Super Bowl XLVII odds: 49ers among the favorites

We break down the variety of Super Bowl odds for the 49ers heading into the 2013 NFL playoffs.

Michael Heiman

The NFL playoffs kick off this coming Saturday, which means we have a variety of gambling information for your perusal. The odds below include odds to win the Super Bowl, win the conference, and odds for the various potential Super Bowl matchups.

The Denver Broncos are 3 to 1 Super Bowl favorites, with the 49ers third at 6 to 1 behind the New England Patriots. The Falcons are just behind the 49ers at 7 to 1. This goes to show just how important that second round home matchup really is. It also says a lot about the view of the Falcons. This strikes me as thinking the Falcons will drop their divisional matchup, and the 49ers will win their divisional matchup, thus setting up another NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park. I certainly would like to see that, but we'll just have to wait and see.

My favorite part is the odds for various potential Super Bowl matchups. 49ers vs. Broncos is the favorite, which is not surprising given the various odds. That is set at 13 to 2. Here are the odds for various potential 49ers Super Bowl matchups:

Baltimore Ravens vs. San Francisco 49ers - 35 to 1
Cincinnati Bengals vs. San Francisco 49ers - 70 to 1
Denver Broncos vs. San Francisco 49ers - 13 to 2
Houston Texans vs. San Francisco 49ers - 25 to 1
Indianapolis Colts vs. San Francisco 49ers - 80 to 1

Although 49ers-Texans could be a fun matchup, that is the only one that lacks particularly significant storylines. 49ers-Ravens would provide us with Harbowl 2, and the media would go a little crazy on that one. 49ers-Bengals would be the THIRD Super Bowl matchup between these two teams. 49ers-Broncos is a rematch of Super Bowl XXIV, and of course, the Manning vs. Harbaugh/Kaepernick media kerfuffle would be absurd. 49ers-Patriots is a sizable rematch of the earlier matchup, and Harbaugh vs. Belichick will interest people. As for 49ers-Colts? Well, all I have to say is Harbaugh vs. Luck.
