The NFL season officially ended Sunday, as the New York Giants defeated the New England Patriots, 21-17, in the 2012 Super Bowl, and that means one thing come Monday. The '12-13 season starts! And according to Las Vegas oddmakers at the MGM Grand, the Pittsburgh Steelers will enter the season with pretty good odds (6-1) to win the 2013 Super Bowl.
The Steelers, who finished the regular season 12-4 but lost to the Denver Broncos in the AFC Wild-Card Round of the playoffs, have the same odds as the Philadelphia Eagles, who trail just the Patriots (5-1) and Green Bay Packers (11-2), respectively.
The current defending champions, the Giants, are getting no love from Vegas who gave them 8-1 odds.
Meanwhile, the Steelers AFC North rivals, the Baltimore Ravens (20-1), Cincinnati Bengals (30-1) and Cleveland Browns (75-1), have worse odds.
