Congrats on your Super Bowl win, Packers. Now move over, because everyone’s already talking about who has the best shot at stealing your title.
Sports betting websites like Bodog wasted no time putting out the odds for who will win next year’s championship game. As you might expect, the current champs lead the “pack” of possible contenders. The odds of them repeating are 7 to 1. Right behind them in the NFC, my favorite team, the 2010 World Champion New Orleans Saints, with 14 to 1 odds. The Falcons, Cowboys and Eagles all have 16 to 1 odds of winning the Lombardi Trophy.
In the AFC, it’s the New England Patriots predicted to win it all. (Yawn!) The Steelers have 10 to 1 odds of winning their 7th Super Bowl next year and right behind them in the odds rankings: the San Diego Chargers.
The two teams with the equivalent of “a monkey flying out of someone’s bum” odds of winning Super Bowl XLVI: those poor Bills and Panthers. Vegas gives them both a 100 to 1 shot.
So what does it all mean? Not a damn thing, other than that my football withdrawals have already started to kick in.
