Chappy: The Championship games never go the way I predict they will, and shockingly this year was no different. Maybe I just root for the wrong teams. Aside from New Orleans winning it all, I haven’t really had a rooting interest the Super Bowl over the last six years. This year is no exception to the rule. I guess when I put some money down, I’ll have a rooting interest, but at the moment I’m pretty even keel. Instead of actually picking the game we decided to pick the props since I’m sure everyone knows just about everything they need to know to make their picks on the big game.
Championship Week: Chappy (1-1), By (1-1)
Playoffs: Chappy (4-6), By (5-5)
Regular Season: Chap (50-35-4) By (27-20)
Will the coin toss be heads or tails? (PK)
Chappy picks tails never fails!
By picks tails, because it’s been scientifically proven to never fail ~
Will the team that wins the coin toss win the game? (PK)
Chappy picks yes. Obviously if you win the coin toss, luck and momentum is on your side for the rest of the game. I’m not even sure why they play the rest of the game when it’s usually decided in the coin toss. I guess they want to make those millions of dollars on commercials.
By says no. The trend lately is to “defer” the opening kickoff when winning the coin toss. Also known as deferring the win.
Longest TD scored over/under 49 1/2 yards?
Chappy picks over 49 1/2 yards. Not sure I think the Patriots will win me this prop, since they dink and dunk their way down the field, but the Giants always seem to have a long TD or two during their games, so I think one will be over 50 yards.
By picks over 49 1/2 yards. When you have guys like Victor Cruz and Wes Welker, this is a no brainer!
How many times will David Tyree’s catch be shown during the game? O/U 1
Chappy picks Over 1. I’m actually surprised this isn’t higher than 1. If anyone makes a miracle catch during the game doesn’t it feel like they’ll show this play, and they’re going to HAVE to show it sometime in the pregame/intro.
By picks over 1. Seriously? The o/u on this is 1?
What color will Madonna’s hair be? (Blonde -400, Any other color +250)
Chappy picks AOC. Who really wants to bet on something that doesn’t win you much more than the vig!?! One clarification I’d like on this prop though is what if she has streaks of another color in her blonde hair, does that count?
By picks blonde. Madonna is 73 years old, and blonde makes her look 67 years old as oppose to any other color which makes her look 2,142 years old.
Will Michaels or Collinsworth say “Tebow” in the first quarter? (Yes +130, No -160)
Chappy picks yes. Don’t they have to recap how the Patriots got to the Super Bowl including them beating the Denver Tebows? There’s noway they don’t mention Tebow at least once. I can’t believe that “No” is the favorite in this one.
By says yes. They might even say “Tebow” in a sentence like this, “We will try not to mention Tebow tonight.”
How many aircrafts in the flyover during the National Anthem? (1-4 -260, 5+ +180)
Chappy picks 5+. I don’t understand why they still do the fly over when it’s in a dome, but I have to think they go big and waste some extra jet fuel for this meaningless fly over that the fans can’t even see.
By picks 1-4. The country is in a recession and doesn’t want to see excessive amounts of jets being flown over a stadium.
First team to call a timeout? (PK)
Chappy picks New England. They will have to challenge a highly questionable incompletion/tuck by Eli and end up losing their first time out.
By New England. Bill Belichick will call one after the first minute of the game to make sure his team is prepared to execute sitting and listening to the coaches during the half time show. All that practice will pay off.
Which Manning will be showed first? (Peyton -160, Archie PK)
Chappy picks Archie. I’m going for the upset. We know they’ll show both eventually, but what if they are both sitting together? Do I get my money back? If Peyton’s neck was on this prop, I’d be all over it!
By picks Danny!? In a surprise twist, the network will show long lost uncle, Danny Manning.
What will be higher on Feb. 5th Eli Manning completions or Lebron James points?
Chappy picks Eli. Lebron decided long ago that he doesn’t like showing up in championship weekends.
By picks Eli. Eli plays 4 quarters, a full one extra than LeBron in which to complete more passes.
