The Las Vegas Hotel sports book has the Seattle Seahawks as the favorites to win the Super Bowl, according to the Denver Post. LVH says Seattle has 3-to-2 odds to win Super Bowl XLVIII.

This marks the first time since midsummer that a team other than the Broncos have been on top. For the past two weeks the Seahawks and the Broncos had the same odds.

The sports director for LVH told the Denver Post three factors contributed to the change for the Broncos: “One, the offense didn’t play that well against San Diego. Two, the defense is concerning. And three, Seattle has consistently played well.”

Denver's odds of winning are 5-to-2. San Francisco is third with 8-to-1 odds. Four teams have 12-to-1 odds: New England, New Orleans, Cincinnati and Carolina.
