    Just can't go against Brady.

    New England -4 (5Dimes)
    Over 48 (28-21)

    Waiting on Mack, RT, CoachCB, Path, Albert, LSU Pete, Knight, Razor, Stock, Deadman.
    These guys love CFB. Their opinion a plus for the Super Bowl.

    Ok Clover, here goes: First off, NFL football offers handicapping challenges that differ from college in so many ways especially when high-profile games (play-offs and the Super Bowl) are involved. Well over $4 billion plus will be wagered when all the illegal and office pools are calculated in along with Vegas and the off-shore houses are combined. This gives the sports books a lot of room to "operate. The opening line (NE -5) was probably right-on.

    The "proposition bets" are another matter (how do you handicap a coin toss)? So, I will make my usual "small" bet with a "local" who I've known for 35 years ($200), that's it. Obviously, I'm not risking the Farm (LOL). I have Philadelphia plus (5), got it early. No doubt, Brady and NE will have a lot of inertia going for them plus they've grown accustomed to winning Super Bowl rings......maybe too accustomed.

    Think the Pats finally cover a Superbowl. Can't trust Foles

    Mack, I've had the same local for over 20 years. Never a problem that wasn't resolved in 5 minutes and most were my mistakes.
    I've got 3 dollars each on side and total. $300 is about my maximum bet these days. The older I get the less I want to risk.

    Not sure if it's true, but heard the flu had been running through the Eagles the past few days. GL Bud!

    Eagles have a great D, NE been there done that. Not sure they can run the ball so it will be lots of dink and dunk passes from Brady.

    Foles just has to manage the game like a one Jay Barker did against the mighty U of M and let the D do the rest.

    Nice play Mack.
    Mack...spend the coins wisely my friend.

    I love really good defensive teams in big situations, but just couldn't go against the QB matchup.

    Loved how the Philly QB performed...grade A in my opinion. Didn't like how NE defense adjusted.

    Cost me $30 bucks and because of the circumstances, didn't mind one bit. Best team won.
