To put the Super Bowl bettting in perspective, let's consider that betting on the Pro-Bowl exceeded the Heats-Celtics and Thunder-Lakers games combined. The Pro-Bowl people.
With more than $90 million expected to be bet on the Super Bowl in Las Vegas and who knows how much in the offshore world, it's an understatement to say that people all across the world are looking for an edge. Let's take a closer look and see what we find.
Baltimore Ravens vs San Francisco 49ers: SF -3.5
As the conference championship games were winding down, Vegas put out a point spread around -5 or -4.5. Immediately sharp money took the Ravens and the semi-official opener settled around -4.5 or -4. Since then we haven't seen a lot of significant movement. The line has settled at -4, but -3.5 is out there if you shop around (odds courtesy of SBRforum).
