    The San Diego Chargers, not the Indianapolis Colts, are listed as 9-2 favorites to win next year's Super Bowl after posting an NFL-best 14-2 regular-season record in 2006, according to Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which advises Nevada sports books on their betting lines.

    The newly crowned champion Colts and Peyton Manning, the Super Bowl's MVP, are at 5-1, the second choice among the NFL's 32 teams.

    "The Chargers were clearly the best team this season, and they're probably not going to look much different next year," Mike Seba, a senior oddsmaker at Las Vegas Sports Consultants, said.

    San Diego was the favorite to win this year's Super Bowl when the playoffs began. Led by league MVP LaDainian Tomlinson and his record 31 touchdowns, San Diego scored an NFL-best 30.8 points a game, then lost 24-21 to the New England Patriots in the playoffs.

    As 9-2 favorites, a winning $2 wager on the Chargers would yield a profit of $9.

    Chicago, which was the best team in the NFC, is 7-1 to win its first championship since 1985. The New England Patriots are 9-1.
    The New Orleans Saints and Cincinnati Bengals are 12-1, followed by the Baltimore Ravens at 14-1 and the Seattle Seahawks at 15-1.

    The Oakland Raiders, who had the NFL's worst record last season at 2-14, have the longest odds to win the NFL championship next season, at 150-1.
