Super Bowl 52 Props and Picks
First, the Props:
Time to sing Nation Anthem Under 2 minutes
This is 6-6 in the last 12 Super Bowls…..Piunk is sick so she may try to hurry through this one
Tom Brady Over Completions 26 (-115)
He’s only missed this once the last 4 years – last week, where Jacksonville possessed the ball 65% of the game. He still went 25/37 so it’s not like he wasn’t close. Also as Cousin Sal said, “The Patriots running game is essentially pick plays and screens to small white guys”.
Over Total Turnovers +2.5 (+145)
Ajayi has lost a fumble this playoff…so has Blount as well as in last year’s Super Bowl. Foles is due for an INT, and Brady has thrown an INT in the last 3 Super Bowls. Add the Philly Special Team returners being in their 1st Super Bowl……there could be an abundance of turnovers in this one.
Burkhead Anytime TD score +175
If he plays, he’s been the Pats goalline guy for score TDs. I wish I could get a Branden Bolden line.
Patriots score on first drive of game – Yes (EVEN)
They haven’t done it in the last 9 Super Bowls they were in. It’s due!
Foles MVP +300, Brady MVP -110
Take the QBs, and hedge.
Amendola Over Receptions 4.5 (-115), Anytime TD scorer (+150), MVP +4400
Danny “Playoff” Amedola has a TD in the last 4 Patriots’ playoff games…he’s replaced Edleman in the “slot white guy role” and really no one can guard that once Tom/McDaniels/Danny figures it out.
Philly First team to call a TO -115
Doug Peterson was the second worst this year in wasting TOs (after Atlanta’s Dan Quinn…which they tried theri best to one up each other in setting TOs on fire in a playoff game)….money in the bank here and a 2nd Half TO may sneaky cost him the game.
Nick Foles Most Running Yards than Tom Brady -115
Seems like stealing….the Eagles actually call RPOs where Foles has the option to run!
Patriots Score on the first drive (EVEN)
They haven’t done so in the last 6 Super Bowls…they are due!
Patriots first play is a pass (-115)
The Pats have opened their games with a pass in every Belichick Super Bowl
Justin Timberlake covers a Prince Song during Halftime show (-170)
They are in Minny..he has to, right? This now is in the -300s….and the bet has shifted from “if” to “what song” (my guess is “Let’s Go Crazy”).
And the pick:
I think Belichick know’s Schwartz’s defense enough and they handle Nick Foles’ RPO game on 2 weeks rest to take care of business. Pats 30, Eagles 20.
