2013 Super Bowl: Colin Kaepernick leads MVP odds

USA TODAY Sports

Kaepernick has 7/4 odds to become the Super Bowl XLVII MVP.

The odds for Super Bowl XLVII have been posted at Bovada with the NFC Champion-San Francisco 49ers as 4-point favorites against the Baltimore Ravens. Double-digit underdogs against both the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots, the Ravens haven't had any trouble covering the spread so far in the postseason; however, the 4-point spread is a much slimmer margin.

Kevin Bradley, the sports book manager at Bovada, said that bettors have been siding with the Ravens to start the week:

"Looking back at this NFL season, it has been very strange for the book. We might have had our best start to an NFL season ever and then Week 9 was the worst NFL week for us that I have ever seen, so Baltimore winning twice as double digit underdogs against Manning and Brady does not surprise me. However, Baltimore cost us on the weekend and are the only big loser for the book on our Super Bowl odds. Despite the bettors being enamored with Kaepernick over his last five starts, the Ravens covering all three playoff games easily has 60% of the bettors siding with Baltimore early on in the week."

Also posted on Tuesday were the odds to the Most Valuable Player Award at Super Bowl XLVII, with 49ers quarterback leading the way at 7/4.
