The Stage Is Set for Super Bowl LI
The 51st Super Bowl is set to get underway in what promises to be a departure from the defensive scenes seen in previous year’s matchups. Both the Falcons and Patriots have in their possession an offensive line up that has the ability and desire to produce some top class attacking football.
Both teams are set to take to the field with the aim of imposing their will on one another as the utilization of their respective quarterbacks expected to feature quite highly in the encounter. Stats from the 2016 – 2017 season seem to tell an interesting tale for the 2 offensive players. New England Patriots’ star Tom Brady has 296.2 passing yards under his belt with the opposing Atlanta Falcons’ Matt Ryan with an edge of 309 passing yards per game.
In fact, it would appear that Matt Ryan has an edge in all departments for the season thus far on the offensive stats platform with 38 passing touch downs against Brady’s 28 and a Passer Rating that sees Matt Ryan edging out the veteran Tom Brady with 117.1 to 112.2.
Experience will play a big factor in this contest, however, and the Atlanta Falcons have relatively young defensive squad that could see the experienced Patriots’ Tom Brady creating some big spaces during this meet up.
How The Punters See It
As is now customary during Super Bowl, the statistical depth and volumes is staggering which can leave even the most confident football fan feeling a little wary when thinking about placing a wager. Luckily the match is not the only focal point for the creative bunch that we punters are. Many side bets exist and can be loads of fun for a side bet. This ranges from the bizarre such as what type of pants will Luke Bryan, U.S National Anthem performer, be wearing, to the politically inspired count prediction of how many times newly elected president Trump’s name will be mentioned by the sports commentators as well as the president’s pick to win will be.
There is a lot in between as well, that seem a bit more related to the actual game itself such as when the first touchdown will occur and by whom, if any field goals will be made and by who.
There is so much potential betting action that punters have no excuse to miss out on this epic match up.
