Patriots vs Seahawks at Super Bowl XLIX

The Seattle Seahawks both won and easily paid out on the Super Bowl betting lines in the NFL's championship game last season, and they'll get a chance to claim a second consecutive title on Sunday, February 1 when they battle the New England Patriots at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

And they might get to do it as a PK bet after a surge of late Seattle money this weekend pushed the line from -1 to PK at some shops. At Bovada, the widest spread was also trimmed as their line went from -2 for New England to -1.5.

"It's likely that trend will continue today as bettors recall what Seattle did last year to the slightly favored AFC team," said Jack Randall.

Seattle throttled Denver 43-8 as the betting underdog in last year's Super Bowl, and they advanced back to the title game with a dramatic 28-22 overtime victory over the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game. The Seahawks were 8-point favorites in that contest against the Packers and didn't manage to cover the posted spread at the sportsbooks.

New England won a laugher in the AFC Championship Game, pounding the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 to return to the Super Bowl for the first time since they lost to the New York Giants 21-17 in Super Bowl XLVI. The Patriots last faced the Seahawks in October 2012, falling 24-23 as a 4-point road favorite in that OVER result.
