Super Bowl Betting Lines Updated at the Sportsbooks

hi-res-461842293-cornerback-richard-sherman-of-the-seattle-seahawks_crop_northWith the opening of National Football League training camps just days away the Seattle Seahawks are pegged as 13/2 favorites in Super Bowl betting odds. The Seahawks are joined as favorites by the Denver Broncos, the team they routed 43-8 to capture their first title at Super Bowl XLVIII.
The Seahawks and Broncos were the top seeds in last season’s playoffs after recording identical 13-3 records. While Denver is the 9/4 favorite to capture the AFC Conference crown, the Seahawks are deadlocked at 4/1 with the San Francisco 49ers to win the NFC Conference title.
The 49ers rode a six-game winning streak into the playoffs last season, and forced Seattle to overcome a 17-10 third quarter deficit in the NFC Conference championship to earn their Super Bowl berth with a 23-17 victory.
Not surprisingly, the Niners closely trail Denver and Seattle in Super Bowl odds at 7/1, and are just behind the Seahawks in odds to win the NFC West at +140. Seattle remains the favorites at +130.
The New England Patriots, who fell 26-16 to Denver in last season’s AFC Conference championship, hold their familiar spot among the favorites in Super Bowl online betting. The Pats are 9/1 in Super Bowl odds and a strong -275 favorite to once again finish atop the AFC East.
Despite their early exit from the playoffs this past winter, dropping a 23-20 decision to San Francisco on Wild Card weekend, the Green Bay Packers maintain strong Super Bowl lines. The Packers round out the Super Bowl betting favorites with odds of 11/1, and are a -110 bet to regain top spot in the NFC North.
However, Green Bay trails the Seahawks and Niners in futures wagering to represent the NFC at Super Bowl XLIX with odds of 13/2.
The New Orleans Saints will be looking to make amends for a poor finish to the 2013 NFL season, when they lost three of their last five regular season games. The Saints continued their disappointing play in the playoffs, hanging on for a 26-24 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Wild Card weekend before being swept aside by Seattle in the NFC Divisional Playoffs.
The Saints enter training camp this month as an EVEN favorite to take the NFC South title in 2014, but are middleweights in Super Bowl online betting with odds of 14/1.
New Orleans are trailed by the Chicago Bears and Indianapolis Colts, both of whom sit at 16/1 in Super Bowl futures wagering.
Led by quarterback Andrew Luck, the Colts put together an 11-5 campaign in 2013 to win the AFC South title for the first time since 2010. Indy enters this season as a solid -160 to repeat as AFC South champs and 7/1 to win the AFC Conference title.
Chicago collapsed down the stretch in 2013, losing five of their last eight to finish 8-8 and out of the playoffs. The Bears trail Green Bay in NFC North betting at +250 and are a 9/1 underdog to capture the NFC Championship.
