Las Vegas sports books favor the New York Giants over the 11 other teams in the NFL playoffs to win the Super Bowl, giving 2-to-1 odds on the NFC’s No. 1 seed to repeat as champions.

The Tennessee Titans are the favorite among AFC teams to win a title at 4-1.

Oddsmaker Mike Seba of Las Vegas Sports Consultants says the Giants have the easiest road to get to the Super Bowl on Feb. 1, while the AFC teams are more evenly matched.

The Giants would have to beat either the Arizona Cardinals or the Atlanta Falcons to reach the NFC championship game. Sports books have set 40-1 odds on the Cardinals winning the Super Bowl, and 15-1 odds on the Falcons.

The No. 3 Miami Dolphins are the AFC longshots for the title at 30-1.
