The deeper you dig, the better the chance to strike gold. So dig deep.
Last week, we launched a new series exclusively at POINTSPREADS.CA. We call this "Deep Dive." This is the sixth edition of the series, with many more to come. Here are the Deep Dive segments we've published, so far:
Today, we're examining the "NAME THE FINALISTS" options. Here's a screen shot of the current odds at SPREADS.CA
Our objective here is to pick which two teams will play in the Super Bowl.
There are eight live teams still alive. Theoretically, all teams are 4-1 to win their conference, so the odds of any specific matchup are 4 x 4 = 16-1. However, that's not the case since some teams are perceived as better than others.
The prop on "NAME THE FINALISTS" is attractive for bettors who aren't sure about a team winning the Super Bowl, but stand some chance to win the conference title. This is particularly true for live underdogs, which can certainly win two straight games, but might finally run out of gas in the Super Bowl game.
OPINION ON BEST VALUES:
The most popular matchups should get a look. Kansas City vs. Green Bay at 7-1 is probably a decent value. Imagine watching the Super Bowl on a 7x freeroll. Tampa Bay and Kansas City at 9-1 also looks tempting.
For those who agree Tennessee gets no respect, it might be better just to bet the Tians on the moneyline in the next two games, since they will be at home if they advance. The Titans-Packers matchup at 11-1 also looks very attractive.
NOTE: Over the next few weeks leading up to Super Bowl kickoff, we'll be examining some unusual wagering options at SPREADS.CA. The Deep Dive bets include things like futures, propositions, and other exotics that aren't typically on the radar screen of most bettors. But these hidden gems do provide some wonderful wagering opportunities and chances to profit.
