It's nearly two weeks away, but Vegas is already pegging the Colts as early favorites over the Saints in Super Bowl XLIV.

Indianapolis, which won Super Bowl XLI against the Bears, is a four-point favorite according to a Las Vegas bookmaker.

Sean Van Patten of Las Vegas Sports Consultants explains that the Colts' Super Bowl experience gives them the edge of the Saints, who haven't made the NFL's title match since entering the league in 1967.

 "The big factor here is that Indy has been there," Van Patten told the Associated Press. "The experience factor is such a huge thing when it comes to the Super Bowl."

The Saints' offense was ranked No. 1 in the league while the Colts' offense is led by NFL MVP Peyton Manning. Both the Saints (13 games) and the Colts (14 games) began the season with impressive unbeaten streaks.
