2012 NFL Playoffs: Steelers Predictably Have Better Odds To Win AFC, Super Bowl

Finishing with an 8-8 record, the Denver Broncos are one of the bigger underdogs in the 2012 NFL playoffs. However, they aren't the team with the worst odds to win the AFC or the Super Bowl, according to Bovada. While the Broncos have 50/1 odds to win the Super Bowl and 25/1 odds to take the AFC, the Cincinnati Bengals only match the Broncos in the latter. The Bengals are 65/1 favorites to hoist the Lombardi trophy in February, last among all playoff teams. The Pittsburgh Steelers, meanwhile, are 11/1 favorites for the Super Bowl and 7/2 for the AFC.

If the Broncos were able to get to the Super Bowl here are the odds for each matchup against the NFC:

Green Bay Packers vs. Denver Broncos 40/1

San Francisco 49ers vs. Denver Broncos 150/1

New Orleans Saints vs. Denver Broncos 80/1

New York Giants vs. Denver Broncos 200/1

Atlanta Falcons vs. Denver Broncos 300/1

Detroit Lions vs. Denver Broncos 350/1
