Brett Favre Vikings

 

Will he or won’t he retire and, if he does, what impact will Brett Favre not playing in Minnesota this coming season have on the Vikings?

Oddsmakers online, including the folks at Bookmaker.com who typically aren’t afraid to take chances, removed odds on the NFC North while waiting for an answer from Favre.

In Vegas, oddsmakers are studying ESPN interviews with Favre to detect any possible clues he might have to offer about his future with the Vikings (or without them).

"We don't have a definitive answer," said director of the MGM/Mirage Race and Sports book Jay Rood. "So we'll be guarding against inside information."

Rood moved the Vikings odds of winning the 2011 Super Bowl from 6-1 to 10-1 in just a matter of days this week after reports surfaced that Favre was texting teammates that he would be retiring. The Vikings' over/under win total went from 10 to off the board.

Bookmaker.com had the Vikings with +950 oddsof winning the 2011 Super Bowl.
