STEELERS NOW JUST AN EVEN BET TO MAKE PLAYOFFS

By Alan Robinson

The Steelers’ 1-2 start has dropped their odds of winning the Super Bowl to 20-1, according to Bovada.la. And the odds to them making the playoffs are even.

Kevin Bradley of Bovada.lv says no betting lines have been moved because the regular officials have returned:
“It has been such a crazy start to the NFL season with upsets, comebacks, and the whole replacement referee situation that has also transpired has factored into our Super Bowl odds. Houston who is 3-0 has emerged as the favorites at 5-1 and we have had 4 different favorites (GB, NE, SF, HOU) in the first 4 weeks of the season something that is extremely rare, in fact I cannot remember ever seeing this happen before. All that being said, I was very happy to hear that the referee situation has been resolved and we can get back to business and not worrying about and discussing if they were actually impacting lines and totals. Even thought the regular refs are back for this week’s games, we have not moved any spreads or totals as a result of that.”

For amusement purposes only, here are some other NFL odds.
