Super Bowl Odds X Factor– Bush the biggest x-factor
The Super Bowl odds x factor betting are all about the players who can unexpectedly have a big impact. We know about Peyton Manning and we know about Drew Brees, but who is ready to have a big game and give his team that unanticipated boost. Now that the Super Bowl odds are up, let’s take a look at some potential x-factors:
Super Bowl odds x factors: Bush could have a big impact
|Colts rookie Collie could be a big factor|
|Bush has to play a big role for Saints to win|
|Sharper a key in the Saints secondary|
Super Bowl Odds X Factor: Colts Offense
The Colts offense has plenty of brand names: Pro Bowlers Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne and Dallas Clark, and even Pierre Garcon is no longer an unknown commodity.
For the Colts offense, a nice sleeper is rookie wideout Austin Collie. He has had a few big games this year and don’t be surprised if he has another one in the Super Bowl.
Collie has 11 catches for 175 yards and two touchdowns in the playoffs and now has nine touchdown grabs on the year. Online betting cappers should note that he seems to find the end zone often when Manning gets him the ball.
If he has a big game, the Colts offense will be impossible to stop.
Edge: Austin Collie
Super Bowl Odds X Factor: Colts Defense
The biggest playmaker on the Colts defense of late has been linebacker Clint Session. He doesn’t get a ton of credit for his contribution but he is an up-and-coming playmaker in the NFL.
In just his third year in the NFL, Session finished with 102 tackles (five for loss), half a sack, two interceptions, a touchdown, a forced fumble and five passes defensed. He’ll be an important factor either covering Reggie Bush out of the backfield, rushing Brees or cutting off Pierre Thomas’ running lanes. He’ll be a key to this game.
Edge: Client Session
Super Bowl Odds X Factor: Saints Offense
The sportsbook odds makers are not expecting it, but they know what he is capable of. Running back Reggie Bush could potentially be the most explosive player on the field on Super Bowl Sunday, pretty much as he is every Sunday, but it’s on him to be a factor.
We saw what he’s capable in the divisional round when he put up 200+ total yards on the Arizona Cardinals. We also saw what he can do when he busted a simple third-down pass for 30 yards in the Championship game.Bush can be a factor carrying the ball, he can be a factor receiving the ball and he can be a factor returning the ball. He is the only player in this contest that can impact both special teams and offense. A huge game from him would go a long way in the Saints quest for their first franchise Super Bowl.
Edge: Reggie Bush
Super Bowl Odds X Factor: Saints Defense
For the Saints, their key player in the secondary is obvious Darren Sharper. While the Saints don’t have a shutdown corner, they definitely have a watchdog and it’s the Pro Bowl veteran.
Sharper finished the year with nine interceptions, which tied him for the NFL lead. This will be a passing affair and even one interception could change the momentum of this contest.
Picking off Manning is no easy feat but sports betting cappers know that both players will be conscious of each other on Super Bowl Sunday.
Pick: Darren Sharper
