Super Bowl Odds Released: Falcons are a 25 to 1 Long Shot

25 to 1? I’ll take that bet.

The Falcons have been installed as a 25-to-1 long shot to win Super Bowl 45 and I could not be happier. They are tied for 13th among the favorites to hoist the Lombardi Trophy. They have the 7th best odds in the NFC and are 2nd in the NFC South to the New Orleans Saints (8-to-1).

Hit the jump for all the odds.

Why am I so happy with 25-to-1 odds? Think about this Falcons fans. The last 3 Super Bowl champions were an average of 24.3-to-1 in the preseason.

The Giants were 30-to-1 to win Super Bowl 42. The Steelers were 18-to-1 to win Super Bowl 43. Last season, the Saints won Super Bowl 44. What were their odds? 25-to-1.

Synergy – and a Super Bowl title.

    I read post-draft, the Panthers’ odds went from 40:1 to 30:1 because of Jimmy Clausen… Either way, still a longshot for my Cats, but it’s fun to think about.

    Nice read!

      Thanks for stopping by Eric. That’s crazy about the odds dropping like that after the Clausen pick. I never remember what a team’s odds were in the preseason so it was great to look back and see that the favorites don’t always win. This isn’t baseball. Looking forward to seeing the quarterback battle play out in Carolina. I just want to see who Sean Weatherspoon will sack. Ha!
