As long as Super Bowl XLIX is NOT won by the Seahawks, Patriots or Broncos, my wager is guaranteed to be a winner. Granted, those three are in the top 4 teams, so my bets are still underdogs a bit, but history shows us that anything can happen in the NFL playoffs, so I like my chances.
You can see from the screenshot that I wagered a total of $38. (I know, you deep pocket sports players will chuckle). The smallest amount I can win is on the Dallas Cowboys, who beat the favorite Seahawks this season. I risked $5 to win $40. My biggest score would occur if the Baltimore Ravens win it all and I’d enjoy a $200 win for my $5 wager, or a 4000% ROI. Take that, stock market!
So, who am I pulling for to win the Super Bowl on February 2, 2015? Anybody but the SeaPatCos!
The playoffs start Saturday, Jan 3rd, so I got these bets in just under the wire. I am betting with Bovada.LV, as you might be able to tell from the screen grab. I love the long shot prop bets. I’m not a professional sports bettor. I’m more of a slots player, hoping for a couple of spins that pay off big.

The Ravens vs. Panthers would pay the best at 125:1. A small $10 bet would win you $1250! I took a few of these. Some are not bad probabilities, for example Colts vs. Cowboys could very well happen, and it pays 45:1. Some football fans can no doubt find value in these outrageous prop bet payoffs.
Update – 1/5/2015
I found 7:1 odds on the Denver Broncos to win the Super Bowl over at Carbonsports.ag, so I put down $10 to win $70. This brings my total “to win the super bowl” to $48 wagered. That means my Dallas Cowboy win is a slight loser (collecting only $40 if they win it). It was hard to pass up the Broncos at 7:1 though, as they are another of the top 4 teams.

The Broncos went down to the Colts, so I am now simply rooting against the “SeaPats”. I will be honest, I like the Colt’s chances against the Patriots more than I the Packers vs. Seahawks, what with Aaron Rodgers practically sitting in a wheelchair, 3 steps behind center.
Never count out the Green Bay Packers though. We are down to 4 great teams. I just hope I have a dog in hunt after this coming Sunday. Go Colts! Go Packers!
So sad! How did the Packers lose that game against the Seahawks? I had two dogs in the hunt yesterday, and am absolutely dog-less as it stands today.
It was a fun run, and always enjoyable playing those long shot props. Just sad that we have no Cinderella in this year’s Super Bowl.
Maybe we can find some crazy prop bet on the Super Bowl itself and salvage my $38 bet. We shall see!
