If you're an honest Vegas sports book :lol: , and you're not trying to entice betting, but just doing math before the season, what odds would you place on the Birds to go all the way? I feel 8:1 is reasonable. Here's the way I look at it: (knock on wood) We will make the playoffs - that's 12:1. At the very least, we will have superior talent at the offensive skill positions as compared to atleast 2/3rds of the supposed playoff teams - that's a conservative 6:1. We should also be penalized for lack of proven success in the playoffs, as well as a kinda s***ty road resume - that bumps it back to 8:1.

I do realize that this is nowhere close to how odds are set, and I do know a good deal about how the odds are set/fluxuate, so please save me the lectures.

I guess the question is, if you're a bookie; what do you feel are fair odds for this team to do it all?

note: I've yet to look at an actual line (swear to freddie falcon), but my guess would be 12:1 as of now in Vegas..

We won't have superior offensive skill position talent to the other NFC playoff teams. The Cowboys, Eagles, Giants, Bears, Packers, Saints, and yes even the 49ers can match up with our offensive skill position players.

15:1
