NFL Power Rankings have the Champion at No.6

NFL Power Rankings have the Champions at No.6 The ESPN has pulled out the first NFL Power Rankings since the end of the season and a long list of questions have popped up. The most important - how good are the guys at the ESPN when it's time to predict the NFL Power Rankings? You can see the full list of the NFL Power Rankings by clicking here, but for most of the football fans, it's a shocker that the 2008 Super Bowl winner the New York Giants made it only to No.6 on the list, considering there were little changes in the team so far. The reason for the low ranking of the Giants - "Teams other than the Patriots aren't supposed to repeat as Super Bowl champions" - no respect for the Giants whatsoever. And to add insult to injury, the NFL Power Rankings have the Cowboys at No.4, which means that the Super Bowl winner, a.k.a. The Champion, failed to even be the best in its division, the NFC East.

 But to be fair, the odds makers bank little on the New York Giants this season, as well. At the online sportsbook BodogSports, the Giants are sitting on the long 16/1 odds to win the next Big Game, while the Patriots are once again the favorite football team with odds 10/3. The NFL Power Rankings published by the ESPN indeed follow the odds reported on the next Super Bowl winner - the Indianapolis Colts are at 15/2, the Cowboys and the Chargers follow with 8/1 each and the Jacksonville Jaguars hold odds of 12/1 to win the next Championship.
