    Spike the ball at 2:1 seems like good money, so does QB MVP at 1:2.

    An analysis of Super Bowl squares. Yea, the numbers you thought were good are good, and the numbers you though sucked do suck.

    3/1 for the Ickey Shuffle? Don't tell me the 2010s are the new 1980s.

    I'm not sure if I'd bet on any Saints to be the first player arrested following the Super Bowl. If they win, they'll probably have the run of the place for at least a few months.

    Awesome. Of course, the only way to run a squares board is blind draw.

    No doubt.

    But maybe I can find a sucker for my three squares that have a 1.01% COMBINED chance of winning and sell them at 60% off! I just hope they didn't read this article.
