— -- Three teams that watched Super Bowl 50 from home -- the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Pittsburgh Steelers -- head into the offseason as the favorites to win next year's Super Bowl.

At the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas, the Patriots, Seahawks and Steelers are 8-1 co-favorites to win Super Bowl LI on Feb. 5, 2017, at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

The Green Bay Packers, Arizona Cardinals and Carolina Panthers are next at 10-1, followed by the Cincinnati Bengals and 2016 Super Bowl champion  Denver Broncos at 14-1.

The Cleveland Browns, at 200-1, are the biggest long shots on the board. No other team has odds in the triple-digits.

The San Francisco 49ers, with new coach Chip Kelly, are the second longest at 60-1. The 49ers' odds did not change when Kelly was hired in mid-January.

There will be plenty of adjustments, though, in an offseason filled with stories, beginning with Peyton Manning. The veteran quarterback did not announce his retirement before Sunday's Super Bowl, but there has been plenty of speculation that it was his last game. Las Vegas sportsbook operator CG Technology set odds on the number of passing attempts Manning will throw during the 2016 regular season at ½. The under was a -600 favorite.

Seattle running back Marshawn Lynch is also  reportedly considering retirement, a move that could impact the Seahawks' status as co-favorites.

The Dallas Cowboys are 16-1, followed by the Minnesota Vikings, Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs at 20-1.
