Lorenzen thought Pats would win XLII

...and tried to help his friends win a prop bet on the game.
Jared Lorenzen tried to give his friends edge on prop bet during 2007 Super Bowl vs. Patriots - ( New Window )

Giants were a long-shot.
Pull up those threads in the days beforehand...

But I really thought we were going to win. We almost beat them in that season finale that meant nothing to us, the Super Bowl Pats weren't the October Pats beating the Skins 56-0 or something like that, & Lady Luck seemed to be wearing a Giants cap.
From reading the link it sounds like his friends

drew that conclusion (Pat's winning), and not Jared.

I took that to mean Pats had two colors of Gatorade. The sentence before says he didn't bother to check the color of the Giants Gatorade.
I don't take it that way. They way I read it:

His friend and the guy telling the story says that "he told them both, and they (his friends) just assumed the Pats would win". So they only bet that way.

Giants and the points were easy money through both SB runs.

This had nothing to do with the spread. It was about one of those quirky prop bets; the color of the Gatorade that gets dumped after the win.

Itís ranks up there near the top. I give a slight edge to the US Olympic team beating the Russians (Do you believe in miracles?).

If you assume the Russians were professionals.
I think the Jets over the Colts was a little bigger upset

Nobody believed the AFL could compete with the NFL back then.

Yeah, but I remember some professional gambler talking about one of his general rules with championship games in professional sports. His rule was, if the money line goes higher than +300, bet the underdog. Rule of thumb more than anything, but it always made sense to me.

When I bet, I got them at either +380 or +400, can't remember.
Was going to make a bet on the Giants to win SB 46

with about 4 min remaining in the Week 14 Dallas game in 2011. Could have made a cool $30k on a $10 bet. Now that was easy money ;) Unfortunately my dog ate my computer.
I wouldn't say I was confident we were going to win the first one  
BlackLight : 7/11/2019 3:35 am : link
but it was ludicrous seeing pundits making predictions with the Pats winning by 30-35 points.

I thought as long as we kept the game close, we were going to have a legit shot to win the game in the 4th quarter. Which is what happened.

Actually the biggest professional sports upset of all time has to be Buster Douglas' Knockout of Mike Tyson.
