  • Super Bowl LI final bets with extra sauce

    So, we know this years UJ winner has already been determined (I forget his name), so how about the three of us (4ish) pick six items and see if someone (I figure me) can surpass Mr Barely In First Place.

    Feel free to participate, but the only important picking will be done by the three of us that picked 5 games during every regular season game, and also picked every playoff matchup.

    Here are the items I felt were not stupid:

    Which team scores first?

    What will the first score be: Safety, Field Goal or Touchdown?

    Who will lead at halftime, or will it be tied?

    Which team will score last?

    Over/Under 59 point combined?

    Who will win given New England -3, or do you think NE will win by 3 points?

        I would like to also say a special shout out to Richard Cabesa for posting the line every week without any complaints, and to Slapaho for help getting the results going without being asked. And for losing.

          You only answered 5 of 6, and all Canadian participants get a special participation ribbon. Keep an eye on your mail box.

Usurper of percentages. Supreme OverLord of the spread pool. Conqueror of the sports forum lands. Absolute ruler of the sports spread pool realm. Defender of the push. Sovereign Lord over all spread pool wannabes, should he not get more than 1 correct.

                          I don't like the "usurper of percentages" part. Not one bit.

                            There was an 87% chance that you wouldn't.

                              Which team scores first? Atlanta. The Falcons will come out with their first 15 or so plays scripted and well practiced. If they get the ball first I can easily see them marching down the field.

                              What will the first score be:
                              Touchdown. See above.

                              Who will lead at halftime, or will it be tied?
                              Atlanta

                              Which team will score last?
                              New England. They'll be behind on the scoreboard and throwing the ball.

                              Over/Under 59 point combined?
                              Under. I don't think this game will turn into the shootout that everyone is expecting. Atlanta has the superior running game and I think they'll use it to control the clock and keep Brady off the field.

                              Who will win given New England -3, or do you think NE will win by 3 points? Atlanta +3
