Let's look ahead to next year's Super Bowl, okay? Ever since losing in the NFC Championship Game, the Arizona Cardinals have been seen as a potential favorite to make it to the Super Bowl for next season. The Vegas odds still show that. But after adding Robert Nkemdiche, Evan Boehm and others in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Cardinals' odds have improved.

According to Bovada, the Cardinals' odds for being Super Bowl 51 champs improved from 16/1 to 14/1. They started the offseason at 14/1 and dropped a bit after free agency.

They have the sixth best odds and the fourth best in the NFC. The New England Patriots have the best odds at 7/1, even with Tom Brady currently set to miss the first four games of the season. The Seattle Seahawks are now 8/1, followed by the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers at 10/1, the Carolina Panthers at 11/1 and then the Cardinals.

New England and Seattle saw their odds improve with the draft like the Cardinals. Carolina's went down and Green Bay and Pittsburgh saw their odds stay the same.
