The average human (and those outside of the Denver area) is already over and done with Super Bowl 50, but us top sportsbook fans know better than that. We are already anticipating the future winners of Super Bowl LI in 2017 in Houston. So far, several of the best sportsbooks online have already posted their (very) early odds of the favourite teams to win next year’s Vince Lombardi trophy. There some long shots but considering the odds and how these teams are built here are our very special and very premature picks to win next year’s Super Bowl.

First of all the defending Champs Denver Broncos have a lot of uncertainties this coming off season, they are not sure if Peyton Manning will be back next year. But, with all due respect to the Sheriff, he wasn’t THE major factor that took this team all the way. The Broncos’ defense will very likely be back and stronger than ever and perhaps back up QB Brock Osweiler (depending if he doesn’t pursue free agency) could step in to the spotlight and try to bring some much needed life to this Denver offense. According to the average top sportsbook the odds for the Broncos to pull a repeat is +1000.

The Carolina Panthers had their bell rung on Super Bowl 50 and it will be interesting to see if they are going to pick themselves up from the ashes of a near historic season or will the trauma of this Super Bowl loss haunt them. Top sportsbook experts have them with +950 odds to win next years Super Bowl and get their revenge. Carolina has a fantastic young team with enough talent to propel them to several trips to the biggest game of the season. If they are mature enough to get back on the saddle and play that exciting offensive football they played all season long on next season, they are strong candidates.

The Seahawks are a team that will remain in the conversation of Super Bowl candidates for years to come, in part thanks to their great defense and their lethal offense. Marshawn Lynch is questionable for next season, but even without beast mode, the Seahawks are a very aggressive and dangerous team on both sides of the ball. Online sports betting reviews consider them to have a +950 odds of winning the Super Bowl and if they manage to create a good team around Russell Wilson, we might be in for some fireworks in the 2016-2017 season.

As long as Bill Belichick is coaching and Tom Brady is playing the New England Patriots are going to be in the run for the Super Bowl. Next year the patriots not only will they have a strong squad, they will have superstar QB playing at top level, their coaching staff will remain the same and they have a renovated young team with enough talent to take New England all the way. That’s why top sportsbook analysts place them with a +800 odds to be the overall favorites to win it all.
