Las Vegas Loves Raiders Odds of Winning Super Bowl 52

David Purdum of ESPN.com writes Wednesday that Las Vegas books are loving the Oakland Raiders odds of winning Super Bowl 52, which could have something to do with the Raiders soon relocating to Sin City.

Purdum notes:

Oakland's Super Bowl odds, which opened as high as 20-1, have moved to as short as 6-1. Just four weeks before the regular season, only the New England Patriots, the consensus favorite, have better odds than the Raiders. The Patriots are listed at 3-1.

It's all Raiders," said Chuck Esposito, sportsbook director for Station.

Raiders looking for better odds can still find them online where the team had the 5th or 6th longest odds depending on the book, typically somewhere in the neighborhood of 11/1.

Bookmakers aren't convinced the Raiders' move to Las Vegas is driving the current surge in betting interest, though.

"I don't think it has anything to do with the Las Vegas angle," Salmons said. "Last year, the Raiders played really high-scoring games, and they started covering spreads. That is just the dynamic of a public team."
