Eagles' Super Bowl XLIX odds on the rise
Share This Post

The Eagles are making all the right moves.

At least that’s what the latest odds to win Super Bowl XLIX indicate.

Per Kevin Bradley of Bovada, the Eagles’ Super Bowl odds have jumped from 26/1 the day after Super Bowl XLVIII to 18/1, one of the greatest jumps in that span. 

The trade for Darren Sproles, the signings of safety Malcolm Jenkins, cornerback Nolan Carroll, and special teams standouts Chris Maragos and Bryan Braman, as well as the re-signings of core players Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper, Jason Peters and Jason Kelce have earned the backing of bettors.

The Eagles’ perceived success in free agency has garnered them more odds momentum than even the Patriots (14/1 the day after Super Bowl XLVIII; 9/1 now) and the Packers (16/1 to 10/1), two other teams who have made noise in free agency with the signings of Darrelle Revis and Julius Peppers, respectively.

In fact, the Eagles are seeing far more money than their NFC East rivals, with the Cowboys and Giants claiming 40/1 odds and the Redskins having just 50/1 odds to bring home the Lombardi Trophy next season.

Not surprisingly, the Seahawks boast the best odds at 6/1 to repeat as Super Bowl champions.

To show just how far the Eagles have come since a season ago, their odds after the 2013 NFL draft were just 55/1, more than three times their current odds to win it all. The Giants, in contrast, held 20/1 odds at the time.

Some other tidbits:
• The Eagles are the only NFC East team whose odds have improved since Feb. 3.

• The Redskins’ odds worsened more since Feb. 3 than any other NFL team except for the Jets, Jaguars, Raiders and Titans.

• The Eagles’ odds have improved more than any other NFC team since Feb. 3 except for the Vikings, whose odds remain just 66/1.
