Don’t Bet on Early Draft Picks Meaning Early Success

The 2008 NFL Draft is in the books, and while rookies around the league will make an impact, it has not changed the landscape in the odds to win the Super Bowl, as the Pats remain the heavy favorite in that regard at 5/8. Some of the higher draft picks that should have the biggest impact have not changed odds on their teams, and have not made ticket holders make plans to have to spend extra cash on their teams once the NFL Playoff Schedule is out.

If you check the NFL Playoff Brackets from a year ago, you’ll see that those teams were mostly in the bottom of the draft, with only New England having a high pick, and that was from a deal with the Niners from a year ago. So when it comes to sports betting 101, don’t get too caught up with players like Long, McFadden and Ryan – the bottom line is they are still on teams that will likley be watching the playoffs from home in 2009.
