LAS VEGAS -- Training camps are weeks away, but Las Vegas legal bookmakers are already making bets on what the NFL season will look like. Turns out it could be a lot like the last, with the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos favoured to meet again next February in Arizona. Seattle is a 9-2 favourite at the LVH sports book, while the Broncos are next at 5-1 to win the Super Bowl. Both teams are favoured to win more regular-season games than any other team, with oddsmakers putting the over/under for wins at 11 games. "The Broncos have a real tough schedule so it wont be an easy task," said Jeff Sherman, part of a team that sets the odds at the LVH. "They have some tough early games outside their division, including the Super Bowl rematch with the Seahawks in Week 3." The Seahawks are 3 1/2-point favourites to beat the Broncos at home in that game, a line that figures to draw some early action even before either team puts on the pads this summer. Denver was a 2-point favourite in the Super Bowl, which Seattle won 43-8. Sherman said there is more parity than ever in the NFL, with 19 teams expected to win between seven and nine games and only five expected to win 10 or more. At the bottom of the pack is Jacksonville, with a 4 1/2-win line, and Oakland at five games. Despite the parity, teams in the NFC are favoured more than teams in the AFC. Bettors can wager on which conference wins the Super Bowl, with the NFC a 3 1/2-point favourite. "The one thing that really stood out when we sat down and went through this game by game was how many good teams are in the NFC," Sherman said. NFL games are by far the biggest attraction for sports bettors, who placed a record $119.4 million in legal wagers in Nevada on the last Super Bowl alone. Nevada is the only state where full betting on games is allowed, though bettors in Delaware can wager on parlays of more than one team. Sherman said most of the so-called "wise guys" who can move the lines at sports books wait until the exhibition season to begin making wagers, though some might pounce on the early numbers if they think the oddsmakers have made an error evaluating a team. "Once the preseason games start and you can see what the coaches are thinking it becomes more clear," he said. "But they will move in if they think there is a weakness in a line." The LVH is traditionally one of the first to post over/under win totals for the season, which were put up Sunday afternoon. Sherman said there was a small flurry of wagers made by bettors who thought teams might either be undervalued or too highly regarded by the oddsmakers. This years draft didnt change many opinions on win totals, he said, because rookies rarely have a big impact on seasons. That was particularly true with the Cleveland Browns, who are listed at 6 1/2 wins despite the addition of Johnny Manziel at quarterback. "He doesnt have an effect on what we do," Sherman said. "We like the Browns overall as a team, their defence is good and theyve gotten better even if the results dont show it. But in a tough division we just couldnt go any higher." Reggie Wayne Jersey . Geovany Soto had an RBI for the Cubs. Carlos Silva gave up one run on three hits over six innings to pick up the win. Josh Willingham drove in the lone run for the Nationals, who had just four hits. Quenton Nelson Youth Jersey .

According to the Red Wings Twitter feed, Zetterberg plans to practice with the team on Thursday and is aiming for a second round comeback. Rock Ya-Sin Womens Jersey . -- Stacy Lewis shot 7-under 65 to lead the LPGA Tour team to the championship of the 3Tour Challenge on Tuesday. Kenny Moore Youth Jersey . -- Brad Gushue of St.DETROIT -- Even one of Matthew Staffords interceptions quickly turned into two points for Detroit. That was just part of a smothering performance from the Lions defensive front in a 19-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers. "I think we have an opportunity to dominate every particular game," Ndamukong Suh said. "As long as we hone into our keys, get off the ball and do what were taught and execute." Suh and the Lions pressured Aaron Rodgers throughout, and Detroits injury-plagued secondary was never a problem Sunday. Don Carey returned a fumble 40 yards for a touchdown, and the Lions held Green Bay to 223 yards of offence. Detroit (2-1) came in with a secondary decimated by injuries, but Rodgers couldnt take advantage. He was sacked twice and threw for only 162 yards, and Green Bay (1-2) wasnt any better when running the ball. "Theyve got a good defence. Youve got to give them credit," Rodgers said. "As well as our defence played today, we scored seven and we gave up nine with our offence. They didnt even need to score." Stafford was 22 of 34 for 246 yards with two interceptions. The Detroit quarterbacks second interception -- on third-and-long in the second quarter -- actually worked out in his teams favour. His deep pass for Calvin Johnson was picked off near the goal line by Davon House, and although the play was initially ruled a touchback, a review gave Green Bay the ball at its own 1-yard line. The Packers tried a run with Eddie Lacy, and linebacker DeAndre Levy caught him in the end zone for a safety that put Detroit ahead 9-7. "Our defence did an outstanding job of getting off the field all day," Stafford said. "Against that group that they were going up against, that was pretty awesome." Detroits offence finally scored a touchdown in the fourth quarter on a 26-yard run by Reggie Bush. Safety James Ihedigbo (neck) and cornerback Cassius Vaughn (ankle) were inactive for Detroit, which has also lost defensive backs Bill Bentley and Nevin Lawson to season-ending injuries. Linebacker Stephen Tulloch left in the first quarter after hurtting his left knee while celebrating a sack.dddddddddddd After sacking Rodgers, Tulloch jumped through the air and looked as if he was trying to mimic the Green Bay quarterbacks "title belt" celebration, but then he fell to the ground. He tried to play on, but left the game a short while later. "Ive played nine years in the league and Ive never missed a game," Tulloch said. "Ive been fortunate enough to take care of my family and do some good things in the league. I made a play on the quarterback to help my team and unfortunately I got up and in the celebration, and it happened. "Im not embarrassed." The Packers lost despite forcing three turnovers. They tried to establish the run a bit early, and that backfired when Lacys fumble was scooped up by Carey. The defensive back went all the way to the end zone for a 7-0 lead. Carey hadnt played in Detroits first two games this season because of a hamstring problem, and he left this game after aggravating that same injury. Green Bay had won 15 of the past 17 meetings with Detroit, and the Packers were 9-1 with Rodgers playing. The one loss he took part in came in 2010, when he left the game in the first half with a concussion. Green Bay lost that game 7-3 -- until Sunday, that was the only time since Rodgers became the starting quarterback in 2008 that the Packers were held to seven points or fewer. Last season, Rodgers was out with a fractured collarbone when Green Bay lost to the Lions 40-10 on Thanksgiving. Rodgers threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless in the first quarter Sunday to tie it at 7, but the Packers never scored again. NOTES: Detroit rookie Nate Freeses job could be in jeopardy after he missed a 41-yard field goal at the end of the first half. He is 0 for 4 from beyond 40 yards this season and 3 of 7 overall. ... Green Bay LB Clay Matthews left with a groin injury, and House hurt his knee. ... Levy had nine tackles and an assist. Suh and Tulloch accounted for Detroits two sacks. ... Packers LB Julius Peppers sacked Stafford in the third quarter after the Lions reached the Green Bay 7, forcing a fumble that he also recovered. ' ' '
