Superbowl thoughts

I have to admit, I am not really thrilled with this superbowl. I don’t know why I feel this way. The Colts and Saints are number one seeds and good teams. New Orleans is a feel good underdog and it is tough not to like Manning. I guess I wanted to see Favre, but the Saints are still a good team. I will still watch it but I am just not totally into it right now. So, need to make a couple of bets. The quickest way to get into a game.

I think the Colts win. The question is do they win by a lot and cover or a little and don’t. A week ago I felt they would win this game by more than 14 points, but that seems to be the school of thought for most people, which bothers me. Plus, that bet is not available to me so I have changed my mind.

At this point, I am calling for a close game. In fact, this game will go into OVERTIME and the Colts will win it on a field goal 38-35. Here are the plays.

Colts Moneyline
50 Saints +5

Will there be a 2pt conversion Yes +450
Will there be a def or special teams TD yes +145
Will the game go into OT Yes +900
Brees over 277.5 -135
Garcon yards over 60.5 -120
Collie receptions over 4.5 +115
First TD: (I usually pick a couple)
Meachum +1200
Wayne +650
Collie +1000

Place a bet and get interested in the game. Good Luck!

Saturday in February

Pray for rain so we don't feel guilty watching hoops all day.

10 plays total. 3 biggest plays in green for $$$$.

West Virginia -6.5 at St. Johns. Huggins team is improving this late in the year, if two teams stumble, they may end up as a #1 seed.

Georgetown -3.5 at Home vs Villanova. Time for Nova' to have their loss. Hope the line moves down to 2.5.

Kstate -4.5 @ Iowa St.. Iowa St. has not been the same since the deserted left for Germany. Don't even want to look up his name.

UAB -8 @ Rice. I am a fan of uptempo games with better athletes. Despite the point guard play of Bryan Beasley for Rice.

Gonzaga +4 @ Memphis. Gonzaga is tested and has played several of these games in the past, this is new territory for the Memphis players. Rebounding is the key in this match up, plus Memphis is too stubborn to double Harris, he goes off.

Clemson +2 @ Va Tech. Va tech can't enjoy success, they will lose this one.

Colorado + 4 vs Missouri @ boulder. Buffs battle, will win outright.

Texas -7 @ Oklahoma. OU is a bad team, despite having some good players

Kansas-21 v Nebraska. Nebraska is terrible. They buck every trend, will let KU have a laugher.

St. Mary’s -17 vs USF. Dons back to reality, no answer for Samhan, and the 3's will rain when they double down. Gaels shoot it well at home.
