Even though they seemingly addressed the running back deficiency everyone was blathering about prior to the draft, the Green Bay Packers 2014 Super Bowl odds haven’t changed. However, the San Francisco 49ers became the clear-cut favorite.
The 49ers stayed at 7/1, but the Denver Bronocs, who were previously 7/1, moved back to 15/2.
That puts them even with the Patriots. The Seahawks are next at 10/1, followed by the Packers and Falcons at 12/1.
So what did the 49ers do that was so damn fantastic in the draft? Well, nothing really. Vegas is telling us Denver did something less than fantastic. That includes, apparently, drafting Wisconsin running back Montee Ball in the second round.
The Ravens were one of the few teams to see their odds improve after the draft, moving from 20/1 to 16/1. The Minnesota Vikings also improved — from 50/1 to 40/1.
They were joined by the Bucs — 60/1 to 50/1 — and Raiders — 100/1 to 75/1.
I took the Pack at 10:1 at the Aria in early April. Not sure where 12:1 came from in the last month. The Aria must know what’s up.
Favorites to win the Super Bowl have about as much luck as favorites at the Derby. So, good luck with that.
I landed in Vegas in late December of 2010, the Sunday the Packers played the Giants at Lambeau. With the Packers needing to win out to make the playoffs, they were 15-1 at that time.
A cousin of mine was in Vegas earlier that year and got them at 18-1. Basturd.
So who got in the Derby?
I just read that AR12 is going to start throwing left handed to make it fair, that is why that line changed from 10/1 to 12/1.
Gb is overrated. Hope the “all mighty” Rodgers breaks his leg. Then the GB fans will drop off like flies.
Your mother is overrated too but at least she swallows.
