(The Spread) - Following the release of Aaron Hernandez the Patriots' odds to win the 2014 Super Bowl have dropped.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Patriots now have 17/2 odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII. They were 15/2 to win the Super Bowl before Hernandez was charged with the murder of former semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd last week in Attleboro, Mass.

The reason for the shift in odds is obvious: Tom Brady is down yet another weapon in New England's passing attack. Hernandez caught 51 passes last season and has totaled 175 receptions to go along with 18 touchdowns in his three years with the Pats. Coupled with Rob Gronkowski's injury situation, the release of Hernandez created a huge hole in New England's offense.

Granted, the Patriots did sign free agent Danny Amendola to replace Wes Welker, but injuries forced the former Ram to miss a total of 20 games over the last two seasons. Even if Amendola is able to stay healthy, the collection of Jake Ballard, Daniel Fells and Michael Hoomanawanui don't pose the same threat as Gronkowski and Hernandez did the past three seasons.

The 49ers remain the current favorite to win next season's Super Bowl at 6/1 odds. The Broncos have the next best odds at 13/2 and the Seahawks are currently 8/1 to win next year's NFL title. Following the Patriots' odds of 17/2, the Packers are 12/1, the Falcons are 14/1 and both the Texans and Saints are 18/1, respectively.
