The Seattle Seahawks and their fans once again watched from home as Super Bowl XLVI unfolded. When the game wrapped up and the New York Giants emerged victorious, the Seahawks could finally, officially start thinking about their chances for next year's big game. The oddsmakers have been doing their share of thinking as well and have already come up with a cursory list of odds for 2013.
Joe Fortenbaugh of the National Football Post relays the early odds for next year's Super Bowl. The Seahawks are currently looking at 50-1 odds to go all the way in the coming season. Also at 50-1 are the Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders, Arizona Cardinals, Tennessee Titans, Denver Broncos, Buffalo Bills, Minnesota Vikings and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Not the loftiest company, certainly, but 50-1 odds is far from impossible. There is no telling how things will look when the season is upon us.
The early favorites for next year's Super Bowl are the Green Bay Packers at 5-1, the New Orleans Saints at 6-1 and the New England Patriots at 8-1. The New York Giants are currently at 20-1, but expect them to jump in the rankings following their big Super Bowl win.
