My dad still talks about someone he knew that jaked Superb Owl XIII. (Do other people call a middle a Jake?)
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

For the SB I had a $100*** on the 49ers (-3) @ +150, for the AFC/NFC game I had $300 on NFC (-3) @ +150, and for the first score a TD for both games combined I had $400 @ +156^^^.

***: I plan to bet about $300 in total on the 49ers, but I will wait and see what the player injuries are closer to game day, before I commit myself to a bigger bet.

^^^: $1.60 each leg (or about -167 per leg).

Is this the best thread to talk about the prop bets... or should we start another one?



I think we should start another one. If none else does, I'll try to get some prop sheets and post pictures of them later today.

I always lean to the under in the Super bowl because the public enjoys betting the over and very few of them will bet the under.



Podcast last night said the over is being taken about 20:1 vs the under this year. Shootout will skin the bookies.

I don't understand this. Why didn't they start line at around 57 to get equivalent money on both sides?

If they started at 57, maybe the action would be lopsided for the under. The books need to attract bettors, but it also helps when the loser's action is bigger than the winner's. 7 or 8 touchdowns in a game with two of the top 10 defenses is a tall order.

Somebody has to throw out the first number and let the world bet into it. I think the number they put out was a pretty good one and don't fault them for it. Still don't get why it moved so much.

This is tempting, to the point of too good to be true. I'm tempted, and I never bet happily. There are only a few times I feel good about sports betting NFL and usually am tempted on wins to impulse bet the next week and I fail. I'm a dog better the majority of the time. I'm sure the odds are good I'll be a forum lemming on the under, with no other usual inclinations to ever bet on the big game.
