Futures Betting: Know When to Hold'em Know When to Fold'em

Futures Betting: Know When to Hold'em Know When to Fold'em

NFL Early Futures: Packers & Colts check out early

Bolstered by our protiable Super Bowl XLIX futures bets, we jumped into the Super Bowl 50 futures pond the Monday after NFL 2015 Championship Sunday. While it may have been a little hasty - we selected Green Bay and Indianapolis as our 2016 Super Bowl Sunday participants. Key injuries to both teams hurt us as the Packers lost WR Jordy Nelson in the preseason while Colts QB Andrew Luck was first injured during Week 3 action. Aware of the fact that our horses were losing momentum, we added Carolina and Seattle to our NFL Championship stable on December 8, 2015. That was a solid addition as a Panthers win will earn us an 800-unit return on this once faltering futures investment. While that return would be sweet - the downside has us losing 1000-units if Denver pulls off the upset.

Suppress the need for Greed - Back the Broncos to guarantee a profit 

We say “pulls off the upset” because the Cats have been tagged as -6 point chalk, at many online sportsbooks, while the Broncos are pups with a +210 money line price at the wagering website. While we still believe Carolina will cruise past Denver – the 1000 units at risk is a pretty big matzo ball hanging out there. Being as such, and because we can’t resist free money, we are going to back the Broncos with a 550 unit wager with the money line posted at BetOnline. With this “hedge” bet, we earn 250 units if the Cats win and 155 units if the Broncos crank Cam Newton & Crew. If you are following our Be A Better Bettor mantra, as well as this futures thread, we suggest you should do the same. Remember, the original 1000 unit investment is back in the bankroll with this backup bet. Stay tuned for additional Super Bowl 50 wagers here at BABB in the coming days. Getting excited here!
