Super Bowl XLV opened as a pick at Pinnacle and, less than two hours later, moved Green Bay to a 2.5-point favorite. The line stayed steady until Wednesday, where some public books moved the Packers to a full 3-point favorite.
Sports Insights’ Betting Trends data shows the betting public is split right down the middle in this game with Pittsburgh as the slightest of pubic favorites, receiving 52% of spread bets. In fact, the most lopsided of our contributing sportsbooks is Sports Interaction, which has received 57% of spread bets on the Steelers, another indicator of just how split the public is in this game.
The lack of line movement and even betting percentages have caused a predictable silence from our Betting Systems that, at the time of publication, have yet to trigger a move on this game.
