The 2011 NFL betting season could be marred by a lockout, and we are still up in the air with how the new collective bargaining agreement is going to look, but regardless, we’re already set to look at the Super Bowl 46 odds.
Here is how some of the teams stack up next season:
Defending Champs: Green Bay Packers (7-1 odds) – The Pack are going to be an incredibly talented team this year once again, as they are only going to be better thanks to the fact that they should have both Ryan Grant and Jermichael Finley back in the fold this coming season. Aaron Rodgers has proven that he is one of the brightest young signal callers in the league, and he is sure to be able to move this team to the next level once again. Definitely don’t count out the idea of this becoming a dynasty.
The Forgotten Team: San Diego Chargers (10-1 odds) – My, how quickly we have forgotten about the Chargers! The Bolts had one of the top offenses and one of the top defenses in the league over the course of these last few seasons, and you know that there is no lack of talent with Philip Rivers slinging the ball all over the place. This is a make or break year for Head Coach Norv Turner and General Manager AJ Smith. San Diego will be back in the playoffs and should some real noise this coming year.
The Likely Suspects: New England Patriots (6-1 odds) – The Patriots are the favorites to win it all again this coming season, and for good reason. You know that they are going to go out and find a receiver for Tom Brady to throw to, which is only going to make the league’s MVP all the more important next year. This should also be a better season for a New England which did lead the league in turnovers forced, but was also very iffy in terms of yardage and points against. Head Coach Bill Belichick won’t let this team stay down for long, and back to back opening game losses in the playoffs at home won’t sit well.
The Team You Don’t See Coming: Arizona Cardinals (65-1 odds) – Why not, right? After all, we’re still in a position where some team has to win the NFC West just like the Seattle Seahawks did last year, and if there is a team that is remotely close to getting to a championship type of level, it is Arizona. We have proof that the Cards are just one player away, as Kurt Warner was really the only major change from a team that went to the Super Bowl and the one that barely found its way to respectability this year. Arizona has a high draft choice this year as well, and it could find itself doing something similar to what the St. Louis Rams did last season with Sam Bradford transforming that franchise.
