Odds to win the Super Bowl from BetOnline.com

With 17 weeks of regular season play behind us, 12 teams enter the NFL postseason with a chance to claim the Vince Lombardi Trophy on February 5 in Indianapolis.

Granted, the chances of winning this year’s Super Bowl vary from team to team, but the bottom line is that once an organization has qualified for the postseason, anything can happen.

Just take a look at the 2010 Packers and 2005 Steelers, who both won the Super Bowl despite starting the postseason as the No. 6 seed in their respective conferences. The 2007 Giants shocked the world with their 17-14 upset win over the previously unbeaten New England Patriots, having earned the right to play in the title game after entering the playoffs as the NFC’s No. 5 seed.

This season’s No. 6 seeds have a daunting task in front of them. The Detroit Lions (35-1) have to open the postseason with a road date at New Orleans against a Saints team that is 8-0 straight up and against the spread at home this season. In the AFC, the Cincinnati Bengals (45-1) look to make some noise with a rookie quarterback leading the way.

Here’s the rundown for the rest of the playoff field, courtesy of Dave Mason and our friends at BetOnline.com:
