I love me a good futures bet. Here are the current odds to win the 2013 SB. Anyone like any of these?
Green Bay: 5-1
Kansas City: 50-1
New England: 7-1
New Orleans: 6-1
New York (Giants): 10-1
New York (Jets): 20-1
San Diego: 15-1
San Francisco: 20-1
St Louis: 100-1
Tampa Bay: 100-1
A couple things that jump out at me are:
- San Fran being 20-1 seems like good value for a team that was a dropped fumble away from going to the SB. However, they will have a tougher schedule next year, and they won't sneak up on anyone. I am also inclined to worry about Alex Smith regressing from last year, or Hardbaugh reading too much of his own press.
- Denver being 50-1 doesn't surprise me, but I hope the over the top Tebow lovers realize what this means.
- I think my favorite "long" shot (50-1 or higher) is KC. Obviously I don't predict they will win it, but for 50-1, it might be worth a shot. Oakland is a close second, as I could see either of those two teams getting in the post season.
- Chicago at 30-1 seems good too (I know, I know, I'm a homer).
- Philly at 12-1 is
though I realize they will be better next year.
