NFL Lockout Betting Update

Tom Brady has drawn a lot of headlines lately. Unfortunately, those headlines have had nothing to do with the New England quarterback's arm or the fact that his Patriots are currently co-favorites to win Super Bowl XLVI.

Brady's been in the spotlight recently for a couple of reasons. First, he got named as a lead plaintiff in the antitrust suit filed against the recently decertified union. Depending upon whose spin you want to believe this is because Brady relates better to the wide spectrum of NFL players, or because his name comes alphabetically before Drew Brees and Peyton Manning.

Brady's other recent headline grab was for his teary reaction to the latest American Idol elimination. Will Brady shed a few more tears if all or part of the NFL season gets canceled, or will it simply give him more time to spend with his supermodel wife?

Bettors' attention should be on the latest Super Bowl futures at Bovada. After the Green Bay Packers knocked off the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV they were anointed as favorites for Super Bowl XLVI. Check in now and you'll find both the Packers and Patriots as co-favorites at 7/1.

The Packers being placed atop the odds list should be a given. Aaron Rodgers is entering his prime and the Packers' offense will be fierce as long as Greg Jennings, Donald Driver, and Jermichael Finley can all stay healthy. Defensively the Packers are also among the NFL's elite, led by stalwarts Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and B.J. Raji.

The Patriots being listed as the Packers' equal on the odds list may be a surprise. New England was a solid 14-2 last season, but they failed to get it done in the playoffs and were knocked out in their postseason opener for the second consecutive season. Couple their playoff letdowns with their usually-strong defense ranking just 25th last season, and could the Patriots' current odds be based more on reputation than on performance?
