Every year the Super Bowl draws more than 100 million viewers, and every year I'm astonished at how low the number is. Do really only 1-in-3 Americans watch the Super Bowl? Seriously, who do you know who doesn't watch the Super Bowl. But if you're reading this blog then you probably watch Wake Forest football. If you do that, then you'll certainly be watching when the two best football teams in the world play tonight. Below I'll share some of my favorite prop bets, along with other game information Feel free to use this space as a place to chat with fellow football fans while you watch the game. Lay out your predictions in the comment section below and prove that you're smarter than the rest of us. At the very least, leave some comments so you won't get fined.
