LAS VEGAS (AP)
Sports books in Nevada made Green Bay a slight favorite in the Super Bowl over Pittsburgh on Sunday night based on the Packers' popularity among bettors during the past few weeks.




The Glantz-Culver line made the Packers an early 2 1/2-point favorite and put the total score at 45 1/2 points for the Feb. 6 game in Arlington, Texas.

Jay Kornegay, executive director of the race and sports book at the Las Vegas Hilton, said his book made the Packers a 2-point favorite and quickly moved the line to 2 1/2 points as bettors gambled on Green Bay.

''That steam engine is still rolling,'' Kornegay said. ''It's going to be a very interesting Super Bowl because you have two heavyweights as far as popularity goes.''

Oddsmaker Andrew Patterson of Las Vegas Sports Consultants said the firm, which provides betting lines to most casinos in Nevada, made the Packers a 1 1/2-point favorite to try to encourage action on both teams.

''I think it's a good number, but a lot of us feel it's a little high,'' Patterson said.

The Super Bowl is the most popular betting game of the year for Nevada casinos, which won almost $6.9 million on last year's game as bettors wagered $82.7 million.

That was up slightly from 2009, and Kornegay said he expects wagers to be up again this year because Green Bay and Pittsburgh have had strong followings.

Pittsburgh is always popular among bettors, and Patterson said that even though Green Bay was a No. 6 seed going into the playoffs, they started the season with the fifth-tightest odds among all NFL teams to win the title.




Both Pittsburgh and Green Bay got off to quick starts in their respective conference championship games on Sunday, then had to stave off rallies.

Kornegay said that even though the games were similar, Green Bay bettors weren't likely to be discouraged because they still won their bets.

''Even though they didn't have the flash and the charm that they had the first couple weeks, they still were rewarded by a cover,'' he said. ''They cashed, so they will continue to support them.''

I like 2.5, but I'm leary of the current O/U.

It needs to move a few points up or down.

Well Kurt you should be able to tell since I was talking about the SB and Pro Bowl Lines......AND that National Holiday I mentiond on that other thread about the new chainsaw lol

A Seabird just flew down my way for a visit and now he is flying west back to his nest cheerstoyou


Now watch the Pro Bowl and see if Peyton can add to his TD Pro Bowl stats and maybe throw one to Regge Wayne this time.

THEN we can switch to the Super Bowl........and yes of course I am looking for fancy stuff to use on the SB thread that messes with Cravns dialup just like last years SB laughing
