Panthers are 150-1 to win Super Bowl

Bodog sent me its current Super Bowl odds, which are below. The Panthers and Buffalo Bills are the longest shots to win the Super Bowl, at 150-1.

But get this -- the Panthers odds have actually gotten worse than they were three months ago, BEFORE this current spending spree that they're on. On May 4th, shortly after the NFL draft, they were only 100-1.

So let's just say oddsmakers aren't as impressed as folks locally have been with Carolina's recent upgrades. New England has surged ahead of Green Bay in the past three months and now ranks as the slight Super Bowl favorite.

For your perusal, listed in order of shortest to longest odds to win the next Super Bowl:

Why do you continue to call the recent moves "upgrades"? They wer lateral at best, and moves down in some cases. We have dont nothing to address the core issues, the HORRIBLE O-line pass blocking, and the inability to hire anyone in the D secondary. We are holding last year's position. That is, the worst in the league. LONG year to come.

I like those odds! I'll put a dollar on that.

To poster above, with Otah healthy, we have a top 5 OL.

Carolina may eventually be good, but just too many holes and not enough depth. Brees, Ryan and Freeman throwing against an iffy and thin secondary and, as of today, no starting QB. Good, even great starters at a lot of positions, but not much to back them up. Hard to put them this season above NOLA, ATL or TB.

$1000 each on Saints and Falcons at 16-1 each would be a decent bet. Chances are it is one of them playing Green Bay in NFC Champioship.....get past the Packers then anything can happen in Super Bowl.

I checked this out with the Psychic Hot Line, and a lady with the bizarre accent said the Panthers wouldn’t win the SB, but would be fun to watch this season. Either that, or she gave me a recipe for Jambalaya. I’m not really sure…

Damn. Guess all that Qb hype by the local birdcage liner is pretty much meaningless to the rest of the world.

Scam who?

Wow, with those new odds, we tumbled to the bottom from...uh...the bottom.

scott you must search constantly to find something negative to feed the negative nabobs that follow you. at least this wasn't one of your lazy
"the 5 things no one gives a crap about" columns.
this team had no coaching last year and those injured knew it was wise to sit until a new administration got here. they will not be great, but better than you will give them credit for. difference...coaching, attitudes.

These odds reflect the opinion of the people who actually make bets. If a team gets too much money bet on it, the odds go down. If very few people bet on the Panthers, the odds go up, to entice people to bet. Bodog pays the winners and keeps the rest. They want lots and lots of money on the rest.
