Eagles Odds and Ends and Odds


A guy from Bodog sent me these odds on different Eagles stuff.

For amusement purposes only, etc.

Odds to win the Super Bowl, 25-1.

Odds to win the NFC Championship, 10-1.

Odds to win the NFC East, 7-2.

Over/under on Donovan McNabb starts, 14.

Over/under on Brian Westbrook rushing yards, 1,230.

Over/under on DeSean Jackson receiving yards, 490.

Over/under on Trent Cole sacks, 11.5.

Over/under on Asante Samuel interceptions,  4.5.

Make of them what you will. Now, I'm not a big odds guy, but the over/under on wins is written like this: over 8.5 wins is -180, under 8.5 wins is +150. Which means, I believe, that the over is believed to be more likely to happen than the under.

Still, is that the right conversation point?

I mean, they're better than 8.5 wins, right?

About this blog
Rich Hofmann arrived at the Daily News in 1980 for a job whose status was officially designated as "full-time, temporary." A senior at Penn at the time, he was hired to fill in on the copy desk during a staff illness. The notion of him covering the Eagles or being a columnist did not exist in anyone's imagination. It was supposed to be six weeks and out, but he never left. It is only one of the reasons why so many people have concerns about him as a potential house guest. Rich has blogged the postseasons of the Flyers and Eagles. E-mail Rich at Reach Rich at
