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.

We won with Boston last night as it tagged Chris Sale for seven runs on 12 hits in just five innings which snapped a three-game skid and avoided the four-game sweep to the White Sox. The Red Sox are still two games under .500 at home and they send Eduardo Rodriguez to the hill who has been pretty inconsistent this season. He is coming off a quality outing against Detroit last time out but he still brings in a 5.35 ERA at home. Additionally, the Red Sox are 1-4 in his last five starts following a quality outing in his last start. The Rays have won 12 of their last 14 games against left-handed starters and turn the ball over to Erasmus Ramirez. He looks to bounce back from a poor outing against Baltimore which came after nine straight starts where he allowed two runs or less, eight of which he allowed just one run or no runs. The Rays have won his last six road starts and I expect that perfect run to continue here. Play (917) Tampa Bay Rays
