Vegas odds favor Giants, Titans to make Super Bowl

Associated Press - December 29, 2008 12:33 PM ET

LAS VEGAS (AP) - Las Vegas sports books are favoring the New York Giants over the 11 other teams in the NFL playoffs to win the Super Bowl, giving 2 to 1 odds on the NFC's No. 1 seed to repeat as champions.

The Tennessee Titans are the favorite among AFC teams to win a title at 4-1.

An oddsmaker with Las Vegas Sports Consultants says the Giants have the easiest road to get to the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, while the AFC teams are more evenly matched.

The Giants would have to beat either the Arizona Cardinals or the Atlanta Falcons to reach the NFC championship game. The Cardinals are the biggest longshots for the title at 40-1. In the AFC, the Miami Dolphins have 30-1 odds.

Before the season, the two teams that opened with the longest odds to win the Super Bowl were the Dolphins, at 250-1, and the Falcons at 200-1. Now they're both in the playoffs.

The two preseason favorites - the New England Patriots, at 2-1, and Dallas Cowboys, at 7-1 - failed to reach the postseason.
