Looking for a few opinions especially from some of the well respected handicappers on this board before I place this wager.

Super Bowl 2 team parlay $840 risked to win $3008

Ravens Money Line +140

Under 47.5 for the game

I welcome any comments and insight and best of luck to all this coming Sunday.

840 is a random amount...

I understand what you are saying on the $840 risked the reason I went with that on a two team parlay it pays $3008 so basically a even 3k.

 I have another $1000 or so I will be using on game props. BOL to you

+140 is terrible value. You are getting ripped off. You are losing on that bet even if you win.

Appreciate it BigNiner so you feel I should take +3.5 if I go Ravens and I know you are a niners fan and would most likely feel I shoula lay the -3.5 can you elaborate why it is terrible value other than you feel the 49ers will win. Thanks in advance as I have not locked in anything as of yet just wanting opinions before I do.

BOL to you and your team the 49ers are tough as hell but I just feel the Ravens are destiny's darling this year with the two big road wins kind like the Giants last season.

It's terrible to parlay anything, let alone that amount. I would try and get better odds, but the odds don't matter when the final whistle blows, just the score.

The guy up above is simply telling you that +140 is a bad price when you can get +160 at a book like 5Dimes, that would be 15% more on your payout.

I like the under, not a lot of value (understatement) in the parlay, BOL

GQStatus I agree I think I may just go that route instead of parlaying the over/under. BOL
