The Brownies are 60/1 to win the Stupid Bowl according to this article:

http://sports.yahoo.com/news/updated-nf ... --nfl.html

I will take all your Browns action at 61:1 if anyone is interested.
Bottom 4th: Cleveland
- J. Kipnis grounded out to shortstop
- A. Cabrera doubled to deep left
- N. Swisher doubled to center, A. Cabrera scored
- J. Giambi doubled to deep right center, N. Swisher to third, N. Swisher out at home
- J. Giambi caught stealing, catcher to third

1 run, 3 hits, 0 errors

Sounds about right. Browns would be a much stronger team if Lombardi had signed a quality TE in free agency and used the 4th and 5th round picks to get DBs Philip Thomas from Fresno State and Baccari Rambo from Georgia, like the Redskins did. Would have added quality depth and set the Browns secondary for a couple of years. Washington expects at least one of them to start.

Sounds about right?

Sounds like the per usual conservative Vegas line for long shot squads.

I assure you, the true line is waaaay longer than 60-1.

Heh...

It all changed when the Rams won with Warner

IIRC they were 300-1 at one time

That's the one that did it. And, not only long odds, but from a team that not long before was in LA. Vegas took a lot of So Cal action on that longshot.

I feel the need to start referencing "Da Bears" skits, specifically one of the original ones when Kevin Nealon played an oddsmaker.

"Bears, 107, Dallas, negative seven. Ditka will find a way!"

Or, one of my favorites, "Da Bears vs. Tiny Ditka"
