Basically, the Sports Economist was saying that the Vegas odds changed when Favre “announced” his retirement on August 3rd.
On August 2nd, odds showed the Vikings with a 38% (+130) chance of winning the NFC North, with that number dropping to 32%(+175) by the morning of August 4th.
With those reports being largely ignored, the Favre numbers in Vegas were at:
Vikings at +150 as of August 16th.
Now that reports have Favre coming home, we are at:
Minnesota Not Being Shown
It would appear that Vegas doesn’t wanna show the odds of a Minnesota NFC North Championship or ANY NFC North chance at all until Favre announces Wednesday!
