On Friday, on the http://sports.bovada.lv/, the Denver Broncos are -3 favorites over the Seattle Seahawks for the 48th edition of the Super Bowl.
The game, being played at Metlife Stadium at 6:30 p.m. EDT, has the No. 1 offense in the NFL (Broncos) and the No. 1 defense (Seahawks).
In their past five games, the Broncos have covered the point spread three times, going 1-1 in the postseason.
The Seahawks in their past five games are also 3-2 in the point spread, also going 1-1 in the postseason.
This is an interesting bet, to say the least. I can’t predict who will or won’t cover the point spread in this game, but I would keep an eye on it to see if it changes before kickoff on Sunday.
Peyton Manning seems to be the favorite to win Super Bowl MVP with him being 11/10 odds of ending the night with the award. In second is Marshawn Lynch, with the Seattle running back being 15/4 odds of winning. Seattle QB Russell Wilson is also 15/4 odds.
Lynch is also the favorite to score the first TD of the game at 11/2. Wes Welker is second on the list at 13/2 odds.
There is a novelty prop bet of which song Bruno Mars will sing first during the halftime show with “Grenade” having 7/1 odds. “Just The Way You Are” is second at 5/1 odds.
Demaryius Thomas, Eric Decker and Wes Welker all have 7/2 odds to be the first Broncos player to make a reception in the game. Julius Thomas is 5/1 odds.
There are plenty more of these type of wagers being offered on the site.
