Here is another good article on the 10 favorites to win the SB. Denver is at #1.

1. Denver Broncos (7/1)
The rich got richer this offseason, as Peyton Manning’s crew added Wes Welker to a group of receivers that was already as scary as they come. Welker should step into the slot role vacated by Brandon Stokley, and should be able to pick up right where he left off with Tom Brady and the Pats from a production standpoint.
They lost sack machine Elvis Dumervil to the Ravens in free agency (thanks to a snafu involving a fax machine), but were able to add veterans like Shaun Phillips Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and Quentin Jammer to their defense. Jammer, a longtime corner in San Diego, will come in and play safety for Denver.
They fell in heart-breaking fashion to the Ravens in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, but may have been one Rahim Moore boneheaded play from making a deep run.
Manning should come into this year stronger and healthier than he did at the beginning of 2012, when he was still working his way back from several neck surgeries. If he can develop a quick rapport with Welker, and if the Broncos can get consistent production from their group of running backs, they’ll be the odds-on favorites to win the Super Bowl in 2014.
