The Denver Broncos are installed as early favourites to win the Super Bowl against the Seattle Seahawks in New York on February 2.

The Denver Broncos have been installed as early favourites to win this year's Super Bowl.

The Broncos reached the showpiece event courtesy of a 26-16 victory over the New England Patriots in last night's AFC championship game.

They were joined by the Seattle Seahawks later in the evening as they overcame the San Francisco 49ers 23-17 in the NFC title match.

The game will pit Seattle's league-leading defense against the record-breaking offense of the Broncos, and many bookmakers initially sided with a narrow victory for Seattle.

However, a flurry of betting on the Broncos swayed the odds, making Denver slight favourites to win their first Super Bowl crown since 1998.

"We're just trying to figure out what the market will be and get a feel of where money will go. At this point it doesn't take a lot to move the line," Jay Kornegay, who runs the LVH sports book, told the Associated Press.

The match will be played at the MetLife Stadium in New York and is being forecast as the coldest Super Bowl in history.
