According to, the Dallas Cowboys and Oakland Raiders are the current favorites to reach the Super Bowl. As of right now, the Cowboys would be a four point favorite over the Raiders in the Super Bowl.

Oakland hasn't reached the Super Bowl since 2002 when they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 48-21, and they haven't won a Super Bowl since 1983.

Dallas hasn't reached the Super Bowl since 1995 when they defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers 27-17 in Super Bowl XXX.

"What a dream matchup this would be for the NFL," BookMaker's Scott Cooley said. "And of course you'd have all the Raiders-to-Vegas storylines, which would only fuel the wagering side of the Super Bowl. The Raiders are one team that can rival the Cowboys in terms of action, but I expect we'd still be somewhat one-sided with the favorite."

The Cowboys are the clear-cut favorite in the NFC, but the AFC picture is a bit more muddled. The Raiders haven't even locked up their division yet, as they trail the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West. Other contenders, such as the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers, also present a challenge for the Raiders.
