Talking Points is on record betting the Pittsburgh Steelers at 10-to-1 to win the Super Bowl next February at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

That doesn’t mean there aren’t other intriguing options in the futures market around town. There are several cases to be made from teams at the top of the betting boards alone.

New England is the biggest preseason favorite in a decade at as low as 2-to-1 around town, but the defending champions might be worth every penny after the way they trounced the league last year. The Patriots lost only one game in 2016 with quarterback Tom Brady behind center.

The soon-to-be Las Vegas Raiders are the most popular bet on the board, with prices cut from 20-to-1 to as low as 6-to-1. Oakland made the playoffs for the first time in 14 years last season, and figures to be improved with its young core this year.

And that’s before even getting to perennial NFC favorites Green Bay and Seattle, not to mention Dallas, which had the conference’s best regular-season record last year.

So we’ll turn the question to you.

Which of the six favorites at the Westgate Las Vegas Superbook is the best bet to win Super Bowl 52?
