The odds to win next year's Super Bowl (Super Bowl XLIX, which will be taking place on February 1st, 2015, at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona) have now been released.

To nobody's surprise, this year's two Super Bowl participants (Seattle Seahawks, Denver Broncos) have opened as the favorites.

Here are their odds to win:

Seattle Seahawks, 6/1
Denver Broncos , 6/1

Despite winning the Super Bowl this year, the Seahawks should return more or less intact next year, which has many people predicting another Super Bowl for the team. The Hawks definitely have some pending free agents that they wish to sign (Golden Tate, others), but their nucleus will be fairly intact next season.

The Denver Broncos, on the other hand, are going to have to retool if they want to compete with the likes of the Seahawks and 49ers next season. Assuming that Peyton Manning returns for another year, the Broncos will likely focus on improving their offensive line and building on their running game. The team relied too much on Peyton Manning this past season, and it showed in the Super Bowl.

The next three teams on the list are:

San Francisco 49ers, 7/1
New England Patriots, 10/1
Green Bay Packers, 12/1

The 49ers very narrowly missed out on their trip to the Super Bowl, as they took the Seattle Seahawks right down to the last play of the game. The 49ers and Seahawks will be in a dogfight next year to see who gets home field advantage, and don't be surprised if they square off again in the NFC Championship game.

The Patriots and Packers always have strong teams, and it will be interesting to see what they both do to improve in the offseason.
