Super Bowl 2013: Date, Location and Futures Odds for Every Team

Wes ODonnell@wesodonnellFeatured ColumnistFebruary 5, 2012

We don't have a Super Bowl champion yet this year, but the 2013 Super Bowl odds have already been doled out.

The New England Patriots and New York Giants have two very different sets of odds, and the last time a team made it to back-to-back Super Bowls was in 2004-2005 when the Pats won their last ring.

It simply isn't very common for Super Bowl teams to make it back year after year.

Here's a look at where, when and who might be playing for it all next year.


Where: Mercedes Benz Superdome, New Orleans, La.

When: Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013



Top Contenders

Green Bay Packers: 5-1

New Orleans Saints: 6-1

New England Patriots: 8-1

All teams are deserving.



Baltimore Ravens: 12-1

Philadelphia Eagles: 12-1

Pittsburgh Steelers: 12-1

Houston Texans: 15-1

The only team in the group that deserves to be here is the Ravens. The Eagles are a mess, the Steelers are aging and the Texans are simply too new to trust.


Playoff Teams

Atlanta Falcons: 20-1

Dallas Cowboys: 20-1

Detroit Lions: 20-1

New York Giants: 20-1

New York Jets: 20-1

San Francisco 49ers: 20-1

Tennessee Titans: 20-1

This section is out of control. For starters, the Titans don't belong here at all. The Jets talk a big game, but they're not worth talking about as contenders. The Cowboys have won one postseason game in the last 15 years and the Falcons cannot win a meaningful game that isn't played in Atlanta.

The Lions, 49ers and Giants (obviously) are the only three teams who warrant consideration. Expect the Giants' odds to improve so jump on them now.


Borderline Teams

Chicago Bears: 30-1

Carolina Panthers: 40-1

Cincinnati Bengals: 40-1

Indianapolis Colts: 40-1

With all the latest on Peyton and the Colts we can expect their number to drop considerably. The Bears, if healthy, are actually a solid play while the Panthers and Bengals are teams that could surprise or slump.



Arizona Cardinals: 50-1

Buffalo Bills: 50-1

Denver Broncos: 50-1

Kansas City Chiefs: 50-1

Miami Dolphins: 50-1

Minnesota Vikings: 50-1

Oakland Raiders: 50-1

Seattle Seahawks: 50-1

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 50-1

These are all teams we can expect the most change from. Whether it be at quarterback, head coach or as an overall team, all these ball clubs will have a lot of change. The best bets for success would come from Miami, Denver and Kansas City though.


Out of the Question Teams

Cleveland Browns: 100-1

Jacksonville Jaguars: 100-1

St. Louis Rams: 100-1

Washington Redskins: 100-1

If the Washington Redskins legitimately land Peyton Manning this number will jump considerably. They're the only team even worth talking about here.
