Halfway through the 2014 National Football League offseason, things are already starting to heat up on the NFL betting board at the William Hill online sportsbook. Not only have they posted odds to win Super Bowl XLIX and the individual Conference Championships, but Week One lines are also up as the NFL regular season kicks off on September 4, 2014.
Seattle Seahawks: Defending Champs open as top NFC chalk
Attempting to become the first team to capture back-to-back Super Bowl titles since New England in 2004-05, Seattle has opened as top chalk to win the National Football Conference Championship.

That said, QB Peyton Manning and his multi-headed arsenal should be enough to win a second straight AFC Championship as Tom Brady and the Patriots appear to be their lone stumbling block.
