Prop Bets for Super Bowl 50 from Jesse Schule: National Anthem, Presidents Pick and First to Score

SUPER BOWL 50 PROP BETSSuper Bowl 50 Prop Bets from Jesse Schule: February 7th 2016

Having a look at the available props for this year’s big game, I have isolated a half a dozen that I feel are worthwhile investing in. I’ve decided to give out three of them as free picks, while I also have a variety of player props listed for sale.

Let’s start with the National Anthem, which will be performed by Lady Gaga. The over/under is 134.5 seconds, with the price on the over -150. Admittedly I am not an expert on national anthem performances, but I did do a little investigating, and it sure seems that most performances last in the neighborhood of two minutes. Last year Idina Menzel’s performance lasted roughly 125 seconds. In 2014 Renee Fleming’s performance last 122 seconds. Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson and Kelly Clarkson have all completed the anthem in less than 130 seconds in recent Super Bowls. Lady Gaga took over three minutes to perform a rather casual version of the anthem at New York City’s Gay Pride Parade in 2013, but I would be willing to bet on a more conservative, and shorter performance here at Super Bowl 50.

Every year the President of the United States is asked to pick the Super Bowl winner, and Barrack Obama has yet to reveal his pick. I think it’s almost a forgone conclusion that he’s going to be picking the Panthers. It would be very difficult for him not to, when you consider that they are a heavy favorite, with an MVP quarterback who happens to be incredibly popular. This bet looks like easy money.

Now since the Panthers are the favorite, you can get Denver at +180 to score first. I like this bet because Denver’s defense is good enough to force a punt if Carolina wins the toss, and their offense looked particularly sharp on the opening drive in the AFC championship game. Getting such a good payout on the underdog to open the scoring looks well worth the gamble.

Good Luck To All on Super Bowl Sunday.

Well, Super Bowl 50 is finally upon us and in spite of the 2 high-profile QBs in this game, a LOT has been said about the elite defensive matchup, and rightly so. Both teams held their opponents to under 20 points per game. Both rank in the top 8 in 1st downs allowed. Both fall in the top 10 in sacks percentage. Both teams rank in the top 6 in total yards allowed. Denver ranks 1st in rushing yards allowed while the Panthers sit at #4. Denver is 3rd in passing yards allowed, while Carolina ranks 1st in takeaways. On paper, this game shouldn’t get above 40. BUT we do have 2 of the league’s most dynamic QBs in Cam Newton and Peyton Manning. Cam has done an incredible job this year of staying in the pocket and finding his open receivers. He has hit TE Greg Olson 89 times for 1294 yards while the Broncos’ Demarius Thomas has been targeted 192 times for 1356 yards ranking 5th overall with 111 receptions. I don’t know that we see a lot of Thomas in this game, but let’s not forget about TE Owen Daniels who has become a recent favorite target for Manning. Both QBs claim to be in great form physically and mentally and are emotional prepared for this game. But even should nerves get the better of either of these 2 at some point, these elite defensive units should be good for several takeaways and perhaps even a Manning interception (he had 17 on the year) for a pick-6, right in line with the Panthers 6 for the season. If both teams play a clean game, turnover-free game, we will see a score along the lines of 20-17, but I expect the D’s to step it up a notch for this game and at the very least get some better field position for their offense, particularly the Panthers offense who is an incredible 70% in red zone scoring percentage! And we can never rule out a sack/fumble/recovery/TD on Sunday either. This will be an exciting game to watch and I think we see the defensive efforts for both teams create more scoring opportunities for their respective offenses. Take OVER 44!

This prop is basically a small bet on the Denver Broncos. Denver to win outright is currently +200. Taking Manning to win MVP is +400. We’re basically getting double the payout and if Denver wins the Super Bowl, I believe the NFL will do whatever it can to give Manning the MVP trophy for his last rodeo because it seems almost certain he will retire, especially after his post-game talk with Bill Belichick, after the AFC Championship victory.

Also, another one of my favorite prop(s) is taking almost every Demaryius Thomas prop UNDER. So far I see his total yardage at 67.5 and his total receptions at 5.5. Love the total receptions under. I expect Norman to completely take him out of the game. Thomas is also prone to the dropped ball early on and Peyton and Demaryius do not seem to have solid chemistry right now. Expect Manning to look for Sanders way more often (hint, hint.)

