Super Bowl XLIX (49) Will Be Played In Arizona, And The Opening Favorites Are The Denver Broncos

Super Bowl XLIX (49) Will Be Played In Arizona, And The Opening Favorites Are The Denver Broncos

Who is going to win Super Bowl XLIX, and who’s in the running? Two sources below have some differences, but they agree on two things, most importantly.

The top four teams are the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, New Orleans Saints and New England Patriots.

And both say it will be the Broncos who win the big one.

But boy do they disagree on some other possibilities. First, though, let’s get a rundown on the three lists below and where they came from.

As with last season’s (2013) early predictions, Sports List of the Day turned again to the Prediction Machine at predictionmachine.com. The folks over at PM have already played out the entire 2014 NFL season – 50,000 times!

The result? Super Bowl win and playoff berth percentages, sorted for all 32 teams in the top two lists, respectively.

The third list are the straight up betting odds out of Las Vegas, from Bovada.
