Super Bowl Sunday Means Super Bowl Props

The Super Bowl reminds me of my grandfather. We loved betting on the Super Bowl props. We would put $10 on 10 we thought we could win and would watch the games together. It just makes watching more fun. My grandfather taught me how to gamble and while some might think that is a bad thing, it is one of my fondest memories. He taught me how to play cards and then would get me in the game with all his friends and I would take all their money. When I was 13 years old, I told people when I grow up I wanted to become a bookie. My grandfather is a lot of the reason I am the person I am today and I like who I am.

My grandfather passed away in 2005. To be honest, things have not been the same since. I miss him very much. I still carry on the props tradition and would like to share with you my picks for today.

My first pick of course was to take my Steelers +3. I love taking the Steelers as an underdog because they usually cover, if not win the game. I am counting on them to win it outright today.

Now for the props...we always do the coin toss. This year I am going to go with tails.

My next prop just looked so obvious to me. Usually that is a bad sign but I am going to go ahead and go with it. I have taken the over for longest field goal of 43.5 yards. How many games have there been at least 45 yard field goals? Surely one of these kickers can hit one in an indoor stadium.

Last but not least...Heath Miller. I love this guy and this one jumped out at me. I have taken Heath Miller to go over 3.5 receptions today.

Enjoy the game today and win some money in the process.
