2008 Super Bowl
odds - Patriots still big favorite
Four NFL teams left, the odds
to win the 2008 Super Bowl still favor the New England Patriots
in a big way.
NFL divisional playoffs are well behind us and the 2008 Super
Bowl berth chase is down to only four football teams. For those
who think that the New England Patriots won't win the Super
Bowl, this is a time of great ripe. At the online sportsbook
Bodog Sports, the New England
Patriots hold odds to win the 2008 Super Bowl at 2/7, likely the
shortest odds on Super Bowl winner since the emerge of the
Internet bookies. For the punters siding with the Pats, this is
an awful news, but for those who are against the Patriots - it
couldn't be better.
The short odds on New England naturally
result in big odds on the rest of the football teams to become
the Super Bowl winner. Following the Patriots, the Green Bay
Packer are listed with the second shortest odds and they are
currently sitting at 9/2, meaning the bookie will pay out 9 on
every 2 bet. Considering that with the Patriots you have to bet
7 to win 2, the odds on the Packers are looking sweet to many
bettors. And if another round of upsets happens this weekend
during the divisional finals, the odds get even bigger. The San
Diego Chargers are now listed with odds to win the 2008 Super
Bowl at 9/1 with Bodog Sports and the New York Giants, who are
set to meet the Packers on Sunday, are the underdog to win the
Super Bowl XLII with odds 11/1.
In retrospect, after the wild card playoffs
at Bodog, the Patriots were listed with odds 2/3 to win the 42nd
Super Bowl, the Green Bay Packers held odds 9/1, the San Diego
Chargers' odds to win the Super Bowl sat at 12/1 and the NY
Giants odds were posted at underdog 20/1.
