Tony Digs kicked off the prop talk with a blog on Monday and I’m here to throw a few more in your face as we inch closer to Sunday. Before you quit out of the browser cause you think all my props are about Brady, know I got a few more up my sleeve than just a Tom touchdown.
Brady TD in the Third Quarter – Yes +115
Lets get this out of the way. These Super Bowls can sometimes start a little awkwardly for the Patriots. With that being said, if they win the toss they’ll differ but if the Rams get the ball in the second half and score, Brady will answer right away. Might be the biggest lock of a prop I have on the board.
Sony Michel 1st Half TD +175
Michel to score the first touchdown is another prop I thought about but I like this one of him scoring in the first half. If we get the ball down inside the 5, we’ll give the ball to Sony at least twice and with the way our offensive line is pushing people around, I like the chance we score.
James White First half TD +275
Pairing the Michel prop with this prop is the smart move cause there is a chance they both score. If the ball is outside the 5 and we’re in the red zone, James White is in the game with the run pass threat. As everyone knows, Brady throws it to the back A LOT in the Super Bowl.
Philip Dorsett Touchdown +215
Philip Dorsett has had a touchdown in both of our playoff games this year. He’ll likely have a closer eye on him but in the red zone all eyes are on Gronk and Edelman.
Brandin Cooks under 5.5 catches -140
Tony also had this prop on his list so if you haven’t bet it yet, take it now. The Patriots will not let Cooks beat them. Gilmore is the best corner in the NFL this year and there’s no way he gets 6 catches.
Gerald Everett over 23.5 yards -115
Gerald Everett is a guy that will have to make plays if the Rams have any chance. I think he can get 23 yards in a catch so I like this over. Everett is the Rams Dorsett so a TD might be something to think about.
Largest Lead in The Game Under 14.5 points +100
If a team is leading by 14, I think both the Patriots and the Rams will do whatever it takes to score a touchdown. Neither coach is going to want to get down big and I expect this to be close to the end.
Longest Field Goal Over 47.5 yards -105
With Gostowski and Zuerlein being the two kickers, both are proven studs from deep. I think if there’s a field goal in the 47-55 range, it will be taken by either kicker, especially with the game being indoors.
Roughing the Passer Penalty +155
At some point I think one of these is called. I might be completely wrong, especially after the controversy in the AFC game, but I’m not not going to take this bet with Suh on the field.
This game has the makings for an overtime thriller. That, and we all get free wings thanks to BWW’s and Pat for a hell of a deal. Pats win in overtime is the ideal situation. Pats win in regulation, also not a terrible situation.
The Super Bowl is the Super Bowl of gambling (Trademark) so good luck picking the right props. Tony’s got mostly winners, I got mostly losers so we’ll meet in the middle.