With the Pro Bowl ratings dropping and Goodell threatening future games, the players are improving their Pro Bowl appearance play, but this game will be more about emerging players including rookie QBs Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota instead of the likes of Brady and the Patriots who declined to play. So this is the chance, without the stress of real game pressure, for these young stars to shine, and with defensive play under criticism of late, look for JJ Watt and company to put some real pressure on the offense. I see this game finishing at around the 35-31 mark and UNDER the total. Play the UNDER for the Pro Bowl!

There are a number of reasons why this will be a low scoring game. First of all Carolina is overrated. Yes they’re 15-1 in the regular season. Let’s take a look at who they actually beat to get that “15-1 record”. Nine of those wins came against seven teams that had losing records; Tennessee (3-10) once, Dallas (4-12) once, Jacksonville (5-11) once, Tampa Bay (6-10) twice, NY Giants (6-10) once, New Orleans (7-9) twice, and Philadelphia (7-9) once. Two of those wins came vs two teams that were at .500 for the season; Atlanta (8-8), and Indianapolis (8-8). Only four of those wins were against teams with a winning record; Houston (9-7) who was slightly better than MEDIOCRE, Washington (9-7) who was less than MEDIOCRE most of the year, Green Bay (10-6) who definitely was just not as good this year, and Seattle (10-6) the only “GOOD” team that Carolina beat in the regular season. Their only loss came against the MEDIOCRE Falcons. Arizona is the best team the Panthers have faced this year. And even though Carolina scored often vs the Cardinals, they were aided by Arizona’s SEVEN turnovers.

Denver’s defense will not allow the Panthers to score often. The Broncos are ranked 4th in the NFL in points allowed with 18.5 per game. And Peyton Manning definitely will not be careless with the football.

Carolina’s defense also will not allow the Broncos to score often in this game. The Panthers defense is ranked 6th in the NFL in points allowed at 19.3 per game. Plus, Denver’s offense has struggled to put up points, averaging just over 20 points in their last three games. Not to mention that Peyton Manning is known to choke in the postseason. The Broncos receivers have also had trouble catching the ball this postseason. Both of these teams will be extremely focused, prepared and motivated defensively. No matter who wins this game, this total won’t go over 43 points.

Peyton Manning missed half the season due to injury, so he is well rested. Manning now has a full game under his belt, so you can expect him to be much more consistent this week. Tom Brady can light up the score board on any defense. The Patriots have went over the posted total in their last four playoff games, and the over is 5-1 in New England’s last 6 road games when playing a team with a winning record at home. The over is 34-15 for the Broncos in their last 49 home games when playing a team that has a winning record, and the over is 6-1 in the last 7 games played between these two teams. Denver’s defense just gave up 311 passing yards to an injured Roethlisberger. Tom Brady has a full complement of starting receivers and will be able to move the ball at will today. The Patriots defense has given up at least 20 points in three consecutive games and Denver will have to push the ball to try and keep up with New England. I believe we will see turnovers lead to easy points today making over the play.

We can’t wait for this game. Though both teams are very solid on defense, ranking 6th and 7th for points allowed per game, we also see the number 1 and number 2 offenses do battle with both teams putting up around 31 ppg and 400 ypg. Both quarterbacks have had MVP worth seasons and it seems a bit of a shame that only one of these sides will play in the superbowl as both have had fantastic seasons. Both sides have had a poor loss in their last few games, albeit in meaningless games. However if you take out that game for each side, Carolina have put up 31, 38, 38 & 38 points in their last 4 games. The fact that Carolina put up 31 points in a half against the best secondary in the NFL last week shows how potent their offense can be. Arizona have put up 26, 38, 40 & 23 points in their last 4 games.

As we mentioned, both teams have solid secondarys that have done their job well all season. The Panthers are 3rd in the league at stopping the ground game while the Cards rank 4th. However the Panthers rank just 21st in the air at home, allowing 241.5 ypg while the Cards have also struggled, ranking in 18th and allowing 251.8 ypg on the road. With two dangerous quarterbacks, we should see some completions and plenty of 1st downs. This game has the sense of a shoot out and we think it goes OVER.

The total has gone OVER in 6 of Arizona’s last 9 games on the road. The total has gone OVER in 6 of Carolina’s last 8 games. The total has gone OVER in 5 of Carolina’s last 6 games at home.

For our free pick, take the OVER 47.5 points in this one and enjoy what should be a great game.
