While many scoff at the oddsmakers in Las Vegas, they aren't building those really nice casinos because they lose money.
They have the best oddsmakers in the sporting world working for them and it is interesting to see them post their latest odds for teams to win Super Bowl XLVIII.
The favorite to win Super Bowl XLVIII is the San Francisco 49ers at 6/1. The 49ers are followed by the Denver Broncos at 15/2, the New England Patriots 8/1, the Seattle Seahawks 9/1, the Atlanta Falcons and the Green Bay Packers 12/1, the Houston Texans 18/1, along with the New Orleans Saints at 18/1.
The defending Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens are 20/1, along with the New York Giants.
One wager that really caught my eye was the over/under on sacks in 2013 for some of the top rookie pass rushers.
Detroit Lions defensive end Ziggy Ansah total to wager on for sacks in 2013 is 4 1/2.
Former LSU standout and now Cleveland Browns outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo's number is 3.
Former Georgia All-SEC and All-American outside linebacker Jarvis Jones, who was selected one pick later than the New Orleans Saints picked Texas safety Kenny Vaccaro by the Pittsburgh Steelers, his number is 8.
