The 2011 NFL season just ended and the Ravens are already getting zero respect from Vegas. The MGM Grand already has Super Bowl odds for the 2012-2013 season and the Ravens find themselves way too far down the list.
At 20-1 odds to win Super Bowl XLVII, the Ravens are tied with the New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys, two teams that didn’t even make the playoffs this season. The Ravens are only slightly ahead of the Indianapolis Colts, at 25-1. Seriously? The 2-14 Colts. Insanity.
Here’s an ridiculous list of teams that have better odds to win the Super Bowl than the Ravens: The Atlanta Falcons (18-1), Detroit Lions (18-1), Chicago Bears (17-1), Houston Texans (12-1), San Diego Chargers (12-1), San Francisco 49ers (10-1), New Orleans Saints (10-1), New York Giants (8-1), Philadelphia Eagles (6-1), Pittsburgh Steelers (6-1), Green Bay Packers (11-2), and New England Patriots (5-1).
If you’re a Redskins fan who just read that and thought about leaving a smart comment on this post, just know that Vegas has your team at 125-1 to win the Super Bowl next season.
