While there was a belief that the heavyweights may have waited to bet on the Seahawks for today’s big game, it doesn’t appear to be happening.

There was a brief period on Friday morning when some of the bigger houses moved the line from Denver -2 to Denver -1½ but it was short lived.

In fact, from that point on, it seems that the favoured Broncos have received the bulk of the bets, having moved to 2½ at some of the notable sportsbooks.

Scott K, lines manager at thegreek.com, informs us that “the weather may have something to do with the late Denver money coming in. Many thought that poor weather would aid the Seahawks more than the Broncos but now that it seems that weather may not be a factor, the bettors seem to be favouring Denver.”
