(The Spread) - Following the trade last week for quarterback Matt Flynn, the Oakland Raiders remain long shots to win the 2014 Super Bowl.
On April 1 the Raiders acquired Flynn from the Seahawks in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2014 and a conditional late-round selection in 2015. Oakland increased Flynn's 2013 base salary from $5.25 million to $6.5 million and guaranteed all of it, although the team also decreased his 2014 salary from $6.25 million to $5 million, none of which is guaranteed.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv , currently list the Raiders as 100/1 long shots to win next year's Super Bowl. The Cardinals, Bills and Titans all have the same 100/1 odds, respectively.
Meanwhile, the 49ers remain favored to win next season's NFL title at 13/2 odds. The Broncos and Patriots are both 15/2, respectively, while the Seahawks are 9/1 and the Packers are 12/1. The Falcons are 14/1, while the Ravens, Texans and Saints are all 18/1, respectively.
The Raiders have the third overall pick in this month's NFL draft and there have been different players mocked to them at that selection. Some draftniks have Oakland taking quarterback Geno Smith, while others have Florida's Sharrif Floyd slated to go No. 3 overall. Right now it's anyone's guess what GM Reggie McKenzie will do.
