As the NFL season begins to edge closer towards the playoffs there are still a whole host of teams with a shot of lifting the Vince Lombardi Trophy come February. As the divisions begin to take shape, Denver Broncos have been installed as the favorites with the bookmakers, as they sit top of the AFC West Conference. Broncos have an impressive 10-2-0 record for the season and are undefeated at home so itís no surprise they have been priced at 11/4. But alongside them on the same odds are Seattle Seahawks, who are flying in the NFC West conference with 11 wins from their 12 outings. These two are the clear favourites with the bookmakers and punters alike, but who else has a chance of claiming victory in Superbowl XLVII?
After a fantastic start to the campaign, Kansas City Chiefs have slipped off the pace behind Denver in the AFC West conference. The Chiefs stood at 9-0 before 3 defeats in their last 3 games, to San Diego and Denver twice, have left them in 2nd place. The fans will be hoping to see Jamaal Charles show similar form to what helped propel Kansas City to the top of the league at the beginning of the season, as the Running Back has managed 9 touchdowns this campaign so far. Head Coach Andy Reid will be looking at Alex Smith to navigate the play from Quarterback and hoping he can improve on his 59.3% pass completion so the Chiefs can take the game to their opposition. One player who could make the difference is Dexter McCluster. Kansas City could go all the way in the playoffs if the Wide Receiver takes a few more changes and add to his tally of TDís. The bookmakers currently have Kansas City priced at 33/1, which may seem long, but at one point Carolina Panthers were placed at 90/1 and a now at 9/1, so anything can happen.
Other teams who have a great shout of winning the Superbowl this year are New England Patriots (13/2), San Francisco 49erís (10/1) and the New Orleans Saints (10/1).
