NFL Playoff Odds: Patriots Favorite To Win Super Bowl, Seahawks Huge Long-Shots

The Super Bowl odds are out and the New England Patriots are the favorites to win.

If the NFL Playoffs were a horse race, the Seattle Seahawks would be the longest of long-shots. The odds-makers have released their NFL Playoff Odds, and to no one's surprise the New England Patriots are the favorites to bring home their 4th Super Bowl trophy. They sit at 2/1, far and away the favorite. That doesn't mean much, however, since the Pats were the favorites in 2007 as well when they went 16-0 during the regular season.

On the other end are the Seattle Seahawks, who, at 7-9, are the first team with a losing record to participate in the tournament. At 100/1, the oddsmakers don't feel very confident that they'll be able to make a run, despite beating the St. Louis Rams last night to win the West. They face the New Orleans Saints on Saturday.
