Tebow most influential athlete, but doesn't mean much to oddsmakers

Tim Tebow has been announced as the most influential athlete in sports in 2013, according to a Forbes Magazine survey.

Unfortunately, and surprisingly, "the most influential athlete" has had little-to-no impact on lines and odds in his NFL career.

When the New York Jets sacrificed a fourth-round draft pick to the Broncos for the services of Tebow prior to the 2012 NFL season, the transaction had no influence on the Jets' Super Bowl odds.

“The Jets already draw, so until we can understand what his role is going to be, we won’t move anything,” Jay Rood, sportsbook director at the MGM Mirage, told Covers when the trade went down last year. “They’re adding another possibly-talented player, who may not even see the field.”

As it turned out, Rood was right. The quarterback played sparingly and was 6-of-8 for 39 yards passing in 12 games for the Jets last season.

Tebow was released by the Jets a week ago. CarbonSports.ag has posted props odds on Tebow’s next stop, setting “Signing with an AFC team” and “Signing with an NFC team” as -110 co-favorites.

Check out the prices on Tebow’s football future:

Sign with an AFC team -110
Sign with an NFC team -110
Play in the CFL +400
Play in the Arena Football League +1,000
Does not play another down of pro football +400

i must add that it was not what he was saying but how he worded it so childlike and innocent like .. giving all praises from say a 300 pound lineman would come across differently .. also people are simply jealous creatures is why many are opposed .. ever been around someone that knocks everyone ? is quite a case study no doubt .. finding out just why people hate so much .(and if they really mean what they are saying , does it come from their heart or are they just repeating somthing they heard someone else say). i have never ever ever been a hater .. i just wanted to clean up a comment i had made in the past that could have been misinterpreted .. in reality , ashes to ashes dust to dust .. YOU BETTER GET RIGHT ! :)
