    Anyone here take a bet on the Falcons to win the Super Bowl?

    Opening odds in Vegas in March had the Falcons at odds of 16,550 to 1 to win the Super Bowl!

    The Falcons this weekend are only a Panthers loss and a Falcons win away from getting the #2 seed and that of course means they may need only 3 more consecutive wins

    If you bet on the Falcons,good luck! ;)

    Curious, what did the Dolphins open at. I got to think it was about the same of a long shot.

    The Dolphins were at 14,550 to 1 odds according to Vegas

    More notable HUGE odds you could have bet on with these teams that have legitamate chances to win it all are...

    The Ravens 6,550-1
    The Titans 4,250-1
    The Panthers 5,250-1

    Looking at those numbers ad considering how up and down L teams are every year, seems like it would be worth it to $10 on the bottom ten teams.

    Do you have a link because I didn't see anywhere near that high odds. I saw Rams at 80-1 and they were comparable to those teams....

    Yeah, this 16K thing is total crap. I haven't gone to Vegas in a few years but I've seen hundreds of futures bets and they don't offer bets like that. It's just not true.

    I think he's talking odds at the start of the season.

    You aren't getting those odds at any time, ever. Not at the start, middle or end of a season. At best you might get something around 1% of that (165/1).

    I frequently bet futures and there's no possible way odds were that high. Rarely are teams more than 200-1 in the NFL to win the Super Bowl.

    Was it possible you saw the odds at Falcons +16500? That equates to 165 to 1 odds.

    For example, last I saw the "money line" for the Bills to win tomorrow were +220, which means you win 2.2 dollars for every 1 you wager, not 220 for every 1.

    Which would make
    The Ravens 6,550-1 65.5-1
    The Titans 4,250-1 42.5-1
    The Panthers 5,250-1 52.5-1
    which is more likely.

    Otherwise you could lay $10 on each team and be guaranteed a profit.....

    You could be right about those odds which is more sensible,I thought those odds were nuts myself
