NFL (American Football)


#641

A reminder this is on this Thursday night stateside

So should be online , hopefully , Friday .

NFL brains, where should my annual $50 dollar bet go for this Super Bowl?

Thinking Blount anytime Philly won $25

Phily Defensive TD: $20

Gronk first TD: $5

Any thoughts?


#643

For me you want to back the Pats ones (you seem to fancy Philly)…
Remember, its Brady v Foles…

  • Foles to throw an INT - 11/10
  • Pats to beat the spread (-4.5) - 20/21 (they have never won one by more than 5 AFAIK).
  • Brady MVP - 8/13

Maybe a treble…


#644

Bookies won’t let you treble them - they’re seen as connected bets.


#645

€5 on Pats Win, BTTS 20+ points, J. White & A. Jeffrey both to score TDs. 14-1

€5 on Pats win, 49+ Total Points, J. Ajayi & D. Amendola both to score TDs. 16-1

€5 on Eagles win, Foles 300+ yards passing, A. Jeffrey & Gronk both to score TDs 40-1


#646

Sly getting in on the act :laughing:


#647

The whole Famn Damily are hooked to the heights for next Sunday. I’d love to be over in Philly. Alas, I am working next Sunday night! Hope to hook in as often as I can. #FlyEaglesFly


#648

That’s a pity.

I always worked the night of the SB the way my shifts fell too. This actually the first year I’m off properly and more importantly the next day. Having a few in the house for it. I’m on the opposite team to you though, hoping for a great game either way.


#649

My two bets are:
Eagles to win first quarter - 8/5. Pats have not scored a point in the first quarter of their last 6 Super Bowl appearances

Foles to throw over 245 yards - Evens. Pats defence give up big yardage but not points. They’ll be happy to let Foles launch bombs down the field but nail him in the red zone.


#650

Interesting rumours coming out that Belichiek is either retiring or leaving the Patriots regardless of the result on Sunday .


#651

A. Jeffrey, D. Lewis and D. Amendola all to score TDs. 25-1


#652

Well guys , who’s staying up tonight . Will be the first super bowl I’ll have seen live . No Superbowl party or watching it in the pub . The Deputy Mayor I believe in Glasnevin always shows it .
Where ye watching it tonight .


#653

I started out having two friends over for a quiet drink to watch it. It escalated and now there’s 13 coming to mine tonight so am in the middle of trying to get the house sorted. Don’t why I do this to myself :laughing:
Living for the game now, it’s a great match up


#654

Jayus , good luck with that & enjoy :laughing:

On a separate note there was Brady winning the MVP for the season . And Randy Moss & TO been inducted in the HOF

Prediction - Eagles 27 Pats 26. Gostkowski missed EP the difference.
