While Sunday’s conclusion of Sunday’s Super Bowl 47 showdown between the now-champion Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers brought the 2012 NFL season to a quite thrilling end – pro football betting enthusiasts across the globe can already get their wagering started for the 2013 NFL season thanks to the recently-released – and seriously value-packed – NFL Futures Odds surround the winner of next season’s Super Bowl matchup.

This look at each NFL team’s odds to bring home the bacon in 2013 will help avid NFL gridiron gamblers separate the favorites and top title contenders from those teams with slight lesser chances – and the flat-out pretenders.

With that said, let’s get started.

Super Bowl 48 Futures Odds

The Favorites – These four teams are the clear-cut favorites to cash in against the Super Bowl 48 predictions odds and hoist the 2014 Vince Lombardi Super Bowl Trophy.

New England Patriots +$600 (6 to 1)

The Patriots are a legitimate Super Bowl contender every season – enough said!

San Francisco 49ers +$700 (7 to 1)

The San Francisco 49ers have reached the NFC title and lost the Super Bowl, in the last two seasons. I believe Frisco should have been installed the No.1 favorite to win Super Bowl 48 next season.

Denver Broncos +$800 (8 to 1)

I’ve seen just about enough of Peyton Manning going 13-3 in the regular season – only to flame out like a lit match in a windstorm in the postseason!

Seattle Seahawks +$1,200 (12 to 1)

While I believe the Niners should be the No. 1 favorite to win Super Bowl 48 next season, I also genuinely believe that the Seattle Seahawks were the best team in the NFC this season – as strange as that sounds. A run to the NFC title game next season – or an appearance in Super Bowl 48 – wouldn’t surprise me in the least NFL gamblers!

Legitimate Title Contenders

Green Bay Packers +$1,000 (10 to 1)
Pittsburgh Steelers +$1,400 (14 to 1)
Atlanta Falcons +$1,600 (16 to 1)
New Orleans Saints +$1,600 (16 to 1)
New York Giants +$2,000 (20 to 1)

Analysis: The Packers are a legitimate title contender every year and will be right back in the mix next season – if they can stay healthy that is. The Steelers have been plagued by untimely injuries the last two seasons – but they’re still a legitimate title contender every year. The Falcons and Saints have explosive offense, but need to prove they can stop the opposition next season while the New York Giants have a slew of experienced veterans that should be quite hungry next season, stating with elite quarterback Eli Manning.

It Could Happen!

Baltimore Ravens +$1,400 (14 to 1)
Cincinnati Bengals +$3,000 (30 to 1)
Minnesota Vikings +$4,000 (40 to 1)

Analysis: The Baltimore Ravens will be a legitimate title contender next season, but winning it all for the second consecutive season is out of the question. Two straight playoff appearances tell me that the Cincinnati Bengals are very legitimate – even if you didn’t know it. The Minnesota Vikings should be back in contention next season if quarterback Christian Ponder can continue improving so teams don’t key on 2013 league MVP winner Adrian Peterson.

Pretenders – These teams look good on paper but will almost assuredly; find a way to underachieve in 2013.

Houston Texans +$1,000 (10 to 1)
Dallas Cowboys +$3,000 (30 to 1)
Chicago Bears +$3,000 (30 to 1)
Detroit Lions +$4,000 (40 to 1)
Philadelphia Eagles +$5,000 (50 to 1)

Analysis: The underachieving Houston Texans probably need to part ways with head coach Gary Kubiak at this point. The Dallas Cowboys will continue to be a mess as long as Jerry Jones and Tony Romo are in the Big D. The Bears made an unwise move by firing former head coach Lovie Smith. The Eagles could surprise with an explosive offense under first-time head coach Chip Kelly – or they could flame out like the Human Torch under their new leader.

On Their Way Up! – All of these teams are clearly headed in the right direction heading into this offseason.

Washington Redskins +$3,000 (30 to 1)
Indianapolis Colts +$4,000 (40 to 1)
Miami Dolphins +$5,000 (50 to 1)
Cleveland Browns +$6,000 (60 to 1)
St. Louis Rams +$5,000 (50 to 1)
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +$6,000 (60 to 1)

Analysis: RG3, Andrew Luck – and the lesser ballyhooed Ryan Tannehill, Brandon Weeden and Sam Bradford all have given their respective franchises reasons to hope, though some clearly greater than others.

No Way Jose! – Ya’ know NFL gamblers; it’s not going to happen for any of these teams next season!

Arizona Cardinals +$10,000 (100 to 1)
Buffalo Bills +$10,000 (100 to 1)
Carolina Panthers +$5,000 (50 to 1)
Jacksonville Jaguars +$15,000 (150 to 1)
Kansas City Chiefs +$5,000 (50 to 1)
New York Jets +$5,000 (50 to 1)
Oakland Raiders +$15,000 (150 to 1)
San Diego Chargers +$4,000 (40 to 1)
Tennessee Titans +$10,000 (100 to 1)


Analysis: Bruce Arians could very well turn the culture around in Arizona, but every other team on this list has massive problems they need to address immediately. The fact of the matter is that all of these teams suffer from some sort of team-wide dysfunction and most certainly will not cash in on their bankroll-boosting Super Bowl 48 predictions odds.
