With sports betting now legal in New Jersey, and even with football season still more than two months away, bets can be placed on one important NFL proposition: Who will win the Super Bowl?
Accompanying an article from Connor Orr of SI.com is a photo of the betting board at Monmouth Park, revealing some of the odds to win the 53rd installment of the game.
The Browns are only 75-1 underdogs to win it all. Making that number even more amazing is the fact that the Bengals are at 125-1.
Other teams deemed by oddsmakers to be less likely to win it all than the Browns include the Bills (100-1), the Dolphins (100-1), the Buccaneers (100-1), the Colts (100-1), the Jets (100-1), the Cardinals (100-1), and Washington (100-1).
The Bears also have 75-1 odds.
Then there’s this: The Seahawks, one of the best teams of the past six years, have 50-1 odds. While the Seahawks are hardly favorites to win it all, they seem like a MUCH better bet to climb the mountain than a team that hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2002 — and that has won only one game in the past two seasons.
