NFL Week 6 Odds and Ends

Here are some of the latest betting odds, courtesy of Bovada,  (,  Twitter:@BovadaLV).

I can’t tell you exactly what they all mean. Sometimes I just look at the where certain things rank in relation to others.

Like for the odds to win the 2013 Super Bowl:

                                                Last Week        Current

Houston Texans                         9/2                    4/1
San Francisco 49ers                  11/2                  5/1
New England Patriots                 7/1                    11/2
Atlanta Falcons                         7/1                    7/1
Baltimore Ravens                       17/2                  9/1
Chicago Bears                           15/1                  12/1
Green Bay Packers                    9/1                    15/1
New York Giants                        22/1                  18/1
Pittsburgh Steelers                    25/1                  20/1
Denver Broncos                         20/1                  25/1
Philadelphia Eagles                    20/1                  28/1
San Diego Chargers                   20/1                  28/1

So, there are 5 other AFC teams on the list and the Chargers are listed behind the Broncos in the listing. So Vegas thinks we are the 6th best team in the AFC. That sounds like a playoff spot.

Now check out this prop bet:

WEEK 6 SPECIALS – Who will be the 1st Head Coach fired during the 2012 NFL Season?     

Chan Gailey                  2/3
Pat Shurmur                  7/4
Rex Ryan                      7/1
Romeo Crennel              15/2
Mike Munchak               10/1
Andy Reid                     15/1     

Notice anyone’s name missing? And why would Norv get fired with the team sitting at 3-2? There are at least 6 seats hotter than Norv’s!

For the Chargers-Broncos game, oddsmakers currently have the Chargers listed as 1½-point favorites versus the Broncos, while the game’s total is sitting at 50.
