New England Patriots on Paper: Pats at 8/1 to win Super Bowl

If the oddsmakers are correct, football’s final four will include the New England Patriots.

Las Vegas oddsmakers have instilled the San Francisco 49ers, 6-1, as the odd-on favorites to win the title, followed in order by Denver (15-2), New England (8-1) and Seattle (9-1).  If these odds hold true, we would be seeing a Denver / New England Matchup in the AFC Championship game…

…we’re not so sure about the NFC title tilt.  The Niners and Seahawks are playing in the same division as the vastly improved Rams and a Cardinals squad that looks better as well, while in the AFC, New England and Denver are pretty much locks in their own divisions, though Miami and Buffalo have made strides to be competitive in the AFC East while Kansas City could prove to be pesky for the Broncos in the West.

And of course it’s far too early to be thinking about such things – that being said, here are the odds to win the Super Bowl as listed by Sportsbook Bovada.lv , with AFC East participants in bold:
