Horse Racing: 2015 Kentucky Derby Odds

The Rick Violette trained Upstart was the big mover this week in early Kentucky Derby betting odds after winning last Saturday’s $400,000 Holy Bull (G2) at Gulfstream Park.

Why Patriots Will Win Super Bowl XLIX

There has been a whirlwind of media coverage surrounding the New England Patriots since they crushed the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in the AFC Championship Game due to the Deflategate controversy.

It’s hard to argue that under-inflated balls impacted that final result against the Colts because the game was so lopsided, but it may actually end up keeping the three-time Super Bowl champion Patriots from over-inflating their egos heading into the big game.


Why Seahawks Will Win Super Bowl XLIX

Last year, the underdog Seattle Seahawks proved that defense wins championships in capturing the franchise’s first Super Bowl title in a 43-8 rout over the Denver Broncos, who came into the big game touting the NFL’s most prolific offense ever.

Seattle’s defense was the best in the league yet again this season and should pose some serious problems for a New England Patriots team that lost the Super Bowl in this same venue seven years ago.

Tom Brady Super Bowl XLIX Prop Betting

Tom Brady may not be very popular outside of Massachusetts right now due to the whole Deflategate scandal. But the New England Patriots quarterback could help bettors make a profit on the 2015 Super Bowl due to a number of props featuring him at online sportsbook Bovada.

Brady is already a two-time Super Bowl MVP and the 7/4 favorite at the sportsbook to tie former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Joe Montana for the most in NFL history with three.


Super Bowl Gatorade Shower Prop Odds

It reportedly started spontaneously. Following a 37-13 win over Washington midway through the 1984 NFL season, New York Giants DT Jim Burt, unhappy with his reduced playing time and harsh treatment in practice, exacted his revenge on Giants coach Bill Parcells by dumping a cooler of Gatorade on him, and the Gatorade shower was born.

The Giants would go on to popularize the shower, dousing Parcells 17 times during the 1986 NFL season en route to their Super Bowl 21 win, spawning a phenomenon that extends today to amateur, collegiate and professional sports around the world.
