NFL playoff odds 2015: Seahawks, Patriots favored to meet in Super Bowl
The Seahawks and Patriots are familiar faces in the playoffs and enter the postseason as the favorites to meet in Super Bowl XLIX.
The 12-team playoff field is set and it’s the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots favored to clear through conference competition and meet in Super Bowl XLIX, according to OddsShark. The Packers and Broncos are close behind in the eyes of the odds makers.
For the Patriots, a trip to the Super Bowl would be the sixth since 2002 and second appearance in the past four seasons, while the Seahawks will look to become the first back-to-back NFL champions since the Patriots earned victories in Super Bowls XXXVIII and XXXIX in 2004-05.
Although the Patriots and Seahawks are the favorites, it’s by no means a landslide. The Green Bay Packers and Denver Broncos have strong odds as well, with the Dallas Cowboys also drawing good odds at the team’s first Super Bowl victory since 1996.
Unsurprisingly, the NFC South champions are the longshot to win the Super Bowl after the Carolina Panthers finished with a losing record in the regular season. The full odds via OddsShark are as follows:
