One bad pass by Peyton Manning hasn't cost the Indianapolis Colts any cachet.

Manning and the Colts are favored to win next year's Super Bowl, according to odds released Monday by BetUS.com.

Indianapolis is a 7-1 favorite to take home the NFL championship, followed by the San Diego Chargers (8-1), New Orleans Saints (9-1) and the New England Patriots (10-1).

The St. Louis Rams, coming off a 1-15 season, are the longest shot on the board at 150-1.

The Colts were 5-point favorites in the Super Bowl on Sunday, but Drew Brees and the Saints rallied for a 31-17 victory. New Orleans sealed the upset when Tracy Porter intercepted Manning's pass and returned it for a touchdown late in the fourth quarter.

Indianapolis is 3-1 to get back to the Super Bowl, while New Orleans is 5-1.
