Each Saturday, we’ll take the best -- and most clever -- odds collected by bodog.com for the upcoming week and give our take. This is important stuff, perhaps the most important post you’ll read all week. Because if you can’t lose money while watching a game in which you have absolutely no effect, what’s the point of watching sports at all?
Will the Denver Broncos trail at any point in the fourth quarter and still beat the Chicago Bears?
I’m going no, because I don’t think the Broncos will be trailing the Bears in the second half at all. Ah, the power of Tim Tebow (and the deficiency of starting Caleb Hanie).
Who will finish second in NFL MVP voting?
Tom Brady (NE) QB 2/3
Drew Brees (NO) QB 3/2
Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) QB 5/1
Tim Tebow (DEN) QB 10/1
As much as I want to say Tebow -- even if it’s just for some good old fashioned CBSSports.com unity with colleague Gregg Doyel -- I’ll go with Brady to finish behind Aaron Rodgers in the MVP race. Brady is too easy a selection after Rodgers not to pick him.
Will Tony Sparano be the head coach of the Dolphins for Game 1 of the 2012 regular season?
Ha, no. But I think Sparano and his team have done the city proud with the way the Dolphins are playing. You have to think Sparano is impressing somebody, even if that somebody is not Miami owner Stephen Ross.
Will Donovan McNabb sign with an NFL team during the 2011 regular season?
If the Bears, who are in desperate, desperate need of a legit starting quarterback, passes on claiming McNabb, you have to think nobody else will be interested. The more interesting question: is McNabb’s career over? For that, I’d say yes.
