Vegas favors 49ers in Super Bowl

If the Baltimore Ravens become Super Bowl champions, they'll have to beat the odds again to do it.

Bookmakers in Las Vegas mostly have the San Francisco 49ers 4.5-point favorites over the Ravens, amid expectations this could be the heaviest-bet title game ever.

"It's a monster matchup, brother versus brother," William Hill oddsmaker Jimmy Vaccaro said. "I believe it will top last year's Super Bowl handle and could go higher."

Some sports books didn't wait until the clock ran out in the Ravens win. At the LVH sports book, a line favoring the 49ers by 4.5 points was put up just before the 2-minute warning.

"We've got money coming in as we speak, it looks like it will be good on both sides," said LVH book director Jay Kornegay. "These teams mirror each other, but the 49ers are a bit more sexy now than the Ravens."
