We are counting down the hours until kick-off, yes we are finally down to hours and not days anymore, from MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. As the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks watch film, go over X’s and O’s, and get in their final medical treatments, sports bettors all over the world are finishing their betting research. There is only so much preparation you can do for such an important game, that will see Denver win Super Bowl XLVIII.

A parade is in the cards for the Broncos

With just hours remaining until kick-off, fans all throughout Colorado are hoping and praying that the Broncos return home with the Lombardi Trophy so they can prepare for a victory parade. One of Denver’s biggest fans, Colorado Rockies great Todd Helton, is rooting big time for the Broncos. He played college football with Peyton Manning at the University of Tennessee and the two have been close friends ever since. The Rockies even gave Manning a locker in the clubhouse so he could rehab from his neck surgery prior to joining the Broncos.

Seattle will not go down without a fight

Despite all of the talk this week that Denver will win this game, fans in Seattle are saying “what about us?” Well, they are right. We cannot forget that there is another team playing against Denver Sunday. The Seahawks did not back into their success. They played smothering defense, especially in the secondary, and found ways to win when it counted the most on offense. Look for Russell Wilson, Marshawn Lynch and company to explode early if they want to bring Lombardi to Washington on Monday morning. 

When the oddsmakers at Bovada released the line for Super Bowl XLVIII, they did not put much separation between Denver and Seattle at first. Now, the spread is -3 in favor of the Broncos. We like a final score of 21-18 Denver as we bet 10 percent of our bankroll with the spread despite a strong showing from the Seahawks.
