Playing the Over/Under

It looks like Sportsinteraction.com's blurb on the over/under was on the money (unfortunately for them if you actually placed the bet):

Total points to be scored in Super Bowl XXXVIII is sitting at 38, which isn't that surprising - the average total in the 37 Super Bowls played is 45.6. The lowest total ever was in Super Bowl VII, when Miami and Washington managed just 21 points between them. The highest total was Super Bowl XXIX, when San Francisco and San Diego turned up the heat in Miami. Everyone is saying that two defensive teams will lead to lowball, but the two most dominant denfenses of all time, Chicago in SB XX and Tampa Bay last year, ran up 56 and 69 points between them.
