Super Bowl Odds - 2009 Top AFC Contenders

Super Bowl odds have a solid list of top Super Bowl betting contenders from the American Football Conference led by the defending world champion Pittsburgh Steelers.

Super Bowl odds may also include the Indianapolis Colts, Cincinnati Bengals, or New England Patriots as the AFC has plenty of Super Bowl betting talent. The Pittsburgh Steelers entered this year as the favorite to again be the AFC representative with the Super Bowl odds.

The Steelers have one of the top defenses in the league and that is what got them into last year’s Super Bowl betting matchup against Arizona.  The Steelers also have a formidable quarterback in Ben Roethlisberger who rallied Pittsburgh with a clutch drive in the waning moments of last year’s Super Bowl gambling showdown.

The Indianapolis Colts are a perennial contender to make the Super Bowl odds and won the world title in the 2006 season.  Indianapolis won their first 9 games straight up this season and continued to improve on the futures Super Bowl odds to make the big game next February.

Peyton Manning ranked in the top three for quarterback rating while the defense was at the top for points allowed.  The Colts would be a veteran and seasoned team with the Super Bowl odds.  The New England Patriots are always a contender to make the Super Bowl odds.

The Patriots have been on the Super Bowl betting board four times this decade with 3 Super Bowl gambling wins.  New England was well out in front in the AFC East Division and quarterback Tom Brady ranked in the 5 for QB ratings.

New England was near the top for scoring defense and would be another seasoned and veteran team to bet the Super Bowl odds with in February.  The upstart Cincinnati Bengals have become something of a “joker” card for the Super Bowl odds.

It would not be wise to discount the Bengals with the Super Bowl odds as they led the AFC North and defeated the defending Super Bowl champion Steelers at Pittsburgh 18-12 on November 15.  The Bengals defense ranked 2nd for points allowed.

An AFC sleeper with the Super Bowl odds could be the San Diego Chargers who were 6-3 straight up and with one of the league’s best quarterbacks in Philip Rivers.
