Panthers' Super Bowl odds for 2010

It's never too early to think about the next NFL season, right? So here are some very early odds, courtesy of online gambling site, on who will win the 44th Super Bowl one year from now. The Panthers, as you can see, are 18-1 -- less of a long shot than defending NFC champ Arizona, which is 30-1. New England and Dallas are the favorites, for whatever that's worth.

Those odds are just plain comical. New England as the favorite I can understand, but Dallas right behind them at 9/1 is a flat out joke. Is there any reason to expect they will be better next year? The Giants will be without Plaxico, one would expect, for at least the first four games of next season.

I think the Patriots, Steelers, and Colts, and Ravens (all AFC!) would be my top four. In the NFC I would say the Panthers are the favorites, but the big question marks surrounding Peppers and Gross make that iffy.

Gambling odds don't always reflect the actual odds, instead they often use mathmatical equations to analyze the risk of certain odds against the number of plausible takers. Because of popularity, I'm sure there are a lot of people willing to take the cowboys at 9/1 with blatant disregard for reason. In essence cowboy fans are stupid and bookies are taking advantage of that fact.

Well, this is different from the odds that I heard shared on the Mike & Mike show on ESPN earlier this week. From what I recall (and this was on Tuesday morning, I believe) they had New England and Pittsburgh tied at 6 to 1, followed by the Colts and the Giants at 8-1, and the Panthers and Chargers at 10-1. (Those odds surely assume that Gross and Peppers resign with the Panthers.)
