Las Vegas - Super Bowl prop bets

Below I've put together some of my favorite props for this Big Game. Including ones about one of our favorites here on BSR and the dime that will make me watch the Halftime Show for the first time since JT and Janet were getting freaky, Katy Perry.
Maryland Terrapins

Does Maryland continue to keep Dodd on the bench in favor of going small? Can the defense bounce back from two subpar performances? And most importantly, can Dez stay in front of Russell without getting into foul trouble?
John Harbaugh - Baltimore Ravens head coach

Coming to a Super Bowl Pregame Show near year, Baltimore Ravens head coach John Harbaugh.
Travis Snider - Baltimore Orioles outfielder

The Baltimore Orioles have acquired left-handed hitting outfielder Travis Snider from the Pittsburg Pirates in exchange for minor league pitcher Stephen Tarpley and a player to be named later.

As the Dan Duquette Departure Drama begins to fade (hopefully) into the rear-view mirror, Sam and Alan begin to look ahead, ever so cautiously.

Baltimore Orioles catcher Matt Wieters says the team has not reached out to him to discuss a contract extension. Wieters is a free agent after this season.

Leading Off  Another quiet week. Sound familiar? It's becoming something of a trend. The Orioles have managed to settle with a number of their arbitration-eligible...
Dan Duquette - Baltimore Orioles

It's all over. The Toronto Blue Jays have reportedly ended their negotiations with the Baltimore Orioles for GM Dan Duquette.
Buck Showalter - Baltimore Orioles manager

Which current Baltimore Orioles staff members could be elevated if Dan Duquette moves on to Toronto?
Jeff Hoffman

The Toronto Blue Jays could be sending one of their top prospects, Jeff Hoffman, to the Baltimore Orioles in return for Dan Duquette.
Baltimore Ravens vs. New England Patriots -- Bill Belichick and John Harbaugh

There's no escaping it. Deflate-gate is sweeping the nation and the Ravens continue to find themselves wrapped up in the middle of the Patriots' latest cheating scandal.

Motivational posters are simply the worst. You've seen them: hanging at the office, taunting you on a Monday morning with their overly positive attitude. But with such a harsh offseason as Orioles fans have endured, they might be just what the doctor ordered.
Colby Rasmus - Baltimore Orioles -- Houston Astros

The Baltimore Orioles can cross another free agent corner outfielder off their list. The Houston Astros have signed Colby Rasmus to a one-year, $8 million deal.

One day after former offensive coordinator Gary Kubiak left to become head coach of the Denver Broncos, the Baltimore Ravens named former Chicago Bears head coach, Marc Trestman as the team's new offensive coordinator. Trestman has quite a resume of developing quarterbacks at this level coaching the likes of Bernie Kosar, Rich Gannon and Jake Plummer during his career.
Dan Duquette and Brady Anderson - Baltimore Orioles

It's never easy to replace a General Manager, but given the current state of the Baltimore Orioles, I feel that it's even more difficult usual. Don't get me wrong, if Dan Duquette ends up becoming the Blue Jays CEO, his successor in Baltimore will be taking over an incredibly talented roster managed by one of the game's best skippers, but there are a number of really important decisions he'll be tasked with answering.

Another quiet week. Sound familiar? The Orioles have managed to settle with a number of their arbitration eligible players, and sign more catcher depth. Other than that... well... sorry, that's all we've got.
Dan Duquette - Baltimore Orioles

Orioles GM Dan Duquette won't comment on the possibility of him leaving Baltimore to become the Toronto Blue Jays CEO.
Gary Kubiak and Joe Flacco - Baltimore Ravens

Gary Kubiak totally teased Baltimore Ravens fans. He told us we rooted for a "special organization". Just seven days ago, he told us he "decided to stay with the Ravens".
