Wanna bet?

As I scanned the headlines around the Lions nation, I came across an article on the SideLion Report.  Apparently, the folks in the D aren't the only ones that like the Lion's chances.  For any novice bettors, the initial lines (odds) are set for a wager, and they are adjusted afterwards according to how much money is placed for or against the wager.  The more money comes in for, the lower the line goes.  If more comes in against, the line goes up.

Anyway, after opening at 75-1 (immediately following last year's SB), and 35-1 by Bodog.com last week, so much money has come in on the Lions, the MGM Mirage betting line is now 22-1 (to win the 2012 Super Bowl).  It's not just hopes and dreams anymore; people are seeing the Lions as a "value pick" to perform much better than the line.  The knowledge of crowds would seem to indicate that either we're a team on the up-and-up, better than our last 3 years (8-32) would indicate, or there is a LOT of cornbread being distributed.
