I imagine this offseason has Peyton Manning feeling a lot like Uncle Rico... "Man I wish I could go back in time. I'd take State."
Manning might just get that chance.
The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks are the favorites to appear in Super Bowl XLIX, according to Las Vegas oddsmakers. Both teams share an over/under win total of 11, with the Seahawks just edging the Broncos in the SB odds department.
I think most Broncos fans out there would sign up for this situation. Many maintain that the Seahawks did not get the Broncos' best shot during Super Bowl XLVIII, due to both injury and, perhaps, overconfidence. Resolving the former situation will take luck. Resolving the latter will take applying the lessons learned a year ago. The fans are hungry for that chance, and it would seem the players are too.
Here is a table featuring all 32 teams' odds and over/unders from Las Vegas oddsmakers.
|Team||Over/Under Wins||Super Bowl Odds|
|New England Patriots||10.5||15/2|
|San Francisco 49ers||10.5||15/2|
|Green Bay Packers||10.0||12/1|
|New Orleans Saints||9.5||20/1|
|Kansas City Chiefs||8.0||33/1|
|San Diego Chargers||8.0||40/1|
|New York Giants||7.5||40/1|
|St. Louis Rams||7.5||50/1|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||7.0||50/1|
|New York Jets||7.0||66/1|
It's not often I cheer for the house, but leading up to Super Bowl XLIX, I am definitely hoping Vegas is right.
