The NFL is almost set for kickoff and teams are preparing for a run at the coveted Lombardi Trophy. Last year the New Orleans Saints surprised the football world by winning the Superbowl, and again this year the championship is up for grabs and any team can win it all.

BETUS has released the odds on every team to win Superbowl XLV in 2011. Although there are odds listed for every team there are certain teams that are more likely to win than others. Bet on Football now and get a $250 early bird bonus .

Here is a look at the odds for the front-runners to win Superbowl XLV, and the reasons why they could win it all.

Indianapolis Colts
Odds to win Superbowl XLV: 8 to 1

Peyton Manning is the league’s four-time MVP and when he is on your team, there is always a chance of winning a Super Bowl ring. He is arguably one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the NFL and last year he was one interception away from winning his second Super Bowl. This year he is back with a very talented team that is determined to return to the championship game.

Mark my words: The Colts will be in the mix for another ring this season.

Odds to win Superbowl XLV: 8 to 1

The Chargers won the AFC West and made the playoffs, but were upset by the New York Jets in the divisional round.  It is amazing to note that the Chargers are a mainstay in the NFL playoffs all the while carrying the stigma that they cannot win the Super Bowl. Norv Turner and Phillip Rivers will have to get at least one ring if they hope to shake that reputation. In the offseason they released LaDainian Tomlinson, but San Diego should still have one of the better offenses in the league.

The window to win a championship on this Charger team is closing quickly and if they don’t win a Superbowl soon it could be shut for a very long time.

New Orleans Saints
Odds to win Superbowl XLV: 9 to 1

The Saints shocked the football world last year by bringing a championship to New Orleans. Drew Brees led one of the most explosive offenses in football and he is back to try it again. With the exception of linebacker Scott Fujita, the Saints return all the major players from the championship team.

This Saints will be hard to beat, but this year everyone will be gunning to knock off the defending Super Bowl champions. In this day and age it is just too hard to repeat.

Cowboys to win the Superbowl">Dallas Cowboys
Odds to win Superbowl XLV: 10 to 1

This year the city of Dallas will host Superbowl XLV and nothing would make them happier than if the Cowboys were playing in it. Jerry Jones has assembled a team that is very capable of winning the Superbowl. The Cowboys offense improved in the off season when they drafted superstar wideout Dez Bryant out of Oklahoma State.  Along with the combination of Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice in the backfield  the Cowboys possess one of the best offensive teams in the entire NFL.

If the defense can shut down some of those powerful NFC offenses, the Cowboys could be playing for a ring in January at home.

New York Jets
Odds to win Superbowl XLV: 12-1

The Jets surprised all of the experts last year, making a late run and vaulting into the playoffs. With a rookie quarterback, strong running game, and tough defense, the Jets came up one victory short of a Superbowl appearance. With several improvements in the off season, the Jets appear poised to make another run at the championship game, although not everyone is buying into the hype. Rex Ryan is a players' coach and will run a tough defense capable of making it back to the big game.

Mark Sanchez is armed with playoff experience and new weapons in LaDainian Tomlinson and Santonio Holmes, and that could make them the team to beat in the NFL.

The NFL is gearing up for another exciting season and it will be interesting to see if a front runner wins it all or another surprise team wins a ring this January.
