    Haha, those aren't real odds.
    I'll give you the Vikings and give you 12-1 odds.

    No, that's realistic, everybody out there has a one in twelve chance to win.

    If winners were randomly drawn out of a lottery or something, yes.

    Amazingly, the Packers are by far, the biggest favorite this week according to Las Vegas and the casinos.
    We are a 9-point favorite over the Vikings, but they have the bet on Minnesota at -130, meaning they do not want bets on that side, instead they want to bait people to take the Packers -9, as they have that at +110 for your money.

    Here is where I bet from, so this is live and legit. http://sports.bovada.lv/sports-betting/nfl-football-lines.jsp

    Their current odds to Win the Super Bowl are:

    • Denver 11-4
    • New England 4-1
    • San Francisco 6-1
    • Atlanta 7-1
    • Packers 8-1
    • Seattle 11-1
    • Houston 15-1
    • Washington 18-1
    • Baltimore 22-1
    • Minny 40-1
    • Cinci 45-1
    • Indy 45-1

    Now remember this though: last year, the Giants were in the same position here as Washington or Baltimore were.
    And the year before, we were in the same position as Minnesota was, although not nearly that long of a shot. But we had to go on the road for 3 playoff wins.

    Can I take the odds for the Broncos to NOT win the Super Bowl? I've never seen Peyton Manning perform well in the playoffs, even in his Super Bowl championship year the running game and the defense dragged him to the finish line.

    True. He's been like Favre in the playoffs kinda.... stats and stats and stats in regular seasons. But rarely greatness in the post season, and quite a few choke moments to end seasons.

    That's why I almost picked Brady over him in the AFC Title game in my pool. I can't wait for that game.
    Brady has been clutcher. But I like Denver's defense more. And like the home crowd. Also I recall Brady hasn't had as great a record vs Denver as most teams.

    Sports Illustrated came today and Peter King has his Elite 8 Predictions, and he has us winning this week, next week, and then beating Denver in the Super Bowl.

    Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers; 7 p.m. Saturday on Fox


    The line: San Francisco -3. Bookmakers are confident with this spread. They don’t want to move it to less than a field goal despite strong early support on the underdog Packers. That’s why books are charging extra vig on the Packers.

    Green Bay is listed at +3 (-120 or -125 all over town) with San Francisco coming back at -3 (Even or +105). The Packers were favored by 5.5 points at home against the 49ers in the teams’ first game of the season. San Francisco won outright, 30-22.

    [​IMG]

    San Francisco 49ers linebackers Patrick Willis, left, and NaVorro Bowman, right, celebrate after defeating the New Orleans Saints 36-32 to advance to the NFC Championship Game.

    The matchup: In the divisional round of last year’s playoffs, the 49ers hosted the offensively surging New Orleans Saints. As a slight 2.5-point favorite, the Saints drew the bulk of the public-betting support. The game is remembered for the 49ers' dramatic comeback in the final seconds that gave them a 36-32 victory.

    But San Francisco led for nearly 90 percent of the game, including going up 17-0 at the start, and won in large part because of its physicality.

    History could be repeating itself. The Packers possess advantages in the skill areas — most glaringly at quarterback with Aaron Rodgers and wide receiver with their arsenal of weapons — but are far behind the 49ers upfront on both sides of the ball. The left side of the 49ers offensive line, consisting of Pro Bowlers Mike Iuapati and Joe Staley, is probably the best in the NFL.
    They should push around a Packers defensive front, which DVOA ranks 14th in the NFL against the run, enough to create major openings for running back Frank Gore. The 49ers achieved great success with that during the first meeting with the Packers, as they ran the ball 32 times for 186 yards.

    But now they’re even more poised to attack Green Bay’s weakness with mobile quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the helm instead of Alex Smith. The best argument against the 49ers is health.
    While Green Bay finally has all its players back, San Francisco is dealing with a significant injury to defensive end Justin Smith. The veteran has a torn bicep but may play against Green Bay. San Francisco needs Smith. Without him, Defensive Player of the Year Aldon Smith hasn’t recorded a sack. The result could hinge on the 49ers pressuring Rodgers.





    Pick: San Francisco -3
