Bet on the NFL Let’s start from the top by trimming the fat. You know you will not be seeing the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Seattle Seahawaks, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in this predictions list as they have less than one in 100 odds to take it. Then there is the New York Giants, who probably won’t look good in the odds until 2014.
Now the matchups. Kansas City Chiefs vs. the Green Bay Packers, if these two were to face off the odds are the Packers would take it. Sports betting favors the Indianapolis Colts vs. the New Orleans Saints, obviously the Saints would take it again. The Baltimore Ravens vs. the New Orleans Saints, this matchup would look a lot like Week 15 and we are going to go with a similar result, the Ravens would take it. The Chicago Bears vs. the Pittsburgh Steelers, this one would be very close but the Steelers have the edge. New York Jets vs. the Atlanta Falcons, this would be on the road for the Jets, and would probably be able to upset the Falcons, believe it or not. The Indianapolis Colts vs. the Philadelphia Eagles, the Colts would take it.
Now let’s get to the more likely to happen scenarios.
There are one in six sportsbook odds that the Chicago Bears will face the New England Patriots in the 2011 Super Bowl. Obviously the Patriots. Same odds for the Pats vs. the Green Bay Packers, the Packers lost in the regular season in Week 15 sans Aaron Rodgers, but if they face eachother in the Super Bowl we are likely to see different results: the Packers taking the crown. The New Orleans Saints vs. the New England Patriots, Tom Brady wants it more, we’re giving this game, with one in four odds, to the Pats. Then there is the one in two odds that we will see the Philadelphia Eagles vs. the Patriots, in which case Vick’s week of rest gives the Eagles the upper hand. Also with one in two odds are the Atlanta Falcons vs. the Patriots, and we say the Pat’s and potential MVP Tom Brady will take this one too.
