In just over 24 hours, the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will take the field at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, tomorrow (Sun., Feb. 2, 2014) for Super Bowl XLVIII, broadcasting live on FOX at 6:30 p.m. ET.
It's a compelling match-up between the two best and brightest from the NFC and AFC this season. Quarterback Peyton Manning leads Denver's top ranked offense into a tactical chess match against cornerback Richard Sherman and Seattle's top ranked defense.
There is a lot to digest but perhaps even bigger than all that are the odds and betting lines for the game. We're in America, after all, and its two favorite past times are pro football and gambling.

When the line first came out, the game was a pick 'em, which is to say there was no clear favorite or under dog. Then, action came in on Denver, which can largely be attributed to confidence in Manning.
There are also a million prop bets you can make, from who will win the coin toss (both teams are at -105 right now) to the first team to score (Seahawks at -105 while Broncos are at -125) to what the first score of the game will be (touchdown at -145 while field goal or safety is +115).
Remember, it was only two years ago that the Super Bowl kicked off its scoring with a safety. You never know.
There are some interesting single player prop bets, like whether or not Richard Sherman will record an interception (+200 Yes, -200 No). But, nothing bests betting on how many times Manning will say "Omaha" during the game:
