In One Of the Busiest Months, Who Is Favored To Win It All In Each Sport?

December 20th, 2010 · No Comments

December is one of the busiest months on the sports calendars with the NFL in the home stretch, college football winding down, the NHL going strong and the NBA moving into the serious months. So who’s favored to win it all in each sport? Have a look:

NFL: New England Patriots

The Super Bowl odds from BetUs have the New England Patriots favored to win the Lombardi Trophy…again. After all, they’ve only done three times this decade and had near miss in their fourth Super Bowl appearance.

This year, quarterback Tom Brady is playing like an MVP and head coach Bill Belichick is still one of the shrewdest in the NFL.

The Patriots should have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, so they should be in very good shape to at least make the Super Bowl. And from there, who has more experience bringing it home?

NCAA Football: Auburn Tigers

In college football, the field has been narrowed to two teams for the BCS National Championship: the Auburn Tigers and the Oregon Ducks.

The Tigers are a three-point favorite in the contest and considering the pedigree of the SEC conference, which they hail from, the public perception is that they are slightly the better team.

Either way, this game is going to be a classic between two very evenly-matched, exciting teams.

NBA: Los Angeles Lakers

The Los Angeles Lakers have won two straight NBA Championships and brought back virtually the exact same team. Is there any question that they’ll be the favorites until somebody knocks them off their pedestal?

The main contender that everyone is concerned about is the Miami Heat, who have combined Chris Bosh, Dwyane Wade and LeBron James onto one team. That superstar cast will be a best in the east but we’ll have to find out in the playoffs whether their coaching and team chemistry are up to snuff.

NHL: Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins are the current NHL favorite, even though the season has plenty more to go. But even though the season is young, it’s hard to argue with the fact that the Penguins have reeled off a 12-game winning streak in the middle of it.

They also have one of the best records in the NHL and the fact that they have won or played in a Stanley Cup in two of the last three years, it helps their case.
