NFL Betting – 2011 Super Bowl Odds

February 11, 2010

With the 2010 Super Bowl just ending many fans are getting in on some early betting for favorites of the 2011 Super Bowl. Early lines on all 32 teams to win the Superbowl next year are already set.

With the New Orleans Saints winning the 2010 Super Bowl by a 14-point margin you would think they would rank higher than third to win next year’s NFL championship. The Indianapolis Colts are the odds on favorite to win next year’s Super Bowl in spite of losing to the Saints last season. 7-1 favorites to win next year’s Super Bowl, the Colts are followed by the San Diego Chargers 8-1 odds. New Orleans Saints 9-1 odds, and New England Patriots 10-1 odds round out the leading favorites to win the 2011 Super Bowl.

The Saints are 5-1 favorites to win the NFC championship while the Colts are 3-1 favorites to win the AFC title. Further to the odds, the Colts and the Saints are favored to return to the Super Bowl.

With a dismal 1-15 record, The St. Louis Rams have the worst odds of all NFL teams at 150-1. At 100-1 odds the following teams are also considered to be long shots to win next years’ Super Bowl, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Detroit Lions, and Kansas City Chiefs.

Danica Patrick ready for her Daytona 500 Debut

February 9, 2010

Danica Patrick, former Indy car driver, is already one of the biggest names in professional racing. She is about to become even bigger as she prepares for her NASCAR debut at the 2010 Daytona 500.

Danica Patrick was first woman to win an Indy car race but finished in third at the Indy 500 in 2009. Her skill behind the wheel coupled with her trademark good looks, have made her a star in the world of racing. It can only be a matter of time before she dominates the most popular and toughest racing circuit.

The move won’t just benefit Patrick. The already popular NASCAR circuit should also receive a boost in interest and attention because of Patrick. NASCAR posted record ratings for an ARCA racing event at Daytona Speedway last week, mainly because it was the stock car racing debut for Patrick, who spun out early in the race, but recovered to race to a respectable finish.

Danica Patrick, still a rookie on the NASCAR circuit, will take a little time to adjust to stock cars and intricacies of the tracks. But given her past successes can there be any doubt she will certainly over come those and become one of the most popular drivers on the NASCAR circuit.
