One of the greatest things about the NFL is the fact it's such a dynamic sporting franchise, meaning it literally changes from one day to the next, as the fortunes of the top teams plummet, and those of the lesser teams improve.

It's what makes NFL betting such a widespread and entertaining pastime, as week after week punters attempt to predict how their favorite teams will do. And although highly seasoned NFL betting fans obviously enjoy a better success rate than those with less experience, no one gets it right all of the time.

As proof of this, all you have to do is take a look at NFL betting lines offered by most land and online sportsbooks to see how quickly teams can fall in and out of favor In fact, popular online sports betting site Bodog recently compared the NFL odds from the pre-season, last week and this week to win Super Bowl XLVI:

It's interesting to note that up until now of all 32 NFL franchises, the New England Patriots are the most consistent team, with their 11/2 pre-season favorite odds of winning Super Bowl XLVI, the exact same as this week's odds.

Last year's Super Bowl champs, the Green Bay Packers, also started off with a very, very strong season. In fact, Bodog had them as the 7/1 favorites to win the Super Bowl in the pre-season, but as of this week, they're the overwhelming 2/1 favorites to win the Vince Lombardy trophy for the second straight year.

An NFL team that has crashed and burned this season are the Indianapolis Colts, who in the pre-season were laid at 20/1 odds to win the Super Bowl. However, after losing all 10 of their games so far this season, Bodog has them as 'Off The Board', meaning odds of 1,000,0000/1 of them winning the Super Bowl are probably too generous.

Another team that has failed to play up to betting expectation are the Philadelphia Eagles, who were laid as the 15/2 third favorites at Bodog in the pre-season to win the Super Bowl, but who this week were laid as 50/1 shots to snatch football's biggest honor.
