Free Wi-Fi Comes to Downtown Atlanta... for Super Bowl

Comcast announced that it will offer free public Wi-Fi during the week of January 27 at eight MARTA transit stations, parts of the downtown Atlanta entertainment district - which includes Centennial Olympic Park - and at State Farm Arena, SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta. With tens of thousands of football fans preparing to visit Atlanta, Comcast is opening more than 5,300 Xfinity WiFi hotspots at the following locations: 
State Farm Arena: Jan. 31 - Feb. 3
Downtown Entertainment District: Jan. 26 - Feb. 2
Coca-Cola Roxy: Feb. 1
SunTrust Park and The Battery Atlanta: Feb 1 – 3
Eight MARTA stations: Five Points, Garnett, North Avenue, Dome, Arts Center, Civic Center, Midtown, Peachtree Center: Jan. 26 – Feb. 2
“It’s important that we welcome fans with a first-class customer experience – including free public Wi-Fi at some of the city’s busiest venues,” said Comcast Regional SVP Doug Guthrie. “By activating our Xfinity WiFi network, we can help more people stay connected in some very high-traffic areas.”  
For a map of the Xfinity WiFi hotspots, residents can visit http://wifi.xfinity.com/ and enter their zip code. Once in range of a hotspot, they should select the “xfinitywifi” network name in the list of available hotspots and then launch a browser. Xfinity internet customers can sign in with their usernames and passwords, and will be connected to Xfinity WiFi hotspots in the future.
Non-Xfinity internet subscribers should visit the “Not an Xfinity Internet Customer” section on the sign-in page to get started. Non-customers will be able to renew their complimentary sessions every two hours during the week of January 27th. 
After Feb. 2, Xfinity WiFi service at the eight MARTA stations, SunTrust Park and The Atlanta Battery, and State Farm Arena will be permanently available to Comcast customers, and on a limited basis to non-customers, as a complimentary service. 
Nationwide, Xfinity Internet customers have access to more than 19 million Wi-Fi hotspots.

Opening Super Bowl Odds

Let the betting begin.
The Patriots opened as an underdog in the Super Bowl, with Las Vegas installing the NFC champion Rams as a one-point favorite over Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in Super Bowl LIII, which will stream on CBSSports.com.
You read that right: the Patriots opened as underdogs. 
This little run as a dog didn't last long: the line quickly moved to Patriots -1.5 at many sportsbooks, including the Westgate SuperBook. The line fluctuated back and forth between Patriots -1.5 and Patriots -2 in the initial minutes following New England's win over the Chiefs in the AFC Championship Game. 
If the Patriots close as underdogs, it would be the first time they've held that distinction in a Super Bowl since the last time they played the Rams, way back in 2001 at the very beginning of their dynastic run of success in the NFL. That was Tom Brady's first year as a starter, when the Patriots shocked the Greatest Show on Turf to win Belichick and Brady's first Super Bowl.
The over/under is a bit shocking as well: it's set at 58, which would be historically high. The Patriots-Falcons matchup several years ago closed at 57 points. The next closest over/under was 56.5, which was when the Colts and Saints met in the Super Bowl following the 2009 season.
