Green Bay at New England Preseason Week 1 Odds, Analysis & TV Info

Will An AFC or NFC Team Win Super Bowl 49?

With the NFL Wildcard Round this weekend, football handicappers should take a look at the updated Super Bowl 49 odds. New England and Denver in the AFC and Seattle and Green Bay in the NFC, are the four favorites to win the Super Bowl.

Below is Super Bowl odds for all of the teams in this year’s NFL Playoffs. The odds are broken down by conference. As to be expected the favorites are the teams with home field advantage throughout, New England and Seattle.

Which AFC Team Has The Best Odds To Win The Super Bowl 49?

New England Patriots +225 – Tom Brady has, once again, a plethora of weapons in tight-ends Tim Wright and Rob Gronkowski and Julian “I’ll Catch Anything Thrown My Way” Edelman. The rushing attack is solid as well and home field advantage gives the Pats a huge edge.

Denver Broncos +550 – The Broncos’ offense isn’t nearly as explosive as it used to be because the offensive line is having trouble containing opposing pass rushers. The defense is very good, but could be in some trouble stopping the run with linebacker Brandon Marshall and safety T.J. Ward both questionable going into the playoffs.

Pittsburgh Steelers +1300 – Le’Veon Bell may or may not be able to play against Baltimore this weekend. Without one of the best running backs in the NFL, the Steelers’ offense might have trouble moving the ball on the ground. Then again, Big Ben Roethlisberger to Antonio Brown has been the QB to WR to fear pair this season.

Indianapolis Colts +3000 – Andrew Luck is a great quarterback, but the Colts have no rushing attack and the defense isn’t playing nearly as well as it was earlier in the season. The Colts are too one-dimensional to garner serious attention to win the Super Bowl.

Baltimore Ravens +4000 – The Ravens give up a lot of yards through the air in order to stop opposing teams from rushing the ball. That could spell doom for Baltimore because they play the flying act of Big Ben and Brown from the great steel town of Pittsburgh this weekend.

Cincinnati Bengals +5000 – Andy Dalton will be without his top wide receiver, A.J. Green, and the defense gives up a lot of yards. Still, running back Jeremy Hill might be enough for the Bengals to upset the Colts and move into the Divisional Playoff Round. After that, Cincy’s season should end.

Which AFC Team Has The Best Odds To Win The Super Bowl 49?

Seattle Seahawks +225 – What’s not to like? Running back Marshawn Lynch is in full beast mode while the defense is peaking at the right time. Coach Carroll has the Seahawks ready to repeat as Super Bowl champs.

Green Bay Packers +500 – At +500, the Packers represent the biggest underlay on the board. Green Bay simply doesn’t play as well on the road as it does at home. There’s a good chance that the Pack has to be battle Seattle on CitiField…that’s if the Packers beat the Cowboys or Lions at home in the Divisional Round.

Dallas Cowboys +700 – Dallas gets a pass versus Detroit in the Wildcard Round because Ndamukong Suh was an idiot and stepped on Aaron Rodgers’ ankle and won’t play this weekend. Then, they travel to Lambeau to play Green Bay. Dallas can upset Green Bay at Lambeau.

Carolina Panthers +3500 – This is the dog to watch. Carolina looked like the best team in the NFL when destroying Atlanta 34 to 3 in Week 17. The Panthers have a peaking defense, a top notch rushing game, and suddenly a good enough QB to go far in the playoffs.

Detroit Lions +5000 – Without Ndamukong Suh, Detroit has no shot of beating Dallas this weekend. The lack of a true rushing attack has hurt the Lions on offense all season long. It figures to help end their season soon.

Arizona Cardinals +7500 – There’s no way to win the NFC, much less the Super Bowl, without a true starting QB. Trent Dilfer versus Kerry Collins was way back in 2001. Since then, more often than not, quarterbacks with the last name Brady, Brees, Manning, Roethlisberger or Rogers have taken home the Lombardi Trophy. Is it really a possibility for Ryan Lindley to lead AZ to a Super Bowl victory?  Nope.
