Vikings at 8/1 to Win Super Bowl


The Vikings have been one of the biggest stories in the NFL all season, and now, Vegas is warming to them too.  The latest odds (courtesy of Bodog.com) place the Purple at 7/2 to win the NFC, and 8/1 to claim their first Lombardi Trophy.

At 3/1, the Saints are right now considered the best bet to emerge victorious from Super Bowl XLIV in Miami, with the Colts right behind them at 5/1 and the Patriots at 11/2.  New Orleans is the favorite to claim the NFC at 3/2, followed by the Vikings, the Eagles at 13/2 and the Cowboys at 8/1.

If you’re looking to lay down a couple bucks on a long-shot, the Browns, Lions, Chiefs, Rams and Buccaneers are all at 1000/1 to win the Super Bowl.  Considering that those teams would have to run the table to even get back in playoff contention, I’m guessing there won’t be anyone cashing in on that particular bet.

Standard disclaimer:  The above odds were presented for entertainment purposes only.  Gambling is bad.

    I’d love to see Houston go into Indy this weekend, and drop an offensive explosion on the over-rated Colts, because Vegas is crazy if they think Indy is better then Pittsburgh and Baltimore. The Vikings will beat the Saints, if we meet in the playoffs, in fact the only teams i fear being a Vikings fan in the playoffs are Dallas and Philly, because we’ve yet to prove that we can beat either of these teams in the playoffs, let’s end the curse this year, with Favre leading the way.

    If Mike was in controll here, this sight would be booming. You acted like the TT & MM of Green Bay, using and bashing the Vikings, on their so called blog with their logo. I have just looked at this sight, not posted and saw, 1, 2 max 3 posts, to zero. How can a bookie get rights to a Viking logo. Is benie jelinek you.

    xpackerfan, No i’m not Danz, i’m a Vikings fan from Pennsylvania, and unlike yourself i did’nt change teams, because we were’nt doing so well. Try spelling my name right, in all of your frustration, you forgot the r in Bernie. If punks like you open their mouth and call people gay, without knowing the people they’re talking about, go to facebook and look up my name, it’s all there, then you’ll regret shootin your big mouth off. I think you might be the gay one in your love for Mikey. I’m as loyal to the Vikings as Bud Grant, and all fans don’t always agree on everything. Danz has opinions, and you can agree or not agree with him, but don’t talk trash, if you don’t have the facts.

    bernie jelinek – I did not change teams after being a die-hard Packer fan since 1964, I lost respect and could not back them. It ended a few months after Brett “retired from GB”. Wished Brett good luck with the Jets and had no team. Brett, Coach, Team is the win Super Bowl, most exciting game ever in the NFL. AND when the Vikings win it, there will not be any team in the NFL, that won’t be happy. Inasmuch as, every one loves a good ending.

    Agree, apoligize gay lingo uncalled for,okay?

    Xpackerfan, apology accepted. Hey, we’re all fans of the Vikings, so there’s no reason why most of us can’t get along. It’s alright to disagree with each other, and have our own opinions, it makes for good football talk, and would probably be boring otherwise. I agree with you that Mike was a good guy, he was very knowledgable, and he did predict Favre’s return from the start. It was too bad that he and Danz hated each other, then i heard he was banned. I think those two should call a truce, and allow Mike back on the site. It seems like Danz has a lot of negative things to say, i hardly agree with him on a lot of his opinions, especially the negative ones. A lot of sports writers want to spread as much negative spin as possible to attract attention. I like to give my own opinions on my favorite team, without being too critical. I also apologize for the punk remark. I’m 48 years old, and i’m lucky to be married to a great woman, and have 3 young daughters that i love. One thing i think most of us agree on is that our Vikings could very well go all the way and win the Super Bowl, and Favre is our only hope of getting us there, because he’s been there before. I don’t mind arguing with fans, but we should refrain from the name-calling that even i’m guilty of.
