Buffalo Bills 2008 Odds - Bills Odds to Win 2009 Super Bowl

The Buffalo Bills 2008 odds and their odds to win the 2009 Super Bowl are pretty worthless if you listen to the pundits who believed the New England Patriots not only own the AFC East division but also own the NFL.  

What a difference a week can make.  Tom Brady is out for the season and the Bills clobbered the Seattle Seahawks.  The Bills were going to have their odds slashed to around 40 to 1 to win the 2009 Super Bowl after being listed at 7500 to 1 heading into the first week.  Should the Bills win the 2009 Super Bowl with this early bet, the payout would be $7500 for every $100 bet.  40 to 1 could still be a great value considering how well they played during Week 1.  How they perform against another favored team, the Jacksonville Jaguars, during Week 2, should speak volumes. 

The Bills were listed with even odds to win OVER 8 games during the 2008 regular season as well. (see betED.com for all 2008 NFL odds)

Their early odds of winning the AFC East were set at +600 for a $600 win with every $100 bet. The New England Patriots by comparison came in with -900 odds. Ouch!  Updated odds were likely to be slashed in half as well. 

Perfect might come close to describing how everyone else -- offense, defense and special teams -- played in helping Buffalo open the regular season with a dominating 34-10 win over the Seattle Seahawks to open the 2008 NFL season.

It's early, no doubt. But if the Bills' objective is to end an eight-year playoff drought this season, they got off to a very promising start in blowing out the four-time defending NFC West champions.

It was a victory that began and ended with Buffalo's special teams. Roscoe Parrish returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown to put the Bills up 14-0 in the second quarter. Then there was kicker Rian Lindell, who recovered a fumble on a kickoff that set up Trent Edwards' 30-yard touchdown pass to Robert Royal -- 20 seconds after Denney scored.

Brian Moorman became the first Bills punter to throw a touchdown pass, and first NFL punter to do so since Pittsburgh's Josh Miller on Dec. 28, 2003. He caught the Seahawks completely flat-footed in finding the 6-foot-7 Denney wide open in the left flats.
