Go Chicago!

As part of my sportsbook whoring late last year, I earned a couple of free futures bets on the Superbowl. I ended up taking Chicago for $50 at 4.5 -1 odds. I also had San Diego at 15-1 (see above). If those fawking Patriots would not have ruined my plans, I could have easially had future bets at huge odds on both sides of the game. Normally, I would be looking to hedge something like that, but I think you would be retarded to lay 7 points on either team. I will be loading up on Chicago +7, and prolly take some money line action as well. I see this as a close game if Grossman sucks, or an easy win for Chicago, if he plays well. Either way they cover. I hate taking the dog in the superbowl, but when I have I have never been wrong. Chicago has the defense to slow down Indy, and the size and running game to expose Indy's weak running defense and control the clock. This one is looking like quite the lock, and it may have been good that S.D already choked. If they were in the game, I may have put way to much on thier side.

I completely agree man. Either team plus 7 points should be a great bet the way I see this game. You're totally right in my book, the Bears could win outright (blow the Colts out, even), or the Colts could win a close one. I couldn't believe the line was 7 points when I first saw it. I think people have just already decided a long time ago that the AFC would be a touchdown favorite in the Big Game, and then they failed to adjust that when the 3rd or 4th best team in the AFC ended up against the best in the NFC.

Nice pick.
