Patriots -21 over Colts
* First favorite over 20-points since 2007
* 10th favorite over 20-points since 1978
* Four of the 9 prior 20-point favorites involved the 2007 Patriots
* Only 3 franchises have been 20+ point favorites: Patriots, 49ers, Bills
* 20-point favorites 9-0 straight-up
* 20-point favorites 2-7 against the spread
* 20-point favorites have lost 7 straight ATS (not winning since 1992)
* Biggest favorite? 23.5 points (2007 Pats vs. Eagles and 1993 49ers vs. Bengals)
* Biggest favorite to lose a game? Cowboys -17.5 vs. Redskins (1995)
* Favorites of 15 points or more have won 104 out of 110 games
* IF Colts played at Green Bay, Packers would be 25-point favorite
(which would be the biggest spread in NFL history)

Will Colts go 0-16?
NO: $215 wins $100
YES: $100 wins $200
(odds imply 33% chance)

Will Green Bay go 16-0?
NO: $180 to win $100
YES: $100 wins $165
(odds imply 36% chance)

Will Green Bay finish 19-0 (winning Super Bowl undefeated)
NO: $550 wins $100
YES: $100 wins $450
(odds imply 17% chance)

Biggest Conference Championship Favorite of All-Time!
Oregon favored by 32-points over UCLA on Friday
Prior biggest? Texas favored by 25-points over Colorado in 2005
Biggest Bowl Game favorite? Kansas St. favored by 18.5 over Arizona St (2002)
Which means Oregon is the biggest post-season favorite of all-time (Bowl or Championship game)  

BCS Controversy?
LSU projected to be a small favorite (3-points or less) over Alabama.
LSU would be favored by OVER a touchdown in the BCS championship game vs. any other team.

Bad-Luck Browns?
Cleveland Browns have lost 12 coin-flips dating back to last season (odds are 4,095 to 1 against)

NBA Title odds:
$100 wins . . .
1) Heat: +250
2) Lakers: +550
3) Bulls: +650
4) Thunder: +800
5) Mavericks: +900
6) Celtics +1400
7) Knicks: +2000
[all other teams worse than 20 to 1]

Can Sidney Crosby come back to win NHL scoring title?
$100 wins $700 if he does [offered by Cal-Neva sportsbooks]

ah yes, the NBA!

Gotta love it!

I am my own source. It's not a run when you do it over and over again with consistency and a mentality that you've done it before.

In nearly "5" years at pregame, if you COMBINED every SPORT SEASON together, i have turned a strong profit in EVERY SINGLE SPORT EXCEPT BASEBALL. Of all the things i've done here at pregame, this is EASILY what i'm most proud of. That's LONG TERM WINNING.

As always, thanks for that to continue to follow my work. Much, much appreciated
