The upcoming National Football League (NFL) appears to be gearing up with intensity. Odds on the 2012-13 conference winners, Super Bowl champion and other match-ups are already being offered by several online Sports-books.
Super Bowl 2012-13 Favorites
The Green Bay Packers have been listed as favorites for Super Bowl champions by several sports betting sites including 888Sports, William Hill and bet365 and their odds range from 6/1 to 11/2. Odds of 7/1 are being offered by Hill on the Patriots, 10/1 on the Texans , 14/1 on the Eagles and 49ers. The other betting sites are pretty much in line with these numbers.
888Sports has odds of 18/1 on the 2012-13 winners, the Giants, while Hill and bet365 have odds of 20/1 hinting that the Giants may not repeat their victory. Therefore, this season offers a great chance to bet on an unlikely winner.
Betting on Conference and Other Matches
The three top online sports books show odds in favor of the Packers for the NFC Conference and the Patriots for the AFC Conference. Their Week 1 placements and spreads show some possible big games between the Cowboys and Giants, 49ers and Packers and Steelers and Broncos.
Several player season specials already have odds offered by 888Sports. For Rookie of the Year, they are looking at Andrew Luck at 3/1, both Robert Griffin III and Trent Richardson at 5/1 along with fifteen other top players.

While the NFL teams are still in pre-season preparation, the sports-book operator for the Palms, Cosmopolitan, Hard Rock, Tropicana, M Resort, Palazzo and the Venetian casinos in Las Vegas, Cantor Gaming, has already released spreads on the regular season games up to Week 16.
The online sports betting sites and the Vegas sports-books have already published the Week 1 odds and the bettors are deciding which predictions to go with for the hope of placing big future bets on the various NFL games.
