PostSubject: A bettor's review of all 50 Super Bowls   Sat Feb 06, 2016 11:45 am

Interesting (at least to a compulsive gambler like me ) review of point spreads and over/under total points for the Super Bowls

http://espn.go.com/chalk/story/_/id/14720475/nfl-looking-back-point-spread-winners-all-50-super-bowls

Steelers have been favored in 6 out of their 8 Super Bowls (underdogs getting 13 &1/2 against Cowboys in XXX and 2 &1/2 against Packers in XLV)  and 5-3 against the spread (did not cover against Dallas in X, Cardinals in XLIII and Packers in XLV)

One example of how much the game has changed since the league first started to change the rules in the late 70s to encourage more passing is 70s over/unders being in the low to mid-30 points range whereas for the past 10 years that total has been in the mid-40s to mid-50s range
