Had to throw out the obscure Star Wars quote there. Why? Because odds mean nothing to a true fan. We are by nature adverse to logic or reason. We are the devoted. We are the painted freaks of the stadiums. We are the scourge of the sports talk airwaves. We are the loud drunks at the bar. Our wives are Sunday Widows. We are “The Fans” and Fans spit in the face of your precious “odds”.
So what are the “odds” today of the Detroit Lions winning Super Bowl XLIV?
Sports Interaction: Odds to win Super Bowl XLIV 100/1, Odds to win the NFC 100/1, Odds to win the NFC North Detroit Lions 40/1
The Spread: Odds to win Super Bowl XLIV 140/1
Bodog’s latest: Odds to win Super Bowl XLIV 100/1
SPORTSBETTING.com is now giving the Lions an overall rating of: Under 5 (-130). That’s actually improved this month. Those fat guys in the desert must like what they are seeing. OK maybe they just hate the Lions a little less this week as the rating still sucks.
I’m sure these figures will be rivised quickly upwards after Week 1 of the season! Remember there’s only “up” after 0 & 16 folks.
