6:21 pm
no. 1 mvp? russ: he will be the mvp. if not, that will be a major upset. now you can bet on anything. cam newton has been pencilled in by book makers as the five to seven, the odds on heavy favorite to be the mvp in super bowl history. that means five to seven, you've got to lay 140 to win 100. ernie: who's running second? russ: peyton manning. but at seven to two, which is a far cry. why is it -- the quarterbacks, it's like 26 or 27 times the quarterbacks have been the mvp. if your team wins, chances are it will be a quarterback. i don't understand -- people are making the carolina panthers to be a foregone conclusion. i don't see it. i see the game very close. ernie: thanks a lot. we all dream of hitting the lottery. of course we do. we would like to cash it and get that ticket cashed in.
