  chancho: From

<Less than 24 hours after the Super Bowl XLIX matchup was set, the betting lines have moved from the Seahawks holding a slight edge over the Patriots to there being no favorite at all.

As it became clear the Pats were going to beat the Colts, Seattle opened as high as 2.5-point favorites at multiple Las Vegas sports books, but has since turned into a pick ‘em at a few different books as of 11 a.m. on Monday, including the Westgate Superbook, MGM Mirage, and Stations, while list their consensus as a pick ‘em as well.

A couple books that feature a favorite include Wynn LV and CG Technology with the Seahawks as 1-point favorites. William Hill did not have odds posted as of 11 a.m. The over/under VI consensus for total points is 49 points.

If the pick ‘em holds until game time on Feb. 1, it would mark the first time the Super Bowl has ever kicked off without a betting favorite. The Seahawks went into Super Bowl XLVIII as 2.5-point underdogs before torching the Denver Broncos, while in the Patriots last trip to the Big Game – a 21-17 loss to the Giants in Super Bowl XLVI – they were favored between 2.5 and 3 points.>

  WannaBe: <chancho> Well, let's take a look, (thanks to Wiki)... Starting at last year's match up:

2014 Denver -2, Seattle in a blow out
2013 San Francisco -4, Ravens won by 4
2012 New England -2.5, Giants won by 4
2011* Packers -3, Packers won by 6
2010 Colts -5, Saints in a blow out
2009* Steelers -7, Pittsburgh won by 4
2008 New England -12, Giants won by 3
2007* Colts -7, Colts won by 12
2006* Steelers -4, Pittsburgh won by 11
2005 New England -7, Patriots won by 3
2004 New England -7, Patriots won by 3
2003 Raiders -4, Bucs just scored again
2002 Rams -14, Patriots won by 3
2001* Ravens -3, Baltimore won by blow out

*Favored covered the spread.

As we can see, when New England Patriots were favored, their record of covering the spread were not good. But that 2002 upset of "Greatest Show on Turf" was something else.

And then them getting upset (twice) by them Giants were also something else. (Hellllllllo David Tyree!)

So, I guess if you have money burning a hole in your pocket and want to bet, take the under-dog and the points, if not, take the underdog in the money line.

But what happens when both teams are listed at -110 or -115 ??

  Mating Net: <2003 Raiders -4, Bucs just scored again> Good one Bugsy, that's some real <WannaBe> wit right there.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Mating Net> You have no idea how miserable that game was for me.

1. I'm Die-heart/hard Raiders fan.

2. To hedge, I place $22 on the Bucs and $22 on the over of that game. (Yeah, I'm cheap...)

3. Then we learned the starting center went AWOL.

4. Coach Chucky just took out his revenge on the Davis family and the Raiders.


Premium Chessgames Member
  Mating Net: I'm sorry to hear that Bugsy. If it's any consolation, it was all smiles for me. Warren Sapp is /was one of my all time favorite players.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Mating Net> Honest to goodness, without lookin' it up. I can't even name the starting QB for the Bucs for that game...

we started some white guy that was on his last leg of NFL career. Maybe it was Joe Montana.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Mating Net: The Bucs are the last team to win a SB without a star QB. Brad Johnson for the Bucs, and Rich, pick six Gannon for da Raiders.

  Mating Net: <Wannabe> Holly carrot patch, do you believe this?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Hip, Hip, Hooray!! I get to listen to a Kings game (I actually rather listen to sports on radio than watching on TV).

Kings are at the Sharks tonight, but unfortunately, I have to listen to San Jose announcers, instead of Fox and Miller.

  WannaBe: Kiffin will remain at Alabama, and not rejoin the NFL rank.

  WannaBe: Oy Vey, Boo-ins got blown out by the Ducks. Gonna be a long season, maybe we'll get invited to the College Basketball Tournament.

You know the one tournament that's (eve) lower than NIT?

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Well, first off, congratulations to Coach K. of Duke as the first Div-I NCAA basketball coach to reach 1,000 wins.

Now, the losing coach, Steve Lavin of St. John's, is ex-UCLA basketball coach.

He is now a trivia answer. =))

  WannaBe: I guess Norway is Best at Nothing, and how about those Best at Drinking Beer! I'm moving there.

And how about "Most Likely to Give Public Official a Gift", *wink* *wink*

Premium Chessgames Member
  Mating Net: A tough decision by the Kings, but necessary in the salary cap NHL.
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: Thanks for the pun suggestions! I submitted <Wolfgang Puc> for W Dittmann vs Puc, 1956, which looks like a winner - a very dramatic finish. Can't find a good game for <The Mato Karl Method> - all games between Mato and Karl/Carl were drawn except for K Schiffer vs M Damjanovic, 1971, which was decided by a blunder.

  WannaBe: <FSR> It's all goooooooooood.
