Who is the favourite to win Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, February 1st? Is it the Seattle Seahawks or the New England Patriots?

If you are undecided as to who will win this game, you are not alone - even Las Vegas canít decide who the favourite is.

Shortly after the Patriots dispatched of the Indianapolis Colts to set up a showdown against the Seahawks, a number of Las Vegas sports books opened the line for the Super Bowl at Seattle -2.5.

That line quickly moved, however, and now some sports books have the Patriots as 1 point favourites while others have the Seahawks as 1 point favourites.

Much of the early money has been wagered on the New England Patriots, especially given the strength of their win over the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts, however, donít have anything close to the defense that the Seahawks do, while Seattle also has a much more multi-dimensional offensive attack. In addition, the Seahawks have plenty of big game experience as they are the current Super Bowl champions.


Who do you think will win the Super Bowl contest between the Seahawks and Patriots? Who do you think should be the favourites to win?
