You say you want a proposition...

... or 50. Well, here are some for tomorrow's Super Bowl. But first, my chance to break even on the spread for the year. And to do so, I'm taking Indy minus 7. With very little confidence, since Manning's a choker, and I usually like the dogs. I also love the under 49.
