Against the Spread (Superbowl 43 Edition)

DeGags January 30, 2009 5


Here it is, the biggest event in Pro-Football, The Super Bowl

So why no excitement? I think this game will be better than most people anticipate. Pittsburgh has a talented defense, and Arizona has an equally talented offense. Make no mistake, the Cardinals are no Cinderella team, just because The Cinderella Man is at QB. I think this game will be close, but I think the Steelers come out on top. I also think this will be a low scoring contest. Both teams are here in the Super Bowl, and as always defense will be the key. I say Pittsburgh wins by 4. So here’s what I have…. 1 Unit on Arizona +7 over Pittsburgh ATS, 5 Units on Pittsburgh over Arizona (-250), and 4 units on the Under 46.5.

But before the big game, is a big fight….

We have Herman Ngoudjo -170 vs. Juan Urango +200 for the IBF Junior Welterweight Belt. Juan Uragngo lost a lop-sided fight to Ricky Hatton 2 years ago this very month. Since then Urango has proven himself a worthy contender once again. Ngoudjo is a Montreal resident, who’s never lost a fight in his hometown, the venue tonight.

That streak is about to end. Urango has a power knockout punch that when delivered will go unanswered by the Cambodian boxer from Quebec. Since losing the belt to Hatton, Urango has had 5 knockouts in the early rounds, in five fights. The explosive power of his left hook is devastating to fighters in this heavily talented weight class. I like Urango here for 2.5 units, but may easily increase that to 5 by fight time. It depends on the amount of fire I see in his eyes as he enters the ring. You can always tell who the winner of the fight will be before the fight begins. He’s the guy who has hate written all over his face. 2.5 Units, Urango +200 over Ngoudjo in under 8 rounds.

Record: 79-55 (+43.1 units)

    “I think this game will be close, but I think the Steelers come out on top… I say Pittsburgh wins by 4.” Are you fuckin’ kiddin me? You took Ari with the points, Pitt straight up and even called the margin by which they wil win. So what the fuck happened with the under? How the fuck do you knoe the final winningmargin, but not the point total. Ha ha. Seriously, SCP ought to do a an article on you. You’re the real sports story. Fucking DeGags!!
