http://www.nationalfootballpost.com/Postdraft-Super-Bowl-odds.html Post draft were are 30/1 along with 6 teams including the Skins. The Giants are 18/1 and the Eagles 60/1. With ties that puts us as 8th favored but basically middle of the road. The Giants are slight favorites to win the division with 9 wins. We're at 8.5 and the Skins at 8. The Pats are favorites at 5/1 followed by the Niners and Broncos at 6/1. Most projections I've seen are somewhere between 8-11 wins. I've projected 8 the last two years but this year I'm guessing 10 wins. Hopefully that's not the kiss of death for us. So what do you people think of the current odds on the Boys and us predicted to finish second in the East? I do think the Giants and Boys will be the top two teams. I always respect the Skins but I have no real clue this year about them or the Eagles. Perhaps that's my belief you can't count on running QBs. Some have been real threats though so we'll see where the current trend goes.
30 to 1. That's almost like the mathematical probability theory that if there are 32 teams then each team in theory has a 1-in-32 chance of winning the SB.
Personally, I think the odds are about right. If I make it to Vegas before the season starts and the odds are still 30 to 1, I will put some money on the Boys.
That's about right. I would put money on it. Every year in the NFL a team that is not expected to win the SB comes through, why not the Boys.
I wonder what the odds were (preseason) of the Ravens winning it last year? Or the preseason odds on the Giants last two SB winning years?
Yeah, wasn't sure all the why there but it has to do with the amount of money being bet as well; in fact mostly. To another generally the favorite does NOT win the SB although the top favorites often play in the CC game so that's a good bet albeit lower odds. If you put a $100 on ten teams > 16/1 then you have a fair chance of winning some money. You put up a $1000 to win 16-30K.
I believe the Cowboys will make the playoffs and once you get to the dance anyone can take the girl home... Get the drift
So the Pats dump Welker, Gronk has more operations than plaoff TDs and Hernandez is currently shopping for prisons tats, while Danny boy has yet to make it through a full season and they are favourites? That seems a little ...off.
Their system is: 1. Brady 2. Belichick 3. Offensinve Line. The weapons are fairly interchangeable (scored 500 points with vertical offense with Moss, scored 500 points with horizontal offense with Hernandez/Gronk/Welker, and were 7th in scoring with Reche Caldwell and Jabar Gaffney as top weapons)
Actually here in Vegas our Boys are 18/1. I would love 30/1 but I put down 5 dollars and the ticket pays $90. 18/1
Of course the odds are very fluid, especially this early and change based on money flow and injuries.
I think our odds of winning the super bowl are very slim but I think we have a good shot at winning the division as long as everyone plays like they are capable. Anything can happen come playoffs. A wild card team could knock off a favorite and then end up having to come to Dallas for the second round of the playoffs and we could get hot. I realize that hasn't happened for 17 years but maybe our time is coming. I don't know why but this year feels a little different. I like some of the stuff I'm hearing from the players.
I have to assume the Pats odds just changed fairly dramatically (Hernandez) - even before this loser got arrested, I didn't view the Pats as the best team in the league. Oh well, that's why we play the game!
