    I could have sworn that the colts before were at 8:1 or 7:1.

    Unbelievable that so many people have bet on them to win it all.

    I don't get it.

    i dont remember what they opened at... sometimes people quote usatoday odds, or espn odds, which are crap, since no one is really backing those odds...
    the odds i listed are real odds that you can place a bet on.

    Remember, these odds are what the bookies guess will balance their books with respect to how many people will bet on each team. So the Colts still have the aura of 'media darlings' and unbelievable hype. If their W-L record drops this year and they bomb out in the playoffs again, I don't think even media hype will give them top odds next year. You have to remember that most of the betting public is probably almost as susceptible to hype, wishful thinking, and rash opinions as posters here. :D

    I was in Vegas in April and posted the odds when I got back. I think the Colts opened at 7/2 and the Pats were 9/2. Remember that the odds are the sportsbook way of anticipating how they can get the most action and win money. Not necessarily how they feel about a particular team. The Cowboy odds reflect that the most, no way they are the third favorite to win the SB, I wouldn't put any NFC team in the top five. But the Soprtsbook feels that if they convince the Cowboys fans that they are going to win, then they will bet on them. The Cowboys are pretty much the closest thing to a hometeam that Vegas has (I know that the Cardinals and the Chargers are physically closer), but there are more Cowboy fans than fans of both those teams combined, so the casinos feel will get more action with those odds.

    Back in 2003, I had a buddy put down $50 on the Pats to win SB XXXVIII, I got something like 12-1, needless to say I flew out to Vegas to cash that ticket!!!!

    it's not vegas, it's the people (money)... vegas sets initial lines, and moves them rapidly if necessary to balance betting.. considering the worst team is 145:1, where would you put the bills? btw 2001 pats were 50:1 before the season started.

    I got +930 at Pinnacle earlier this summer. That is equal to 9.3 to 1 in the terms you are all using.

    Most books get lots of action just before the season begins and so odds tend to go down overall. Put it this way, its not an efficient market where if one team goes down, there's an equal and opposite reaction to bring another team up. With online (offshore) books things are better than just having your local bookie but its still never in the player's favor.

    The near-universal denial of the significance of the loss of Edgerrin James truly does baffle me. Ask most anyone who lost more significant players this offseason, the patriots or the dolts, they'd say the patriots and would likely scratch their head wondering if the dolts had lost anyone at all. It would make a remarkable modern-day-Orwell study.

    Unless you're being sarcastic...80 to 1 odds are not good odds.

    oddschecker.com has daily odds spreadsheet on about 15 different sports books and the quoted New England odds in this thread at 7-1 are worth noting as they would be the lowest quote. The current approx. blended averages of all the odds on oddschecker are: Indy 6-1; NE 8-1-; Carolina 9.5-1; Seattle 10.5-1; Pitt 11.5-1; Den 13-1; Dallas 14-1'

    Since the April 2006 Draft the Patriots odds have gone from approx 10-1 down to 8-1, while Indy's odds have risen from approx 4-1 to 6-1. The odds for Carolina to win SB are tracking lower, while Dallas is tracking higher. The odds for the other contenders' have otherwise shown little movement.
