Stu didn’t take last year’s Superbowl loss well. Granted, it did probably cost him 2 trillion units.
There’s one day of the year I play props, Superbowl Sunday. It’s the last day of football for months so you might as well get down as much action as you can. Plus it’s also the only game of the year that has such a wide array of ridiculous props available. All of the props below are real but not necessarily from the same book. To the prop plays!
Coin Toss: Tails -105
I only ever choose tails so why change now? I also only throw rock in rocks/paper/scissors. It’s not about winning in that case it’s about intimidation.
Will Mike Carey be wrong about a challenge? Yes +145
I’m not sure that tweet is actually accurate but at the same time it’s definitely accurate. And it’s + money?? No brainer.
How many times with Archie Manning be shown on TV? Over 1.5 (even)
Does anybody get more credit for doing less than Archie Manning? Seriously. He sucked in the NFL. So he has great sperm, big whoop. Now he’s just a media whore and the TV people love him. They’ll show him all game.
National Anthem: Over 2 minutes and 20 seconds +135
Lady Gaga’s a performer. She’s not up there to just sing the anthem, she’s up there to put on a show. Plus, we haven’t seen her in awhile now, she’s going big here. I also can’t resist getting + money on this.
What will be higher: Montreal Canadiens goals on Sunday or Greg Olsen receptions: Olsen -200
We’re all in agreement that Olsen’s going to catch at least one pass right? Well then there’s our win. The Canadiens are DONE. DEAD. OVER. I love that I’m going to get to bet against the Canadiens in the Superbowl. Don’t worry about laying -200 here, it’s a lock.
Will there be an earthquake during the game? Yes +1500
Now I know this seems absurd on the surface, but the boys over at Sports Insights did their research on this one:
According to the frighteningly up-to-the-minute Earthquake Track website, San Francisco has played host to no less than 583 earthquakes in the last year – 10 alone within the past 7 days! Taking a sudden trip to CNN.com I see that California has not yet slide into the ocean so I assume this frequency is commonplace if not expected by the natives. In fact I’d wager it’d be more upsetting if a day passed without the Earth heaving itself up for a spell.
I’ll roll the die on an earthquake at +1500.
Either team wins the game by exactly 3 points: YES +432
I’m really surprised you can get +432 on this. I know everyone thinks Carolina is gonna roll here but I think this is a 3 point game and have no idea which side will be the winner.
That is all for props!
For regular plays I have the Broncos +5.5 and a Broncos/Under teaser. Now lets all pray for a 20-17 Panthers win.
