LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — It should come as no surprise the odds of the Washington Redskins winning the Super Bowl aren’t very good.

Although last year’s seven-game winning streak and uncanny march to the playoffs prove anything is possible, the online casino Bovada isn’t betting on a repeat.

According to site’s pigskin prognosticators, Robert Griffin III and Co. are the team least favored to win the NFC East this season with odds of 8-1.

The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles, the latter of which hopes to snap a 10-game home skid this weekend against the Redskins, are division favorites at 13-10. Eli Manning and the New York Giants are sandwiched in the middle at 5-1.

Those odds look pretty good compared to Washington’s prospect of winning a conference title.

Bovada’s oddsmakers say the Redskins are 75-1 long shots to be the NFC representative at Super Bowl XLVIII. Only the St. Louis Rams (250-1), Atlanta Falcons (350-1), and Minnesota Vikings (350-1) rank lower.

At the other end of the spectrum, the Seattle Seahawks are 2-1 favorites.

And the odds of Mike Shanahan winning his third Super Bowl as a head coach?

They’ve dropped to 150-1 after last week’s second-half implosion in Minnesota. Entering that contest the odds of the Redskins hoisting the Lombardi Trophy for the first time since 1991 stood at 100-1.
