Adding to the excitement of betting the Super Bowl is the numerous amounts of props available to wager on. Bettors can place their money on individual player or team achievements during the game. Some of the fun Super Bowl props are betting the outcome of the coin toss and the length of the national anthem. Another one is betting on the team to score first and if the first score will be a touchdown, field goal or safety. The Super Bowl prop odds we use will be from Bovada Sportsbook.
Let’s take a look at some New England Patriots winning prop selections for the 2012 Super Bowl with the current lines courtesy of Bovada. The current betting line for the New England Patriots total team points in 29 ½ scored in the Super Bowl. New England averages over 32 points per game on the season when your factor in the post season numbers. It is worth noting that New England did not play one single game inside a dome. Just about all of these offensive numbers were achieved on a slow playing surface. The over 29 ½ New England total points is a winning prop wager.
There is a New England Patriots team prop lined right now at Bovada sportsbook that will pay you -125 odds if the Patriots will be the first team to score 10 points in Super Bowl 46. With the fast playing surface I expect Tom Brady to be able to connect quickly with his weapons in the passing game as his tight end duo of Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski will get open a lot sooner. The quick track in Indianapolis allows Brady to go more quickly to Wes Welker in those quick outs. There will be a lot of Patriots yards after the catch from their receivers. Remember we saw the Giants defense have difficulty guarding the only 49ers weapon in the passing game in Vernon Davis as he got behind the Giants secondary twice for touchdowns.
There is a New York Giant team prop that is very appealing and one we will make a play on. The Super Bowl prop for longest touchdown will pay -115 odds on the Giants. Wes Welker, Rob Grownkowski and Aaron Hernandez will often time not outrun secondary’s for huge gains for the Patriots. Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks are the most likely of the all the receivers playing in the Super Bowl to break a catch and run for a big play over 50 yards in this NFL game.
Total number of New York Giants team sacks will be under 2 ½ at -120 odds lined by Bovada sportsbook. I expect the New England Patriots will work hard in their preparation to neutralize the Giants pass rush with quick throws by Tom Brady. Wes Welker will be an effective target early for the Patriots as he is the biggest threat in quick out patterns. Also look for running back Danny Woodhead to be a target in screen plays as the elusive back will be difficult to catch in open field. One of the biggest weapons for the Patriots is their ability to run a no huddle offense that speeds the game and wears out opposing defenses as it prevents substitutions.
