Props and Profits – The Proper Way to Bet this Year’s Super Bowl

P18_shutterstock_14871_optIn last yearâ??s Super Bowl, it was Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos vs. Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. The point spread was Denver -2 points. No matter if you took the points with Seattle or laid them with Denver, the game was a blowout and was impossible to hold oneâ??s attention for the entire contest. But when the going gets the boring, the bored get betting. Who needs to rely on the traditional outcome-based wager when the wonder that is prop bets is ready for your coin and concentration.

Want to know more? Read on, my gambling friend.

Prop bets, like how many times Peyton Manning will say â??Omahaâ? (over 27.5 at -135, under 27.5 at -105) are great for entertainment value at any Super Bowl. Especially to keep your attention through the entire game. It starts with the coin toss and ends with â??what will the last score beâ? or â??will the last score be anything other than a touchdown.â? Itâ??s three and half hours of action-packed dramas, cheering and yelling, and it has the potential for much added value (profits) throughout the game.

Behind the Scenes: NASCAR Kasey Kahne’s Pit Crew

THINK OF AN NFL quarterback facing a two-minute drill with 90 yards to go. Now, drop that down to 14 seconds, and those 90 yards to 250 miles. No disrespect, Peyton, but that is pressure. In a sport like NASCAR, where winners are decided by tenths of a second, absolutely everything â?? a missed lug nut, a dropped gas can, a loose cap â?? counts and can cost your team a race. Thatâ??s what the pit crew of Kasey Kahneâ??s No. 5 Hendrick Motorsports team faces every week during the season, which began in Daytona in mid-February and runs through November.

Yet, for crew chief Kenny Francis and the crew of the Farmers Insurance Chevrolet, itâ??s less about pressure and more about performance. Each race week, the crew rehearses its moves like a dance company so each pit stop is an effortless replay of practice.
