- A brand new National Football League season is finally upon us.

Who have oddsmakers considered the most likely Super Bowl champ come early 2016? That’d be Green Bay at 11/2. Other strong contenders according to the Futures board are Seattle (13/2), Philadelphia (17/2) and Indianapolis (17/2). Jacksonville and Tennessee have been pegged as the biggest Super Bowl longshots at 200/1.
