2012 Super Bowl Odds Released

Bodog has released its odds for the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis. The Detroit Lions aren't exactly the favorites or anything like that, but their odds of winning Super Bowl XLVI are a very respectable 40-1. This continues the trend of the Lions' odds of winning the big game getting better as the Jim Schwartz era goes on.

Shortly after he was hired back in January 2009, the Lions' odds for winning the Super Bowl were 150-1. That large number wasn't surprising considering the Lions were coming off of a 0-16 season. They were beyond a longshot to win the Super Bowl.

Last year, just as the 2010 offseason was getting started, the Lions' odds of winning the Super Bowl were 100-1. A few months later they improved to 80-1 thanks to additions like Kyle Vanden Bosch, Nate Burleson and Ndamukong Suh.

Fresh off of a four-game winning streak to close out the season and lots of hope and promise going forward, the Lions' odds of winning the big game are as good as they have been in years. Many other teams still have better odds than the Lions despite this improvement, but it's nice to see Detroit not at the bottom of the list with odds that go into the triple digits.
