As we approach the last week in July of 2014, all of the teams in the NFL have or will soon have their training camps open. The following is a list of the Super Bowl odds for each NFL team for the 2014 season as NFL training camps open.
The Super Bowl for the 2014 NFL season will be played on February 1, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Quite a big difference in geography and climate from the Super Bowl for the 2013 season, which was played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
The earliest team to open its full camp is the Buffalo Bills, who opened camp for all players on July 19. The last NFL team to open its full training camp in 2014 will be the Detroit Lions, who open on July 27.
Should anyone bet a NFL team to win the Super Bowl as NFL training camps open? In general, probably not, as you could likely get pretty much the same odds at the start of the season and avoid taking a position with a team that could suffer a major injury in preseason play.
However, if you see a major discrepancy between what you think a team's chances are for winning the Super Bowl and the odds offered today, you should jump on it because major discrepancies in betting odds can often disappear quickly.
