SCORE POINTS TO WIN … DUH

By Marc Lawrence, PlaybookSports.com — You know the saying: It’s hard to win when you don’t score. That’s especially true in the Super Bowl, where there have been 22 Super Bowl teams who haven’t scored 14 points, and they are 1-21 straight up and ATS. The one exception was in SB 43 when New England edged the L.A. Rams 13-3. In addition, there have been 45 Super Bowls with a turnover advantage, including last year’s game. The team with fewer turnovers is 38-7 straight up and 36-8-1 ATS. During the regular season the 49ers were +10 in net TOs. The Chiefs were -11.

  1. Mahomes is 11-0 in playoff games under a dome, indoors. Bet KC early but… I always rooted for the 49rs ever since I met the Di Bartolo family in Maple Heights, Cleveland, Ohio when they were the second largest mall owners-builders in the USA and they owned racetracks like Thistledowns and the San Francisco football team which it had the best uniforms besides winning with Walsh, Montana , Rice and Clark. Still have a good team, and uniform, but not the Di Bartolo clan or the early mentioned coach and great players with statues in Canton Ohio. Does a bettor-gambler go with the heart or with marginal logic ? If the bet is lost for one reason it should not be for ignoring the numbers with the very best QB going against the Last pick of the draft. I’m rooting for the young kkid and number 23 to do well,, next time but today I’m still leaning for the KC long time coach to retire after winning this Fifty Eighth Super Bowl. It seems to be the IT team, or at least it was until their last game even if Mahomes has not really big QB numbers. Not a bit bet,, Never go against Your Heart, especially with Valentine’s Day a few days away after the game.. 27-22 KC
