History Of Super Bowl Betting Lines
This year's Super Bowl in Glendale, Arizona between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks will be the 49th edition of the great American sporting event.

Super Bowl 49 Betting Odds
New England vs Seattle - Pick 'Em, O/U - 48 pts.
Super Bowl 49 will be just the fifth Super Bowl featuring a team favoured by less than 3 points, while the average betting line through the history of Super Bowl point spreads has been 7.5 points.
The opening line for Super Bowl 49 was Seattle -2.5, but with New England's impressive 38 point win over Indianapolis and injury concerns for Seattle, that line was swiftly flipped to New England favoured at -1. Following a week of torrid trading, most bookmakers now have the game listed as an even money contest. In Super Bowl betting history, there has never been a Super Bowl that began as an even money pick 'em. With the market now appearing settled, Super Bowl 49 looks like it will be the first.
The Over/Under points total is currently at 48 pts. In Super Bowl betting history, only 12 Super Bowls have started with a higher O/U line.
