We enter the 2015 Super Bowl with two familiar faces taking the main stage as the defending Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks try to be the first team to win back-to-back titles since their Super Bowl opponents, the New England Patriots accomplished that feat in 2004 and 2005.
Multiple Las Vegas casinos introduced the line as a pick ’em play, but some early betting on the Patriots caused some bookmakers to adjust that spread, making the Patriots a one-point favorite with still over one week till the Super Bowl. Still plenty of time for action to shift things, but early trends point to the Patriots as the public’s consensus favorite.
As 2.5 point underdogs in last year’s Super Bowl, the Seahawks continued the streak of the underdog team winning the Super Bowl outright for the 3rd consecutive year when they dismantled the Denver Broncos. More so, the underdog has covered the spread in 6 of the last 7 title games.
Neither team has much familiarity with playing the underdog role this season as the Seahawks were underdogs only once this year which was by one point in San Francisco for the Thanksgiving game, while the Patriots once, as well, when they were underdogs in Green Bay, whom they lost to by 5 points.
The total is also due to change over the coming days leading up to the game as it opened at 48.5 points, but quickly moved to 49 and 49.5 points for some Vegas casinos. Seattle once again features one of the league’s stingiest defenses, resulting in none of their last 9 games going over 48 points total in regulation. Last week’s game against the Packers did go over 48, but only after overtime.
