I still don't see how you could turn $10 a game into $1200, unless you are basing it on an accumulator of the games they won, which is hindsight! You would have lost your bank on the games they lost.
Future bets on the Superbowl are no more sucker bets than anything else.
The suckers are the people I read about on the Mane and who walk into a Vegas sports book and think 10/1 Denver is a fair price! In general the prices I see quoted on here mean you guys are getting stiffed.
If you shop around for the best price you can get the juice down to less than 5%. The typical juice on an NFL game is 10%, so seems pretty fair to me!
Even if you don't pick the Superbowl winner you can make money too. I managed to get Denver at 50/1 just before last season. Going into the final four they were favourites so I managed to lay off a decent chunk for a nice profit.
