Legal Pot States of Colorado and Washington Prepare for Super “Bowl”

Our seasoned NFL handicapping crew is still hunkered down in their war room bunker as they pour over the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks Super Bowl XLVIII match-up. As such, we thought we would give our trusty intern a shot at discussing a Super Bowl prop wagering option currently posted on the big board. Although he might be as high as some of the good “GREEN” folks in Washington and Colorado State, we said “have it” when his prop conversation choice featured Peyton Manning vs Robert Wilson.

So let’s get to the point, let’s roll another joint….

With Super Bowl XLVIII being a battle of the only two US States that legally allow personal pot use, and because I have heard them about twenty times this week, I can’t get those Tom Petty lyrics out of my head. Whether yours truly, a humble intern who fetches donuts and stuff for the CSB Crew, is high or not is for me to know and for the boss to find out. While I understand that comparing Peyton Manning to Russell Wilson is akin to rating a Cadillac versus a Caravan, there are several Super Bowl prop betting options that tie the two together. The QB comparison begins with bookmakers at the William Hill sportsbook projecting that a starting pivot will be going to Disneyland.

Peyton Manning vs Russell Wilson: Super Bowl XLVIII MVP Battle

William Hill bookmakers figure that one of the starting quarterbacks is going to win the Super Bowl MVP award as Manning is top chalk at EVEN money while Wilson is a distant second with a +350 money line price. If you agree, then you have to back the QB from the team you believe is going to win this bowl battle. I like Denver but, I’m not sure either pivot will be the MVP. I’m going out on a few limbs with small “Sawbuck” bets to back RB Knowshon Moreno (+3330) WR Eric Decker (+4000) and PK Matt Prater (+20000). Mamma needs to fill her bowl baby!
