Despite some good Draft acquisitions, there was no change among the favorites to dominate the NFL next season. According to Football Betting Center, the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos will finish with the best record in 2014, like last year. After the event of last May 8th at the Radio City Music Hall, Las Vegas unveiled the Odds for win-loss records of each team for the next regular season. Seahawks and Broncos, who played in the Super Bowl XLVIII top the list with 11 wins.

Both finished last season with a 13-3 record. Denver is again the team to beat in the AFC after hiring defensive end DeMarcus Ware, cornerback Aqib Talib and receiver Emmanuel Sanders while Seattle lost receiver Golden Tate and the cornerbacks Brandon Browner and Walter Thurmond. After the champions, the New England Patriots and San Francisco 49ers appear with 10-5.

Both teams ended last year with 12-4 but were defeated on the road in the conference finals. The Green Bay Packers are in fifth place with 10 wins, which would represent an improvement of two compared to last year, while the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts are with 9.5.

Of the other teams that qualified for the Playoffs in 2013, the forecast for the Carolina Panthers, Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers is to win only eight games. The Dallas Cowboys also appears with eight wins, so they could reach five straight seasons without a winning record.

The last time Jason Garrett’s team had a similar run was from 1986 to 1990, when they only won 25 games and lost 54. Despite the arrival of Justin Tuck, LaMarr Woodley, Matt Schaub and the selection of Khalil Mack and Derek Carr, the Oakland Raiders remain near the bottom and are listed with only five wins, one more than last year. The silver and black team could reach 12 straight years without advancing to the playoffs, which would be reason to dismiss Head Coach Dennis Allen.
