Super Bowl 2013 odds: 49ers maintain 3.5-point advantage over Ravens

Thearon W. Henderson

Baltimore has been the underdog in its last two games, and this one looks to be no different. Oddsmakers have installed San Francisco as a 3.5-point favorite over the Ravens in Super Bowl XLVII.


The versatility of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, combined with a powerful running game and a potentially suffocating defense, give San Francisco an edge in this game, but counting out the Ravens has been foolish this postseason. The Ravens are one of the least-valued playoff teams in recent sports memory, having been nine-point underdogs against Denver and New England before pulling off wins in both games to advance to the franchise's second Super Bowl.

Baltimore made it happen behind the outstanding play of quarterback Joe Flacco and an overall defensive unit that shut out the league's top-scoring offense, New England, in the AFC Championship game.

San Francisco is chasing history, looking to become only the second NFL team to win six Super Bowl titles. It would tie them with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Kickoff is at 6:30 p.m. ET from the Superdome in New Orleans.
