In advance of Super Bowl XLVIII, the betting lines and prop bets are constantly adjusting, but that hasn’t stopped the public from throwing down some of their hard-earned cash on the big game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
According to the current trend, this year’s Super Bowl is set to be the most bet on Super Bowl in NFL history, so make sure you are paying close attention to the betting lines over the next few days.
“With only a few days away this looks to be our highest wagered Super Bowl ever, on pace to be 25% higher than last year,” said Kevin Bradley, Sports Book Manager of Bovada.lv.
“We are starting to see some more Seattle money and what was 60% of the action for the first 10 days on Denver is now down to 55% both on the spread and the money line. What surprises me is even with the weather looking to be warmer and less chance of snow, 70% of the bets are still on the Under 47.”
