Vegas Books Do Super Bowl Shuffle as Panthers Win Eight Straight

Recommended Posts

The Carolina Panthers have sports books juggling their Super Bowl odds after becoming the first National Football League team in 20 years to run off eight straight victories following a 1-3 start.

The Panthers two days before the start of the season had 66-1 odds of winning the Super Bowl, according to online sports book Bovada.lv, putting them 25th among the league’s 32 teams.

I put decent money down in June at 77-1. I hope we can pull it off, not just because I could then die happy, but because I could also afford to die in a Skyloft surrounded by top notch hookers and blow.

And for those that don't wanna click the link, the TL;DR version is Panthers were 66-1, and are now 10-1.

we should have never been that low to begin with.

I agree, which is why I made the bet. A rarely bet futures like that but 66-1 was hard to pass up on a team with so much potential.

Really it's not unprecedented?

Who the fug did it 20 years ago?

Is decent money over or under a grand?

~$200 or so. I gotta find the ticket to be sure. I won quite a bit on craps and went over to the sports book and put down the cash I had on hand which I think was around $200 or so.

1993 Houston Oilers. Started 1-4 then won eleven straight to take first in the AFC. Lost first playoff game to KC.

Yup

Also since I wrote that I found out the bears did the exact same thing we're doing now in 2005

Looks like the author of the article missed that one...here's hoping our streak doesn't end when theirs did.
