    I've never made a prop bet (and also never bet on football) and would like to - can someone explain a good strategy to take this year for one or more of the prop bets and also give a basic explanation of what the bets would actually mean if i win (i.e. what the payoff would be from the #s listed by each bet)? Hopefully someone can just guide me to a site that would dumb it down for me!

    the numbers such as -115, +135 etc are all " to win $100"

    so if you see a minus sign that is how much you have to bet to win $100
    such as -115 you would have to risk 115 to make a profit of 100


    a plus number such as + 135 is how much you profit for a wager of 100
    so a 100 bet on a +135 bet would be a profit of 135

    if you only want to bet $10 just divide by 10

    -115 = risk 11.50 to win 10
    + 135 = risk 10 to win 13.50 etc

    you can bet any amount you want with the minimum bet being around $5 or $10

    Yay - reading material for the plane! Thanks to you both!

    Now one more question - what is the advantage to betting more than you could win (betting on a negative)?

    If you're betting on a negative, that's because it's more likely to happen. That's how the casino slants the bets -- the more likely it is to happen, the more you have to pay to get the same return.

    If you're looking to bet on the superbowl, the number one prop bet you want to look at is the 'over-under.' By far the most common prop bet. You'll see a number, and you try to guess whether the total number of points scored in the game is going to be more or less than that number.

    I love the props. Some years, like this one, I have a better feel for the props than I do for the game lines. Such a Pierce's total carries, love over 6.5.

    I was hoping there was an Aldon Smith sacks prop. I would have definitely bet the over.

    Flacco is a drop back passer which means he is more likely to be sacked.

    Plus, Smith has had a sack drought recently which might have made the line a little lower.
