Vegas odds to win 2010 Super Bowl

Vegas odds to win 2010 Super Bowl 


The New England Patriots, who failed to make the National Football League playoffs this season, are favored to win the Super Bowl next year by Las Vegas oddsmakers.

 

The Patriots, with former Most Valuable Player Tom Brady’s probable return at quarterback after a knee injury sidelined him for most of the season, are 6-1 favorites to win the NFL championship on Feb. 7, 2010, according to Las Vegas Sports Consultants, which advises casinos on betting lines. The team was undefeated last season until losing the Super Bowl to the New York Giants.

The Texans are a 40-1 shot for the title.

“The Patriots coming into this year were overwhelming favorites based on what they did last year,” said Mike Seba, Sports Consultants’ senior oddsmaker. “They’re going to have pretty much the same team as long as Brady comes back, so they should be the favorites again.”

The Pittsburgh Steelers, who are 6.5-point favorites against the Arizona Cardinals in the Feb. 1 Super Bowl, are second to New England for next year’s game at 7-1. The Giants and Indianapolis Colts are 8-1.

The Patriots this season became only the second team in NFL history to miss the playoffs after finishing with an 11-5 record. Brady was sidelined with a season-ending knee injury in the team’s opener in September.

Matt Cassel filled in and threw for 3,693 yards, with 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions, as the Patriots narrowly missed the postseason. New England won three of the past seven Super Bowls with Brady at quarterback.

The Dallas Cowboys have 9-1 odds to win the 2010 Super Bowl, while the Baltimore Ravens, who lost to the Steelers in the American Football Conference championship game, are 11-1. The Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles and Tennessee Titans, all playoffs teams this season, have 12-1 odds.

I'll take 40-1 odds. I think we have just as good a chance as anyone else in our division.  Each one has weaknesses.  I believe we are about 1 to 2 players away from truly competing with anyone in the league.  I also predict two primetime night games next year.

The Cardinals were probably around that 40-1 mark before this season started.
If the Texans can improve on defense I think we can definitely compete for a Playoff spot next season.

It's not necessarily that they really believe it.
They are in the business of making money.
They set the numbers to get people to bet.......
They only have to pay off on the Super Bowl winning team, the rest they make money on.

Hey BRT...

A couple of us over at the Fins board were wondering what you thought of those 40-1 odds. That is pretty enticing and you guys are not that far off! I told them over there that if I wouldn't feel like such a traitor, I'd throw a few bucks down on you  guys!
If you want me to see things from your point of view, kindly remove your head out of your butt!

Yeah, that'd be a nice payday.
It's Vegas though.....
They set those numbers to get action.
They only have to pay off on one team.
The rest is money in their pocket.

The Cardinals are showing that if you can just get to the Playoffs, you have a shot.
I think our offense is capable of winning every week.
Just gotta fix the defense........

Put the money down and buy some Dolphins stuff if you win........

40-1 is certainly worth throwing $100 on.  If they can sign a big free agent pass rusher and have another good draft, sky is the limit.
