There are still eight teams alive to win Super Bowl 50 this year, but the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook crew felt good enough about next year’s numbers that they offered betting Monday on Super Bowl LI (51). Three teams opened up as 8-1 co-favorites – the Patriots, Seahawks and Steelers – with Packers and Cardinals coming in at 10-1. The first 31 teams listed have odds at 60-1 or less showing there is a lot of respect for the parity in the league.
However, Cleveland is the one exception with little respect given at all at 200-1 odds. A poor front office making one poor draft pick after another, a weak coaching staff and an immature QB are pretty good reasons to doubt the Browns in 2016. Perhaps the new baseball executive Cleveland hired can turn things around.
