With the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens advancing to the 2013 Super Bowl we can now begin to speculate who is going to win Super Bowl 47. The 49ers and Colin Kaepernick were the first team to get into the Super Bowl this year after winning the NFC Championship game over the Atlanta Falcons. Then in the late game the Baltimore Ravens defeated the New England Patriots in the AFC Championship game. As soon as the Ravens secured their Super Bowl XLVII berth Las Vegas Super Bowl betting odds posted the 49ers as -3.5 point favorites over the Ravens.
Then come early Monday morning the Super Bowl betting line moved to 4.5 points, before leveling off at 5 points by late Monday afternoon according to Las Vegas Super Bowl betting odds and online sportsbook wagering lines. Pretty crazy to think that rookie quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers are 5 point favorites over Ray Lewis and the Baltimore Ravens in Super Bowl online betting odds. Regardless of what the betting line is come Sunday, February 3rd, 2013 in New Orleans, the 49ers and Ravens are going to give us one exciting Super Bowl game to watch.
The last time the Baltimore Ravens went to the Super Bowl was back in 2001, but that was before the days of Joe Flacco. Now, Joe Flacco will be the veteran quarterback in Super Bowl 47 when matched up against 49ers rookie Colin Kaepernick. Many NFL fans have forgotten that head coaches John and Jim Harbaugh have faced one another before becoming the first brothers in NFL history to coach against one another as head coaches. Last season’s Thanksgiving Day game in 2011 pitted the brothers against each other in 2011 and John who is the older Harbaugh brother beat the 49ers by a score of 16-6. In the rematch the 49ers go in as the favorites which is surprising considering their last matchup.
