Super Bowl XLIX Prop Bets: An Early Roundup

It's almost difficult to summarize the Super Bowl 49 prop bet offerings; it might take until game day to sort through them all. Online sportsbook Bovada is offering Super Bowl props on players, stats, teams, touchdowns, interceptions, field goals, the national anthem, the halftime show, the Gatorade shower, and most things in-between.

Super Bowl Betting Preview and Game History

The NFC owns the upper hand in the recent Super Bowl rivalry with the AFC, winning four of the last five Super Bowls outright, going 6-1 against the spread over the last seven. The NFC's Seattle Seahawks, who won the Super Bowl last season in convincing fashion, will try to add to their home conference's recent run when they take on the AFC's New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday, February 1 in Glendale, Arizona.

Seahawks Favorites at Home Over the Packers

The Seattle Seahawks ride a seven-game winning streak into Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers at CenturyLink Field, going 6-0-1 ATS in that span. The defending Super Bowl champs also already own a win this season over the Pack. If they can repeat their performance from Week 1 they'll find themselves just one more win away from joining the elite ranks of back-to-back Super Bowl champions.
