Something a little different before the picks today.
Rumpole’s super bowl odds.
Colts- 3/2 to make it to the Super Bowl; 3-1 to win. Colts are the top team here until Chargers win a playoff game and show everyone they got game. Tony Dungy is all class and deserves to win one. Peyton is no Marino/Fouts. He will get a SB ring before he’s done.
Ravens. 3-1 to make it; 4-1 to win. Surprising Ravens get the second seat based on an experienced team, a great defense, and a QB who knows how to win.
Chargers and Bears: 3.5 -1 to make it; 5-1 to win. Both these teams have something to prove. Edge to Chargers with the best player in the game, but all it takes is one bad half by either QB to send these teams home in their first playoff game.
Dallas; New Orleans; Seattle: Best of the rest division winners. All have weaknesses that peg them as Playoff losers. 6-1 to make it; 8-1 to win.
Bengals 9-1 to make it; 9-1 to win it. If this team gets hot-watch out. Fundamentally a better team than those directly above them if they can get some pass defense and stop getting arrested.
Jax/Denver: 9-1 to make it; 11-1 to win. Good teams that can and will be beat.
Eagles/Jets, 20-1 to make it; 25-1 to win.
Steelers 50-1 to make it; 65-1 to win. Long odds against them getting in. If they do sneak in, then odds change dramatically, but still not the same team that won it all last year.
Bills. 75-1 to make it; 100- 1 to win.
Like the surging 49ers -3 at home over the Cardinals. One team has a great coach, one team has a lame duck coach.
Like under 47 in the Philly/Dallas game.
Like the over 36 in the Tennessee/ Buffalo game.
Fins are in a –win one/lose one cycle. This is the win cycle, and Fins are -1 at home on MNF. Jets need this one for the playoffs which makes Miami a dangerous pick. Fins would love to be the spoiler for the Jets. Take a deep breath and lay the digit.
Colts -9 at Texans. Dungy not going to rest his boys this year. It’s pedal to the metal until he gets to Miami.
