Seahawks remain odds-on favorite to win Super Bowl

It wasn’t too long ago that the Seattle Seahawks, mired in a funk, were considered underdogs to qualify for the postseason.

How things change. They’re now the odds-on choice to repeat as Super Bowl champs.

Per ProFootballTalk.com, linemaker William Hill U.S. on Sunday night released the newest Super Bowl 49 odds, listing Seattle as 9-5 favorites.

Here’s what the entire playoff field looks like:

Seahawks: +180 (9-5)

Patriots: +225 (9-4)

Packers: 11-2

Broncos: 6-1

Cowboys: 9-1

Ravens: 22-1

Colts: 22-1

Panthers: 28-1

If you’ve felt like you heard this before … well, you have. Last February, Vegas tabbed the Seahawks as 9-2 favorites to again take home the Lombardi Trophy.

In related news, there’s a more-than-good chance the Seahawks will win the NFC for the second straight year, according to Hill, who has them at -150 (2-3) favorites.

The Seahawks will host the Panthers in next Saturday’s Divisional Round contest.
