Four teams' Super Bowl odds drop
LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - For one reason or another, a handful of teams' 2015 Super Bowl odds have dropped over the past week.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Eagles are now 22/1 to win the 2015 Super Bowl while the Ravens are 40/1 and the Cowboys and Lions are both 50/1, respectively. All four of those numbers represent a drop in terms of odds over the past week.
The Eagles were listed with 20/1 odds following the release of receiver DeSean Jackson but now they're 22/1 to win the Super Bowl at 12/1 to win the NFC title, down from 11/1 a week ago.
The Ravens, meanwhile, were 33/1 to win the Super Bowl a week ago but their odds have dropped significantly from 40/1 to win the NFL title, and from 16/1 to 18/1 to win the AFC title.
The Cowboys and Lions both saw the same drop in both Super Bowl odds and NFC title odds. Both teams were sitting at 40/1 to win the 2015 NFL title last week but are now 50/1, while their NFC title odds have gone from 20/1 down to 22/1.
Why the sudden change in odds? The Eagles' drop could have to do with the Jackson release, although the Ravens, Cowboys and Lions haven't made any significant moves to force a drop in their Super Bowl chances. The Ray Rice situation continues to be a black cloud in Baltimore but its not as if the team is parting ways with the running back.
