Super Bowl Odds

By Editorial Staff

I know, I know. We’re all sick of hearing about Tom Brady’s injury. Because he’s out for the season, check out these new Super Bowl odds from Bodog: New England went from 7/2 to 20/1. According to Bodog’s Sportsbook Manager, Richard Gardner,

"“The media has it correct that there never has been one injury, so early in the season, that has affected football and a team’s chance of winning more than the Tom Brady injury.  That a team like Indianapolis can go out and play terrible at home and have their odds reduced because of one injury is unprecedented.  The Patriots are still favored to make the playoffs, but have fallen into being categorized as no better than the 6th or 7th best team in the AFC until Matt Cassel proves differently.”"

As of special interest to us here at P.O., the Broncos went from 50/1 to 25/1.
