2010 Super Bowl Betting Odds for the St. Louis Rams

NFL News - August 19th, 2009 - Written by Ryan Smith

The St. Louis Rams did not have a very good season in 2008, finishing the year with a final record of 2-14. The Rams went through two head coaches last year, and hired a third head coach this season to take over the franchise in St. Louis. This years new head coach is Steve Spagnuolo, former defensive coordinator of the New York Giants. Spagnuolo will try his hardest to add a defensive mindset to the Rams in 2009. The Rams are not known for their physical defense, but that is sure to change with Spagnuolo as head coach. The Rams play in the NFC West, one of the weakest divisions in all of football, and they should be able to win more than two games this season.

Can the Rams win the Super bowl in 2010? The sportsbooks don't think so, in fact online sportsbooks such as BetED, have released odds on all 32 NFL football teams to win the Super Bowl. The Rams come into the 2009 NFL season with 150:1 odds to win the Superbowl, the worst odds in all of the NFC West division. The Rams are an offensive team, and the team strives on the ability to out score their opponents in order to win football games. Quarterback Marc Bulger was once a top 5 quarterback in the NFL, but last season he only passed for 11 touch downs, totaled 13 interceptions, and was sacked an amazing 38 times. Running back Steven Jackson did not have the best season ever last year either, but yet he managed to record good stats. Jackson finished the 2008 season with over 1,000 yards rushing, and entered the end zone 7 separate times. The Rams will only go as far as Steven Jackson can take them, and last year he proved he can move the football, even on a bad team.

Though the Rams are a 150:1 favorite to win the Super Bowl, which is highly unlikely to happen, they do have a good chance to win more than two games this season. Besides the other three NFC west teams, the Rams will only have to play three elite teams in 2009, and only one of those games will be on the road. The first is at home against the Colts in week 7, the second is home against the Saints in week 10, and the Third is on the road against the Titans in week 14. If the Rams can manage to win the majority of their home games, who knows, maybe they can sneak into the playoffs as the NFC West champions. The Cardinals did it last year with a record of 9-7, and made it all the way to the Super Bowl, but they did not win. The Rams have iIncorporated young athletes, such as wide receiver Donnie Avery, into the offense more, but they will have to discover ways to be more explosive. The St. Louis football team will improve this year, however it will take longer than just one season of rebuilding to get the Rams into the Super Bowl in 2010.
