Doesn't matter if we're talking about the price of bedroom sets or bedroom slippers, competition is good for the consumer. Same goes for sports betting.
There are two sportsbooks operating in Atlantic City, both offering similar NFL wagering futures options. With two days until the Eagles start camp, the Ocean Resort's odds are more favorable to Birds' backers.
The Borgata, whose sportsbook is run by MGM, has the Eagles at 7-1 to win the Super Bowl and 3-1 to win the NFC Championship as of Tuesday afternoon.
Ocean Resort's operators, William Hill-US, had the Eagles at 8-1 to win the Super Bowl and 9-2 to win their conference.
"If they start off 0-4," said Nick Bogdanovich, director of trading for William Hill, "people will be jumping off quicker than the Titanic."
Borgata has four teams equally favored to win the Super Bowl at 7-1. The only team the William Hill people favor better than the Eagles is the Patriots at 7-1.
Both have the Eagles favored to win the NFC East, but the juice at Ocean Resort is slightly lower (-160 to -180).

Each sportsbook has set the Eagles' victory total for the regular season at 10.5 wins. The Borgata (-110) is offering the better juice for those who might play the under. Over is -120. Under at Ocean Resort is -120, while over is even money.
