Super Bowl Prop-A-Palooza, Part 3: The Flacco Edition

How much will Flacco throw?

It's Super Bowl time, and that means three things: an inexorably boring and useless Pro Bowl, tons of horrific media coverage focusing on inane storylines, and enough prop bets to drown you in a frothy sea of mathmatic delight! Through the next two weeks, we'll be selecting a few prop bets at a time, running the numbers and giving you the best recommendations. We'll try to stick to more interesting ones - sorry, coin flip fans - but if you have a specific prop you'd like for us to look at, feel free to email me at and we'll see what we can do.

Hate him or love him - and if you follow our Twitter account, you'd know that I don't exactly love him - Joe Flacco deserves your respect. Even if you ignore his many outlandishly great physical gifts, you still have to pay homage to his knack for winning the road; in fact, he's got six playoff road wins in his career, tying Eli Manning with the most ever.

We're not interested in the editorial narratives though, at least not in this article. No, we're interested in how we can make you so money. Does the sudden surge of respect for Flacco expose some value in prop bets? We shall see - to the mathatorium!
