Favre factor on the lines

Las Palmas Sportsbook and Casino (conveniently online and licensed in Costa Rica) has the early odds on the NFL. The Packers are listed at 30-1 to win the Super Bowl. Where would they be if Brett Favre was the quarterback? The over/under for wins is eight. The Jets are 60-1, but the over/under is 8. I gotta believe there's a Favre factor in the line.

The Dallas Cowboys are listed at 7-1 with an over/under 10.5. The only team with shorter odds is the New England Patriots at 3-1, o/u 12. The longest shots of the season are the Miami Dolphins and the Atlanta Falcons at 200-1.
