Super Bowl Intangibles Betting – Experience Is The Key
Super Bowl intangibles betting is a very crucial part to the big game. While most people expect the Super Bowl line to play out as it looks on paper, the reality is that intangibles factor into every single football game. The Super Bowl will be no different as coach, experience, the stadium, the weather and the stars will impact this game. Here is a preview of the Super Bowl intangibles:
Super Bowl Intangibles Betting: Experience will be the biggest factor
|Colts coaching staff has won a Super Bowl together|
|Experience advantage lies with Colts|
|Stadium, weather will not be a factor|
Super Bowl Intangibles Betting: Coaching
Online betting cappers respect both head coaches Jim Caldwell and Sean Payton but everyone is aware that this will be their first time head coaching a Super Bowl team. But when you do the math, the Colts coaching staff as a team is very similar to the one who coached the Colts to the Super Bowl back in 2006. Caldwell was part of that staff and has not only coached in the Super Bowl, he’s coached in a number of playoff games with the franchise.
Payton is still one of the better coaches around and he can match wits very well with anyone, but he hasn’t been on this stage. That’s the only area where you can knock him.
Super Bowl Intangibles Betting: Experience
Just like the Colts have the edge in experience on the sidelines, they also have it on the field. The Colts have a lot of consistency between this roster and the one that won a championship just a few years back.
The Saints team has a similar roster to the one that went to the NFC Championship Game in 2006 but that stage isn’t as big as the Super Bowl. Sports betting cappers can’t discount the fact that nerves may play somewhat of a factor because of how grandiose the stage is.
Super Bowl Intangibles Betting: Stadium
In the Super Bowl, we’ll have two teams that normally play indoors that will head to Miami and play in an outdoor stadium. Both teams played in Miami this year and both teams had crazy comebacks on the Miami Dolphins.
Overall, the Saints were 4-1 in games played on a grass field this year while the Colts were 5-0. The Colts have won 16 of their last 20 on a grass.
Overall, sportsbook odds makers know that this doesn’t mean a whole lot. Both teams would rather be indoors but probably won’t be affected too much by the grass.
Super Bowl Intangibles Betting: How Will The Stars Perform?
Everyone knows that this is one of the toughest questions to answer. We’ve seen players like Dan Marino, and teams like the Buffalo Bills of the 90’s and the Patriots of ’07 choke away perfectly well in the big game, so it’s always hard to gauge how the stars will perform.
If the NFC Championship Game is a telling sign, the Saints might be a little concerned about Drew Brees. Brees completed just 17 passes in the Championship Game, which was his fewest since Week 3 this year. He also finished with just 197 passing yards on the day. He’ll probably bounce back but that does set up a red flag.
Meanwhile, Manning has been on this big stage before. He used to struggle in Championship Games himself but he now appears to be past that. The edge again has to go to the experienced Colts who have been there.
