    Who does everyone like in the Super Bowl tomorrow night?

    I have been in a year long league where you pick 4 game against the spread each week including the playoffs. 182 entries at $100 a pop. Iím leading by 2 points and SB is worth 4 points...winner wins 9K, second wins 4.5K and so on... Iím thinking of going Eagles plus the 4.5 and hedging 1K on the Pats but would love to hear what everyone is thinking.

    for me ... its too much at stake to provide you with my opinion. If I were wrong Id feel like poop. Best to you. With that being said. Id take Brady and Belichick .... -4.5.

    Troy Brown ... smart former patriot said they matchup better with the secondary with Philly than they did against the Jags. Brady's focus and SB Experience is so far ahead of Foles is not comparable. The SB is a different animal than the Conference Finals. The chance of it affecting Foles and the Doug Peterson poorly is another thing that could disrupt the Eagles game plan.
    Listen these just my opinions .... Brady is so laser focused ... I would not bet against the GOAT ... The Legit Goat. 4.5 is a lot of points but my gut is that the Pats will win by 9+ points.

    I think Foles will come down to earth and is very beatable

    All good points. I just donít think the Pats are as strong a team as their previous super bowl teams have been. I could easily see them being down late in the 4Q and Brady leading the comeback drive as usual to win by 3-4 points. Iím all over the place on this one though. Not many opportunities to win 9K on a game with only 100 on the line. 😬

    The good news is that worst I can finish is 6th which is ~$250....Iím thinking the $1K hedge is a no brainer

    I agree with that strategy .... why not guarantee yourself at least 2,500 ?? Hedge a bit more .... win - win

    Iíve tossed the idea around but I really wanna win 8K if I hit. I will also get everyone elseís pick before game time to see how far I can possibly drop. 2nd pays 4500. 3rd - 2250 and so on until the money is gone.

    That’s tough, good luck. I’m still pretty surprised with the Eagles money that’s come in all week.
