Even though we are just about two weeks away from the 2014 Super Bowl, wagers against the (point) spread and on both teams’ money lines are storming in. But, have you ever stopped and wondered what it would be like to bet on different scenarios during a game of this magnitude?
For example, imagine how much more exciting watching the Super Bowl would be if you could make money on things like quarter and halves money lines and spreads. Thanks to the ingenious efforts of Sportsbook.com oddsmakers this is possible just in time for the big game.
Before we get into that, let’s update you on the latest NFL odds for Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014 at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands.
According to the experts, the Broncos open things up as -2.5 favorites against the Seahawks. The O/U is set at 48 points and straight-up money lines have Denver at -140 and Seattle at +120.
Now let’s get to the fun part, beginning with the very first quarter of the game, which is probably the easiest to predict. Based on how inexperienced they are in playoff football, the fact that this will be the Seahawks’ biggest game should play a factor in the opening quarter.
Sportsbook.com has the Broncos as -0.5 favorites versus the Seahawks +0.5 in the opening stanza and the O/U set at 9.5 points total. I believe this is an easy bet to make, and I like my chances of Manning getting off to a solid start, before Seattle’s defense settles in.
For those who also believe that Manning and the Broncos will have the upper hand in the early going, here’s a more challenging question: Which team will go into the break ahead in the scoreboard?
NFL odds point spreads also favor Denver in this category, listing the AFC Champs -1.5 favorites over the NFC representatives and the O/U for the first half is 24 points. in terms of money lines, the Broncos are listed as -135 and the Seahawks +115 odds to claim the halftime lead after the opening two quarters of play.
