Another jeweler, another Big Game, and another big promotion. A jeweler in Baltimore is trying do drum up some business with the Ravens playing against the 49ers in next Sunday’s Super Bowl, and he is using a ploy that we saw earlier in college football.
The owner of Maryland jewler Saxon’s Diamond Centers, is willing to refund up to $5000 on any purchase made between Saturday and the Super Bowl if the Ravens happen to hold the 49ers scoreless in Super Bowl XLVII. The odds of this aren’t all to great for those willing to drop that kinda of cash. But heck, if you are planning on buying something over the next week, anyway, it is definitely a deal worth risking.
There have been 46 Super Bowls played, and never has their been a shutout. The lowest point total is held by the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl VI, when they only managed 3 points in their loss to the Cowboys. Only 7 teams have been held to 7 points or less. The Minnesota Vikings were held to that standard 3 of the times.
Had this been the 2000 Ravens, it would be a bold move. The defense itself held the Giants to zero points in Super Bowl XXXV. The special teams, however, allowed a Ron Dixon kick return for a TD
For what it is worth, the 49ers are on the board with the 26 points for their over/under odds
