My Arizona Cardinals prop bet was a pretty big disappointment. I plan to make a few wagers on Super Bowl 50, and I want to open this to community suggestions. I have two wagers on right now, taking Denver +6 and Peyton Manning as the MVP. Here’s what is in it for you.
Any Profits are Given Away!
Help me bet smart and any net profit will go to our community via the usual drawings. I plan to donate a prize minimum of $100, so even if we draw a blank, it will be fun and worth your time if my fingers find your name in this old fashioned top hat drawing. We don’t have to bet smart. I’m all for just having fun with it.
My list of winning bets were:
$13 for gatorade being orange.
$5 for Lady Gaga singing under 2:20
$2 for Manning not announcing retirement
$8.70 for panthers making the first coach’s challenge
$19.05 Broncos for the win!
Total win of only $47.75, so we’ll give out the $100 minimum prize drawing. Thanks to everyone who participated! We had ~40 members toss in comments on facebook, here on the post, twitter and G+. It made the game entertaining from the singing of the National Anthem, all the way to when the Broncos almost got that safety in the 4th quarter!
Here’s how to participate.
Comment with your betting suggestions. You can comment here at the bottom of this post, or on our facebook or google+ page. Please check Bovada / Bodog for prop bet suggestions (USA and Canada only, unfortunately).
Is your name in the hat? Check the spreadsheet! Entries List. If you are not on that list, please comment with your betting advice or opinions!
Bovada has over 500 prop bets, and that’s where I’m making my wagers. USA residents can access Bovada and Canadians can access Bodog.
Not from the USA or Canada? You can still participate! Just comment with your betting suggestion on prop bets I post here. Please watch this post. I’ll update with prop suggestions and get everyone’s feedback. Here are a couple to give feedback on immediately and will get your name in the hat:
– Toss will be Heads or Tails? Obviously a fun bet here, and certainly no drawn out drama.
– Will Denver convert a 4th down? Will Carolina convert a 4th down? Both bets are even! I think the team that is losing has a lot better chance of converting a 4th down, since they’ll be the ones going for it on 4th down!
(An “EVEN” bet means that if I bet $10 and win, I get $20. My $10 wager, plus $10 winnings).
Broncos will succesfully complete a 4th down. $10
Points = OVER 45.0 $18.18
YES there will be a safety in the game. $60
First offensive play will be a penalty. $100
First coaches challenge = Panthers. $8.70
MVP = Manning. $55
Broncos +6. $19.05
Archie Manning shown OVER 1.5 = $10
Elway shown OVER 2.5 = $10
Liquid color on winning coach (ORANGE) = $13
Will a backup QB take a snap (YES) = $20
Lady Gaga sings UNDER 2:20 = $5
Left Shark WILL make an appearance = $100
Coin Toss HEADS = $9.52
Peyton Manning will NOT announce ret. = $2
100+ entries and I’ll give away $200.
Share, email a friend, like, etc. – If we get to 100+ unique entries, I’ll bump the minimum up to $200. So even if our net winnings from our genius bets fail us, you guys will still have a shot at some lunch money. I’ll keep a spreadsheet and share it here as usual, so you guys can keep up with our progress.
Why did I take Denver +6?
I picked Denver mainly because of a NFL prediction tracker site that I like to follow, predicts a closer game than 6 points, and some of the better pickers (Dan Hanson) have Denver winning outright.
Here is a screenshot of my current meager $20 bets on the Broncos and Manning.
Go Broncos (or whoever and whatever crazy bets you guys help me decide on)!
