Niners look for win and cover at the Super Bowl

The San Francisco 49ers find themselves sitting as the 4-point favorite on the Super Bowl betting lines right now as they look to pay off with an ATS victory for the third straight playoff game when they battle with the Baltimore Ravens this Sunday night.

Bodog has the Niners favored and the OVER/UNDER at 47.5 points for the contest, with San Francisco already paying off against both the Green Bay Packers and the Atlanta Falcons so far in the postseason. The underdog Ravens, however, have been lucrative as well in the postseason with ATS wins over the Patriots, Broncos, and Colts.

Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who took over from Alex Smith partway through the regular season, will be looking to continue a strong playoff run in New Orleans on Sunday, and he’s the 8/5 favorite on the Super Bowl MVP odds at Bodog heading into the game. Rival QB Joe Flacco is next at 11/4 on the odds to win the Super Bowl MVP award – he has eight touchdown passes and zero interceptions so far in the playoffs.

The Super Bowl props at Bodog have Kaepernick at 8/1 odds to score the first touchdown of the game, with Niners running back Frank Gore at 13/2 and Ravens running back Ray Rice at 15/2. Kaepernick also has a passing yards OVER/UNDER of 232.5 and a rushing yards OVER/UNDER of 50.5 for Sunday’s championship contest.

In the more exotic prop bets, heads and tails are the co-favorites at -105 for the coin toss, while the OVER/UNDER for the post-game handshake or hug between Jim  and John Harbaugh has been set at seven seconds on the Bodog NFL Super Bowl props.
