View Updated Super Bowl XLVIII Odds

Oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv have posted an over/under of 47 for what the Nielsen Rating will be for this year's Super Bowl. That number comes with standard -110 odds, meaning that whether you choose the over or the under to bet on, you'll receive $100 for every $110 that you wager.

Last year's Super Bowl drew a 46.4 with an average number of homes being 52,998. In 2012 the Nielsen Rating was 47.1, which was one of the highest ratings ever for a Super Bowl. In 2011 the rating was 46, in 2010 it was a 45 and in 2009 it was a 42. Believe it or not, the highest rating ever for a Super Bowl was in 1982 when the 49ers and Bengals drew a 49.1. (These figures are according to Nielsen.com.)

How many average viewers will the game draw? The over/under has been set at 112 at Bovada.lv, with the over carrying odds of -140 and the under carrying EVEN odds. Thus, if you wager on the over you'd have to bet $140 to win $100 and if you took the under, you'd receive $100 for every $100 that you wagered.

Which region will have the higher local TV rating? Denver is favored at -130 while Seattle is the "underdog" in this prop bet at -110.

Also, what will happen with the Dow Jones the day after the Super Bowl? The odds actually paint a good picture for the stock market. According to oddsmakers from Bovada.lv, the odds for the market being up are -140 while the odds for the market being down are EVEN money.

Finally, who will United States President Barack Obama pick to win the game? Both the Seahawks and Broncos have odds of -120, respectively. With Obama being a Bears fan, it's hard to read his mind at this point.
