2010 Divisional Odds

2010 Divisional Odds

Below are the first odds I've seen for winning the division in 2010. We're the favorites at -125 (4:5), while the Cards are +250 (5:2).

What that means is that the bookies think we're a little over 3 times as likely to win the division as the Cards, and 3.75 times mroe likely than the Hawks (3:1).

For the NFC West as a whole, we're projected to be the 5th most-contested division (amongst all 4 teams), with the AFC West as the most contested, NFC East 2nd, and AFC South 3rd.

If we narrowed down the odds comparisons only to the top two teams in each division, we're right in the middle of the pack, and the AFC West has the biggest gap (San Diego vs. 3 6-8 win teams).

Bottom Line: The 'market' sees us as good favorites to win the NFC West; the market also thinks that Seattle is nearly as likely to finish in 2nd place as Arizona.

I have a gut feeling that in 2010, Seattle > Arizona. Here are my div record finishes for the west:

SF - 10-6
SEA - 8-8
ARI - 7-9
STL - 4-12
I dont care what the odds are, We will win the west!

Lets hope they can SPIKE a few victories
AFC West with the most contention, really?

Can't see the Raiders being any better.
I thought the Broncos got worse.
I can't see Kansas City turning it around.
San Diego wins the division.

-9fA
I concur.

Raiders got a little better, and with a real qb they might beat someone this year.
Broncos have gutted themselves of all of their talent, and dropped Mike nolan who coached up those overachievers to a good first half defense last year.
Kansas city has a lot of young talent on D, they need another season before I think they will figure it out.

San diego wins by default, but they will choke as long as norv is still there.
I think we have better odds than that. The NFL tries to perpetuate the belief that teams have a chance to win regardless of all things considered. Look at the NFLs home page for a perfect example. There flaunting the raiders as if they have a shot. theres like 5 articles written about the raiders in the last couple of days. Its bad business if teams stay crappy for to long. Because the NFL does this there is a domino effect that even touches the odd makers. How do you think they get there info?? We will dominate for sure! We should have won the division last year, since then the team that did got worst while weve goten signifigantly better

i see

SF 11-5
SEA 8-8
ARIZ 7-9
STL 3-13

put your money on niners this yr and i think the NE will win the division even though everybody loves the Jets....i guess people seem to think Sanchez and his 5 int's per game was just a rookie thing and not a bad decision thing.

The 'market' will determine how these odds change not how a particular company opens up their odds.
