While we eagerly anticipate National Football League Wild Card playoff action, we take one final look at the odds to claim Super Bowl XLIX currently posted at the Sportsinteraction sportsbook. With 12 teams still in the NFL title chase, the lines are at their peak picking price as the numbers will drop once the first round playoff games begin.

New England: top chalk in the AFC playoff hierarchy
Knocking Denver off the perch, that they owned in the playoffs the last two seasons, New England is posted as the team to beat in the AFC Championship. Slightly concerned that the Patriots played just five games against playoff bound teams, there’s solace in knowing that the Brady Bunch went 4-1 in those contests and they enter the postseason with a solid squad on both sides of the ball. Bill Belichick & Crew beat Denver, Detroit, Cincinnati and Indianapolis by a 162-67 margin while the lone loss was 26-21 against the Packers in Green Bay. The Broncos, who get a first round bye along with the Pats are the second favorites while Pittsburgh is a distant third. The Colts, Bengals and Ravens are all huge pups just to win the AFC title.
Seattle Seahawks: The Champs still rule the top NFC and NFL perches
As they were back in July 2014, the defending Champion Seahawks are top chalk as we get set for Wild Card Weekend action. Seattle, is enjoying a first round bye and the road to Arizona will pass through CenturyLink Field beginning with the Divisional playoff round next week. Seattle broke out of an early slump and rolled to a 9-1 record, including seven straight wins, to close out their season. Green Bay, who are the second overall favorite in the NFC is also home and resting as the Packers prepare to host a home game at Lambeau Field next weekend. NFC numbers from second to third are closer as the Cowboys round out the top three. NFL 2015 Futures Predictions: It’s difficult finding a team that can deny Seattle of their second straight Super Bowl. If there’s a team that can do it, New England is the top contender. As such, we will lay 250 units on the Seahawks to win the NFC and the Patriots to claim the AFC. We are also betting 500 units on Seattle to capture Super Bowl XLIX with the money lines prices posted at SportsInteraction.
