Vegas isn't so high on the Patriots' chances.
Thanks to Eric Wilbur for alerting me to this: New England is seventh in the pecking order, according to the wise guys who tend to know things we don't. Here's the rundown, for entertainment purposes only:
San Diego 5-2
New Orleans 5-2
Green Bay 12-1
New England 12-1
New York Jets 25-1
Insulting? Well, maybe not. The Patriots are right where they're seeded among AFC teams -- third. New Orleans, Dallas and Minnesota are all considered better bets for Super Sunday (as are the Chargers and Colts) but that may be a product of what seems to be a more balanced NFL field.
So you if you want toss down $100 to make $1,200 (or, say, $10,000 to make $120,000), and bet on the the home team, have at it. Or, that is, have at it as long as you live in Nevada or somewhere overseas.
