Patriots favourites for gridiron glory

New England goes into the new NFL season as the bookmakers’ pick to win February’s Super Bowl XLVI ahead of the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles.

Tuesday 30th August 2011



With the 92nd season of the National Football League (NFL) due to start in just over a week’s time, the New England Patriots have been installed as the early favourites to win Super Bowl XLVI in February. The Patriots surprisingly lost to the New York Jets in last season’s Divisional Playoffs but are now being offered at odds of 5/1 by WBX.com, Betfred.com, ToteSport.com and WilliamHill.com to win their fourth Super Bowl title this season. Under head coach Bill Belichick, the Foxborough-based franchise won the Super Bowl in 2001, 2003 and 2004 with 32RedBet.com and BetDaq.com currently showing odds of 26/5 on the twelve-year boss doing it again in this season. Slightly longer, bet365.com, StanJames.com, VictorChandler.com, Bwin.com and PaddyPower.com list the ‘Pats’ at odds of 11/2 to triumph in Super Bowl XLIV, which is scheduled to be held on February 5 from Indianapolis’ Lucas Oil Stadium, while Betfair.com is going with 59/10. New England kicks off its 42nd NFL season on September 12 in Florida against the Miami Dolphins and punters can get odds of 6/1 from Coral.co.uk, BoyleSports.com, BlueSq.com, Intertops.eu, 888Sport.com, SkyBet.com, Unibet.com and Bodog.com on the American Football Conference (AFC) East side winning Super Bowl XLVI while SportingBet.com is showing 13/2. The Green Bay Packers defeated the highly fancied Pittsburgh Steelers to claim last season’s Super Bowl XLV and are now at odds of 6/1 with PaddyPower.com, Unibet.com, StanJames.com, Sportingbet.com and Bodog.com to do it again this season. With 13 titles stretching way back to 1929, the ‘Pack’ are one of the NFL’s most successful franchises and Bwin.com is currently listing the Wisconsin side at odds of 25/4 to win Super Bowl XLVI. Similarly, BlueSq.com, 32RedBet.com, bet365.com, BetDaq.com, Coral.co.uk, Intertops.eu and 888Sport.com have the side coached by Mike McCarthy at odds of 13/2 to finish top of the NFL pile in its 91st season before WilliamHill.com, VictorChandler.com, ToteSport.com, Betfred.com, SkyBet.com and BoyleSports.com with 7/1. The Packers are in the North division of the National Football Conference (NFC) and start their campaign next Thursday against the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field with WBX.com showing the team at odds of 36/5 to take home Super Bowl XLVI in advance of Betfair.com listing 37/5. Last season saw the Packers defeat the Philadelphia Eagles in the Wild Card round of the playoffs but the side from the East division of the NFC has since strengthened and go into their 79th season at odds of 7/1 with ToteSport.com to win Super Bowl XLVI. The Eagles begin their season away to the St Louis Rams on September 11 and 32RedBet.com, BetDaq.com and PaddyPower.com currently show Andy Reid’s men at odds of 15/2 to win it all. Philadelphia has won three championships in its history but the last of these came back in 1960 despite the side making it into the playoffs in nine of the previous eleven seasons. Intertops.eu, BoyleSports.com, bet365.com, WBX.com, VictorChandler.com, Betfred.com, StanJames.com, Sportingbet.com, Unibet.com, BlueSq.com, 888Sport.com, WilliamHill.com, Coral.co.uk, Bodog.com and Bwin.com are offering odds of 8/1 that 2011 will finally be the Pennsylvania team’s year before Betfair.com with 41/5. Other teams seen as being in with a chance of winning Super Bowl XLVI include San Diego Chargers, who are at odds of 10/1 with Betfred.com, StanJames.com, VictorChandler.com, Intertops.eu, 32RedBet.com, WilliamHill.com, ToteSport.com, Coral.co.uk, SkyBet.com and Bet365.com, while 2009 champion New Orleans are being offered at 16/1 by Bodog.com, WilliamHill.com, Intertops.eu, 888Sport.com, Bwin.com, BlueSq.com, BoyleSports.com, Sportingbet.com and bet365.com.
