Super Bowl 50 Odds (a.k.a. How Early is too Early?)

Another NFL season is in the books and, all of a sudden, every NFL team is alive in the chase for the Super Bowl. The 2016 edition of the will take place at Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, on February 7, 2016.

Sure, that’s still more than a year away, and a lot will happen between now and then to shape the league’s 32 franchises. But that won’t stop us from taking a very early look at the odds for Super Bowl L. (Oh, that looks weird. No wonder the league is abandoning Roman numerals next year.)

Below, you can find the odds for all 32 teams to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in Super Bowl 50, the odds of a Seahawks/Patriots rematch, and the most likely entertainers for the next halftime show.

Odds on who will perform at halftime of Super Bowl 50

Coldplay: 5/1

  • Rumor has it that the British superstars were in the running for the Super Bowl XLIX halftime show. With the NFL constantly looking to gain traction in the UK, Chris Martin and company are early favorites to headline the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, in our view.

Jay-Z/Kanye West: 8/1

  • Isn’t it only fair that Mr. Knowles gets a turn, too, one of these years? And you know that, if you ask for Jay-Z, Kanye’s coming along (or vice versa).

Carrie Underwood: 9/1

  • The NFL’s darling and consummate good-girl would be a welcome choice for a league trying to revamp its image.

Adele: 10/1

  • The NFL likes to capitalize on the zeitgeist. Adele is likely to be releasing an album this year, and it’s likely to be the most popular of 2015. On top of that, Adele is another Brit who could gain the NFL more market-share in the UK. She isn’t known for the theatrics that tend to characterize the Super Bowl halftime show, however.

Field: 1/2
