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.

2008 Super Bowl odds - Patriots still big favorite The 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.
