“This is why you lift all them weights. This is why you do all that (expletive).”
The great Bill Parcells quote captures the enormousness of what the Super Bowl represents. As bettors, we need to employ a similar work ethic and dedication to be successful Sunday. The things we preach at VSiN (aside from reading Point Spread Weekly, which you’re already doing, so good job!) are of added importance this week.
Having multiple outs and getting the best of the number is of utmost importance at all times, but it is magnified with the hundreds of props available. Not only do multiple outs provide a great shot at getting the best prices, but the large variance in some of these markets often provides chances to set yourself up for some middle opportunities. One book might have the “length of the national anthem” prop at 116 seconds, while another has it at 120, for example.
One general bit of advice on player props is to fire as soon as possible if you like an Over and wait close to game time if you like the Under. The public loves to bet big names, and they love to bet Overs. The Super Bowl sees a ton of recreational money, so these Overs will generally get bumped up as the week goes on. What’s really interesting is how many big names are in Sunday’s game. Even complementary players such as Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown and Leonard Fournette are name-brand players to whom bettors will flock, in addition to the marquee names like Tom Brady, Patrick Mahomes, Mike Evans, Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill. Overs now, Unders later.
