CSR Scouting Combine Preview: The Odds Makers Weigh In

We already know Vegas will bet on just about anything and that includes the NFL Scouting Combine. The following list comes courtesy of Bodog.com.

Let me emphasize we rarely allow posts related to gambling but I thought this list was enlightening as to who the betting gurus think will excel as individual events. Please know I am not encouraging anyone to take any of these bets.

I think its safe to say that wherever Cam Newton ends up a media circus will follow...probably of the likes Tim Tebow saw in his transition to Denver.

So here we go, starting with the marquee event, the 40 yard dash:

I especially love the ones pitting AJ Green against the Peterson...not that whoever wins any of these really matters in the grand scheme of things. I just find all this interesting that this is what they choose to try and get bets on.
