As with most other sports, fans of the NFL are way too fanatical for the thought of waiting until nearer the start of the season to start speculating about how teams will do, to even enter their minds. Indeed the dust had barely settled on the Ravens’ Super Bowl triumph before thoughts started to turn to the next season, and this is probably most true of those NFL fans who like to bet on it. One thing that can be noted from the odds released by the bookies for the pre-season is that the Ravens are not among the favorites to win either the AFC or the Super Bowl this season.
It’s true that, with odds of around 9/1 for the former, at most sports betting sites and 22/1 for the latter they are hardly outsiders either – but given their performance against the 49ers in that final, it is still a surprise. Partly these longer odds are a reflection of the loss of senior players like Ed Reed and Ray Lewis, and partly a reflection of their tough schedule. The team they defeated in that final – the 49ers – are highly rated by the bookmakers again this time, with odds of just 8/1 for the Super Bowl, despite the departure of safety Dashon Goldson, as they have strengthened wisely. However the best tip may be to wait and see how teams perform once the season has started, and while you wait, you can try online us slots to keep you busy.
Particularly as you can now get casino games based around the NFL, with one of the most popular being the slots game $5 Million Touchdown. One reason for the popularity of this game is the fact that it isn’t called $5 Million Touchdown for nothing – that’s the size of the top jackpot. However the game bonuses requiring you to pass from player to player in an attempt to score a touchdown is another reason, especially given the high quality of the video graphics involved. Furthermore, with the presence of a wild symbol (the referee) on the NFL-related reels, you have a brilliant chance of winning something – even if you don’t scoop that amazing maximum jackpot.
