early Las Vegas Hilton odds.

The highlight of this has to be the fact that the Jacksonville Jaguars and Oakland Raiders have the longest odds for the second straight season. #JustWinBaby!

Imagine if you were an excited Texans or Falcons fan thinking you were getting some decent odds on a potential Super Bowl XLVIII victory? Whoops?

The Kansas City Chiefs did not pay off, but imagine if you were a Chiefs fan who would put a few bucks down on them at 50/1 before Alex Smith came to town? The 49ers are at a point right now where you're just not going to get the best odds for betting purposes. That shouldn't stop people from wagering on them, but I'm sure we're all hoping they remain entrenched among the favorites for the foreseeable future.
