The day has arrived. It is officially time to make our Super Bowl pick. Depending on the book you checked, the line either opened at a pick em or the Rams as a slight favorite. However, the public immediately hammered the Patriots and the line shifted swiftly to New England -2.5. Our model thinks Vegas had it right at the opening line, and the public is wrong.
Ah, prop bets. These are easily the most fun bets to make. You find yourself rooting for oddities throughout the game, and it just makes watching that much more enjoyable.

Since it's virtually impossible to count things like moneylines and teasers into a record, we count these bets exclusively... Continue Reading →
The model likes the Colts +1.5 over the Texans in a game that projects to be a showdown between Andrew Luck and Deshaun Watson. Both defenses are stout against the run but are generous against the pass. It’s no surprise that this game has the highest total of the weekend.
