January 23rd Superbowl news ... In professional American football, the Superbowl Prediction is the championship game of the National Football League (NFL).
In professional American football, the Super Bowl is the championship game of the National Football League (NFL). It and its ancillary festivities constitute Super Bowl Sunday, which over the years has become the most-watched U.S. television broadcast of the year, and has become likened to a de facto U.S. national holiday. In addition, many popular singers and musicians have performed during the Super Bowl's pre-game and halftime ceremonies. This is also the second-largest U.S. food consumption day, following Thanksgiving. The Super Bowl was first played on January 15, 1967 as part of an agreement between the NFL and its younger rival, the American Football League (AFL) in which each league's championship team would play each other in an "AFL-NFL World Championship Game". After the leagues merged in 1970, the Super Bowl became the NFL's championship game.
The Super Bowl uses Roman numerals to identify each game, rather than the year it was held since the NFL season extends beyond New Year's Eve. For example, the Indianapolis Colts, winners of Super Bowl XLI are the champions of the 2006 season, even though the championship game was played in February 2007.

Cam Newton: 'I'm hurt'
The Philadelphia Eagles treated Newton the way a boot treats a doormat on Monday night, leading many observers to suggest he should be pulled halfway through the 45-21 beatdown that wasn't even that close. Head coach Ron Rivera insisted on Tuesday that Newton wasn't injured, but on Wednesday, Newton conceded that he is "hurt," which is a small but critical distinction.
"Injured" means, in effect, you're out; "hurt," you can tough it out. And clearly, that's what Newton intends to do.
"Hurt is hurt. If youre asking me, am I hurt right now? Yeah, Im hurt. I havent, you know, felt 100 percent in a long time, Newton told reporters. You ask me a question, 'Is Cam Newton hurt?'
Yes, Im hurt. And thats all honesty. But can I play? Yes, I can play and I will be playing. Its mind over matter."
Newton and the Panthers play the Atlanta Falcons this weekend in what is virtually an elimination game in the NFC South. Those two teams, along with New Orleans, still have a shot at winning this misbegotten division, making this weekend's game critical.
You wouldn't think that Newton would need to be at 100 percent or, heck, even 30 percent to beat the woeful Falcons, but if Carolina is to have any chance of returning to the playoffs, it needs Newton in far better condition than he is right now.

Odds to Win 2008 Super Bowl XLII MPV2008-01-24
2008 Super Bowl line moves and MVP betting odds available at Sportsbook.com
Using Sportsbook.com's “Betting Trends” as an indicator, it appears as if the betting public believes Super Bowl XLII will be a lot closer then the lines makers originally thought. Opening at New York +14 on Sunday evening, the line quickly moved to +12.5 by Monday morning thanks to all of the heavy action on red hot Giants. And the line hasn’t stopped heading south; thanks to the 82% of the bettors betting against the flawless Patriots, the line moved another ½ point to where it currently sits at the Giants +12.
To the casual observer this might seem unbelievable considering the Patriots are 18-0 and the rate at which they were pummeling their opponents early on. Through the first eight weeks of the season, the Patriots covered every game and won by an average of 25.5 points. Ever since, they covered just two of their last ten games with an average winning margin of 13.1 points.
The Patriots recent trend of failing to cover isn’t the only reason the betting public is on the underdogs. New York has been very generous to bettors this season; currently 13-6 ATS including 8-2 as an underdog and 9-2 away from home. Also, the G-Me, proved in Week 17 that they could go toe to toe with the seemingly invincible Pats. Despite being 13 point underdogs, the Giants had the Patriots on the ropes before finally losing by just 3 points.
“It’s early, but it is amazing how much the public is deviating from their normal betting behavior,” stated Sportsbook.com Spokesperson Dave Staley. “Usually you can count on the public backing the favorite especially when a double digit spread is involved. The Patriots made a lot of people a lot of money through the first half of the season but it looks as if the bettors are now on the Giants’ bandwagon. It will be interesting to see if and how much more this line moves.”
