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.**
