With it being “The Big Game”, we wanted our readers to have multiple takes on Super Bowl 2020. In this article, you’ll get the opinion of one of the most astute NFL Cappers on the web, Ted Walker. Ted thinks the game will be close. Get his pick to win the SB here!
As we get closer to the big game, more and more Super Bowl props come available for us to bet on. While many will be donking off their loot on coin flip bets (literally), there’s some good money to be made if you have a strong sense of conviction with regards to which team will win and by how many. Did you know that you can bet the San Francisco 49ers at -12 and receive +400 odds? Conversely, if you’re in love with the Chiefs you can wager on them at -13.5 +380. Loot takes a look at these bets as well as TD and FG props, QB props and Super Bowl MVP proposition wagers.
Professional Football Handicapper Dan Jamison gives his pick with analysis on who he thinks will win Super Bowl 54 as well as some prop bets worth betting.
With so many eyes on the Super Bowl, sportsbooks roll out hundreds of proposition wagers ranging from whether the coin toss will be heads or tails, all the way down to how many times an announcer will mention something. Loot takes a look at some of the more practical Super Bowl LIV prop bets you can cash in on.
As we wind down to “The Big Game”, we’re having multiple writers do their thing so our readers can get all their takes, even if they differ. In this article, Keith Allen makes a case for the KC Chiefs to win the Super Bowl and gives us and over/under pick as well!
And then there were two! Super Bowl LIV takes place in Miami in a couple weeks where the Kansas City Chiefs have opened as a -1 favorite over the San Francisco 49ers. KC hasn’t been to the big dance in 50 years. The Niners have had their fare share of Super Bowl appearances, but not for a couple decades. Loot takes an early look at the teams playing in SB LIV.
Many were surprised to see the NFC Championship game point spread to be as high as -7.5 in favor of the San Francisco 49ers. Not us! The Niners defense is healthy again. The same defense that burnt down the Packers house to the tune of 37-8 at Levi’s Stadium on November 24th. SF is in a prime position to win the Super Bowl this year and it’s not likely that the Pack will be able to stop them.
Some analysts are concerned about the Titans ability to keep up with the Chiefs scoring, especially with their lack of a passing game in recent weeks. But that didn’t hold them back in their earlier meeting a 35-32 win at home. In the victory the stat line showed Tennessee amassing 146 passing yards and 225 rushing yards. Read on to get Loot’s AFC Championship prediction.
Week 19 NFL provides us with a matchup that is sure to provide excitement and drama, as crazy things usually happen when the Seahawks and Packers meet. The 2012 “Fail Mary” and 2014 playoff overtime thriller are just two examples of the fireworks displayed when Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers go head to head. Ted’s predicting a close game where he sees the Cheeseheads moving on, but the Hawks covering. See his full take before placing your bet!
The Kansas City Chiefs play host to the Houston Texans as -9.5 home favorites Sunday afternoon Arrowhead in a game that is likely to baffle most recreational bettors. Many will remember that Houston went into KC in Week 6 and beat the Chiefs, hindering their ability to handicap this one properly. QB Pat Mahomes was hurt and KC wasn’t playing very well at the time. They’ve since won four out of their last five games by double digits and Mahomes looks as good as ever. Unbelievably, 50% of the money is coming in on the Texans! Keith gives 3 reasons why his pick is the Chiefs to cover the spread.
The NFL’s version of David vs. Goliath takes place in the Divisional Playoffs Saturday night night at MT&T Bank Stadium as the Baltimore Ravens play host to the Tennessee Titans as hefty -9 favorites. Winners of 12 in a row, the Ravens pretty much blew out all but two opponents during that stretch, with the exceptions being the Bills and Niners, a pair of running teams. Can Derrick Henry keep the Cinderella dream alive?
The Vikings shut down the Saints offense for the majority of the game. They are banged up in the secondary so a repeat this week in the Divisional Round may be a difficult task. That said they have proven all season that they can shut down TEs and may be able to limit SF’s best weapon George Kittle.
Wildcard Weekend brings us a Saturday night matchup between the Tennessee Titans and New England Patriots that should be one of the better played games of the 2019/2020 NFL season. Neither team is turnover prone which should keep it close throughout. The Pats looked like garbage last week vs. the Dolphins and Mike Vrabel comes back to Foxboro which is an interesting variable in itself. With a point spread of +5, this game is tricky from a betting perspective. Check out Ted’s take before making your bet!
There’s a common misconception that the Seattle Seahawks suck on the road. Most aren’t seemingly aware that the Hawks went 7-1 away from home this season. The Eagles come into this NFC Wildcard game winners of four games in a row, but that’s not as impressive as it sounds when you see that they beat the Skins, Cowboys and Giants twice. The public is heavy on the Seahawks and they might be right!
The Buffalo Bills take on the Houston Texans in an AFC Wild Card game at NRG Stadium Saturday where oddsmakers have made the Texans a slight -2.5 home favorite. Keith points out that the Bills got this far because of a weak schedule. See his other takes that support his Texans pick before placing your bets!
Minnesota dropped their last two games, but they were shorthanded two back and last week they rested numerous players for their meaningless game against Chicago. The public is two-fisting the Saints, and the oddsmaker is begging for Vikings action hanging a +8 on the board.
