Super Bowl XLVIII Betting News & Notes

The Super Bowl point spread doesn’t have much wiggle room before hitting the key number of three.

The vast majority of sportsbooks in Nevada and offshore had the Denver Broncos favored by 2.5 points over the Seattle Seahawks heading into the weekend, but there were a few shops that had Denver -3.

Bovada had been offering Seattle at +3 throughout the week, but even at the inflated number on the underdog 60 percent of the action was still on the Broncos.
