I require our firewall to allow ODBC connection from clients to the MS SQL Server.

Which ports should be opened for this?

We opened these ports and that did the trick. We can ping the server and create an odbc connection to the server:

1433 (ODBC)
netbios (UDP ports 137, 138 & TCP 139 for NetBIOS over TCP)

According to MSDN:

Default instances of the Database Engine use TCP port 1433 by default.
