Super Bowl XLIX: Alternative Spreads

In the 48-year history of the Super Bowl the line has closed at less than a field goal only five times. That will likely change from five to six times when kickoff for Super Bowl XLIX finally arrives on Sunday, February 1.

Since the Super Bowl winner has historically covered the spread at an 83 percent clip, previously beating the line in 40 of 48 games, it’s definitely worth looking at alternative numbers you can also bet on at online sportsbook Bovada.

- Who is going to follow in Seahawks linebacker Malcolm Smith's footsteps as the Super Bowl MVP for the big game on Sunday, February 1?

Deflategate Odds: Belichick Suspension?

Those nasty cheaters in New England are at it again (allegedly) and Patriots management is on the hot seat over Deflategate.

Did they deliberately deflate balls to cheat against the Ravens and the Colts?

Oddsmakers don’t know, but they know there is lots of interest and therefore lots of reasons to post odds on whether the league will suspend anyone over the controversy.

Super Bowl Betting Odds: Seattle Dogs?

Oddsmakers opened the Seattle Seahawks as 2-point favorites in Super Bowl 49 betting odds, but a flood of money on the New England Patriots quickly changed all that.

Now with at least one sportsbook (Bovada) moving the Pats into slight one-point favorite status, an interesting Super Bowl betting trend has come into focus.

There have been 19 teams that returned to the Super Bowl for a second straight year but only five times did that returning team end up being an underdog in the second season.

The New England Patriots had no problem winning and covering the posted spread against the Indianapolis Colts earlier this season as those teams get ready to meet in the AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium on Sunday.

The Colts upset the Denver Broncos 24-13 as a 7-point road underdog in the Divisional Round of the playoffs over the weekend, while the Patriots knocked off the Baltimore Ravens 35-31 but didn't cover a 6.5-point spread.
