Pro Tips for Score Guessing

– Wait until after this Sunday’s Conference Championships (Jan. 20, 2019), when it is down to 2 teams to make your guess.
– Create an account at Intertops Sportsbook and check the over/under. That amount is what the pro bookies think will be the estimate of total points!

Look at the screenshot below from Intertops. They have the current over/under for the Rams vs. Saints game at 56.5 and Patriots vs. Chiefs at 55.5 – Granted, Vegas isn’t always right. In fact, they can be way, way off. But if you don’t have a clue, then going with a number close to the over/under at a sportsbook will at least be an educated guess.

Go Rams! I put $10 on the Rams at the beginning of the season to win the Super Bowl. If they do, I’ll win $110 for my small wager. If the Bears hadn’t got bumped in the first round and played to a Super Bowl win, I would have won over $1000. Drat! Ahh well… gotta go with the horse that’s still in the race, I suppose.
