Vegas’s view of the Oakland Raiders

Vegas is not a fan of the Silver and Black. The Oakland Raiders are long shots to win the AFC West and even longer shots to win Super Bowl XLIII. What follows are some odds from bodog.com that relate to the Oakland Raiders chances for success in 2009.

Winning Super Bowl XLIII

Oakland Raiders 90/1

What this means is that if one were to place a $100 bet on the Raiders to win the Super Bowl, if they pull off the upset, the payout would be $9,000. To give a sense of perspective on how long those odds are, only the St Louis Rams and Detroit Lions are longer shots at 100/1.

AFC Championship

Oakland Raiders 45/1

The Raiders have the longest odds to win the LaMar Hunt trophy out out all of the teams in the AFC. The Cleveland Browns are next longest at 40/1.

AFC West crown:

Oakland Raiders 8/1

The Raiders and the Denver Broncos share the longest odds to win the AFC West crown at 8/1. The Chiefs fare only slightly better at 15/2. The Chargers are the overwhelming favorite at 1/4. (The Chargers are so favored that a $100 bet would only have a profit of $25.)

Raiders wins

The over under for the Oakland Raiders in terms of wins is 5.5. This means that the bet is whether the Raiders will win more or less than that number. Vegas doesn’t expect the Raiders to reach that number.
