Super Bowl 2014 Odds: Seven teams ahead of Falcons

The Falcons hold 18:1 odds to win next year's Super Bowl. Place yer bets, y'all!

Streeter Lecka

The 2012 season is officially over, there's only one thing left to do. Make predictions for 2013! Shortly after the Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night, the oddsmakers wasted no time releasing the lines for Super Bowl XLVIII.

So, who is the front-runner to take home the Lombardi Trophy at MetLife Stadium? None other than Bill Belichick and his beloved band of Patriots. New England is a 7-to-1 favorite to win after finishing 12-4 this past season.

Atlanta opened at 18-to-1, tied with the Steelers and Saints. Seven teams sit in front of the Falcons: the Patriots, 49ers, Broncos, Packers, Texans, Ravens, and Seahawks all have better odds at this point in time.

If Tony Gonzalez does choose to stay around, the Falcons chances of going the distance improve significantly. Obviously a lot will change throughout the course of the offseason, but coming with the seventh-best odds seems about right, considering the general outsider's perspective of this franchise.
