In the latest Vegas odds, released by 247sports.com, the Cardinals are 12-1 favorites to win the Super Bowl. When was the last time the Cardinals had such good odds at any given point in the season? Four teams have better odds.
The Denver Broncos are at 18-5, the New England Patriots are 6-1, the Seattle Seahawks are 17-2, and the Green Bay Packers are 9-1. Denver and New England I get but Seattle? At 5-3 and two games behind the Cardinals and even though they are the defending champions I’m not sure I’m out there putting money on them.
Of course you can say there are still 25 teams that are within two games of a playoff spot or in position for a playoff spot. There is a lot of football still to be played. Just ask the Cardinals. Of the eight games they have left, five are games against NFC West divisional foes.
The Cardinals also have games at home against Detroit and Kansas City and a road game at Atlanta outside the NFC West. One game at a time but it is always interesting to see what the oddsmakers think of your team.
