2011 Super Bowl Lines

2011 Super Bowl Lines: The dust has barely settled on the 2009 NFL season, but the combine, April draft, and upcoming free agency period continue to keep the league a topic of conversation. Also keeping the interest up is the early 2011 Super Bowl Lines at online bookmaker SPORTSBETTING.com. The pre-draft, pre-free agency period favorite to win the Lombardi is last year's AFC representative, Indianapolis, at +600 moneyline odds. The San Diego Chargers, New Orleans Saints, and New England Patriots all come in behind the Colts at +800 odds while the Steelers and Vikings round out the top six at +1000 odds.

The Colts, which have been to eight straight playoffs, figure to be an elite team again next season with Peyton Manning 2011 Super Bowl Linesunder center. The core group of players, with the exception of possibly linebacker Gary Brackett, all return from last year's 14-2, AFC Championship squad. Indy was a five point favorite to win Super Bowl XLIV, given that, there is no reason to believe the Colts will not be a major player in next year's playoffs.

The Saints, like the Colts, will also return most of their key players as well. Safety Darren Sharper and running backs Reggie Bush and Pierre Thomas are all restricted free agents, but New Orleans will probably do what it can to keep at least two of the three on the roster. Drew Brees holds the keys to the league's top offensive machine and he figures to be the same elite passer that he has been for the past several seasons. With the Purdue grad tossing the pigskin, it is difficult to envision the offensive production taking much of a step back. 

In the AFC, the Colts strongest competition figures to come from the Chargers (especially if they can hold onto players like Vincent Jackson, Shawne Merriman, and Darren Sproules), Patriots, and Steelers. New England will most certainly look different in 2010; however, Bill Belichick will still be patrolling the sidelines and Tom Brady will still man the quarterback position. Those two factors alone make them a threat to win it all. Pittsburgh failed to live up to expectations in 2009, but a rebound should be in order for one of the league's most talented squads.

New Orleans' will most likely be challenged by the same group of teams that threatened them in 2009, which includes (primarily) the Vikings, Cowboys, and Packers. If Brett Favre returns, Minnesota could be considered the biggest hazard to the Saints crown. Dallas has some issues to work out, especially along the offensive line, but Jerry Jones will work and spend as much as needed to keep his team relevant. The Packers defense took a huge step forward under coordinator Dom Capers, it should only get better in 2010. Aaron Rodgers has proven to be one of the league's best quarterbacks, making the Pack's offense just as potent as its defense.
