1 part broth, 1 part noodles, and 1 teardrop from Pete Carroll…

+ What a game last night. Wow. Probably the most dramatic ending of a football game I’ve ever seen with the twists and turns and the stakes so high. And the fact that the team I was pulling for came out on the winning end? That definitely felt good, not gonna lie.

More thoughts in a minute, but did anyone win my Prop Best Contest???

My Super Bowl XLIX Pick

At the beginning of the season I picked the New England Patriots to lose in the super bowl. (It doesn’t matter who I predicted they lose to – cough, the Saints cough.)

I’m sticking with that, despite the fact that my picks have been terrible all year.

Do I think the Pats can win? Of course. They’re the favorites, they looked better in their last game, and if Sherman or Thomas or more injured than they are letting on, it could be a huge hit for Seattle.

That being said, the Seahawks defense is ridiculous, and Russell Wilson seems like he can pull out anything.

Seahawks 24, Patriots 20.

(but go Pats!)

My Super Bowl XLIX Prop Bet Contest

UPDATE: The contest is now closed.

I’m excited to announce the return of my annual Super Bowl Prop Bet Contest! I missed it last year, but two years ago we had over 50 entrants and the year before was fun as well.

Here’s the deal: I’ve listed 12 prop bets from Sunday’s game. In most cases these are actual bets you can make in Vegas or offshore. Some will rely on your football knowledge, others on sheer luck.

What do you get if you make great picks?

1 part broth, 1 part noodles, and 4 ounces of giraffe butter…

+ I went 2-2 with my NFL picks this weekend but man, it was the best 2-2 you could ever have.

I picked the Pats to win by 6 and they won by 4. BOOM!

I told you the Panthers could score a late TD to cover down 31-13 and THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED! Well, it was 31-10 when they scored, but still, good job by me and I just missed the cover. (the line actually closed at -14.0, a push.)

I picked the Cowboys to lose by 3 and they lost by 5. BOOM!

And i was completely off on the Broncos game. NOT BOOM!
