The Seattle Seahawks lost two of their last four games a season ago, but they were the NFC’s best team throughout the year and they proved as much when the playoffs got underway. Russell Wilson and company were a bit up and down to start the 2014 season, but they enter the 2015 NFL Playoffs with a full head of steam. The Seahawks locked up the top seed in the NFC with a 12-4 record and they will host a Divisional Round game next weekend looking to preserve a winning streak that reached six games with their season finale destruction of the Rams.

The Green Bay Packers are third on the list at 11 to 2 odds and they are followed closely by the aforementioned Broncos, who are drawing 13 to 2 odds to claim the franchise’s third championship.
