2014 Super Bowl odds: Chicago Bears at 30/1

If you think it's too early to start thinking about next year's Super Bowl, you need to go back and listen to new HC Marc Trestman's introductory press conference. He's got a day-by-day schedule for the Bears, leading all the way up to February 2, 2014.

If you had to guess as to who is the favorite to win the 2014 Super Bowl (XLVIII), what is the first team that comes to mind? Would it be the defending champion Baltimore Ravens? What about the oh-so-close runner-up San Francisco 49ers?

Nope, it's the New England Patriots. Bill Belichick's crew last won the Super Bowl eight years ago (2005), but they've made a couple of appearances since then as well (2008, 2012). And right now, they are the favorites to hoist the trophy in 2014.

Where do the Chicago Bears land? They currently sit at 30:1, along with the Redskins and Cowboys.

The complete list of current odds is here:

Team Odds Team Odds
New England Patriots 7 to 1 Indianapolis Colts 40 to 1
Denver Broncos 8 to 1 Minnesota Vikings 40 to 1
San Francisco 49ers 8 to 1 San Diego Chargers 40 to 1
Green Bay Packers 10 to 1 Carolina Panthers 50 to 1
Baltimore Ravens 14 to 1 Kansas City Chiefs 50 to 1
Houston Texans 14 to 1 Miami Dolphins 50 to 1
Seattle Seahawks 16 to 1 New York Jets 50 to 1
Atlanta Falcons 18 to 1 Philadelphia Eagles 50 to 1
New Orleans Saints 18 to 1 St. Louis Rams 50 to 1
Pittsburgh Steelers 18 to 1 Tampa Bay Buccaneers 60 to 1
New York Giants 20 to 1 Cleveland Browns 66 to 1
Chicago Bears 30 to 1 Arizona Cardinals 100 to 1
Dallas Cowboys 30 to 1 Buffalo Bills 100 to 1
Washington Redskins 30 to 1 Tennessee Titans 100 to 1
Cincinnati Bengals 35 to 1 Oakland Raiders 150 to 1
Detroit Lions 40 to 1 Jacksonville Jaguars 150 to 1

The other NFC North teams show up at 10:1 (Packers), and 40:1 (Vikings and Lions). The runner-up 49ers sit pretty with the second-best odds at 8:1, and the reigning champion Ravens are at 14:1. We know it can be difficult to repeat in back-to-back seasons (only the Patriots have done so in the last 15 years), so those odds for the Ravens seem about right.

It's probably way too early to look too closely at the odds, what with Free Agency and the Draft still to come, but for now, how do you feel about the current odds?
