With the start of the 2012 NFL season just over 48 hours away, we are going to take a final look at what the Super Bowl XLVII betting odds look like going in, and who oddsmakers have tabbed as the top favorites to win it all.
These lines were first formed following the New York Giants win over the New England Patriots last season.
Since then, we have certainly seen a shift in the odds, though not near the movement that we can most likely expect during the course of this season.
Whether it was Peyton Manning joining the Denver Broncos, Brandon Marshall signing with the Chicago Bears, Tim Tebow coming over to the Jets, or any other offseason move, all can have an effect one way or the other in terms of Futures odds.
Without further adieu, here is the final look at the 2012-13 Super Bowl Betting Odds going into the season.
The New England Patriots recently overtook the Green Bay Packers for the top favorites to win Super Bowl XLVII. It had been the Packers who were atop the preseason betting lines throughout the majority of the offseason. But the Patriots have been tabbed as the favorites, going off at 11/2 to win it all. New England won the AFC last season, but came up short in the Super Bowl to the Giants.
But the gap between the Patriots and Packers is small. Green Bay is going off at 6/1 on the betting lines to win a second Super Bowl in three seasons.
A pair of NFC teams come in next on the line. The San Francisco 49ers won 13 games en route to a berth in the NFC championship game last season. And actually, the 49ers squandered a great chance to reach the Super Bowl. But a new season breeds new opportunity, and a lot of people are on the San Francisco bandwagon coming into this season, with the 49ers set at 9/1.
As much of a pleasant surprise as the 49ers were last season, the Philadelphia Eagles were about as big of a disappointment as any. The Eagles were picked as NFC favorites and failed to even make the playoffs. But expectations are high once again going into this season, as Philadelphia has been set at 11/1.
The Houston Texans come into 2012 off of their first playoff appearance and AFC South division title in franchise history. And oddsmakers expect that success to spill over. The Texans round out the top-five favorites to win Super Bowl XLVII, going off at 12/1.
Below you can find the full field betting odds to win the Super Bowl as available at Bovada, so if we didn’t mention your favorite team in the top-five you can find them there and how they stack up to the rest of the NFL.
The 2012-13 NFL season kicks off on Wednesday with the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys.
