Intertops First Sportsbook to Post NFL Lines — New England Patriots Early Favorites to Win Super Bowl XLII
June 30, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Sports NewsJune 30, 2007 (St. John’s, Antigua) – Gridiron fans don't have to wait until September to back their favorite NFL teams. Intertops.com – the company that took the first online wager ever – is the first online sportsbook to post betting offers for the 2007 NFL Regular Season. Week One lines and dozens of props, including Divisional Winners and who will win Super Bowl XLII, are already online at www.intertops.com.
The New England Patriots are the early favorites to win Super Bowl XLII in Arizona next February. Intertops.com odds favor the Pats to face the Chicago Bears (+1800), New Orleans Saints (+2200), Dallas Cowboys (+2500) or Philadelphia Eagles (+2500).
The Pats are the favorite, at +400, to win Super Bowl XLII with the Indianapolis Colts at +650 and the San Diego Chargers at +750. (All odds quoted are those posted at Intertops.com Sportsbook as of June 28, 2007.)
“We’ve had our eye on the Patriots during the off-season,” said Intertops.com manager Michael Weiss. “They were already strong and they’ve done more to improve the team than any other franchise. We think they’ll go all the way this season!”
The Patriots, who open their training camp at Gillette Stadium July 27th, have signed several strong players recently, including athletic Baltimore linebacker Adalius Thomas. Some question the decision to trade for former Raider bad boy Randy Moss but Pats fans have Bill Belichick to keep him in line. Tom Brady must be pleased the team has also signed free agents Donte' Stallworth (Philadelphia) and Kelley Washington (Cincinnati).
In addition to Super Bowl XLII props, Intertops.com Sportsbook has also posted odds for September NFL games, including the season opener between Indianapolis and New Orleans. The long-established gambling site offers a wide variety of NFL props including Spread Winner, Over/Under Totals and Straight Up bet on the outcome of the game. The popular casino, poker and sportsbetting site also takes First Half and Second Half Side, Spread Winner and Totals wagers.
