Can he complete the comeback with a win at the biggest race of the year? Or will a challenger come from behind and be crowned this year’s Daytona 500 champ.

Super Bowl LI Betting Bonanza

Super Bowl LI between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots kicks off this Sunday, Feb 5th. If you can’t make it to Las Vegas to bet, 5Dimes has you covered.

The Super Bowl spread remains New England minus-3 with a total of 59. If you are looking for other ways to get into the action 5Dimes is offering the hottest props anywhere. 

Click here to bet on Super Bowl LI action at 5Dimes!

Bet 5Dimes

Most eyes will be on who will win Super Bowl LI MVP. Tom Brady opened as the favorite to win MVP at 10-11. Matt Ryan is second at 8-5. Julio Jones and Julian Edelman are next at 12-1. Super Bowl XLIX hero Malcolm Butler is an 80-1 long shot.

Another popular prop wager at 5Dimes is the player to score the first touchdown of the game. There is a four-way tie at 8-1 with one Falcon and a trio of Patriots: Jones, Edelman, Chris Hogan & LeGarrette Blount. Brady and Ryan are both 20-1. And it’s 500-1 that no TD will be scored in the whole game. A field-goal only Super Bowl sounds as bad as it could get, but it would make Matt Bryant or Stephen Gostkowski in line for MVP honors. Both opened as 80-1 longshots.

Do you feel Brady is in for a big game? Brady’s exact number of touchdown passes is another available wager. Do you think he will get 6+ TDs? You can get it at 20-1.

What Can You Bet On Before The Super Bowl?

While all eyes are on Super Bowl LI on Feb 5th, don’t overlook a couple of amazing sporting events that offer a ton of betting value. The Pro-Bowl and Aussie Open tennis finals.

First it’s the red-headed step-child of the NFL. No, not the Cleveland Browns. It’s the Pro Bowl. While the NFL dubs it a celebration of its brightest stars of today and tomorrow, the players and fans are less excited. If you’ve completely lost track of the Pro Bowl, the NFL has decided to go back to the regular AFC vs. NFC format. For the past three years, the league used a format where two captains picked each team.

Aussie Open Tennis

On the Men’s side, we have Roger Federer, 35, playing his fellow Swiss Stan Wawrinka in the first semi-final on Thursday. and Nadal facing Dimitrov. Rafael Nadal, 30, reached his first Grand Slam semi-final since 2014 and will face 15th seed Grigor Dimitrov on Friday after the Bulgarian beat David Goffin.

The Spaniard remains on course to meet Federer in Sunday’s final. Click here to bet on tennis now.

On the Women’s side, the world is sensing that the 105th Australian Open is a trip down tennis’ memory lane, as a Williams-Williams final grows ever-more likely. The Williams’ are joined by the young gun of Coco Vandeweghe, their hard-hitting compatriot.

The other unseeded player standing in the way of a family affair is Mirjana Lucic-Baroni.

NFL Final Four Featuring the Pats, Steelers, Packers & Falcons

Welcome the NFL post-season final four.

As in most years, the NFL Conference Championships features four Super Bowl worthy teams that the great Vince Lombardi couldn’t deny. But this year they also include four elite quarterbacks.

Brady.

Rodgers.

Roethlisberger.

Ryan.

Bet 5Dimes

This is the first time in the Super Bowl era that the last four teams each have a quarterback that has thrown for more than 200 TDs. What’s more is that, Matt Ryan of the Falcons, Tom Brady of the Patriots and Aaron Rodgers of the Packers were first, second and fourth in the key statistic of adjusted yards per passing attempt.

Ben Roethlisberger had the least impressive numbers this year. But he and the three other remaining QBs were first, second, sixth and seventh in passing touchdowns, despite Brady missing four games for his deflation suspension and Roethlisberger missing two because of injury. This Sunday is going to be crazy.

The Tide opened as a touchdown favorite to beat the Tigers for a second time in a row for college football’s national title on Jan. 9 at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. You can watch the game live on ESPN or stream it via Watch ESPN.

Bama took care of the Washington Huskies in the Peach Bowl, while Clemson shut out the Ohio State Buckeyes in the Fiesta Bowl, setting up this rematch. In last year’s national championship game, Alabama beat Clemson 45-40 as a 6.5-point favorite.

The New Year = The Return Of Tiger

The New Year is upon us and we have had a Tiger Woods sighting.

Woods finished in 15th in an 18-player field at the Hero World Challenge in early December, closing with a 4-over 76 in his first competitive tournament in 15 months.

That was enough to send the golf betting world into a dizzy and a flurry of action on his odds to win next year’s Masters. Woods’ odds to win the 2017 Masters were as low as 16-1.

Matsuyama’s (the Hero World Challenge Winner) odds to win the Masters were down to 15-1 earlier this month. He was one of five golfers with better odds than Woods.Jason Day and Jordan Spieth were 8-1 co-favorites to win the Masters, with Rory McIlroy at 9-1.

Tiger was listed at 20-1.The Masters will take place April 6-9 in Augusta, Georgia.
