How To Bet Super Bowl XLV

The Street Hustle

In a little more than 24 hours, the Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers will meet in frigid Dallas, Texas in a massive spectacle known as Super Bowl XLV. At stake, the world championship for the year 2010; thus Steeler fans will wave their terrible towels and Packer fans will wear their cheese heads in support of the men that will bring glory to their depressed Rust Belt cities.

Once again, people are asking me my opinion on the point spread, which team will win etc. Jesus, it’s like I’m Lefty Rosenthal. Personally, I follow the Old Man’s advice: never bet on a horse race you don’t the outcome of ahead of time.

However, it is the Super Bowl. Thus, I feel the obligation to do my best Jimmy the Greek.

SO –

This game will come down to the defenses. Pittsburgh Defensive Coordinator Dick LeBeau hired and taught Green Bay Defensive Coordinator Dom Capers everything he knew about the zone blitz. Or so Capers thinks. In reality, LeBeau is like Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. He kept one thing from Capers so he’d always be one play better than his students.

The line in Vegas opened with the Steelers -2. The line moved a half a point. Thus using the LeBeau as Heenan concept crossed with the Steve Fisher Half Point Move Theory, I recommend going against the favorite and taking the Steelers and the points.

If that simple bettors logic doesn’t do it for you, you can use my other sure thing method: dance in a circle, chant and toss chicken bones.
