The Broncos opened as Super Bowl XLVIII underdogs at some Nevada sports books, but they quickly went favored, and this continues to be the case on game day.
Via “The Linemakers” of Sporting News and Pregame.com, the Broncos are 2.5-point favorites at numerous Nevada sports books, with the consensus total 48 points.
Most Nevada sports books have the Broncos as 5-to-6 favorites to cover the 2.5 points, meaning bettors have to lay $12 to win $10 as opposed to the customary $11 to win $10.
According to point spread records from the Marc Lawrence archives and VegasInsider.com, the Broncos are poised to be favored for the 30th consecutive time in regular-season and postseason play. They were last underdogs at San Diego on October 15, 2012.
