Betting on Kap a Good Bet

San Francisco 49ers

Gamblers who weighed in on the side of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick could have won big on Sunday, despite San Francisco's 34-31 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Before each game, casinos create prop bets which allow bettors to place money on an individual athlete's performance. In most cases an “over/under” number is set, with gamblers betting on the player to exceed or fail to meet the benchmark.

Kaepernick made the over on total passing yards, with 302, easily surpassing the the line set at 232 1/2. He also reached the over on total rushing yards, with 62, beating the line of 50 1/2.

Kap scored a rushing TD, paying out at 11/10, and won two of the other, more unique prop bets.

One asked which would be higher: Los Angeles Clippers Point Guard Chris Paul's total points scored on Sunday, or Kaepernick's total completions. Paul did not play, due to a bruised right kneecap, while Kaepernick had 16 completions.

Another compared Kap to legendary 49ers quarterback Steve Young, asking if Kap would beat Young's record of 49 rushing yards in a Super Bowl. Kaepernick had 62.

Kap didn't make all bettors happy, missing out on a few other prop bets.

One set the mark for Kaepernick's longest completion at 37 yards; Kap's only reached 32 yards in-game. Another placed the over/under for longest Kaepernick rush at 19 1/2 yards; Kap's longest was 15.

Kaepernick also failed to eclipse two marks set by Young: longest rush in a Super Bowl, at 21 yards, and most passing yards in a Super Bowl, at 325.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller.

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
