The Super Bowl at The Super Dome
Last year Super Bowl XLVI was played in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, and Eli Manning and the New York Giants would beat the New England Patriots 21-17 as 3 point underdogs.
This year Super Bowl XLVII is being played at the Super Dome in New Orleans, where the favored San Francisco 49ers take on the Baltimore Ravens. The total is in the 48.5 point range.
Hosting the Super Bowl is big business for the host city as it pulls in anywhere from $200-$500 million to the local economy.
To say the NFL "likes" New Orleans would be an understatement I'd have to say, as the city has hosted the Super Bowl nine times previously.

BURNS FREE NHL 1/17
A SWEET 6-1 MLK Day showing included a pair of NEVER-IN-DOUBT WINNERS in the pros, the Wizards & Warriors. That brings Ben Burns to a RIDICULOUS 16-2 his L18 NBA, a SICK 8-1 his last nine. For 2017, he's an INSANE 22-4 ATS. No surprise there, as Ben's NBA has been M-O-N-E-Y for years and also WON HUGE in 2016.
Both these teams are off high-scoring games and games here have been pretty high-scoring all season. That said, an O/U line of six gives us a lot of room to work with. Keep in mind that the Stars average only 2.5 goals per road game.
When these teams met a little over a month ago, at Dallas, the O/U line was 5.5. (It opened at 5.5u125 and closed at 5.5u15.) The result? A 2-0 final score. Nine of the Stars' last 13 visits to MSG have also fallen below the number.
The Stars, who have seen seven of 11 "non-conference" games stay below the total, will be playing a road game with an O/U line of six for just the second time. The first? A 2-1 final at Nashville. Don't be surprised if this one also proves a little lower-scoring than expected.
Ben Burns was 6-1 on Monday, including a PERFECT 3-0 on the ice. Through the first 16 days of 2017, he's now 62-34 overall, good for 18.8 net units of profit. Over the past few seasons, Burns has delivered more than 57 net winners of pure NHL profit. His latest "Personal Favorite" goes today!
