With the new NFL season only weeks away, much of the talk in past days has centered upon a possible Brett Favre comeback. Oddsmakers have chimed in on the possibility with the folks from Sportsbook.com saying "don't count on it"

"The odds of this happening are 4 to 1," points out Dave Stanley of Sportsbook.com

Oddsmakers at BetUS.com are a little bit more on the fence when it comes to a possible Brett Favre comeback.

"Brett Favre may well be the third greatest quarterback in the history of the NFL, and as such he will be missed dearly" stated BetUS.com spokesman Reed Richards. "Our expert oddsmakers felt it necessary to provide fans with a sense of closure, and some idea as to what he will be up to next."

But their experts have offered more of a "coin flip" than anything else, giving Favre starting a game for the Green Bay Packers during the 08/09 season 50/50 odds (listed as 10/11)

They are more generous in providing Favre MVP odds - A $1 bet pays out $14.

BetUS.com also lists odds on which team Favre is likely to play for next. Interestingly enough, Minnesota comes in as the 1/2 favorite over Green Bay.

Arizona Cards 1/100
Atlanta Falcons 1/50
Baltimore Ravens 1/40
