The Patriots and Packers were the favorites to win the Super Bowl last year at 7/1 odds, with the Seahawks (8/1) falling right behind them. The same three teams start the season occupying the top three spots with New England standing alone at 7/2 odds and the Packers and Seahawks tied for second with 10/1 odds to win it all. Seattle and Green Bay also share 5/1 odds to win the NFC. These two teams start the season facing off in Lambeau Field, with the Packers enjoying a 3 point edge.
Last year, readers predicated a 13-3 finish for the Seahawks, with losses at Arizona, Green Bay, and New England. Will your combined wisdom be more accurate this time around?
