Yes!! Epic yes!! I’m either a sucker or have found a gorgeous opportunity to pacify the infectious urge for Superbowl prop betting.
Manning MVP -110
$110 / $100
Is this not basically Colts ML -110? In Superbowl XLI, Manning won the MVP despite an underwhelming performance (25-38 247 1TD 1INT), and teammates Domonic Rhodes and Bob Sanders having a valid case to merit discussion. Manning is about to sign the richest contract in NFL history, the more acclaim, the more awards he receives, the better the NFL looks at justifying such a huge contract.
At many books, Manning MVP odds are worse than the odds on the Colts to win the game. As we pointed out before, if you happened to bet the MVP prop at worse odds than the Colts moneyline, please kill yourself.

These odds are from four different prominent sportsbooks. A picture(s) says a thousand words.
Knowledge is power. The more information you have about the market you are investing in, the lower your opportunity cost, and the higher the rewards. Imagine being a simple minded degenerate that doesn’t understand the offshore industry. You may have just lost $100 or more just on the ‘vig’ due to ignorance.
If you put down -250 on Peyton for MVP, and the Colts ML is -200, you need to kill yourself. You’re operating on a different spectrum of
intelligence stupidity, where thought is impervious to reason. Actually would probably be classified as criminally insane.
Fuckin’ sheep. Got a another text message from a guy who just said he put $200 on Manning to win MVP at -200. Genius
Extracted this from SBRForum.com, a little exchange with a rep from Bookmaker.com, a prominent wise-guy offshore online sportsbook:
Loshak: Haha, yeah. So what’s the limit for the sides?
BookMaker: We guarantee $100,000.
Loshak: But you’ll take more. What’s the biggest bet you’ve taken so far?
BookMaker: $500,000, on New Orleans.
Loshak: Wow, half a mil on the Saints. So what’s been the split on the action so far? What’s the split been between the two teams and between the public and sharps?
BookMaker: It’s about 2-to-1 with both number of bets and money, in favor of Indianapolis.
Loshak: So that’s the public favoring the Colts? Who have the sharps been betting so far?
BookMaker: Well, early it was the Colts, but until game day you really don’t know.
That’s a lot of fuckin’ money. Half a million dollars on an historically dreadful franchise against Peyton Manning. I would like to know what that guy does for a living, and if I can get a slice of that pie.
I haven’t really spoken extensively about the Super Bowl. I like to treat it like any other game, and not try to force the issue just because it is the biggest event of the year. Being afflicted with mild degeneracy syndrome, however, I might fancy myself to a few prop bets. But as of yet I have no lean on the side or total. I’ll probably be betting some obscure Southland Conference college basketball game. The bookies get somewhat lethargic during Super Bowl week. The volume of bets are heading towards the big game in super overdrive, and the linesmakers have to be ultra-aware of any abnormalities in betting tendencies, therefore sacrificing the normal amount of devotion to other sports in proportion. This is from my experience over the last few years anyway.
Other MSM outlets and avenues are more than sufficient to get your Super Bowl fix.
