The 2014 Super Bowl is set. The Denver Broncos will take on the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLVIII two weeks from today and Las Vegas sportsbooks are already preparing for one of the single busiest days of the entire year.
According to a CBS Sportsline report on Jan 19, early odds on Super Bowl 48 have it a pick, which really shouldn't come as too much of a surprise. Back in August the Broncos and Seahawks were the top two favorites to make it to the 2014 Super Bowl.
Now these two powerhouses will face off for this year's Lombardi trophy and the Vegas line will probably sit at even or -1 for either team, at least for this upcoming week. Odds maker Jim Feist has Seattle -1.5 and the over/under number set at 48.
Denver shut down Tom Brady and the Patriots this afternoon with a dominating performance winning 26-16 and capturing the AFC title. Just like earlier in the season the Broncos jumped up big on New England, but this time they didn't fade in the end.
Peyton Manning threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns and will return to the Super Bowl for the third time in his career, the first as a Bronco.
The Seahawks and 49ers played a hard hitting battle that came right down to the end, but with under 30 seconds left in the game Colin Kaepernick was intercepted on a great defensive play by Seattle and the Seahawks held on for the 23-17 win.
Let the Super Bowl hype begin!
