The Indianapolis Colts enter today's Super Bowl match-up against the Chicago Bears as seven-point favorites. This line has remained the same for the past two weeks. That surprises me as I expect the Bears to play a good game and keep the score close - at a minimum.
If I were a betting man - and I emphasis I am not, I would take the points. There are two worries, though. First, my opinion hasn't changed since I saw the seven-point line. I worry I have missed an important piece of info that would lead me to reconsider my initial position.
Second, the spread screams, "Take the Bears!" and, when Vegas says that, I want to take the contrarian position and lay the points. That then loops back to my first worry.
Anyhow, I hope Peyton Manning wins his ring and puts a stop to all the blather about not being great due to a lack of one.
Colts 26 Bears 23.
