Super Bowl 2015 Odds: Early Patriots-Seahawks Line is a Pick'em

New, comments

Seattle was the early favorite in Super Bowl XLIX, but the public is betting heavy on New England.

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

When the Super Bowl line opened last night, the Seattle Seahawks were as much a 2.5 point favorite depending on who was setting the spread.  The game has since moved to a pick'em with reports of 80% of the public money coming in on the New England Patriots.  That is an interesting trend that will be worth monitoring over the next two weeks  Of course the "professional gamblers" who control the "sharp money" won't start placing their bets until the day of the game.
