A Needle in a Hay Stack: Uncovering the Best Super Bowl XLIX Prop Options

A Needle in a Hay Stack: Uncovering the Best Super Bowl XLIX Prop Options
When it comes to Super Bowl Sunday – the more things change – the more they stay the same. Prop wagering on the NFL Championship game is a classic example as the list grows every year but staple wagers remain. While perusing the 100’s of tantalizing prop options at SportsInteraction can leave your head spinning, with this article we turn to a trusted standard we can count on during the Patriots vs Seahawks Super Bowl XLIX clash on February 1, 2015.

Will the pivots stay clean during Super Bowl XLIX?

As was the case this time last year, the total quarterback sacks number is 4.5 at SportsInteraction. We love this prop bet as it can be easily researched and there are plenty of factors that point to the winning side. New England recorded 40 sacks during the regular season, while yielding just 26 to the opposition, but they have zero sacks in their two playoff games and Brady has hit the turf three times in those contests. Seattle got to the QB 37 times but Russell Wilson was sacked 42 times during the Hawks first 16 games. More alarming, after going down twice against Carolina in the Divisional Playoffs, Wilson was tagged with five sacks vs Green Bay in the NFC Championship game. With the stakes so incredibly high – expect both teams to place a high level of importance on protecting their pivot at University of Phoenix Stadium on Super Bowl Sunday.

NFL Championship Game QB Sacks: History and the Intangibles

First on the history table is the fact Wilson made solid decisions during Super Bowl XLVIII and went without a sack while the Seattle defense buried Peyton Manning behind the line just once. Being as Wilson was decked five times two weeks ago, it’s a sure bet that the offensive line has been working on their protection schemes. You can also bet that the Seahawks coaching staff is pounding home the importance of safely getting rid of the ball to avoid losing precious yards. Brady is a wily Super Bowl veteran who understands the importance of staying clean. The Patriots offense is structured around fast play and quick passing strikes - they rarely beat themselves. The major intangible is the Hawks knowing they need to get to Brady and rough him up some to deflate his game. Unlike the Midnight Ride of Paul Revere - the Patriots already know the Hawks are coming. Super Bowl XLIX Sacks Prediction: Wager 300 units on the UNDER price posted at SportsInteraction.
