By Steve Makinen
Point Spread Weekly editor

Our cover story is Super Bowl LIII, and the topic is Prop Culture, as Dave Tuley dedicates his Takes feature this week to what he looks for in props. Keep in mind, though, that while he introduces the topic this week, our expert staff will be offering some picks and analysis for more specific prop wagering opportunities in next week’s issue. Also covering the SB LIII action is Matt Youmans, who shares the thoughts of many key people in the Las Vegas sports betting industry regarding the point spread of the game and what it means to them. He also offers up an interesting take on what he thinks caused the extreme early line move on the game.
