Following a long, hard season in the NFL, it has come down to two sides ready to compete with each other for the 2014 Super Bowl. The Denver Broncos will be delighted to have made it to the Super Bowl, having flattered to deceive so often in the past, while the Seattle Seahawks are trying to win the Super Bowl for the first time in their history. It’s fascinating from both a football and sports betting point of view, and the bookies see it as being a close contest just now, so which of these sides is the best pick?
The Broncos are the odds-on favourites, and 5/6 on them shows just how strong a lineup they possess – including superstar quarterback Peyton Manning – so surely they are the obvious choice? Well they probably are the obvious one, but that doesn’t necessarily make them the best. Seattle are on 23/20 with bookmakers, so they are hardly a rank outsider for this – and they came through both the tough NFC Conference and a playoff against the San Francisco 49ers to get this far. A bet on them to overcome the weight of history and Denver to win for the first time is more risky than gambling on the Broncos (or an NFL themed slot machine game at http://www.jackpotcity.co.uk) but could just win you the payout.
