You can't go wrong with a Monkey in advertising. I liked the one years back with a chimp clapping along to music.
I think it was from some now defunct internet investing site.

Like to see Atlanta win, but think New England will pull it off, Best commercial that I liked was Wendy's where's the beef.

Atlanta never makes it easy or ever wins in a yawner that I can recall.
1991 The Greatest World Series Ever, Atlanta vs Minnesota with the Twins winning it in 7 games in extra innings
and every game of the entire series had an element that was close to being a classic.

You're mostly right but two weeks ago against the Packers and the week before that against the Seahawks, not close from early on in either game. I think the only way they lose today is if they somehow suffer a rash of turning the ball over.

I agree on the '91 series, greatest series ever. Watched every inning of it. Braves probably would have won the 6th game and the series but for Lonnie Smith's late game base running error. John Smoltz going 9 innings and Jack Morris going 10 innings in the 7th game, incredible. Heartbreaker for Atlanta.

I believe that is the prevailing attitude outside of the North Eastern United States.
Most folks love to see an underdog win.
Haven't looked recently, but early on 74% of the betting action in Vegas was on the Patriots.

Here's a gambling story about a guy claiming to have been barred from playing Blackjack because he was too good.
How much were you up?
Well I was down at the moment, but you know those things turn around and when I threw my drink in the big fat pit bosses' ugly face they used it as an excuse to bar me, cause they knew I was too good... they knew... they knew.

74% of the Vegas betting action on New England to cover 3.5 and the line hasn't moved means one thing- bookmakers thinking Falcons gonna win!!!!!

Line opened at 3 pts and over/under at 59 and 74% of the early money came in on New England
Vegas moved the lines up 1/2 a point each to 3.5 and 59.5 to slow the betting on New England
The general public was betting New England -3 and over 59 too heavy for Vegas liking.
Vegas wants to make their money on the juice not the bet, they aren't in business to bet but to book bets and make commission off the betting not the game.... it was the late big bet 'wise' guys that swung total betting pool to Atlanta

The first turn over of the game just went to Atlanta's defense... the sun may be shining on the Falcons today.
