You can find betting odds on just about everything in pro football---even the odds that your favorite candidate for the Eagles HC position will actually get the job. While I was making a small wager that the Baltimore Ravens would cover their 9.5 point underdog spread in Denver this coming Saturday at "NFL Playoff Betting Trends" directed to http://www.sportsbetting.ag/nfl-betting , I discovered that Lovie Smith is a 20-1 shot to be our next head coach. Hmmmm.... The rest of the odds are interesting, too--- Jay Gruden 50-1, Gus Bradley 40-1, Bruce Arians 90-1, Jon Gruden 100-1, Bill Cowher 60-1, Mike McCoy 30-1, Mike Nolan 40-1, Keith Armstrong 100-1, and Marty Mornhinweg 200-1. I never wager more than $50 at a time, so when I bet on any sporting event it is mostly for pure amusement. But for you Coach Marty fans out there, you could conceivably hit a mini-lottery if your man gets the job! I think I'll put a small wager on Lovie.      ...
