NFL Playoffs odds and ends

I always enjoy looking at each team’s odds to win the Super Bowl. Below are the numbers supplied by Bovada (,; Twitter: @BovadaLV).
I think about who I would bet on IF — and I mean IF — I were unethical enough and dumb enough to do so. (Given my shaky history, both long-term and recently coming off an atrocious season picking NFL games, I have an uncanny knack for jinxing teams.)
Anyway, this year I’m going to give myself an IMAGINARY 200 units and see if I can make some Monopoly money.
I have to put a few units on the Patriots, whom I believe are going to win it all. I can’t take another favorite, so the Broncos are out, even though I see the AFC as pretty much a two-team race.
I don’t like the way the Texans finished, but I like their odds. I’m not sold on the Colts or Bengals making a big run. I’m going to give the Ravens a shot, praying Joe Flacco plays the role of good Flacco and the defense has enough to stop the big offenses.
I think the Packers are the best bang for the buck at 10/3 to win the NFC and 8/1 to win the Super Bowl. So I’m going to give them a shot in the NFC. So here goes:

20 units on Ravens at 11/1 to win AFC title
20 units on Texans at 7/1 to win AFC title
35 units on Patriots at 8/5 to win AFC title
20 units on Packers at 10/3 to win NFC title
20 units on Seahawks at 11/2 to win NFC title
35 units on Falcons at 5/2 to win NFC title
50 units on Patriots at 4/1 to win the Super Bowl
