StraitPinkie looks at some of the better/more interesting props available for this years Super Bowl. If you don’t have a bookie to take your action or don’t understand money lines, no worries this is for entertainment purposes not financially advice…bet an adult beverage drink (aka shot) with you game watching pals. If you decide to go my way, please make sure to have a D.D. at the ready or call a cab. Bet: Will any Baltimore or San Francisco player on the active roster be arrested during the week before Super Bowl XLVII? Line: Yes (5/1) StraitSportsG Pick: Despite, the evil that is New Orleans, I am going to go with no on this one. Ray is a little older and much wiser and I am guessing the Niners fear Jim Harbaugh enough to stay low key. Bet: How long will Alicia Keys take to sing the National Anthem? Line: Over/under 2 minutes, 15 seconds StraitSportsG Pick: A little YouTube search for “Super Bowl National Anthem” pulls some of the more recent renditions. The ones just short of 2:15 were Aguilera’s attempt and she left out some words to get under that time and the Dixie Chicks whose stubby lead singer has a disdain for America. I am going to take the over on this one. I expect a beautiful song by an amazing singer. Bet: Will Alicia Keys forget or omit at least one word of the National Anthem? Line: Yes +150, No -200 StraitSportsG Pick: No Way. She is a professional not like that hack Xtina Bet: Will either Jack or Jackie Harbaugh be shown on TV wearing any clothing that has either a SF or BAL logo on it? Line: Yes +200, No -300 StraitSportsG Pick: Unless this lovely couple are liars they will be wearing no team colors. Coach Harbaugh stated during a press conference that he and his lovely wife will be neutrally dressed…and I believe him. Unless he is setting himself up for a big score like Brad Pitt in Snatch! Crap…is Harbaugh a gypsy name? Bet: How many times will Jack Harbaugh be shown on TV during the game? Line: Over/under 1.5 StraitSportsG Pick: I think this could be the first quarter bet and you would still take the over! Any score or coaching situation will lead to a camera view of the Harbaughs. Bet: How many times will the game be referred to as the Harbaugh Bowl or Har Bowl or Super Baugh during the game? Line: Over/under 2.5 StraitSportsG Pick: Again…OVER. Just think Brent Musburger and the term “Honey Badger” in 2012 National Championship game! Bet: Coin toss results Line: Heads (-105), Tails (-105) StraitSportsG Pick: 50/50 right…unless Two-Face is flipping, stay away Bet: Team to score first wins the game? Line: Yes (-180), No (+150 StraitSportsG Pick: I am going No on this one…why? who knows really? Bet: Who will score the first touchdown in the Super Bowl? Line: Frank Gore (13/2) Ray Rice (15/2) Michael Crabtree (15/2) Anquan Boldin (8/1) Colin Kaepernick (8/1) Vernon Davis (9/1) Torrey Smith (10/1) Dennis Pitta (12/1) Randy Moss (12/1) Delanie Walker (18/1) Bernard Pierce (20/1) Ed Dickson (25/1) Jacoby Jones (25/1) Joe Flacco (30/1) Vonta Leach (33/1) Ed Reed (33/1) Anthony Dixon (33/1) Ted Ginn, Jr (33/1) Ray Lewis (50/1) Field (17/2) No TD (75/1) StraitSportsG Pick: Danger Will Robinson! This might be like the Derby where you take 3 or 4 to win. On the Ravens side I really like Anquan Boldin and Dennis Pitta. On the Niners side I would go with Frank Gore and Crabtree. If you like one person, go heavy on that guy. Bet: Will there be a scoreless quarter in the game? Line: Yes (+300), No (-400) StraitSportsG Pick: I like Yes! These two teams are defensive beasts and neither team allowed a score in the 2nd Half of last weeks conference championships games. Bet: Longest touchdown will be … Line: Over/under 46.5 StraitSportsG Pick: Tough one here…Kaepernick is dangerous and Torey Smith and Jacoby Jones make a living down the field. Can either defense make the huge mistake? The Niners have only allowed 3 TD’s farther than 21 yds this season. I am just throwing out No…take it or leave it but don’t blame me! Bet: How many successful field goals will be kicked in the game? Line: Over/under 3.5 StraitSportsG Pick: Tough Defenses that don’t want to give up that td tend to allow field goal attempts. Despite David Akers downfall this season, both kickers could end up with 2 or 3 field goals in a very tight game. Bet: Ray Rice total rushing yards Line: Over/under 69.5 StraitSportsG Pick: I say under. I expect the Ravens to abandon the run early. Rice may end up with some dangerous catches out of the backfield and play a big role…I just don’t think it’s from a handoff. Bet: Over/under tackles by Ray Lewis Line: 11.5 StraitSportsG Pick: Under. Lewis’ last three games solo tackles: 9,10,6. Bet: Total Joe Flacco passing yards Line: Over/under 250 StraitSportsG Pick: The Niners are giving up 200 yds per game this season. Flacco has thrown for less than 250 yds 9 times this season…but I think the Ravens abandon the run game and is able to move the ball between the 20′s. It’s tight but I think he gets it. Bet: Total passing yards by Colin Kaepernick Line: Over/under 232.5 StraitSportsG Pick: Stay away. Kaepernick and the Niners can win on the ground or through the air. It’s just going to depend on what is working on Super Bowl Sunday. He could throw for 180 yds and run for another 100 or throw for 280 and only run a few times. Bet: Total rushing yards for Frank Gore Line: Over/under 82.5 StraitSportsG Pick: The Ravens are allowing 122 yds per game on the ground and Gore has rushed for 90 and 119. This just depends on the flow but I like Gore to bust through. My Favorite Prop Bet: Will Beyonce be joined by Jay-Z on stage at halftime of the Super Bowl show? Line: Yes +110, No -150 -The Hova loves the big stage…and what’s bigger than the Super Bowl stage!! Again these Picks are for entertainment purposes…don’t bet your rent you delinquents.
