With game day quickly approaching, let’s get started.
Super Bowl XLVII Odds
Seattle Seahawks +2
Denver Broncos -2
The Seattle Seahawks (15-3 SU, 12-6 ATS, 6-12 O/U) have scored at least 23 points in each of their last three games, including both of their postseason contests while simultaneously not allowing more than 17 points in any game during the stretch. Seattle has covered the spread in two of their last three games, including as a 4-point home favorite against San Francisco in the NFC Championship game almost two weeks ago. The Hawks have not allowed more than 19 points in any of their last seven games and just once in their last 10 games overall.
The Denver Broncos (15-3 SU, 11-6-1 ATS, 11-7 O/U) have won four straight games and a blistering six of their L/7 games overall dating back to the regular season while covering the spread in three of their last four games overall. The high-scoring Broncos have topped the 30-point plateau four times during the span and have not given up more than 17 points in winning each of their last four.
Analysis: Maybe it’s me, but I am bit amazed that the Denver Broncos are favored to win this game. Nevertheless, I remain steadfast in my belief that the Seattle Seahawks are going to win this contest by largely keeping Peyton Manning and Denver’s explosive offense mostly in check.
Seattle limited the New Orleans Saints and all-world quarterback Drew Brees to just 22 points this season in two meetings, not to mention the fact that Denver hasn’t looked nearly as explosive this postseason as they did during the majority of the regular season.
I love Seattle’s defense and I believe one of young quarterback Russell Wilson’s biggest gifts is his ability to avoid the costly mistake. I like the Seahawks to pick off Peyton Manning at least once in this contest, if not twice, while keeping Denver’s superstar signal-caller on the sidelines by chewing up major chunks of time with a steady rushing attack led by Marshawn ‘The Beast’ Lynch.
I think the Seahawks have the better defense, the better rushing attack and better special teams units, giving them the clear-cut edge in two of the game’s three areas. I am going to advise NFL gridiron gamblers to go ‘all in’ on the Seattle Seahawks in this intriguing matchup as they win outright to cover the spread with room to spare!
Super Bowl XLVIII Pick: Seattle Seahawks +2 Points
Super Bowl XLVIII Double Result
Broncos – Seahawks +750
Broncos – Tie +2500
Broncos – Broncos +100
Analysis: As you can see from my above selection, I like the Seahawks to win outright and cover the spread. At +150, the value for the ‘Seattle-Seattle’ selection is pretty tempting. With a 2-point spread here, the one selection I would advise everyone to toss out are any of the high-paying ‘Tie’ odds, which are extremely value-packed for a reason.
So there you have it, my view on Super Bowl XLVIII Spread.
