Super Bowl XLVII Updated Odds
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the 49ers are currently 4-point favorites (-105) versus the Ravens (-115), while the over/under total is now sitting at 48 points. Baltimore is also +145 on the moneyline while San Francisco is -165 on the ML.
The 49ers opened as a 4-point favorite and while the line has stayed at 4 at some books like Bovada, it's dropped at other books. For example, at the Las Vegas Hilton the Ravens are now +3.5. The MGM Mirage also has Baltimore as a 3.5-point favorite while the over/under total is now at 47.5. The total opened as high as 51.5 at some books but that has dropped down to 48 or 47.5 at nearly every place now.
In Baltimore, linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle) was the only player not to participate in practice on Thursday. That's a good sign for running back Bernard Pierce (knee) and Anquan Boldin (shoulder), who are also banged up. And even though Ellerbe missed practice, he's in no danger of missing next Sunday's game.
For the 49ers, linebacker Ahmad Brooks (shoulder) did not practice for the second straight day and teammate Aldon Smith (shoulder) was limited again. Neither injury is believed to be serious although San Francisco's pass rush would take a massive hit if both players were to miss the game. As for defensive end Justin Smith, he practiced in full earlier in the week as his triceps injury continues to heal.
