Super Bowl XLVIII Odds: Steelers open at 18-to-1

Now that Joe Flacco and the Baltimore Ravens have brought the NFL football season to a close, it is officially time to start looking forward to next season.

With that in mind, the odds are out for next season’s Super Bowl winner and the Pittsburgh Steelers come in at 18-to-1, which in actuality is not a bad opening number for a team that went 8-8, has a ton of free agents and a ton of holes to fill on both sides of the ball.

The New England Patriots open up as the overall favorite at 7-to-1, followed by the San Francisco 49ers and Denver Broncos who both opened at 8-to-1.

The defending champs didn’t get a lot of respect as the Ravens opened up at 14-to-1, with five other teams ahead of them.
