I'm not a gambling man, but I would have loved to put money on the Rams or Ravens the year they had won those Super Bowls.

The opening odds on the Dolphins winning Super Bowl XLV at 50:1 seem about right.
So does Miami’s standing among AFC teams on the odds chart, which is tied for 10th with Denver and Jacksonville.
The Dolphins don’t figure to be better than 3-3 in the AFC East, and their outside-the-division plate is stuffed with AFC North (at Baltimore and Cincinnati, home vs. Cleveland and Pittsburgh) and NFC North (at Green Bay and Minnesota, home vs. Chicago and Detroit). That looks like nothing better than 4-4, which leaves the other two games - at Oakland, home vs. Tennessee - to determine Miami’s fate in regard to a .500 record.
Yeah, 50:1 seems about right.
