Vegas NFL Power Rankings (Luv Skins)
So you know how I always publish these Las Vegas Oddsmakers College Football rankings? Which are produced by Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the group that advises Nevada sports book and is basically a corporate sponsor of the Bog by this point?
Well, LVSC also produces NFL power rankings, which I suppose I might as well start including on a weekly basis. As always, I would say these are more accurate than the power rankings produced by Peter King, Mark Maske, Les Carpenter, Pete Prisco, Peter Schrager, and all the rest, because LVSC's financial future rests on these being ideally accurate measures of the strength of NFL teams. And, to me, the shocker is where the Skins are ranked. Rankings after the jump.
(I can also start publishing all the numerical indexes that go into these if you really want.)
Bear in mind that record and head-to-head and past results are all insignificant; or rather, not decisive. What this comes down to is, if the teams played each other on neutral fields right at this very second, which team would be favored. And really, that's all that's important in this world.
Three of the top 13 are NFC Easterners.
1. NEW ENGLAND
3. SAN DIEGO
11. NEW ORLEANS
16. GREEN BAY
18. SAN FRANCISCO
19. NEW YORK JETS
22. SAINT LOUIS
24. TAMPA BAY
28. NEW YORK GIANTS
29. KANSAS CITY
