A team given 30-1 odds in the preseason to win the Super Bowl now appears to the bookies as the best candidate to come out on top.

Vegas Insider pegs the Arizona Cardinals as 7-2 favorites to emerge from Santa Clara with the Lombardi Trophy. The oddsmakers see the Green Bay Packers, one of the preseason favorites at 6-1, as the longest shot among the remaining teams to win the Super Bowl.

Arizona Cardinals 7/2
New England Patriots 4/1
Carolina Panthers 5/1
Seattle Seahawks 11/2
Denver Broncos 6/1
Kansas City Chiefs 17/2
Pittsburgh Steelers 12/1
Green Bay Packers 16/1

The Chiefs and Panthers, along with the Cardinals, head into the homestretch as the surprises of the season. Oddsmakers figured Kansas City at 30-1 and Carolina at 60-1 before the first game of 2015.
