Super Bowl Gambling: Joe Flacco

Who is ready for more Super Bowl 47 odds? Earlier we talked Super Bowl MVP odds. Now I want to concentrate on Joe Flacco specific prop bets. There are a ton of different bets that have to do with touchdowns, of course. Here are some of my favorites.

First, I want to talk about Joe Flacco.

Total TD Passes – Joe Flacco (BAL)

1 Touchdown (+175)

2 Touchdowns (+250)

3 Touchdowns (+450)

Placing a smaller wager on both 1 TD and 2 TDS may be a sound way to play this one.

Next up; lets look at yardage.

Longest Completion – Joe Flacco (BAL)

Over(-125)/under(-105) – 40.5 yards

The Ravens have been known to throw the deep ball. In fact, they throw it a lot. I love the over here. Sticking with this idea, shall we talk overall yardage output?

Total Passing Yards – Joe Flacco (BAL) 

Over(-135)/under(+105) – 250.5 yards

Now, as I said the Ravens will throw and throw again. However, the Niners are a stout defense. I’d take the odds here and go under at +105.

You might have a gambling problem if you bet on this next one.

Joe Flacco (BAL) First pass of the game will be? 

Complete (-175)

Incomplete (+155)

Interception (+1200)

That said, I may have a gambling problem so I will take the +155 odds on an incomplete pass.

From The Bleachers 2.10.12

As the end of the week approaches, a pair of OWS contributors banter about some of the important (and not so important) news items of the week.

 
Perk’s got a point. It would really have surprised me to see Jordan tweeting. Especially in 1994, 2 years before I owned a computer. I bet he’d be tweeting a lot about NAFTA and Alice in Chains. Which brings me to LeBron’s twitter account. As a respected journalist, which I am not, I looked into some of his recent tweets to get a feel for what he’s tweeting about. I don’t follow him (or many athletes, for that matter), and I’m glad I don’t because his account is painfully boring. I’m not interested in reading him say “yes sir!! Nice!!” to Justin Bieber or shill for one of his million endorsers. You can tell how PR’ed out his account is, too, because you don’t see any of those weird tweets you see from people like once every 10-15 tweets. It’s usually late at night and it comes when the person’s sleep deprived and in a weird mood. Tweeting, “You know what, I can kinda see why people are into Maroon 5″ seemed like a good idea until you’re re-reading it the next morning on the way to work.
 
 

I’ve been thinking about this all week. That’s a pretty hot take you got there. Although you gawked at it a bit, I did kinda of buy into what Kendrick was saying. It’s like what you started to get in to — James has his hands in a million different things. Sure athletes have always done endorsements, etc. However, nowadays that often seems like a full-time job in itself. It must be hard to say no to the money, attention, or whatever. That said, what sounds better $500M… or $450M and a championship ring?
 

Monday Morning Hangover!

Every Monday of the NFL season we post a picture or video that sums up why we love NFL Sundays. It’s the Monday Morning Hangover! View previous week’s hangovers here.

Cundiff is an advantage for the Ravens, right? Still on that? What did I write on Friday?! Well, I’ll show you.

Edge, Baltimore? I beg to differ.

Football Outsiders does a DVOA special teams raking. The Ravens were 30th this season. The Patriots were 5th. Even if you read the actual special teams breakdown paragraphs above, I’m still not sure how the writer gives the edge to the Ravens.

Is special teams just kickers now?

Fine, I’ll play that game. If you look at the Football Outsiders ranking, which takes into account more than just place kicking, but break that out and you will see the kicking game for Baltimore is one of the worst in the league.

Or how about this…

Lets just look at percentages. Cundiff was 28th in the league in FG percentage this past season. He was literally a percentage point and a half away from being dead last.
