For the gambler in you

If you’re wondering which NFL teams the gambling website believes are the co-favorites to win the Super Bowl, wonder no more: the site has the Jets and Steelers at 13/2 odds to prevail in the league championship game. If you want to know the favorite in the NFC, that’d be the Giants who are 8/1 favorites.

My favorite parts of the weekly e-mail from bodog, though, are the prop bets. Some highlights:

Will Lovie Smith be the head coach of the Bears for Week 1 of the 2011 NFL Regular Season?

Yes +150

No -200

Will Mike Singletary be the head coach of the 49ers for Week 1 of the 2011 NFL Regular Season?

Yes +150

No- 200

Will Norv Turner be the head coach of the Chargers for Week 1 of the 2011 NFL Regular Season?

Yes -105

No -125

I find it fascinating that the firings of Singletary and Smith are receiving the same odds. I’d be much more inclined to say that Singletary will be out of a job instead of Smith. But yeah, I also think Turner is as good as gone.

DeAngelo Hall – How many Interceptions will he record from Week 8 to Week 17 of the 2010 NFL Regular Season?

Over/Under 2.5

After his four-interception burst against the Bears last week, I’d say Hall will go over. After all, he’ll face Minnesota on Nov. 28, and if Brett Favre is playing, he’s usually good for an interception or two. Plus, the Redskins have got Jacksonville on Dec. 26, and there’s no telling what interception risk the Jaguars will play at the quarterback spot.

Will Brett Favre be benched at any point this season (injuries do not count towards wager)

Yes +200

No -300

I’m not even sure how this would work, especially with this weekend’s game vs. the Patriots. If Favre doesn’t play Sunday, would that automatically be because he’s injured? What if he says afterward that he could have played, that he, in fact, wanted to play? Is it possible for this wager even to have a clear conclusion?

Troy Smith – Total Passing Yards Week 8 vs. Denver

Over/Under 200.5

I could probably better answer this question if the site laid out the bet in meters rather than yards.

On Favre's odds to being benched, does it count if he's benched during a game? Or is it only benched prior to starting a game?  If it's the latter then it's a suckers way Childress sits him unless it's due to injury. But during a game, yea, he'll probably bench him after his next pick 6, or if the Vikes get way behind and he's ineffective. Gotta know these Vegas wise guys' interpretations. They live off suckers who bet with their hearts.

I would take the over on Hall and the under on Troy Smith.  I think Hall gets 5 more picks.  Troy Smith might throw for 150 yards.

I don't think that will affect San Fran's chances too much.
