2008 NFL Team Prop Bets

Will the New York Giants make the playoffs During the 2008 NFL Season? Yes –115

It’s amazing how little respect the Giants are getting this preseason. This was the same team that won the Super Bowl last year, yet you can get almost even odds on them making the playoffs this year. It’ll take that bet. (They made the playoffs in 2006 too).

2008 Regular Season Wins - New England Patriots – UNDER 12.5 –105

I know that the Pats won all 16 last year, and I’m not trying to hate them for it. The reality of it is that winning 12.5 games in very hard in the NFL. You can get into the playoffs with about 9 wins and have a good seeding with 12. Don’t forget that teams with 12 wins usually rest players in the last week of the regular season. Lastly, they lost the Super Bowl last year. Recent history shows that teams who lose the Super Bowl often don’t play as well the following year…

BoDog has a few other interesting team props, but these are the only 2 that I’m betting. Check them out if you are looking for the odds on your own team as they have season props for the whole league as well as a lot of individual player props.

Good Luck
