    I remember it wasn't long ago when we were 'that 100-1 team'.

    What if you bet $100 on every team?

    Well, at best you could win $20,000 if two of the worst teams went to the super bowl with 100-1 odds. That's about 6 times your total bet of $3200 and that is quite a longshot.

    This is almost as ridiculous as preseason top 25 lists made for college football the day after the championship game is played. So much can change between now and then that there is really no point in trying to calculate it at this point.

    Great time to find value future wagers, though. The Saints were 20-1 to win the Super Bowl last February. At 35-1, the Texans are a good value play imo.

    True, but how many people actually play on these numbers?

    I'm sure there are quite a few bettors placing these wagers in the Vegas sports books.

    So If I bet 100 bucks and texans go to super bowl I could basically get my ticket to superbowl paid for pretty cool!
