Packers & Patriots Enter December as Super Bowl Favorites

After winning nine of their last 10 games SU, the Green Bay Packers enter the final month of the NFL regular season as strong 7/2 favorites in online Super Bowl betting.
The 9-3 Packers opened the season listed among the favorites with Super Bowl odds of 9/1, and head into the final four weeks with a one-game lead over the Detroit Lions in the NFC North division standings.
The New England Patriots join the Packers as this season’s leading Super Bowl picks. The 9-3 Pats are coming off a tough 26-21 loss to Green Bay in a potential Super Bowl XLIX preview. Despite the loss, which ended a seven-game SU win streak and a 6-1 ATS run, New England maintains solid Super Bowl odds of 15/4.
The Denver Broncos remain in the mix of favorites, pegged at 17/4. While the 9-3 Broncos start December atop the AFC West, they have been less than dominant at times this season, just 2-3 ATS in their last five and 6-6 ATS on the season.
The 8-4 Seattle Seahawks round out the top tier of favorites, 13/2 in Super Bowl 2015 betting. Following a shaky start, the Seahawks are 5-1 SU in their last six, and a 5/7 bet to win the NFC West despite trailing Arizona for most of the season.
One of the biggest movers on this season’s Super Bowl odds has been the Philadelphia Eagles. After making an early playoff exit last season, the Eagles opened with attractive 20/1 odds in Super Bowl betting.
The Eagles flew to a 5-1 SU and ATS start, shaking last season’s reputation as a team that could not win at home with six straight wins at home. Philly rocketed to 10/1 in late September before falling back to 16/1 after being ousted from first place in the NFC East by the surging Dallas Cowboys.
However, Philadelphia came out on top in a Thanksgiving Day showdown with the Cowboys, winning 33-10 to reclaim the division lead, and head into Week 14 perched at 12/1.
Conversely, the Saints have seen their Super Bowl odds plummet after opening their campaign deadlocked with the Packers at 9/1. New Orleans stumbled to a 2-4 start, frustrating bettors with four SU and ATS road losses, and saw their odds quickly tumble to 25/1.
Things got worse for the 5-7 Saints who suffered three straight SU losses on a recent homestand. New Orleans rebounded with a strong 35-32 win over Pittsburgh in Week 13 to reclaim a share of top spot in the weak NFC South, but enter December at a distant 28/1 in Super Bowl betting.
Other notables in Super Bowl betting include the Indianapolis Colts, holding steady at 18/1. The 8-4 Lions have dropped to 25/1, after peaking at 16/1 in mid-November.
Five teams join the Saints at 28/1, including the NFC West-leading Cardinals and AFC North-leading Cincinnati Bengals, along with the Cowboys, San Diego Chargers and San Francisco 49ers.
Four AFC Wild Card contenders follow at 50/1, including the Steelers, Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs and Miami Dolphins, while the Cleveland Browns have slipped to 100/1.
With tough contests ahead against Denver, Green Bay and New England, the surprising Buffalo have fallen to a distant 200/1 in Super Bowl betting.
