The opening line in Vegas had the Seahawks favored by two points, but shortly after the opening lines were posted, the bettors put their money heavy on Peyton Manning and the Broncos getting the points, which has now caused the line to shift.
About 90% of the early betting was on the Broncos, which caused the line to shift from Seahawks -2 to the Broncos -2.5. Over the last six Super Bowls the favorite is 1-5 against the spread (ATS), while the Broncos are 20-9 over their last 29 games ATS.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
The 76ers have waived JaVale McGee.
McGee, oddly enough, came out and said he wanted to be a "mentor" to the young players on the Sixers after arriving at the trade deadline. Just a few weeks late, McGee will be packing his bags, hoping he picks up with a contender. The seven-footer reportedly will not have to give back any money in a buyout, and is owed the remainder of his $11.2 million contract, along with $12 million next year. Analysis: Spencer Silva
