New England Clear Favourites For More Super Bowl Glory

Few will be surprised to see the New England Patriots at the head of the betting for more Super Bowl glory after they produced a comeback for the ages to beat the Falcons last season, and claim another ring in the process.

The Pats were all but down and out against Atlanta but led by the ageless Tom Brady, they stormed back to claim the world championship, and they are without doubt the best team in football.

Wide receiver Julian Edelman will miss the season after picking up a knee injury which is a blow, but with Rob Gronkowski back to fitness at tight end, and Brandin Cooks arrived from New Orleans, Tom Brady is blessed with an array of options in offence. Brady maybe 40 but he has shown no signs of deterioration in recent years and a 6th ring for the greatest of all time is clearly driving him.

The only negative against New England is that no team has won back-to-back Super Bowls since they did it back in 2004 and 2005, but even taking that into account, they are the worthy outright favourites at 4/1 with Paddy Power.

Seahawks Could Be Set For A Stellar Season

Few teams can match the popularity of the Seattle Seahawks in the UK, and there is plenty of expectation surrounding them once again in 2017.

Seattle destroyed the Broncos back in Super Bowl 48, before losing to New England in Super Bowl 49, and the majority of that roster remains. Last season saw the Seahawks fall to the Falcons in the Divisional round of the play-offs, but they approach the 2017 campaign in much better shape.

Russell Wilson struggled with an ankle injury for long periods of 2016 but he has returned in 2017 looking stronger, faster and primed for a massive season. He remains one of the best in the business under centre and as he approaches his prime, he will be hoping the famous Seattle defence has one last big effort in them. The famed Legion Of Boom Seattle defence was the basis of their Super Bowl glory and if they can back up a better than ever Wilson, they will go very close indeed in the play-offs.

There is every chance they will be the main threat to the Patriots outright at 11/1 but at this stage, it is safer to back them to win the NFC at 11/2 with Hills. The Falcons will be dangerous in the NFC but can only regress having lost Offensive Coordinator Kyle Shanahan, whilst the same goes for the Cowboys who have had a troubled off-season.

Eagles To Soar In The NFC East

One last bet for our ante-post coupon is in the NFC East one which is of the most open divisions in the NFL. The Cowboys dominated last term but as we have already mentioned, they have struggled with injuries and suspensions through the off-season, and they are due for a slight regression as a result.

The Giants have one of the best defences in the sport but have an ailing man under centre in the form of Eli Manning, whilst the Redskins have plenty of talent but they remain worryingly weak in defence and in Kirk Cousins, they have a QB who is yet to commit his future to Washington.

That leaves the Eagles as the team to follow in the NFC East at 15/4 with bet365. Philly went 7-9 last season with a rookie QB in Carson Wentz and we can expect him to improve again during his sophomore campaign. Alshon Jeffery has arrived from Chicago to add a touch of class and experience to the wide receiver corps, and that coupled with depth in the running game, ensures they are the pick in this division.
