Packers open as favorites to win 2013 Super Bowl

Jan 17, 2012 |
The Green Bay Packers looked bad in their upset loss to the New York Giants on Sunday. But in the eyes of oddsmakers at the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino SuperBook, the Packers are still the favorites to win next year’s Super Bowl.

The SuperBook released odds to win the 2013 Super Bowl on Monday afternoon, opening the Packers at +500 (5/1) favorites.

"Despite the poor performance in the divisional playoffs, the Packers are still considered the top ranked team going into next year," SuperBook executive director Jay Kornegay told Covers.com. "They have youth and plenty of depth to make a serious run at the title…again."

The New Orleans Saints are next at +600, followed by the current favorite to win this year’s Super Bowl, the New England Patriots at +800.

According to SuperBook manager Jeff Sherman, the first bets taken were on the San Francisco 49ers (+2000), Carolina Panthers (+4000), Kansas City Chiefs (+5000), Seattle Seahawks (+5000), Oakland Raiders (+5000) and Washington Redskins (+10000).

Sherman characterized most of those bets as "small," but the SuperBook is expecting a rush of action on the Super Bowl futures in three weeks when this year's Super Bowl draws bettors to sportsbooks.

"As usual, we expect plenty of action on the early future board," added Kornegay. "Most of the early action will come in during Super Bowl weekend. Overall, Americans have plenty of opinions on who’s going to win the Super Bowl no matter what time of year."
