Broncos Favored in Early Super Bowl Wagering at GTbets

One of the busiest stretches on the oddsmaker’s calendar has arrived as betting on Super Bowl XLVIII is now underway. A full slate of betting lines have been published by the oddsmakers at GTbets.eu, where oddsmakers list the AFC champion Denver Broncos, who have compiled a 15-3 record SU this season to date, as 2.5-point favorites over the NFC champ, the 15-3 Seattle Seahawks.

The point total is currently pegged at 47 at GTbets, with both the OVER and the UNDER sporting a moneyline of -110. This is the lowest TOTAL number attached to a Broncos game this season. However, the UNDER is 5-0 in Denver’s last five, with the highest point total in any of those games reaching just 48. The UNDER meanwhile is 7-0 in the Seahawks' last seven. Only once in those seven games was the TOTAL higher than 43.5 points.

GTbets is also offering props betting on margin of victory. Denver is listed at 7/2 to win by one to six points. Seattle carries odds of 15/4 to win by the same margin. A Broncos victory by seven to 12 points is pegged at 9/2, and 13 to 18 points carries a line of 13/2. It is important to note that in the Broncos’ 15 victories this season, only once have they won by fewer than seven points. A Seahawks victory by seven to 12 points is listed at 5/1; while a margin of 13 to 18 points will net Seahawks fans a tidy 8/1.

Broncos QB Peyton Manning leads the pack in prop betting on which player will be named Super Bowl MVP. Manning, who is looking to become the first quarterback to start and win Super Bowls with two different teams, is the favorite at GTbets with odds of 11/10. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson, who is playing in his first Super Bowl in just his second NFL season, is listed at 11/4 to win MVP honors.

Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch, who has posted back-to-back games of 100+ yards in this year’s playoffs, follows at 5/1. A pack of 13 players trail the top three in MVP betting, with no other player sporting odds of less than 12/1.
