49ers are early favorites to win Super Bowl

The San Francisco 49ers are early five point favorites to win Super Bowl XLVII, according to the opening line established by the Las Vegas Sports Consultants. The early over/under is 49.5.

So, early on the odds are with little brother Jim over older bro John to come out on top. It should be of note that the initial Las Vegas line has been correct 6 out of the last 9 Super Bowls.

The three underdogs that won were the Giants, in both 2008 and 2012, and the Saints in 2010.

"It's a monster matchup, brother versus brother," William Hill oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said via the Huffington Post. "I believe it will top last year's Super Bowl handle and could go higher."

"We've got money coming in as we speak, it looks like it will be good on both sides," said LVH book director Jay Kornegay. "These teams mirror each other, but the 49ers are a bit more sexy now than the Ravens."
