Is there a Super Bowl?
Filled with $4MM, it better be!
I think the Eagles should win pretty easily.
I’m a Giants fan, and I have the two SB wins against Belichick and Brady to fall back on, so I don’t regard the Pats as unbeatable.
I think the Eagles have the right type of defense to contain Brady and the right type of offense to attack the Pats defense.
Eagles 27, Pats 17. Check back with me tomorrow.
Not quibbling, but the net profit would be around $700,000.00 after taxes. If Gov. Jerry Brown had his way, the net profit would be about $4.25.
Looking for the math geniuses at free republic.
Thee bet 1 dollar win 155 dollars.
bet 1,000,000 win 155,000,000.
Note to bettors: Bellichek cheats, and the League really doesn’t care.

Belief in the underdog?
More likely that four people know the fix is in for the Eagles.
Or maybe I’m just too cynical. We’ll see.
Im ambivalent on either team since Im in L.A. but I think its a fools errand to bet against the percentages.
Patriots 24 Eagles 20

I don’t think so:
That seems right. You get the $1 mill back plus the $1.5 mill win amount.
Risk $100, take home $255.
Maybe. And maybe theyre just spending some crazy surplus Trump money! :-D
