NFL Championship Odds Update: Broncos Are Super Bowl Sunday Chalk

Seahawks soar as top chalk before Broncos bust it up

If you were hoping to get Denver as an underdog with reasonable juice for Super Bowl XLVIII, your window of opportunity was short and it closed quickly. For about ten minutes, just after the NFC Championship game ended, Seattle was installed as -1 point chalk before the sharps loaded up on the Broncos. Denver, currently posted as -2.5 (-115) ATS, will head into the Super Bowl as the favorites and they will also carry the home team designation. Our expert handicapping crew expected a -3.5 point spread and we advise Bronco backers to get in on the current price as it may still move – or gain additional jacked up  juice – prior to game time.

Lofty Over/Under odds match lofty Super Bowl expectations

You’d be hard pressed to argue that any team in the NFL is more deserving to play on Super Bowl Sunday than Denver from the AFC and Seattle from the NFC. In a classic offense vs defense match-up, the high flying Broncos will have to get past the Seahawks ball-hawking defense – that will miss their vaunted home field advantage for the first time in the playoffs. With Peyton Manning and the Broncos offense scoring at will all season, SportsInteraction bookmakers have set the Over/Under at a fairy lofty 48 (-110) total points.

Who do you like straight up: Seahawks to soar? Broncos to clip the Hawks?

With the point spread being so close, money line bettors are being offered equally sharp money line prices as Seattle is posted at +115  while Denver is listed at -135 straight up. After their stellar predictions for 2014 NFL Championship Sunday action, which resulted in all chicken and no feathers, our handicapping Crew is taking a well deserved day off. No worries though, they’ll be back in fine form later in the week and all the way up to the kickoff of the Super Bowl Sunday extravaganza. Stay tuned as we have a ton of coverage to deliver.
