I am looking over the endless number of Super Bowl proposition bets. One bet is "team who will receive the opening kickoff." I would assume that if the Colts win the coin toss that they will elect to receive to put their best unit on the field to set the tone and to try to gain an early lead. As we've all been told, their defense has been built to play with a lead. Chicago's best unit is probably their defense. We saw the type of momentum swings that occurred in the NE vs SD and NE vs IND games when NE and IND scored to end the half and scored on the openning drive of the second half. I think it is safe to say the Indy is a more dangerous team in the second half once they find the match ups that they can exploit in their Lightning "no huddle" offense. From this standpoint, it would probably make sense for Chicago to give Indy the extra possession in the first half. Alternatively, Chicago may elect to receive to try to set the tone early with a big return by Hester. If you were Chicago, would you defer if you won the coin toss? Do you think they will? From a betting standpoint, knowing which team will have the first possession increases the odds on many of the "first team/player to..." bets.
