San Francisco opened as the early favorites in the Harbaugh Bowl.
Super Bowl XLVII is still two weeks away, but the early odds are in and the sportsbooks favor the San Francisco 49ers by at least 5 points, with a total set at 49 or 50 points.
Sportsbook.ag opened their line with the 49ers as a 5.5-point favorite with a total of 50 points, while BetOnline has the 49ers as a 5-point favorite with a total of 49.
The Baltimore Ravens looked impressive during their dismantling of the New England Patriots on Sunday, but their victory seemed to have little impact on the opening line. The huge number probably has a lot to do with the fact that San Francisco is an NFL glamour team and will receive a lot of action from the public over the next two weeks.
Last week the 49ers opened as 3.5-point road favorites against the Falcons and that number climbed as high as 5 points in certain sportsbooks, and eventually settled at 4.5. Expect a lot of the early money to move the 49ers’ line to 6 or even 6.5-points over the next two weeks. Bettors looking to take the Ravens plus the points should wait until sometime next week to place their bets, as this line will only increase in Baltimore’s favor.
