2011 NFL Draft

In analyzing some of the 2011 NFL Draft winners, Gambling911.com also takes a look at the odds of winning a Super Bowl title for each team.  Of course, everybody could end up losing should there be a strike.

The NFC South keeps getting more competitive each year, and the 2011 NFL Draft helped solidify this fact further.  While each of these teams can legitimately compete for a title, New Orleans looks to have the best shot.

“No team in the division is as deep as the Saints for running backs,” John Clayton of ESPN.com noted. 

Reggie Bush, Chris Ivory, Pierre Thomas and they are getting running back Mark Ingram and Cameron Jordan.  New Orleans odds of winning the 2012 Super Bowl were at 15/1 at Sportsbook.comas of April 30.

The Panthers getting Cam Newton will make that team competitive again, but it is probably too soon to be talking championships.

The Falcons getting Julio Jones helps that team out a bit.

Tampa Bay with Josh Freeman and Atlanta with Matt Ryan make both teams title contenders.  The Falcons were listed with 15/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl while the Bucs were at 30/1.  But Tampa Bay has gotten even more competitive with their pick of Da'Quan Bowers in the second round.  As things stand now, those 30/1 odds have great value for the Bucs. 

Other winners for 2011:

The Jacksonville Jaguars get Blaine Gabbert as a quarterback.  Their odds of winning the 2012 Super Bowl were at 60/1.

The Cincinnati Bengals getting Andy Dalton and potentially getting rid of Carson Palmer.  The pieces are in place for a powerful new offense as well.  The Bengals odds of winning a Super Bowl were set at 60/1 for those of you wondering.

Thus far, the 2011 NFL Draft picks and activity have enabled both New Orleans and Tampa Bay to become bona fide contenders for a 2012 Super Bowl with the one caveat being they play in the toughest division in the league, the other being they might not play at all if there’s a strike.
