7:04 am
112,000 years. according to this statistics professor who says it's still worth a shot. >> with a jackpot this high it's the first time that even superficially the powerball bet is a good bet. so, i would say go out and buy a ticket. >> reporter: okay, you heard it from the professor. we've got to get in on this game. you no longer have $40 worth of tickets because you're buying me ice cream, pregnancy girl problems. no whammies, okay. i'm going to be back in a minute with winning tickets. >> bring mine, okay. >> sara, you'd rather have ice cream than $900 million? >> because my chances of getting the ice cream are higher than you getting your millions of dollars. >> very good point. >> thank you so much. >> bring us all back -- bring me a ticket, sara. >> dan. >> thank you. we're joined now from austin, texas, about i the multistate lottery association chair and

friday was move-in day for amber jenkins and her mom katherine. she feels so lucky, she said, she may buy a powerball ticket now. yeah, good luck with that. >> good luck. >> yeah. now we know ron's view on the odds of powerball. thank you, ron, appreciate it. >> if you're not going to buy a powerball ticket i think it's a good weekend to sit on your couch and watch the nfl. here's why, the playoffs begin, wild card weekend, four big games that starts with the houston texans hosting the kansas city chiefs. you can watch it on both abc and espn and joining us from espn studios right now is nfl analyst former player and coach herm edwards. good morning, coach. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. have nice conditions in houston, but not so much in minnesota >> that's right. you know what, before we talk about today's texans/chiefs game. it's all about tomorrow. seattle. the ice bowl and freezer bowl. the prediction right now for the weather.
7:18 am
like 20 degrees below or colder, coach. how dangerous are those conditions? >> well, i don't know about dangerous so much. who can withstand the elms. both playing in a big game. you think about games of this nature, the first thing you're concerned with as a coach for the players is their feet and hands, keeping those things warm and then the balls. the balls have to be warm for the kickers obviously and the quarterback so you can't heat them with any heaters but that becomes a part of the process. along with the wind conditions. is it wet and is it windy or just windy or just dry and cold? so these are the conditions you have to play in, especially in playoff atmosphere and it's outside, both teams. no one gets any edge on that. it's just mental toughness and obviously ball security. >> yeah, no one gets the advantage. we have to start thinking of names. we've seen the freezer bowl and ice bowl. let's go back today. you once coached the chiefs playing the texans. who do you like in the gamy. >> i like the chiefs. i like the roll they're on. both these teams are built the same way.
7:19 am
but found a way chiefs being, what, with two wins, houston with two wins and find a way winning the division, the chiefs have won ten in a row now so i think the key is alex smith. he is actually the only quarterback in the playoffs with all the quarterbacks that has not turned the ball over. he's been in three playoff games. interceptions. this defense of the chiefs takes off takeaways. i think the chiefs find a way to win the game. i think it will be a fabulous football game. both built the same way with good defenses and it's not going all. >> enjoy the games from inside that the warm studios, coach. particularly tomorrow's game. morning. reminder you can watch them starting at 4:20 in afternoon on both abc and espn and this is pretty big because it's our first nfl game in ten years. >> it's awesome, man. speaking of the weather over to indra petersons, good morning, indra. >> have you ever seen golf
