According to the, uh, experts, Super Bowl XLVIII is going to be one for the ages, a battle between the NFL’s top-ranked offense (the Denver Broncos) and defense (the Seattle Seahawks) that will probably come right down to the wire.
In fact, these two teams are so evenly matched that professional oddsmakers have basically declared the Big Game to be a “Pick ’Em,” installing the Broncos as 2-point favorites — a line that, if it holds until kickoff, will make this the closest Super Bowl spread since 1982.
And that means folks are looking everywhere for a possible edge … so as a service to anyone thinking of putting some money down on the Super Bowl, we’re providing a little insight.
