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.
