The Super Bowl is around the corner, and pay per head services believe that wagering on the game is one of the most exciting things about it. The Patriots will square-off with the Seahawks on Sunday in Arizona, and the proposition bets in this game should definitely be something to look out for.
There are quite a few players to keep an eye on. Russell Wilson and Tom Brady are seen as two of the NFL’s best QB’s, even though they’re not similar at all when they play. With the Seahawks, the defensive element is vital. Regarding the MVP award, it’s good to keep the Seahawks’ “Legion of Boom” in mind, as well as others, as last year LB Malcolm Smith was the one to win the title. New England also aren’t missing any candidates, as RB LeGarrette Blount, CB Darrelle Revis, and TE Rob Gronkowski, could all win the award.
Some prop bets to look out for are the following:
Odds for the player to win the MVP Award (Marshawn Lynch 5/1, Russell Wilson 7/2, Tom Brady 9/5)
QB Brady already won the MVP award on two occasions and again the player has the best odds to win it. Keeping in mind how many more times New England throws than Seattle, it’s logical that Brady’s odds would end up being higher than Wilson’s.The Seahawks QB is also leaving a very bad NFC championship meeting, when four picks were thrown. Rob Gronkowski (9/1) Brandon LaFell (66/1) and Earl Thomas (40/1) are other players to look out for.
What will QB Tom Brady’s first throw be (INT +155, TD -190)
In 2014, Brady had another excellent season, as the player was able to throw for 33 TD’s and only nine picks. But The Seahawks are the ones with the NFL’s most famous secondary, with CB Richard Sherman, DB Kam Chancellor, CB Byron Maxwell and DB Earl Thomas among their ranks. This year, Brady was chosen from both games of the AFC playoffs against below average secondaries in the Colts and Ravens.
Rushing yards by RB Marshawn Lynch (O/U 89.5)
Lynch keeps the Seahawks’ offense running. In this regular season, the RB was able to rush for 1,306 yards, with an 81.6 yards-per-game average. In the title game of the NFC, the player gained 157 ground yards when the team beat the Packers 28-22. 2012 was the last time that the RB faced the Patriots, when on 15 tries was able to rush for 41 yards.
Receiving yards by WR Doug Baldwin (O/U 54.5)
This year, the receiver was able to record 825 receiving yards, and was the one to lead the Seahawks, but pay per head services saw that in the regular season, the player only surpassed 54 yards six times.
Will TE Rob Gronkowski surpass 100 receiving yards (Yes +190, No -230)
The TE could very well be the NFL’s strongest cover. On Sunday, middle LB Bobby Wagner and Chancellor will be the ones to get the job. This year, Gronkowski recorded 1,124 yards as well as 12 TD’s, but he eclipsed the 100 mark on only three occasions.
