Revisiting the Bottlegate 2015 Super Bowl Betting Guide: Breakdown & Recap

Link to the betting guide that was posted yesterday

We came. We saw. We conquered. If you took any of the advice from yesterday’s post there’s a chance you’ve probably already quit your job and/or are on your way to an all inclusive resort in the Bahama paid for by all your winnings from yesterday.

Let’s look at the tape:

Patriots (-2) & OVER/UNDER 47.5

Patriots won by 4 and the game total was 52

Easy money.

WIN and WIN

 

First player to score a touchdown

The pick: Marshawn Lynch, Julian Edelman, Shane Vereen

Like I said in the post, I’ve NEVER gotten one of these right. Brandon LaFell was +1,400 so hopefully some of you hit on that.

LOSS

 

OVER/UNDER National Anthem Length

The pick: Over 2 minutes and 1 second

Never a doubt. You know Idina was going to bring the flair and dramatics to the biggest sporting event in the world. Only a sucker would’ve bet the under.

It seems people had some insider info on the anthem length because it was taken off the board on some sites

WIN

Coin Toss

Pick: Tails

Too easy. Tails never fails.

WIN

Which coach will be mentioned first after kickoff & which coach will be shown first after kickoff?

Pick: Belichick for both.

This Super Bowl was all about Bill and the Patriots

WIN and WIN

Bill Belichick’s hoodie: Sleeves or no sleeves?

Pick: Sleeves

Like I said, Belichick knew about this prop bet and knew cut off sleeves were the favorite. He 100% wore sleeves just to spite everyone.

WIN

Will Uptown Funk be used in a commercial?

Pick Yes +500

Bet of the day comes through.

WIN

How many viewers will the game have?

Pick: Over 113 million

There were 114.4 people that tuned in.

WIN

Katy Perry’s first song

Pick: Wide Awake

Really really messed this one up. Tried going for it all with the 12/1 odds with Wide Awake and not just going with the easy 3/2 odds with Roar. It’s called gambling for a reason. Losers take the safe route. Pretty sure she didn’t even sing Wide Awake.

LOSS

Will Katy Perry show cleavage?

Pick: Yes

Was honestly hoping for more but this was easy enough. When you’re blessed with the beautiful gifts that Katy is blessed with you make sure the entire country gets an eyeful.

Left shark killed it.

WIN

Katy Perry’s hair color

Pick: Purple

Tried to out think myself again and I did. I said it would either be purple or black/brown and it ended up being black.

LOSS

A commercial will feature under-inflated footballs

Pick: Yes +1,000

Said that this probably wouldn’t happen and alas, it didn’t. The +1,000 was too juicy to pass up though

LOSS

Gatorade bath color

Pick: Red

I picked red not really thinking it would be red since yellow mostly wins these all the time. Surprise surprise it ended up being blue.

LOSS

Who will the MVP thank first?

Pick: Teammates

Good ol Tommy Touchdown thanking the men around him. What a guy.

WIN

Final Count 11 wins and 5 losses with most of the losses being on longshots that you wouldn’t put any significant money on anyway. Hopefully you guys took the advice and won some cash.

And with that cash that you won, you should visit our store and score some t-shirts
