Cowboys 30-1 with British bookmakers!

Postby dmacblue » Mon Nov 10, 2008 8:42 pm

Seriously. much as i dislike them, they are one of the few teams that you KNOW can beat anyone on any given week.

No homefield advantage probably, but still....30-1 ???

I invested a pizza and a pack worth, if it comes off i'll be able to buy a return trip to London to escape the celebrating natives!

30-1 WOW

should have probably been 50-1, how are they going to win the division, let alone the whole thing with their defense?

They wont win the division; Giants have that (and probably homefield ) sewn up, but the Cowboys CAN sneak into the playoffs. I don't doubt that is a possibilty.

from there...............4 games ...anythings possible :-?

for 30-1, i'll take my chances

The Giants do have a very difficult schedule coming up.
Baltimore - Great defense, who knows if Eli can rally the troops up against this defense
@ Arizona - Maybe the best offense in the NFL right now
@ Washington - NFC East rivalry game.. also not the same team they played on Thursday night week one.
Philly - NFC East rivalry game.. last nights game could have gone either way with a call here or call there
@ Dallas - NFC East rivalry game.. not an easy game + Romo is back
Carolina - Should be a win if DelHomme throws another 4 INTs like he did against Oakland this weekend
@ Minnesota - Away on the last week of the season when Minnesota could need this win to maybe get a wild card

Yes, it sounds very bias against the Giants because I am a Jets fan ;-D . But they're schedule isn't a piece of cake.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Yeah, no team has ever won "the whole thing" with a defense ranked #11 overall or worse. (sarcasm)

The defense isn't as bad as you would think. They have been injured the last few weeks, and add to that the offense cannot sustain drives and is constantly turning the ball over. That would wear any team down. Once Romo is back and the Cowboys put together a few 8-10 minutes drives like last year, the Defense will come together.

What would you suggest the odds be for a team that is currently not in the playoffs if they started today.

30-1 sounds about right to me. I would say the Cowboys are a middle of the road team right now, so their odds should be about average, which they are.

Well I'm not betting on them being in the playoffs today, and your example is a touch distorted; you should be an a political analyst on Fox ;-D

Look, i dont think they WILL win the Superbowl, I am saying that I think they have every chance of getting into the playoffs. They are right on the bubble now, and they have Romo returning.

They are somehow longer odds than Philly; I just smell value that's all. ;-D

At 30-1 on Betfair I can 'sell' back at a lower price if as i believe they perform well.
