Great news for the Seattle Seahawks, who opened as 6-1 favorites to win the 2015 Super Bowl, and bad news for Tiger Woods, who is favored not to win a major in 2014. This is Carrie Stroup reporting for Gambling911.com.
After the Seattle Seahawks completely dominated the Denver Broncos 43-8 to claim their first Super Bowl championship, they are already the 6-1 favorite to repeat next season. Denver 8-1, San Francisco 9-1, New England 16-1, and Green Bay / New Orleans are both at 21-1 round out the top five favorites.
With many questioning his legacy, the biggest question is whether or not Peyton Manning will play a down in the NFL 2014 Regular Season. 1/20 say “Yes” while 10/1 say “No.”
California Love: A few teams in California look like they could make a deep tournament run in March. San Diego State, who at one point was 300-1 to win the national title, is now 30-1 to win it all. UCLA, who was 125-1, is now 40-1 and California, who just knocked off top ranked Arizona has gone from 1000-1 to 50-1.
Will this be the year that Tiger Woods wins another major? Oddsmakers don’t think so. Here are the lines for Tiger’s major victories as of 2/3/14:
Zero Majors won: -225 favorite.
One Major won: +175.
Two Majors: 8/1.
Three Majors: 40/1
Tiger wins the Grand Slam: 100/1 long shot.
Ron The Greek 4/1 favorite on the fixed odds future to win next month’s Dubai World Cup (Meydan).
