    Colts favored by 7.

    The over is 48.5.

    I'd have to take the Bears - there's a lot of value in that line, IMO.
    And the over.

    I agree -- would have loved the Bears at +8. Just like 'em at +7.

    I got the money down now, though, because I think if the line moves anywhere, it'll move the wrong direction. Once the euphoria of the Colts comeback fades, the Bears will get some steam. I don't see it being a two-week Colts Fest.

    Definitely like getting 7 for the Bears.

    I'll take that action. The Bears' defense is going to rattle Peyton early.

    I'd lean toward under. The o/u is always slightly inflated for the Super Bowl (the public loves rooting for points), and I think the matchups here lean toward under. I'd wait closer to game time and see if the line hits 49.

    As of last night, heads was a 6-5 favorite to win the coin toss.

    I wish I was kidding.

    And that's when I would put in on the Colts and the over here. Just don't like the Bears defense these days.
     
  9. The same defense that held the NFC's top offense to just 14 points?
     
  10. Yeah, no way I'm taking the Colts or the over.

    Yeah, but you can't afford to lose since you're already starving.

    The AFC's top three or four offenses are different cats than the NFC's best offense.
