    • email print
  • The Patriots and 49ers have the best early odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII, as released by LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino) on Jan. 14.
    New England (6-1) Another offseason with a sour taste in their mouths after a playoff exit.
    San Francisco (8-1) Heading to the Super Bowl for first time in 18 years with a great young QB, defense.
    Denver Broncos (8-1) Won’t question Peyton in 2013, but Denver figures to have tougher schedule.
    Green Bay Packers (10-1) Loss to 49ers puts offseason focus on improving the defense.
    Seattle Seahawks (10-1) Ahead of most teams with their talent at QB, RB and in the secondary.
    Houston Texans (12-1) Have made great strides, but Patriots showed how far away Houston is.
    Atlanta Falcons (15-1) Like the 2012 season, Falcons not getting a ton of early respect from Vegas.
    Pittsburgh Steelers (15-1) Could be a much different Steelers team after disappointing 2012.
    New Orleans Saints (15-1) With Sean Payton back, bounty stuff over, Saints are on the upswing.
    Baltimore Ravens (20-1) A new Ravens team with the pendulum shifting to the offense.
    New York Giants (20-1) Still have Eli, Cruz and JPP, but not a ton of confidence from the public.
    Chicago Bears (30-1) If Marc Trestman can get the best out of Jay Cutler, watch out for Chicago.
    Cincinnati Bengals (30-1) Back-to-back playoff appearances, but still no postseason win since 1990.
    Dallas Cowboys (30-1) How many more chances will Romo have to prove he can win the big one?
    San Diego Chargers (30-1) Like Romo, Cutler, a Super Bowl appearance continues to elude Rivers.
    Washington Redskins (30-1) Hard to put much early faith in Redskins with RG3’s knee in mind.
    Detroit Lions (40-1) A lot to fix this offseason, but still have the Stafford-to-Megatron connection.
    Indianapolis Colts (40-1) Sky’s the limit if the 2012 rookie class all takes that Year Two leap.
    Minnesota Vikings (40-1) Don’t have to worry about AP’s knee, it’s the QB position that’s a concern.
    Carolina Panthers (40-1) Finished 2012 strong, we’ll see how offense looks without Chudzinski.
    New York Jets (50-1) New coordinators, new GM, same Mark Sanchez, though.
    Philadelphia Eagles (50-1) Got their man in Chip Kelly; let’s see if he’s a Harbaugh or Saban.
    St. Louis Rams (50-1) Plenty of positives from 2012 season; crucial year coming up for Bradford.
    Page 2 of 2 - Miami Dolphins (50-1) Plenty of cap room, draft picks for Miami to improve this offseason.
    Tampa Bay Buccaneers (50-1) Solid young nucleus, but pressure is squarely on Josh Freeman.
    Cleveland Browns (50-1) Turner and Horton give Chudzinski quite the pair of coordinators.
    Kansas City Chiefs (50-1) How much time will Andy Reid need to turn the Chiefs around?
    Tennessee Titans (100-1) Clearly not a lot of confidence in a Jake Locker-led Titans team.
    Buffalo Bills (100-1) Brand new staff hopes to get the most out of a big-name defensive line.
    Arizona Cardinals (100-1) Bruce Arians inherits a solid defense, but a host of questions on offense.
    Oakland Raiders (150-1) Cap issues remain, but at least Oakland gets a first-round pick this year.
    Jacksonville Jaguars (150-1) Gus Bradley’s first question for 2013 — who will start at quarterback?
