Bears A Long Shot to Win Super Bowl XLVI
Don’t go booking tickets to Indianapolis for Super Bowl XLVI in February 2012 just yet, at least not if you’re a Bears fan. According to Bodog.com, the Chicago Bears are a long shot to win the title in the upcoming season, going off as a 28-1 shot.
It’s a little surprising that a team that was a few plays away from representing the NFC in Super Bowl XLV last season would be so far down the list of contenders. Check out the full list after the jump.
This table courtesy of The Score:
|Green Bay Packers||7/1|
|New England Patriots||7/1|
|San Diego Chargers||12/1|
|New York Jets||14/1|
|New Orleans Saints||16/1|
|New York Giants||18/1|
|Tampa Bay Buccaneers||30/1|
|Kansas City Chiefs||35/1|
|San Francisco 49ers||40/1|
|St. Louis Rams||40/1|
28 to 1? Seriously???? No respect!
As our handicapping expert Bart would quickly point out, these odds are based on public perception as much as they are about how good the teams actually are. Vegas wants to even out the money between all the teams as much as they can. What do you think? For my money, I’d throw a few sheckles on the Bears. Who is a good value bet?
