Online Sports Books Gear Up for Super Bowl XLIX 2015

The Seattle Seahawks or New England Patriots are the two best teams in the National Football League after a long season of exciting games they will compete for the championship today in the Super Bowl XLIX 2015. Although it is illegal to wager on the outcome everywhere in the USA except Las Vegas Nevada there are many online sports books accepting the challenge and offering odds on prop bets as well as the ultimate outcome of the game.

Every year, analysts put their super computers to work to determine which team has the overall statistical advantage in the Super Bowl. The analysts have compared teams and found that the New England Patriots have a slight 1 point statistical edge over the Seattle Seahawks. The model employed does have differences with one computer simulation predicting the Seahawks will win the Super Bowl 53.7% of the time after 1,001 simulations. The venue for the forty ninth Super Bowl is the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona.

The Seahawks started their season slowly by dropping 3 games early. Then the Seahawks rallied at the tail end of the season to score the number 1 seed and subsequently a birth in Super Bowl 49. The predictions are coming in at about 50/50 making any real statistical determining to be very hard for the betting public. While many punters are betting on the win lose option prop bets are an interesting way of participating in the wagering. The defending Super Bowl champions from Seattle are the slight underdogs over the New England team but that isn’t any help to the punter looking for some insight into which team has the best potential for a win. The teams are matched well and at this point trusting one’s instinct may be the best course of action. Keeping in mind to gamble responsibly is a good thing to remember and that it this is just a game albeit a really big one.
