Betting odds moved to pick'em.

Is there any better indicator of how close this game will play out than the odds moving yesterday(Saturday) to Pick'em.

 

"We're taking more bets on the Patriots, but the more substantial money has been on the Seahawks," Jason Simbal, vice president of risk for CG Technology, said Saturday. "What we've been seeing lately is for every two-, three-, four- or five-hundred dollar bet that comes in on New England, we'll then take a five-figure bet on Seattle."

 

Holy crap. Mrs. Tripleshot and I just got back from a night at Tulalip casino and budgeted ourselves $500 for gambling for the night. I can't imagine throwing a five figure sum on any bet other than Seahawks 21 making some inane comment here to further increase the hate for Seahawks fans.

The opening line was only -1 for the Patriots. The game does present a challenge since these are probably two of the least liked teams outside of their own fan bases but I have to think that Seattle is less hated since they are so new to winning. Distaste for the Patriots has simmered for a decade or so for most.

 

The interesting thing is that these two teams are just so different and have not played one another that a comparison is hard to make.

I read that someone put a $1,000,000 bet on the Patriots. http://www.nj.com/super-bowl/index.ssf/2015/02/super_bowl_2015_odds_seattle_seahawks_remain_2_point_underdogs_to_new_england_patriots.html#incart_river Edited by keggerz

Your link took me to setting up a skype account

 

:thinking:

 

I'm not sure what happened because I didn't even have a skype tab open. Anyway, I fixed the link in my post.
