Well, baseball is over folks. The only thing left to do is hand out the hardware to the best players of the season. I don’t want to spend too much time tooting my own horn but if you were smart enough to follow my advice on the World Series, you might have noticed that my prediction of the Boston Red Sox beating the St. Louis Cardinals in six games was correct. That was one of the easier predictions I’ve had to make in quite a while. With the Super Bowl coming up, the betting is going to become a lot more fun.
Is it too early to be talking about Super Bowl betting? Never! This year, there are so many options for Superbowl betting, you’d be crazy to not at least think about it. You can bet the very traditional route like most folks do week to week by betting on the point spread. That’s your basic give or take points based on the spread and pick the winner. You can bet the money line which is a straight up win-loss bet where your earnings are based on the odds. An underdog can payoff pretty well but the obvious bets will require more money upfront to pay off big. Then there is the over-under where you bet a games total combined points will either be above or below a certain number.
Other fun ways to bet on the football and especially the Super Bowl are the various Super Bowl props. Prop bets are about betting on the smaller parts of the game: Who will score the game’s first touchdown? Which team will score first? Will the coin toss be heads or tails? Which team will rack up the most penalty yards? The possibilities and excitement with prop bets are endless.
So get ready, football fans. This winter is sure to be one of the best yet.
