Jan/25/2009 all week long will be presenting to its readers the very best in betting on the 2009 Super Bowl, and that means tons of hot props. asks:  Will the first score of the game be a touchdown or a field goal?  The chances of a field goal happening, especially when we consider Pittsburgh's stingy defense, is quite good actually, yet the payout is so much better than a touchdown.  The field goal or safety pays $155 for every $100 bet compared to the risk involved with the touchdown, requiring a $185 bet to win $100.

The team to kickoff first is not a 50/50 bet like one might be led to believe.  Instead we have the oddsmakers assigning a line of -170 to the Pittsburgh Steelers.   Arizona would pay out $140 for every $100 bet at

One can bet the Over/Under for each minute segment beginning with "a score in the first 5 ½ minutes of the game" which pays out $155 for every $100 bet if it happens; within 6 ½ pays out around even odds; and no score in the first 8 ½ minutes pays $215 for every $100 bet. 

With just one week until the Super Bowl, the spread was now Steelers -6 ½.

Needless-to-say, these are just a small number of 2009 Super Bowl betting props.  Watch all week long for the latest props being offered.  What an exciting week this will be for those of us here at
