Vegas books now have Super Bowl XLIX as a pick’em


USA Today Sports

24 hours before kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX, sportsbooks in Las Vegas have moved the line to a pick’em between the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots. 

“The game has tremendous two way write.  Sharps get involved at Seattle at even money,” says Ed Salmons, the head linesmaker from the Westgate LV Superbook. “Side is a little higher on patriots and over is getting a lot of public action.”

Initially most Vegas books opened the line at a pick’em before moving to Seattle +1. The line stayed at SEA +1 for most of the week in Vegas before shifting back to the initial spot Saturday.

Following the trend, many offshore books have started moving the line to a pick’em, but some were still dealing SEA +1 as of 4 PM EST Saturday.
