I took all the Super Bowl bets and compiled them into one google doc file.

You get 1000 W-dollars to spend on any bets that you want. The person who wins the most money will win the respect and adulation of everyone involved. Everyone who finishes below +50 will be heaped with scorn (assuming I calculated these odds correctly, +50 is your winnings if you bet all $1000 that there will not be a missed extra point (-2000), the proposition that bodog lists as the most likely among any of them).

I can tell you that from least likely to most likely, moneyline odds go like this: +3000, +200, +105, EVEN, -105, -200, -2000.
Under the multiple choice betting section, there are a few that are listed in fractional odds instead. In fractional odds, 1/1 is the same as EVEN, 4/1 is the same as +400, and 1/4 is the same as -400.

So the most you could possibly win is if you spent all 1000 W-dollars on a bet that Jerry Jones would appear on the cover of the Monday after the Super Bowl's USA Today holding the Lombardi trophy. Odds for that are 100/1, so that would earn you a cool 100,000 w-dollars should that happen. But the only scenario I can see that with is if he pulls a daring heist of the trophy and tries to flee the country with it, which seems unlikely.

All bets have to be in before Christina Aguilera appears for the national anthem.

I'm putting all of my eggs in the James Jones basket:

How many receiving yards will James Jones have? Over 35½ -130

How many receptions will James Jones have? Over 3 -130

Will James Jones score a touchdown? Yes +155

Who will record more receiving yards? Heath Miller EVEN James Jones +4½ -130

Who will record more receptions? James Jones EVEN Jordy Nelson -130

EDIT: Crap, I missed the multi-choice tab!

Player to Score First TD
James Jones 12/1

Player to Score First Green Bay TD
James Jones 7/1

Full disclosure: I had already went James Jones heavy on actual, real money betting before this thread, so if it's good for my real money, it's good enough for my fake money.
