NFL Prop Shop: Off-the-Wall Super Bowl Edition
With plenty of downtime left before the big game kicks off on February 3rd, let's have a little fun with four off-the-wall, non-game related props currently being offered.
All props and odds are currently available at Sportsinteraction.com.
National anthem - Will Alicia Keys mess up the words: No (-300)
Seriously? After Christina Aguilera fumbled the anthem a couple of years ago in Dallas, there's no chance we'll see a true professional like Alicia Keys botch the anthem in New Orleans. I'm surprised this prop isn't being priced north of -500 to be honest. The price is still steep, but this should be a gimme.
Halftime show - Will Jay-Z make a cameo appearance: Yes (+110)
I don't think there's anyone out there that doesn't see this one coming. With his wife taking the stage, you can bet that Jay-Z will have a hand in the halftime show. Rumors have pushed the price down, allowing us to step in and earn a plus-money return on what I consider a high-percentage play.
Halftime show - What song will Beyonce open with: Crazy In Love (+180)
The choice is simple here. Beyonce goes with her most well-known and well-received song to open the set. We might even be able to kill two birds with one stone, as this would be an ideal spot for a Jay-Z sighting.
Barack's team - Which team will president Barack Obama select to win: Baltimore (+300)
Keep in mind, there are three selections being offered, with fence-sitter being the third option. I'll take a shot with Barack backing his neighbors from Baltimore. The Ravens have paid their dues over the years, and they just seem like the type of hard-working team that the president would support.
Of course, fence-sitter is being priced at -575 for a reason, so tread lightly.

Doc's Sports Wednesday MLB Free Play!
Wednesday MLB Free Play from Doc’s Sports Take #972 Cleveland Indians (-135) over Kansas City Royals (Wednesday, 7:05pm EST) The Cleveland Indians and Kansas City Royals both exceeded expectations in a big way last year. The Indians grabbed a wild card berth with 92 wins while the Royals were in the race most of the way with 86. They were two of the best stories in baseball last season, but only one of those teams has a realistic shot of doing it once again. The Royals were successful in 2013 due to a dynamite bullpen and superb defense. Good bullpens are very hard to maintain from year-to-year as they are already finding out. Their bullpen ERA is over a full run higher than last season and two of their top guys are on the disabled on top of it. The Royals had unbelievable defensive metrics last season, and those will also be hard to repeat. The Indians, on the other hand, were successful last year mainly due to a well-balanced offense and good starting pitching numbers. Those variables are much more consistent from season-to-season, so I think the Tribe has a good chance to be in the thick of things again in 2014. Team ace Justin Masterson takes the ball for Cleveland on Wednesday, and he looked good last time out after a couple of shaky outings. On the other side is Jason Vargas for Kansas City – a guy who generally keeps his team in the game but won’t dominate the opposition. Big edge to the Indians there. Add in the home field advantage and the fact that Cleveland has the better overall team, and it all adds up to a play on the Indians here.
