Superbowl Betting Props:  Faces In The Crowd

We’ll wrap up our examination of the non-sport Superbowl betting props with a number of related wagers from Bodog.  We’ll then start to look at the game itself, including the matchup between the New Orleans Saints and Indianapolis Colts and our side and total recommendations.  We’ll also go over the ‘in game’ prop bets since there’s always good wagering value to be found there.

This last series of prop bet I’m going to call ‘faces in the crowd’ and you’ll understand why once we get into the bets themselves.  I’m going to group all of these together as we’ll take a similar strategy on all of them:

How Many Times will CBS show Archie Manning on TV during the Game?

OVER 4 -160
UNDER 4 +130

There are similar prop bets listed for Eli Manning, Tony Dungy, Kim Kardashian, as well as Bourbon Street in New Orleans and South Beach in Miami.  In all cases they have to appear in live pictures (no pre-recorded video or still shots) during the actual game (no pregame or postgame coverage).

As we discussed early on, a good fundamental premise with Superbowl betting props is that in most cases you’re better off going against the ‘public’.  And in the case of prop bets, the public would much rather bet that something *will* happen than bet that something *won’t* happen.  This applies to these ‘faces in the crowd’ prop bets as well.

Furthermore, keep in mind that the Superbowl broadcast is a tightly scheduled affair due primarily to the value of the TV time.  CBS will use every opportunity to get in another commercial (since they’re getting paid $3 million bucks per 30 second slot) and to promote their own programs during the broadcast.  There won’t be as much ‘idle time’ to spend panning the crowd as in a typical game.  A reaction shot here and there is to be expected, but I’m of the opinion that none of the subjects of these bets will get as much face time as people are thinking.

In other words, play ’em all Under…

PLAY NUMBER OF TIMES CBS TV WILL SHOW ELI MANNING, ARCHIE MANNING, KIM KARDASHIAN, TONY DUNGY, SOUTH BEACH AND/OR BOURBON STREET UNDER
