The fine people at BodogLife.com have wasted no time in accommodating your 2009/2010 NFL gambling needs. They've got odds listed on all NFL teams to win Super Bowl XLIV. See where your team checks in:
Two things: One, if I condoned gambling at all, I'd say this is a pretty good time to bet. The off-season hasn't started yet, and who might fare well in the free agent market doesn't appear to be factored in here. Two, the bets I like the best are in the 25-60 to 1 range.
Given the nature of the NFL these days, it's almost a lock that we'll get to Super Bowl XLIV and say, "Wow, (Team X) is in the Super Bowl? No one could have seen that coming back in February!" That's why I like the teams in that middle range. Some damn oddball team is going to be there, and their number on this chart is probably pretty high right now.
Say, for example, that the Bears are able to pick up a guy like Kurt Warner. They become a little better bet than 30/1, do they not? A team like the Browns has a bunch of offensive talent ... what if they bring in some reliable defensive help and Eric Mangini works some first-year magic? Those are just a couple of examples. There are a bunch of teams that have promising "what-if" scenarios.
