Denver Broncos Are Betting Favorite To Win Super Bowl XLVII


The NFL playoffs are among us and the postseason bracke has been set. As we analyze the upcoming match ups for Wild Card weekend, we wanted to first take a look a the odds for Super Bowl XLVII.

Per our friends at Bovada, a Denver Broncos vs. San Francisco 49ers Super Bowl match up is the most favorable. As for your future champion? Odds favor Peyton Manning and the Broncos.

Jimmy Shapiro of Bovada wrote in an email:

“Even though this season we have seen at least five different teams as the favorite to win the Super Bowl, there is no doubt with clinching home field advantage that the Broncos are the clear frontrunner at 3-1.  The Texans who were once at the top of the list have drifted off now at 14-1 and we cannot write a bet on them while some teams who ended the season strong such as Indy, Cincy,  and Washington are taking some long shot money. The Vikings at 35-1, despite being over a touchdown underdog in their Wild Card game against the Packers, right now are the biggest loser for the book if they can somehow win it all. While funny enough, we are in the same situation as last year with the Patriots at 15/4 as the team with the biggest potential win for us.”

Here are the complete Super Bowl odds for each team in the postseason:

Denver Broncos                         3/1

New England Patriots                 15/4

San Francisco 49ers                 6/1

Atlanta Falcons                         7/1

Green Bay Packers                    15/2

Seattle Seahawks                      12/1

Houston Texans                         14/1

Washington Redskins                18/1

Baltimore Ravens                       22/1

Minnesota Vikings                     35/1

Cincinnati Bengals                     45/1

Indianapolis Colts                       45/1

Who do you think should be favored to take home the Lombardi Trophy?
