I am, of course. If you're interested in betting the Niners, you can see my write-up on the previous page of this thread, about taking Kaepernick to win MVP, instead of betting the Niners straight up.
I'm not playing the spread, because I don't bet for, or against my favorite teams (Niners, anything University of Kentucky.)
As for the O/U, I think it's about right. Gun to my head, I probably play the 1st half UNDER, and then maybe make a 2nd half bet based on what went down in the first.
I like to play a lot of prop bets for the SuperBowl. As is the case every year, if you bet every "no" and "under" on every prop bet that allows it, you will come out ahead. Don't know why, but the public loves to bet the "yes" and "over" in prop bets.
I'm on Joe Flacco longest completion UNDER 40.5 (even), LaMichael James to score a TD (+275), Vernon Davis OVER 3.5 receptions (-145), and the Ravens to kick the games longest FG (-150).
