:chuckle: Fair enough, though I wouldn't have bet on either game and haven't had time to really number crunch. Just having fun with it. . . I'd say Gronk was the difference between the more likely Pats victory and what we saw. That and Brady wasn't as sharp early. I think once he warmed up he stopped thinking about the hand. And, to be fair, the Jags played a great game until late. Better than I thought they would.50% is better than ziltz.
Now I hope Foles can repeat his performance and make this one a Super Bowl worth watching.
When you look at the following point spread you can understand that Atlanta is the favorite to win the game:
Atlanta At Philadelphia +3
If you take the points or you like the points that means that at the end of the game you can add three points to Philadelphia's score and if that total is more than Atlanta's score then you win the bet.
So, when there's a + after a team's name, followed by points, then that means that team is the underdog. So when there's a - after a team's name, and points, then that's the favorite. So NE was favored to win, and Minnesota was favored to win.OK Sports Fans!
At New England -7.5 Jacksonville
Minnesota -3 At Philadelphia
I take Jacksonsville and the points. The Patriot's luck is going to finally end.
And I take the Vikes and give the three points! The Eagles ain't got a chance!
I predict NE loses 38-7, like Minnesota did. Philly looked dominant. They torched the best defense in the NFL this year, and Foles is putting up yards, points, and a lack of picks, like they're all going out of style.I hope Foles can repeat his performance and make this one a Super Bowl worth watching.

When you say you "take...the points," that means you're taking the 7.5 points and adding it to Jacksonville's final score, so you would have won that bet, because the Jaguars (did anyone else hear Romo call them the "jag-wires?" :chuckle scored 4 less than NE, so adding the 7.5 put's their final score 3.5 points over NE's actual score. I think I got that right?
And Minnesota was the favorite, so if you take the Eagles, then you add the 3 points to 38, and it becomes 41, which is higher than the Vikes' 7, so that was the winning bet on that game, right?
