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?
That said, I may have a gambling problem so I will take the +155 odds on an incomplete pass.
I know we have been a bit slow here at OWS. What better time to stoke-up the ole OWS machine but for the Super Bowl! The first thing that the Super Bowl congeries up in my mind — gambling, of course. Lets start with the Super Bowl MVP odds. The favorites are obviously the quarterbacks – even with these two particularly unproven QBs. Colin Kaepernick is 8/5 while Joe Flacco is 11/4.
You need to pick an MVP candidate on the team you believe will win. Or you can hedge and bet on one Niner and one Raven. That might be the way to go with this type of prob bet.
That said, it’s fun to think a little outside the box with these.
Ray Lewis is the best way to play this. If Baltimore wins and he has more than 6 tackles, assuming Flacco has an average game, how can Ray-Ray not win it? Currently Ray Lewis gets you 7/1 on your investment.
On the San Francisco side, I’ve got two. First, Vernon Davis. He has been in full beast more thus far in the 2013 playoffs. Currently he is 18/1. Next, Michael Crabtree. He’s the type of player that can rise up for a big moment like Super Bowl 47. Crabtree is currently 14/1.
Here is the full list of Super Bowl MVP odds; Colin Kaepernick (SF) QB 8/5 Joe Flacco (BAL) QB 11/4 Frank Gore (SF) RB 7/1 Ray Lewis (BAL) LB 7/1 Ray Rice (BAL) RB 12/1 Michael Crabtree (SF) WR 14/1 Anquan Boldin (BAL) WR 16/1 Vernon Davis (SF) TE 18/1 Torrey Smith (BAL) WR 20/1 Ed Reed (BAL) FS 33/1 Patrick Willis (SF) LB 40/1 Aldon Smith (SF) LB 50/1 Dennis Pitta (BAL) TE 50/1 Randy Moss (SF) WR 50/1 Terrell Suggs (BAL) LB 50/1 Dashon Goldson (SF) FS 66/1 David Akers (SF) K 66/1 LaMichael James (SF) RB 66/1 NaVorro Bowman (SF) LB 66/1 Alex Smith (SF) QB 75/1 Bernard Pierce (BAL) RB 75/1 Bernard Pollard (BAL) S 75/1 Justin Tucker (BAL) K 75/1 Ted Ginn Jr. (SF) WR 75/1 Delanie Walker (SF) TE 100/1 Field 25/1.
It’s inevitable. At one time, the airing of a major sporting event on cable was unthinkable. That is no longer the case.
Currently, three of the four major American broadcast television networks pay $11.6 billion for the rights to the NFL. It breaks down to; CBS at $3.73B, NBC at $3.6B and Fox at $4.27B). This deal is up at the end of the year. In addition, cable television’s ESPN pays $8.8B through 2013.
As you can plainly see, ESPN pays more per year for its NFL rights package than the three broadcast networks. However ESPN is not part of the playoff telecasts or Super Bowl rotation. Undoubtedly, this is on ESPN’s radar.
