Super Bowl XLVIII odds

The Patriots and 49ers have the best early odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII, as released by LVH (Las Vegas Hotel & Casino) on Jan. 14.

New England (6-1) Another offseason with a sour taste in their mouths after a playoff exit.

San Francisco (8-1) Heading to the Super Bowl for first time in 18 years with a great young QB, defense.

Denver Broncos (8-1) Won’t question Peyton in 2013, but Denver figures to have tougher schedule.

Green Bay Packers (10-1) Loss to 49ers puts offseason focus on improving the defense.

Seattle Seahawks (10-1) Ahead of most teams with their talent at QB, RB and in the secondary.

Houston Texans (12-1) Have made great strides, but Patriots showed how far away Houston is.

Atlanta Falcons (15-1) Like the 2012 season, Falcons not getting a ton of early respect from Vegas.

Pittsburgh Steelers (15-1) Could be a much different Steelers team after disappointing 2012.

New Orleans Saints (15-1) With Sean Payton back, bounty stuff over, Saints are on the upswing.

Baltimore Ravens (20-1) A new Ravens team with the pendulum shifting to the offense.

New York Giants (20-1) Still have Eli, Cruz and JPP, but not a ton of confidence from the public.

Chicago Bears (30-1) If Marc Trestman can get the best out of Jay Cutler, watch out for Chicago.

Cincinnati Bengals (30-1) Back-to-back playoff appearances, but still no postseason win since 1990.

Dallas Cowboys (30-1) How many more chances will Romo have to prove he can win the big one?

San Diego Chargers (30-1) Like Romo, Cutler, a Super Bowl appearance continues to elude Rivers.

Washington Redskins (30-1) Hard to put much early faith in Redskins with RG3’s knee in mind.

Detroit Lions (40-1) A lot to fix this offseason, but still have the Stafford-to-Megatron connection.

Indianapolis Colts (40-1) Sky’s the limit if the 2012 rookie class all takes that Year Two leap.

Minnesota Vikings (40-1) Don’t have to worry about AP’s knee, it’s the QB position that’s a concern.

Carolina Panthers (40-1) Finished 2012 strong, we’ll see how offense looks without Chudzinski.

New York Jets (50-1) New coordinators, new GM, same Mark Sanchez, though.

Philadelphia Eagles (50-1) Got their man in Chip Kelly; let’s see if he’s a Harbaugh or Saban.

St. Louis Rams (50-1) Plenty of positives from 2012 season; crucial year coming up for Bradford.

Miami Dolphins (50-1) Plenty of cap room, draft picks for Miami to improve this offseason.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers (50-1) Solid young nucleus, but pressure is squarely on Josh Freeman.

Cleveland Browns (50-1) Turner and Horton give Chudzinski quite the pair of coordinators.

Kansas City Chiefs (50-1) How much time will Andy Reid need to turn the Chiefs around?

Tennessee Titans (100-1) Clearly not a lot of confidence in a Jake Locker-led Titans team.

Buffalo Bills (100-1) Brand new staff hopes to get the most out of a big-name defensive line.

Arizona Cardinals (100-1) Bruce Arians inherits a solid defense, but a host of questions on offense.

Oakland Raiders (150-1) Cap issues remain, but at least Oakland gets a first-round pick this year.

Jacksonville Jaguars (150-1) Gus Bradley’s first question for 2013 — who will start at quarterback?
