We still get no respect....

I saw this link and found it interesting that both the Giants and Cowboys are more of a favorite to win the superbowl next year than the skins...we have the same odds as Philly....

Re: We still get no respect....

Look at it this way - we're favored against the ENTIRE NFC West, minus Seattle:
St. Louis = 1/50
Arizona = 1/60
SF = 1/100

Total odds = 14/300, or 1/23

Sorry for the math, but that means we have 1 in 20 odds of winning, while the odds that ANY of those three teams wins is 1 in 23.

Yeah - Seattle ain't counterfeit.

Talk about no respect, the steelers win the SB and then see the colts (who they destroyed) and seattle be favored above them.

Re: We still get no respect....

The odds I saw were Philly and Washington and 20/1, Dallas and NY at 22/1.

When I see Dallas at 10/1, I think it's good to be a casino.

Odds have nothing to do with respect, it's all about getting the betting public to spend their hard earned money.

True but its also about getting the public to bet that money across the board so the casino does not get cleaned out by too many bets on one team.

Exactly, and it's got zero to do with respect.

Because douche bag Cowgirl fans will bet against any odds that Middle America's Team will win the big one, and Vegas likes to give them the worst odds possible. They're like the Yankees, except they suck.

I wish the Skins were more of a long shot, because I really want to bet. I can probably get 50 to 1 though if I bet against a Cowgirl fan.

Re: We still get no respect....

its not likelyhood they'll be there, it the odds they need to get people to spend money.

They don't care about being right, only about making money.
