Shumpty’s Punt: Super Bowl Special

The Super Bowl kicks off at 9am Brisbane time on Monday morning.  I have really enjoyed the season of the NFL, the New York Jets form notwithstanding, and now we are at the pointy end it comes down to the two best sides in the competition battling it out for the spoils of the Super Bowl.  One team, the Seattle Seahawks, is the best defensive team in the NFL and the other team, the Denver Broncos, is the best offensive team in the NFL. All of which will make for a very interesting finale to the 2013/14 season.

I have been impressed with the play of the Seattle Seahawks all season and I see no reason to doubt they will defy the current odds, and the weight of sentiment support chafing for a Manning led Denver Bronco victory.  I am tipping the Seahawks to win. To be on the safe side though, I will be taking the 1.5 line available.

This encounter though is unlikely to a free flowing and high scoring affair given the likely weather conditions and the fact that the Seahawks have proven themselves to be absolute masters of shutting down an opposition and that being the case I do not expect the teams to get anywhere the “above / below” points line which is currently set at 47.5 points.

That being the case, my Super Bowl best bet is a double of these two suggested bets as follows :

Seattle Seahawks to cover the line (+1.5 points) into a total points score of less than 47.5 points.

On sportingbet.com.au this double is paying $3.60.

This will be a fascinating battle.  If you are having a bet: good luck! If not: sit back and enjoy one of the great days in the annual sporting calendar.
