Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are the only mainstays from the Patriots Super Bowl win over the Rams 12 years ago, but like they were on Feb. 4, 2002, Brady and Belichick remain among the favorites in Vegas for another Super Bowl title.

The Patriots are 14/1 favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy a year from now, according to Bovada. Those are the fourth best odds in the NFL. New England trails only the defending champion Seahawks (9/2), the NFC runner-up 49ers (15/2) and the defending AFC champion Broncos (8/1).


The Pats’ AFC East counterparts have longshot odds, as the Jets and Dolphins have 50/1 odds and the Bills are at 75/1.

Coming off their AFC Championship game loss to the Ravens a year ago, the Patriots actually had the best odds in Vegas to win in the 2013 season. The Pats led the way with 7/1 odds, according to pregame.com. The Broncos were right behind with 8/1 odds. If you bet the Seahawks in February 2013, you did quite well for yourself as Seattle had 16/1 odds to win the title at the time, seventh best. At the time, the Texans had 14/1 odds and the Falcons had 18/1 odds. Those two teams went a combined 6-26 during the 2013 regular season.

While the Seahawks are heavy favorites to defend their title, no team has won back-to-back titles in the NFL since the Patriots accomplished the feat nine years ago.

Bovada’s complete 2014 odds:

Seattle Seahawks — 9/2
San Francisco 49ers – 15/2
Denver Broncos – 8/1
New England Patriots – 14/1
Green Bay Packers – 16/1
