Just as one season ends, the odds for who will win next year's Super Bowl are unveiled. Who are the early favorites? That would be the Green Bay Packers (6/1) and the New England Patriots (7/1), the same two teams who were the favorites heading into the 2011-2012 season. The Giants, meanwhile, are eighth on the list with 15/1 odds. Talk about not getting any respect after winning it twice in four years!
Last year, the Cleveland Browns were 60/1 odds for the Super Bowl. Did they place any better with this year's odds? The odds for the AFC North are listed after the jump.
Pittsburgh Steelers (12/1) - worse than last year
Baltimore Ravens (14/1) - same as last year
Cincinnati Bengals (40/1) - better than last year
- Cleveland Browns (100/1) - worse than last year
Well, at least you're going to get rich if you bet on the Browns!
