Breaking Down the Offensive Numbers For the Broncos

imageBy almost any measure, Super Bowl bettors acknowledge that what the Denver Broncos were able to achieve this season on offense was remarkable. They scored more points than any team ever has in one season (606). Their quarterback (Peyton Manning) had more passing yards than anyone else (5477) and threw for more touchdowns (55) and he was sacked only 18 times in 18 games. No less than four different receivers caught 10 or more touchdown passes. This was a juggernaut without question, and it requires a much closer look.

Upcoming Betting Action to Watch For

image

It should surprise no one that the Super Bowl powers the week’s action in your sportsbook, but there are plenty of other matchups to occupy you until Sunday.

This week we will see Kevin Durant and King James meet on the hardwood, Duke visit Syracuse for their first ACC conference game in the Carrier Dome, the Bruins and Canadiens battle it out on the ice and Urijah Faber looking for revenge against Renan Barao in the octagon.

 Broncos Still Favored Over Seahawks In Super Bowl XLVIII

 Denver opened as a 1-point favorite over Seattle and the line has moved to two as the Broncos and Seahawks prepare for the big game in New Jersey on Sunday.

The weather could be a factor as snow is in the forecast, so remember that as you make your bets at WagerWeb also check out all the props that will be out there for the Super Bowl.

 James, Durant Square Off In Miami

Miami’s LeBron James has won four of the last five MVPs and was penciled in for his fifth, but it is hard to discount Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant after his current scoring streak.

The two met in the NBA Finals two seasons ago and on Wednesday, they’ll face off on South Beach.

 Original Six Rivals Meet In Boston

Whether it is preseason, regular season or the playoffs, Montreal and Boston don’t like each other.  

The decades-old rivals go head-to-head in Boston on Thursday night in a big Eastern Conference matchup.

Syracuse Welcomes Duke To The Carrier Dome

 Syracuse has been unstoppable in their first year in the ACC, but Duke has always been the team in this conference (along with North Carolina, but not this year).

The Blue Devils head to the Carrier Dome to knock the Orangemen off their perch Saturday on the heels of a convincing win on the road against Pitt Monday. Can they win two big ACC road games in a week?

 Faber Aims For Revenge, Belt Against Barao

 Renan Barao defeated Urijah Faber for the interim bantamweight belt at UFC 1498, but now that Dominick Cruz has vacated the title due to injury, Barao is the undisputed champion.

 Faber gets another shot at Barao at UFC 169 on Saturday. Also on the card, 145-point champ Jose Aldo meets Ricardo Lamas.

Behind Numbers: The Super Bowl XLVIII Pointspread

1. Pete Korner, found of Nevada-based odds service The Sports Club wanted to open Seattle as favorites. 

"Though I preferred to favor Seattle ultimately, with the other guys’ opinions, I settled with the original pick" - Pete Korner

2. Sportsbook.ag opened the game as a Pick, but early action pushed the line to Denver -1 within 15 minutes after 93% of the money came in on Devner. 

3. After moving the line to -1, 89% of the action continued to be on Denver and forced Sportsbook.ag to move the line to -3.

4. Oddsmakers aren’t worried about the heavy handle that came early on Denver and any middle opportunities it created because there is so much time for more action to come from Joe  Public before February 2. 

"The amount of action in such a short time doesn’t worry us”  - Mike Perry, of Sportsbook.ag

5. Kroner thinks Seattle is the better team overall, which accounts for his reason for wanting to post Seattle as Super Bowl chalk.

“I think (experience) is a big edge but Seattle is the slightly better team right now. If the line was made after half the season was done, Denver would have been a big favorite. Not now though.” - Pete Korner

6. Kroner doesn’t expect the weather to be a big impact unless it is windy. 

“We saw real crappy weather earlier in the year and the offenses exploded. All I can say is if it’s really windy, the better rushing team will be better off.” - Pete Korner

7. Kroner’s company sent out a Game Total of 49 and believes two factors will play into what Over/Under closes.

"The weather and the fact everyone will bet the Over no matter what we put up if the weather is OK. Just like they bet both championship games Over. Didn’t turn out so well there for them.” - Pete Korner
