Super Bowl 2013 odds: 49ers open as 5-point favorites over Ravens

USA TODAY Sports

San Francisco opened as 5-point favorites over Baltimore, but that number has come down due to early betting favoring the Ravens.

The line is up for Super Bowl XLVII, and the San Francisco 49ers opened as a 5-point favorite over the Baltimore Ravens. However, since those lines went up on Sunday night, the early action has already moved the line down to 3 1/2 or 4 points in favor of the 49ers. The over/under opened at 49 points.

The 49ers and Ravens are practically mirror images of each other, as both teams like to pound their opposition running the ball and play tough defense. However, the big difference between the two teams is the extra dimension quarterback Colin Kaepernick's legs bring the 49ers on offense.

The 49ers went 9-7 against the spread this season, while the Ravens were 6-9-1. The game is obviously played at a neutral site, but the 49ers are 5-3 against the spread away from home, and the Ravens are 3-4-1. For what it's worth, the NFC is 5-0 against the spread in the past five Super Bowls.
