Super Bowl XLIX Futures: Is Arizona a Contender or Pretender?
Cardinals NFL best record isn’t bringing chalk status
Arizona backers are fairly excited as the Cardinals were posted with a +4000 preseason money line price to capture Super Bowl XLIX at Bodog. That said, cashing in on the Red Birds will be easier said than done as injuries are starting to pile up on both sides of the ball. Despite their 10-3 record, Bookmakers have bumped the Cardinals SB XLIX Championship odds down to just +2500 which is good for 11th on the board. Possibly poised to fall like a house of cards, we’re not sure if Arizona has enough healthy horses so the short answer is pretenders. This is especially true when you consider the Cards season ending schedule – it’s not easy.
Will Arizona even capture the NFC West Championship?
Perhaps even more telling, Arizona isn’t even the favorite to win their division as the Seahawks -300 money line trumps the Cardinals +200 NFC West championship odds. While he wasn’t posting huge numbers, losing explosive RB Andrea Ellington is a big blow to the Cardinals offense as he was a primary focus for opposing defenses. QB Drew Stanton is 2-2 since taking over for injured Carson Palmer but he is pedestrian at best and Errington was one of his safety valves in the passing game. If the Cardinals loss to the Rams, Seahawks and 49ers to close out their season – which is possible – they may miss the 2015 NFL postseason party.
NFL Championship Futures Betting: Something strange could still happen in New Orleans but it looks like we are down to one NFC horse in the race to claim Super Bowl XLIX. That being the Green Bay Packers (down to +325 from their +1000 preseason odds) who need to get better in pass defense if we hope to cash our August futures bet. Truth be told, we are leaning towards New England winning the NFL title on February 1, 2015, at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, AZ. As such, we’ll back QB Tom Brady and his New England Crew (+350) as an additional Super Bowl XLIX futures bet with a 400 unit wager.
