We’ve still got a couple of months until the 2013-14 NFL Season kicks off. However, that hasn’t stopped GTBets.eu from releasing lines on NFL futures and prop bets.
Among the most intriguing bets are odds on which team will win the 2014 Super Bowl. All 32 teams have been given odds on winning next year’s Super Bowl, and there’s quite a wide range from top to bottom. You can see this by looking at the best 5 and worst 5 clubs in terms of odds below. Also, be sure to read about free agent wide receiver Chad Johnson’s insane treadmill run.
Top 5 Teams (2014 Super Bowl Champion Odds)
1. Denver Broncos – 9-to-2
2. San Francisco 49ers – 13-to-2
3. New England Patriots – 15-to-2
4. Seattle Seahawks – 8-to-1
5. Houston Texans – 10-to-1
Bottom 5 Teams
T1. Arizona Cardinals – 150-to-1
T1. Jacksonville Jaguars – 150-to-1
3. Oakland Raiders – 125-to-1
T4. Buffalo Bills – 100-to-1
T4. Cleveland Browns – 100-to-1
T4. Tennessee Titans – 100-to-1
Interestingly enough, the defending champion Baltimore Ravens don’t rank in the top five among teams with the best odds to win the title. But their 25-to-1 odds of winning the 2014 Super Bowl do rank within the top half at least.
Another noteworthy point is how the Denver Broncos are currently being given the top chance to win next year by GTBets. Of course this makes sense because they had the NFL’s best regular season record at 13-3. But they lost a narrow double-overtime game (38-35) to the Baltimore Ravens in the Divisional round of the playoffs. Ending the year in such a disappointing fashion will no doubt have the Broncos fired up for the upcoming season.
Aside from the 2014 Super Bowl futures, GTBets has a number of other interesting options. People can bet on the over/under wins for each team, who’ll win the AFC Championship, who’ll take the NFC Championship, and which teams will win each division.

Chad Johnson runs Blazing 24 MPH on Treadmill
Chad Johnson hasn’t played in the NFL since 2011, when he managed a disappointing 15 catches for 276 yards and one TD. Plus he recently spent 30 days in jail for head-butting his ex-wife, reality TV star Evelyn Lozada. That said, you might think he’s ready to quit this football thing and start exploring other possibilities.
However, retirement is the furthest thing from Johnson’s mind since he’s been working hard in hopes of making an NFL roster. And he showed this hard work off by running at a pace of 24 MPH on a treadmill. Have a look at the video:
Johnson is a little ways off the world record of 27.49 MPH, which was set by Usain Bolt when he broke the 100 meters record with a time of 9.58 seconds. Plus, as you can see from the video, he only ran at 24 MPH for a few seconds.
But in his defense, the treadmill was at a 2.5% elevation, and this is after all, a treadmill. Not too many people are willing to risk running their fastest on a rubberized belt going at a dangerously high speed.
Crazy treadmill stunts aside, Johnson will be hoping to land on an NFL team again this season. He got cut by the Miami Dolphins in the 2012 preseason following his arrest for the aforementioned head-butting incident. This was televised on HBO’s Hard Knocks, and you can see the footage below:
