The Baltimore Ravens defeated the San Francisco 49ers by a final score of 34-31 in the Super Bowl, recording one of the more highly favored margins of victory. A Baltimore win of one-to-six points was the third-favored outcome for the game.
The odds for the Ravens' victory and subsequent margins were as follows: 1-6 points, 4/1; 7-12 points, 6/1; 13-18 points, 12/1; 19-24 points, 20/1; 25-30 points, 33/1; 31-36 points, 60/1; 37 or more points, 60/1. If the 49ers had won, the odds for their margins of victory would have been: 1-6 points, 7/2; 7-12 points, 7/2; 13-18 points, 13/2; 19-24 points, 14-1; 25-30 points, 18/1; 31-36 points, 18/1; 37 or more points, 18/1.
Clearly the idea of a 49ers blowout was way more reasonable to Bovada bettors than that of a Ravens victory. The 49ers were heavy favorites in this game, and they almost managed to pull off what would have been the greatest comeback in Super Bowl history, but the Ravens held on for a thrilling win
