Patriots the early pick in Las Vegas books

Oddsmakers made the Super Bowl essentially a tossup in opening lines Sunday, though bettors quickly turned the New England Patriots into a slight favorite in what is expected to be the most heavily bet — at least legally — title game ever.

Early bets moved the line at many books so the Patriots were either one- or two-point favorites. The over-under was 58 at some books, 58.5 at others.

The first Super Bowl since sports betting became legal outside Nevada is expected to draw record action in Nevada, and should blow past last year’s $158.6 million — itself a record — when the bets are tallied from a handful of states that now have sports betting.

The point spread will likely fluctuate around the city in upcoming days as big bettors make their moves.

1. If Rams defense play up to their potential, they can win


but that's a big if...and I could easily see Goff not being up to the task. Interesting to see if Gurley is ready to play more in two weeks.
