vegas tabs 49ers early favorites

Little brother is the betting favorite in Super Bowl XLVII.

Jim Harbaugh's 49ers are five-point favorites over John Harbaugh's Baltimore Ravens, according to the opening line established by the Las Vegas Sports Consultants.

That line is given to the sports books at the Las Vegas casinos, which adjust the number based on the flow of money. The goal is to draw equal action on both sides (favorite and underdog).

The over/under is 49.5.

The betting favorite has won six of the past nine Super Bowls.

The only underdogs to win in that span are the New York Giants (2008, 2012) and New Orleans (2010).
