How to Bet on Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday

Only two of the previous 48 Super Bowls have seen the point spread close at less than two points, and none of them have ever kicked off as a pick’em. That makes it especially easy to wager on Super Bowl XLIX between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks since the spread likely will not come into play at all.

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.

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.

Seattle will face the 14-4 New England Patriots, who own a 10-8 ATS mark on the season. In totals betting, the Seahawks are 10-8 so far this season while the Patriots are 10-8.

Why Patriots Will Win Super Bowl XLIX

There has been a whirlwind of media coverage surrounding the New England Patriots since they crushed the Indianapolis Colts 45-7 in the AFC Championship Game due to the Deflategate controversy.

It’s hard to argue that under-inflated balls impacted that final result against the Colts because the game was so lopsided, but it may actually end up keeping the three-time Super Bowl champion Patriots from over-inflating their egos heading into the big game.


Why Seahawks Will Win Super Bowl XLIX

Last year, the underdog Seattle Seahawks proved that defense wins championships in capturing the franchise’s first Super Bowl title in a 43-8 rout over the Denver Broncos, who came into the big game touting the NFL’s most prolific offense ever.

Seattle’s defense was the best in the league yet again this season and should pose some serious problems for a New England Patriots team that lost the Super Bowl in this same venue seven years ago.
