The Super Bowl Prop Gambling Game 2018

For the three readers who enjoyed it last time, I’m giving you the updated Super Bowl Prop Gambling Game for 2018. 20% more degenerate gambling, 50% less saturated fat, 100% money back guarantee!

As a reminder, this is the game for people who are going to watch the Super Bowl with friends but can’t tell a football from a handegg, or for football diehards with a gambling problem. You can read the details in the last post, but in brief:

  1. The more players the better, print everyone a sheet or combine all the answers in a spreadsheet.
  2. For each question, pick exactly one of the alternatives. If that option comes true, you win the number of points listed next.
  3. If you pick options at random, you’ll do no worse than anyone else. The points are calibrated by me to precisely match the inverse odds of every option coming true. Trust me, I’m the Putanumonit guy, and I’m going to have a lot money riding on this tonight.
  4. Enjoy the game, unless you’re a Pats fan.


You can also access the spreadsheet on Google Sheets.
