Gambling is silly. Gambling on the NFL is stupid. But the Super Bowl is a long day and I’m not drinking for another thirty-one days, so I’m going to have some money on it. For a terrific list of prop bets, check out this link to William Hill. (If you’re betting the Phoenix Open, I like Rickie Fowler to win, Webb Simpson for a top five and Pete Uihlein for a top ten.)
Alshon Receptions, Over/Under 4.5
My Bet: Over
What could possibly infuriate Bears fans more than Jeffery going off in the Super Bowl? That’s why he’s going to be everywhere Sunday, so my inbox can explode going into Monday morning.
Pink’s Anthem, Over/Under 2:00
My Bet: Over (-150)
You heard her sing lately? She could take more than two minutes to sing her f’n name.
Player to Score Last Touchdown
My Bet(s): Tom Brady (20/1) & Nick Foles (22/1)
The odds are good. And these are the only guys on the field guaranteed to touch the ball. Why not float a few bucks on Foles taking a zone read to the house or Brady, the league’s best QB sneak QB, taking one over the line to ice the game?
