Super Bowl 2015 Odds: Patriots vs. Seahawks looking like a pick’em

With nearly two weeks to go, Vegas weighs in on Super Bowl XLIX.

Greg M. Cooper-USA TODAY Sports

Following the conference championship games on Sunday night, Vegas opened the line for Super Bowl XLIX with the Seattle Seahawks as a slight favorite (2.5 points). However, with the heavy majority of betters taking the Patriots (around 80%), it pushed the line towards New England. Now, we’re dead even. Kevin Bradley, a Sportsbook Manager for explains:

"[Sunday] was not ideal with both the Packers and Patriots covering the spread, but we cannot complain as this Super Bowl matchup is ideal for us from a futures perspective. We have the line essentially at a pick'em right now but we’re seeing a ton of Patriots money which very well could make the Patriots the favorite before it’s all said and done. It’s not surprising as their blowout against Indy is fresh in people's minds and the Seahawks turnover show did not seem to impress anyone. Looks like we will be big Seahawks fans once again this year."

We’ll see how the line shifts over the course of the next two weeks, but expect it to ultimately be a pick’em match-up.
