Green Bay Packers:
It is safe to say that Green Bay is the top favorite to take the Super Bowl home this year. Standing at + 625 to win it all, they made sure they improved the two things that troubled them last season. This year they made sure that their issues with handling pressure and with defense were taken care of.
Since their defense downside couldn’t really get any worse than last season, it is for sure that it will get better. During the offseason they have worked on improving that weakness also by getting Aaron Rogers to climb aboard for better defense tactics.

New Orleans Saints:
As the Super Bowl will take place in New Orleans fans on the Saints can only dream and pressure their team for a potential championship game at home. They are currently at +825 to win the Super Bowl. Although they have an amazing offense, teams have already figured out a lot of their game so it does not look they will be of great threat. For the last two seasons Drew Brees has been seen at his best but pundits say that won’t be the case this time around.
Defense for the Saints will come as a problem. This is a fact triggered by the departure of Gregg Williams who did an outstanding job on defense last season. His replacement, Steve Spagnuolo, will not be able to measure up to Williams’ standards so they will definitely suffer there.
New England Patriots:
They had a pretty frustrating upset in the previous Super Bowl, nevertheless they are still coming up as the runner up to win this year’s championship. With odds of +725 to win the Super Bowl they are also being considered to win the AFC.
They hope to work out the issues that they have on offense now that they have a new offensive coordinator who will strengthen their running game and depth at receiver. In regards to their defense it seems that they are also working out some changes.
