The 2011 Super Bowl is less than 12 hours into the record books, as of this writing. Who knows, there may still be people stuck trying to get out of the parking lot, and some people who paid for tickets didn't get seats.â†µâ†µ
But if you're already thinking about next year's Super Bowl, oddsmakers already have the Packers as favorites to repeat, at 8/1 odds.â†µâ†µ
Other teams just behind the Packers in the oddsmakers' eyes are the New England Patriots, also at 8/1; the Steelers are at 10/1, the Chargers at 12/1, and the Ravens, Colts and Saints at 14/1. A surprise find: the Cowboys at 16/1 after their weirdly split 2010 season.â†µâ†µ
The Bears get little respect from the oddsmakers: 22/1 odds, despite coming within a touchdown of making this year's Super Bowl.â†µâ†µ
The teams at the bottom of the list of Super Bowl XLVI contenders, according to bodog.com, are the Bills and Panthers, both at 100/1.
