The Patriots have now settled in as Super Bowl XLIX betting favorites at all the online sportsbooks after opening as the underdog for the contest, with lines ranging from New England -1 to New England -2 across the board.

That tight line mirrors the OddsShark Computer projection for the contest, which is posted as New England 35.0, Seattle 34.6. The public consensus at OddsShark for the game as of Thursday had New England receiving 60% of the support on the line and the OVER receiving 53% of the support on the total (48 points).

And grabbing the headlines right now is the Deflategate controversy, with the Patriots accused of deflating the game balls used in the AFC Championship Game against the Colts. Online sportsbook Bovada has even posted a pair of prop wagers on the scandal.

---------------

Are we headed toward a pick'em at Super Bowl XLIX? The Seattle Seahawks opened as a 2-point favorite for the game, but that line has already moved in New England's favor to the point that the Patriots are now the favorites at some online sportsbooks.

In fact, as of Tuesday night the Patriots had moved to 2-point favorites on the odds to win Super Bowl XLIX at online sportsbook Bovada, with other shops listing Tom Brady and company at -1 and still others holding the game as a pick'em on their betting line.

The total for the game opened at 48.5 points, and it continues to hover around the mark.

Betting on the Super Bowl is the most common sports wager in America, but many believe that you can only bet the NFL title game after the teams are set. Truth is, there are Super Bowl betting odds all season long as online sportsbooks offer future bets on every team.

Preseason favorites start as early Super Bowl picks and injuries and hot streaks shape the line all season. By the time the Super Bowl rolls around in February (and the Patriots and Seahawks have advanced as the top seeds in each conference), the lines on all the teams will have morphed and changed dozens of times. And shortly after a champ is crowned, Super Bowl odds go up for next year’s game!

Super Bowl Point Spread

And the spread is not where betting ends, it’s just where it starts. Sportsbooks offer literally thousands of Super Bowl prop bets and variations on the traditional NFL point spread, over under, and moneyline.

Bet the coin toss? Sure why not? Bet how many times the quarterback’s hot new girlfriend will be shown during the telecast? No sweat. Which Super Bowl ad will have the highest Nielsen rating? There are Super Bowl props on that too.

Super Bowl Bonuses

With so much wagering and so many betting options, sportsbooks do their best to help fans boost their bankroll before Super Bowl Sunday.

Many will offer special perks and deposit bonuses to turn your $100 deposit into $50 in bonus cash. Others will offer free bets if you place a certain number of wagers or deposit a certain amount of money. Check out the latest bonus specials.

Super Bowl Contests

And for bettors who like to have just a few wagers on the go but who love the challenge of a Super Bowl Contest, many shops will offer props games where you pick many outcomes. Who will score the first TD? Will the longest field goal be over or under 44.5 yards? Which QB will have the most passing yards? These comprise some of the typical questions in free Super Bowl competitions offered by sportsbooks such as Bovada and others.
