Free Agency Did Little To Increase Super Bowl Odds, Vegas Says

I’m not a betting man, but if I was I would probably put some money on the Minnesota Vikings every single year just out of principle.

That illustrates the exact reason I am not, and should not be, a betting man.

Still, it is interesting to note that the Vikings were not a good bet, according to Vegas, prior to free agency.  Vegas gave the Vikings 75/1 odds to win the Super Bowl prior to free agency beginning in March.

Now, it appears that the house doesn’t view Rick Spielman’s approach to free agency as a good thing, at least in the short term.  They now have 100/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, according to the National Football Post.

The Green Bay Packers are currently the odds makers’ favorite team, giving them 13/2 odds of winning a ring for the second time in three years.
