Setting Super Bowl prop bets a major chore

Oddsmaker says Patriots' consistency helpful in crunching numbers
Seven days before Super Bowl Sunday, the game within the game has started. Several hundred proposition wagers have been posted at Las Vegas sports books, and bettors have been busy crunching numbers and picking them apart.
Prop bets are responsible for about one-third of the money wagered on the NFL title game in Nevada. If a new record is set in terms of handle -- something in the neighborhood of $100 million -- we're talking about $33 million that will be devoted to the approximately 300 unique prop bets.
