Odds Makers Give Seahawks, Raiders Equal Chances Of Winning AFC Title

LAS VEGAS – Odds makers at multiple Nevada sports book casinos have assigned both the Oakland Raiders and the Seattle Seahawks equal 5000 to 1 odds of winning the AFC title for the 2014 season, despite the fact that the Raiders are the only one of the two franchises that technically play in the American Football Conference, according to casino sources.

Seattle Seahawks Oakland Raiders Same Odds Wining Super Bowl

 

“Well, they’re both long shots to win the AFC, sure,” said well-known sports gambling analyst Danny Sheridan. “But technically, it’s not impossible. Sometime between now and the end of the season, The NFL could suddenly decide to do some sort of crazy midseason realignment that would rotate dozens of teams to different divisions, resulting in the Seahawks ending up, like, in the AFC West or something. In which case, yes, the Seahawks could technically win the AFC this year.”

 

Asked if such a scenario didn’t seem extraordinarily unlikely, Sheridan replied, “Well, no more so than the Raiders winning the AFC. I mean, have you seen their roster? Matt Schaub? Seriously?”

 

The unlikely odds combination has inspired other casinos to offer similar wagering propositions.

 

“I just placed a three-way bet on a ‘You Never Know’ ticket at the MGM Grand,” said local gambler Ricky Kesler. “Now all I need is for the sun to rise in the west, pigs to start flying, or Jay Cutler to be named 2014 league MVP, and I win ten thousand bucks.”

    Peyton Manning needs one too

  4. Game managers hand off the ball to their RB. Wilson makes plays when the O-line breaks down. Without Wilson, Seattle’s not making the SB last year. Watch some game film, and then go play in traffic.

    This article makes no sense at all. There is absolutely no way in hell that the Raiders could even be contenders for the AFC title anytime soon.

    Trent Dilfer has one too. Did people call him elite? NO. Flacco got one too and is the Superbowl MVP. Is he elite? NO. And you will never be elite you piece of shit.

    Russell Wilson is a game manager and you know it. If any dumb ass says he is elite they are a dilusional fucking seahawk badwagon idiot. He isn’t great he’s average at best.

    It’s funny because the Seahawks are in the NFC and therefore have no chance to make it to the AFC Title Game!

    I actually think we have better odds of winning the AFC.

    HA HA HA! Damn right! We’re so good we could dominate the AFC without being in it. 43-8 ring a bell? If they had put us in the AFC in 2012 we would have 2 rings since we own the Whiners, Cheatriots, Donkeys, and Ratbirds but that’s okay we’re getting another one in February!
