NFL Opening Odds: Setting The Table For Super Bowl XLIX

NFL Opening Odds: Setting The Table For Super Bowl XLIX

New England: Razor thin chalk at SportsBetting.ag

Combining the Patriots 45-7 crushing of the Colts, with the Seahawks 28-22 near stumble versus the Packers, bookmakers at the SportsBetting online sportsbook have posted New England as the early favorites to claim the Super Bowl XLIX Championship. This is a fairly dramatic shift as the NFC has been a 2.5 point favorite over the AFC for most of the season on the "generic" SB XLIX line. A year ago at this time Seattle was posted as underdogs versus Denver with a +2.0 point spread price.

NFL match up history between Patriots and Seahawks is largely ancient

Seattle's inaugural NFL season was in 1976 and they have faced New England 16 times over four decades with the series tied at eight wins apiece. The most recent clash was a 24-23 Seahawks home win in 2012 which was the rookie season for Hawks QB Russell Wilson. Seattle scored two touchdowns in the final seven minutes to pull out the win - sound familiar? Prior to that, filling in for Tom Brady who was out for the season, Matt Cassel led the Patriots to a 24-21 come from behind road win in 2008.

Our early lean is towards Belichick, Brady and the Patriots. Stick with us as we'll be back with several articles that break down the big game prior to offering up our definitive call on Super Bowl Sunday.
