Panthers make biggest leap in latest Super Bowl odds
There were some noticeable risers-and-fallers to the Super Bowl odds after Sunday's NFL action.
The biggest move this week was made by the surging Carolina Panthers.
Heading into last week, the Panthers' odds to win the Super Bowl were 35/1, but marching into Candlestick Park and upsetting the San Francisco 49ers 10-9 is no joke. The Panthers are now on a five-game winning streak and the odds have reflected that, putting them at 18/1. Four weeks ago the Panthers were listed at 125/1.
Thanks to Aaron Rodgers' broken collarbone, the biggest faller of the week was the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have gone from 12/1 to 25/1, to 50/1 since Rodgers' injury. To add insult to injury, Packers backup QB Seneca Wallace injured his groin during this week's loss to the Eagles. Now the Packers starting job falls to undrafted rookie free agent Scott Tolzien, who could make his first career start this week against the Giants in New York.
The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks are still the faves to represent the AFC and NFC respectively. The Broncos are coming in at 16/5, and the Seahawks are listed at 7/2.
