The 5.5 points seems to be the early consensus, with Pinnacle Sports opening their betting with the same lines.
As for the over/under, the current number sits at 49.
Perhaps the most interesting betting lines will be the prop bets that always entertain on Super Bowl weekend. This year’s prop bets will likely include an over/under on emotional outbursts from Ray Lewis, how many tears will stream down his face and the amount of times that retirement and brothers are mentioned.
