NFL previewThe National Football League is set to kick off for the 94th time this Thursday September 5 when the Denver Broncos host the Baltimore Ravens. The teams are currently cutting players and getting down to their 53-man rosters in preparation for the big day. This season looks to be one of the most open in recent years as there are several teams that have a legitimate shot at winning the Super Bowl and this is reflected in the current NFL betting lines.

The season will wind up with the championship game on February 2 at the Met Life Stadium, which is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Most bookmakers around the globe have the AFC’s Broncos as the favourites at the moment and they feel Super Bowl XLVIII will belong to them with the odds being 6/1.

However, the bookmakers also feel the Broncos are going to have some stiff competition this year from the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers. Both of these clubs belong to the strong NFC West and one of them could end up meeting Denver in the Super Bowl. The 49ers, who lost the championship tilt to the Baltimore Ravens last season, are listed at 7/1 to win the Super Bowl with the Seahawks right behind them at 15/2.

Sticking with the NFC, the third favourite team to win it all is the consistently strong Green Bay Packers with odds of 13/1. The Atlanta Falcons aren’t too far behind 15/1 followed by the New Orleans Saints who are pegged at 20/1. After Atlanta, the rest of the NFC clubs are more or less grouped in together and are considered to be long shots to take the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

For instance, the Dallas Cowboys, Chicago Bears and New York Giants are all listed at 22/1 and the Washington Redskins are a longer shot at 33/1. If you’re really looking for an unexpected team to hoist the title we have the Philadelphia Eagles, Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, St. Louis Rams and Tampa Bay Buccaneers all at 50/1.

Patriots, AFC Favorites

In the AFC, after the Broncos, the team with the best chance to be crowned Super Bowl champions is the New England Patriots who are penciled in at the moment at 17/2. The Houston Texans are next at 18/1 and perhaps surprisingly to some fans the Ravens, last year’s champions are listed at 25/1. Also at 25/1 are the Pittsburgh Steelers of the AFC North Division and they’re followed up by the Cincinnati Bengals at 33/1.

The rest of the AFC teams are longer shots as the San Diego Chargers, Indianapolis Colts, Kansas City Chiefs, San Diego Chargers and Miami Dolphins all come in at 50/1. However, just because the some of these teams are considerable long shots it doesn’t mean they don’t have a chance. Anything can happen in the 16-game regular season and things can become even more unpredictable once the playoffs get underway on January 4.

This is why some people are going to bet on the real long shots in the NFL this season. The New York Jets are currently saddled with odds of winning the Super Bowl at 100/1, with the Arizona Cardinals coming in at 125/1. Other weak sisters in the league this year are the Cleveland Browns, Buffalo Bills, and Tennessee Titans, who are all listed at 150/1. However, the longest odds of all belong to the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars who are both priced at 250/1.

When all is said and done, look for Denver to take on the Houston Texans for the AFC title and the Green Bay Packers to duke it out with the Seattle Seahawks for the NFC crown. The likely Super Bowl combatants will be Seattle and Denver with the Broncos edging them for the championship.
