Vegas and Packers Disagree About Favre’s Impact


WEBWIRE

Jets’ odds improve immediately!

Las Vegas, Nevada (8/7/08) - The sports world has followed the saga of Brett Favre’s return to the NFL. Now, RJ Bell of Pregame.com reveals how his trade to the Jets has significantly affected New York’s Las Vegas odds this season.

Prior to the trade, the Jets were 40-1 to win the Super Bowl – meaning that $100 bet on the Jets would have won $4,000. After the trade, the odds moved immediately to 30-1, reducing the payoff by 25%.

Prior to the trade, the Jets were projected to win 7 games. After the trade, the projection on New York’s wins was increased by 1.5 games to 8.5. It’s interesting to not that if the Jets play to projection, they would still likely not make the playoffs.

Prior to the trade, the Jets Week 1 match-up at Miami had New York as a 2.5-point favorite. After the trade, the point spread moved to Jets minus 3.

”Las Vegas is saying that Brett Favre is still a difference maker. The Packers disagreed. When in doubt it’s smart to assume Vegas is right,” said RJ Bell of Pregame.com
