Now that we are in the middle of July, the 2014 NFL season is right around the corner. Now is the perfect time to take a look at who might have the best odds to win the Super Bowl early in 2015. There is a lot of parity in the NFL, so theoretically quite a few teams will have a legitimate shot. Here is a look at 2 favorites with the best shot, and then one team with longer odds that could surprise some people.

Denver Broncos

Yes, anyone who watched the last Super Bowl knows that this team was thoroughly embarrassed by the Seattle Seahawks by a score of 43-8. However, this team is hoping to come back as strong as ever thanks to some moves they made during the offseason. Instead of sitting back and relying on an outstanding regular season record last year, they are ready to make another run.

Peyton Manning put up record-setting numbers in fantasy football last year, but even he can't do it all alone. Denver know that they are going to need to make some adjustments this year in order to beat the best teams.

In free agency, they were extremely active by signing notables such as DeMarcus Ware, TJ Ward and Aqib Talib. They also feel like they had a very successful draft to replace everyone they lost.

Manning is getting up there in age, and obviously taking a chance on Denver with an aging quarterback comes with some risks. However, they breezed to the playoffs last year, and they should be a virtual lock in 2014. Making the playoffs is half the battle, and they could close the deal this year.

 

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers were hit hard by injuries last year, but they still somehow found a way to make the playoffs in 2013. If they can stay completely healthy this year, they might just be the best team in the NFL.

Everything starts with fantasy football standout Aaron Rodgers at quarterback. Last year was the 1st time he really suffered a serious injury as he injured his collarbone late in the year. He obviously needs to stay healthy and be 100% going into the playoffs, but anyone looking to pick them to win it all has to have a little bit of confidence in the fact that he has won before.

For the 1st time in his career, Rodgers is finally going to have a dependable running back to hand the ball off to as well. Eddie Lacy really stepped up as the season moves along in 2013, and he should have an outstanding sophomore campaign.

The defense continues to get better and better each year, and Green Bay has a perfect mix of youngsters and veterans. This seems like a team that very well could win another Super Bowl for the franchise.


Cincinnati Bengals

Given the fact that they have made the playoffs in 4 of the last 5 seasons, some might think that Cincinnati is not exactly a true longshot to win the Super Bowl. However, they have exactly 0 playoff wins since 1990, and they would need to get that monkey off their back to even think about taking home the trophy.

On paper, they have more than a puncher's chance to take home the Super Bowl trophy. For starters, they have a very balanced team in every facet of the game. They put up outstanding fantasy football numbers in the regular season thanks to a passing game headlined by AJ Green. Jeremy Green and Giovani Bernard are hungry and talented running backs who should be able to put up decent numbers as well. To top it all off, the defense is strong and might be even stronger in 2014 thanks to drafting pretty well over the summer. They are getting pretty good odds at this point time, so they might be worth a look.
