Sports Betting Post #100

Okay. I lied. I'm back, but this is my last post of the day!

Anyway, I found the opening lines for the Super Bowl, and wanted to post it here as reference.

Las Vegas Sports Consultants, the company that dispenses odds to 90 percent of Nevada’s casinos, has been busy updating odds not only for the upcoming games but matchups that might not even take place. Odds and totals are already posted for the Pittsburgh-Denver contest, and the Carolina-Seattle tilt. But what about the Super Bowl that is now just a couple weeks away?

LVSC provided these odds for all four potential matchups set for Sunday, February 5 at Detroit’s Ford Field providing any major injuries. Denver has been installed as a three-point ‘chalk’ over Seattle, with the total set at 49. The Broncos would be a four-point favorite versus Carolina, with the total listed at 45 ½.

Should Pittsburgh advance to Super Bowl XL, the Steelers would open as a 2 1/2-point ‘chalk’ over the Seahawks with a total of 47. Pittsburgh would also entertain favored status over Carolina at 3 ½, with a total of 43 ½.
Good night. Good Luck.
