ScoresAndOdds.com released their futures for the 2010 Super Bowl winner and somehow the Cowgirls are practically at the top of the list. In fact, 2 teams that didn't make the playoffs are the top two. The Pats I can understand since they won 11 games, and Tom Brady is coming back. But the Cowboys? They have the most over-rated safety of all time, they're in the middle of cleaning house from all the thug players they brought in (Tank, Pacman, etc). They dumped 3 picks from their 2009 draft for Roy Williams (a 1st ,3rd, and 6th rounds picks - got a 7th pick back from Detroit). Tony Romo hasn't won a playoff game...ever, and is getting publicly lectured by Aikman how to lead a team. Gil Lebreton of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram notes that in the last three years Romo was the starter at Eastern Illinois, his team lost each of its three first-round games in the Division I-AA playoffs. "Superman had his kryptonite," Lebreton wrote. "Tony Romo has the playoffs."
Sure, their offense is high-scoring, but this is a team imploding from within. If it's 10-1 for them to win the Super Bowl, I need to find a bookie that will take my 30-1 bet the Cowboys won't make the playoffs. Who in their right mind would take the Cowboys on this bet when the Steelers are the same odds?
New England Patriots 8-1
The other surprising prop is that the Redskins and Texans have the same odds of winning the Super Bowl at 40-1. Really? The 40-1 seems about a right, perhaps a little low, but I was just surprised to see us as the same as the Texans. Not too flattering at all.
