    "The crux of the issue when favored teams keep covering spreads are, naturally, the spreads themselves. Oddsmakers are trying not to muss it up too badly for the playoffs, but still fear the kind of payouts bettors will accrue if the Seahawks or Colts somehow win the Super Bowl.

    Their odds at the beginning of the season were 75-1 and 200-1, respectively. At this point, it’s a damned if they do, damned if they don’t situation."

  • Sure wish I would have got in at 75 to 1. I did bet for us to win the SB at 30-1, and the NFC at 12-1. $50 each. (Also bet $50 at 4-1 that we would win the NFC West and lost that by a stupid half game!)

  • I have 75-1 on Seahawks to win the Super Bowl. And for every one of me there are 75 packers betters, 200 giants betters, 150 patriots betters and 50 steelers betters etc etc etc.

    Vegas won't lose if Seattle wins the Super Bowl believe me

    I tried to, but I was rebuked! The casino told me they had all their capital tied up in a 16-1 over/under bet with Largent80.

  • I put 50 dollars down on the over for 7 1/2 wins. God I wish I put money on the superbowl. I was talking them up like they would be that good. I was there In early August, not sure what the odds were then. My ticket for the over only pays roughly 97...
