There has not been a repeat winner since 1995-96 when Tampa won back-to-back titles. San Jose will try and defend their crown this year in Arena Football betting. Arena football odds show that many different teams have a legitimate chance to unseat San Jose in 2008. You can make a real claim that as many as 10 teams can compete in Arena Football betting for the title. The favorites though are clearly San Jose and Dallas. The SaberCats have won three titles in the last six years while Dallas looked unstoppable for most of the season in Arena Football odds a year ago. San Jose still has the expert quarterback Mark Grieb to go along with receivers James Roe and DBs Clevan Thomas and Omarr Smith.
Arena Football odds will have Dallas favored in nearly every game this season. They have gone 28-4 the last two seasons during the regular season and then flopped in the playoffs. QB Clint Dolezel returns to lead a powerful offense in Arena Football betting.
Georgia is another team to reckon with in Arena Football odds but they could slip with the losses of Chris Jackson and Derek Lee to free agency. They also lost their offensive coordinator. They should lose more than two games this year. Philadelphia picks up Jackson and could easily pass Georgia in terms of Arena Football odds.
Chicago has a great defense that can always impact Arena Football odds.
Los Angeles could surprise in Arena Football betting with QB Sonny Cumbie. Kansas City is another team that can impact Arena Football odds with their offense although they now will rely upon veteran QB John Fitzgerald.
Tampa Bay is always a threat in Arena Football odds. QB Brett Dietz looks like a good one. Orlando will be in the mix again with Stafford while teams like Colorado and Utah may slip.
Columbus is not going back to the ArenaBowl as they had a fluke season versus Arena Football odds. The Gladiators moved from Las Vegas to Cleveland and will be much improved. Arizona may also be improved with a new coach and quarterback. New Orleans loses WR Derrick Lewis to injury and may disappoint in Arena Football odds. Grand Rapids has a new coach while New York will look to keep Aaron Garcia healthy.
