Top 10 Tips for Super Bowl Betting Strategy

10 TIPS TO BETTING SUPER BOWL XLV

The biggest betting day of the year is upon us – Super Bowl 45. Kicking off on Feb. 6, 2011, billions will watch and wager on two of the most historical football teams in NFL history, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers.

But not every sports fan is well versed in the odds, stats and history that come with betting on the big game. That’s why Bodog’s online sportsbook is giving you a betting guide to ensure you get paid like a starting quarterback on Super Bowl Sunday.

  1. Do Your Research
    • There have been NFL spreads on the Super Bowl since the first one way back in 1967. This means you’ve got an endless amount of history to check out before you make your Super Bowl bet.
  2. Don’t Overlook the Underdogs
    • Only two favorites, the 06’ Steelers and the 07’ Colts, have covered the spread in the last nine Super Bowls. Also, the New England dynasty only covered the spread once, way back in 02’ when they upset the St. Louis Rams.
  3. Defense Wins Championships
    • In 2008, the Giants took the trophy by holding the Patriots to 14 points. In 2009, the Steelers won by controlling Kurt Warner and the high-scoring Arizona offense. Last year, the Saints won the Super Bowl by holding the Indianapolis offense to a net of 10 points.
  4. Lower Your Offensive Expectations
    • Five of the last six Super Bowls went “Under” the total, so try not to get too hyped up for a high scoring contest.
  5. Factor in Experience
    • The Steelers have been here before so they are unlikely to be overwhelmed or nervous when they hit the field on Sunday. There are only two Packers with Super Bowl experience, and they both lost the big game in their only appearance.
  6. Look At How Green Bay Got Here
    • The chances of a team moving away from what got them here is hard to imagine. Packers made it this far on the outstanding play of Aaron Rodgers. The Pack are 9-1 ATS when Rodgers throws two or more TD’s this year.
  7. Look At How Pittsburgh Got Here
    • In the case of the Steelers, their style is all about tough D and running the ball down their opponent’s throat. When Pittsburgh running back Rashard Mendenhall gets 20 carries or more, the Steelers are 7-2 ATS this year.
  8. Forget About Past Matchups
    • The last time these two teams met was week 15 of the 2009 season and the Steelers escaped with a 37-36 victory. Both teams combined for more than 900 yards passing. It’s not too likely we’ll see a repeat of that type of defensive carnage. Pittsburgh and Green Bay ranked 1-2 in scoring defense this season.
  9. Cash In on Props
    • Think about the type of strategy each coach will use or how the game might play out and take advantage of the hundreds of props offered. For example, if you think the Packers lack the confidence to run against the Steelers, then look toward the over totals for Aaron Rodgers’ pass attempts and similar props.
  10. Go with your Gut

Sports Betting Might Return to Delaware

Lottery-style Wagering on the Agenda

Legal, lottery-style betting on professional and college sports events might be coming to Delaware. Several recent developments could prompt lawmakers to activate the state’s exemption from the 1992 federal law that generally bans such gambling.

Sports Betting at Sportsbook.comThe governor who opposed sports betting has departed after serving two four-year terms, the maximum allowed. The state projects an estimated $600,000,000 budget deficit for the fiscal year beginning July 1st. Horse racing and slot machines, which have been the pillars of Delaware’s gaming industry, are up against challenges from the introduction and approval of slot machines in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Sports Betting at Superbook.comDelaware’s House of Representatives passed a sports-betting bill in 2008, but it didn’t get past a state Senate committee because of disagreements over operational details, as well as then-Governor Ruth Ann Minner’s opposition.

House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf and Senate Majority Leader Tony DeLuca say a sports betting bill will be introduced after legislators reconvene March 17th. “A properly written bill stands a pretty good chance” of becoming law, Schwartzkopf said.

The Governor has asked the state’s finance office to speak with companines that would be interested in running a sports lottery about the amounts of direct and ancillary revenue this type of betting could produce.

Sports Betting at BetUS.comDelaware, Montana, Nevada, and Oregon have exceptions to the federal sports-betting ban because they had forms of legalized pro and college sports betting before or close to the time when legislation was introduced in 1991. Nevada was the only state with largely unlimited sports betting. Delaware and Oregon had operated sports lotteries, so-named because they require players to wager on more than one outcome in a single bet, know as a parlay. Doing so creates more of an element of chance than is involved with betting on a single outcome in a sporting event.
