How Are the Cowboys Favored 2nd to win the 2010 Super Bowl?

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
Dallas Cowboys                                  10-1
Indianapolis Colts                               10-1         
New York Giants                 
                10-1         
Pittsburgh Steelers            
                10-1         
Baltimore Ravens              
                12-1         
Carolina Panthers              
                12-1         
Philadelphia Eagles          
                12-1         
San Diego Chargers         
                12-1         
Tennessee Titans              
                12-1

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.
