We are 6 days away from the biggest sports spectacle of the year and the Prop Bets are out! You can bet on everything your heart desires. I am saving my Game Pick for a blog later in the week, but if you want a pick now you can check out our NFL expert Action Jackson's blog delving deep into the X's and O's Here, and check out his pick. For now, lets talk about some props.
Over/Under: 59 and a half
This O/U is fools gold if I've ever seen one. Only 30 points each from 2 extremely high scoring offenses should be an immediate lock, on top of the fact that it is much more fun to root for an over, because high scoring games are much ore fun to watch. We unfortunately have to get back to reality with this game, and realize that the Super Bowl is different from all the other games. Teams come out tight and try to make the perfect play instead of the smart play. It takes both teams longer to get in the flow of the game and because of this the game tends to be less high scoring.
This award seems like it should be a two horse race and go to the winning teams QB: Either Tom Brady or Matt Ryan, but interestingly enough 2 out of the 3 MVP's have been non QB's (with the 1 QB being Tom Brady). I think the award returns to form this year with the winning teams QB getting the award, as I expect this game to be a passing heavy one.
Tails never fails
First TD scored:
This is a really interesting one to me because you can make a ton of $ on a low risk bet. I think it is more likely the Pats score first, and more likely to me is a small receiver getting in on some across the middle pass. For the way I think the game will go, it's between Edelmen and Hogan. Just because he's been a little hotter recently I'm going with...
More Passing Yards: Brady v. Ryan
This is an interesting one to me, because while I think Brady will have a better showing, Ryan should have more yards. His receiving core is unreal and can get huge gashes against the pats defense. I also think he will make more mistakes leading to turnovers but for this prop....
Most receiving Yards
If it comes from the falcons there is one answer and only 1 answer: Julio Jones. My best bet for the pats would be edeleman, but luckily I think the Falcons will have more passing yards.
Will the Atlanta Falcons have a Rushing TD in the Game?
Beast backfield, easy yes
Will a Special Teams or Defensive TD be scored?
