NEW ORLEANS, LA (The Spread) – In less than 10 hours the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens will battle in Super Bowl XLVII. Let's preview the NFL title game.

View 2013 Super Bowl Odds

ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the 49ers are currently 4-point favorites over the Ravens, while the over/under total is sitting at 47.5 points. San Francisco is also a -165 money line favorite while Baltimore is +145 on the ML. The Niners opened as 4.5-point favorites while the total opened at 48.5, but both have been bet down over the last two weeks. That said, some online books are offering San Francisco at -3.5 and/or Baltimore at +4.5.

TRENDS: Latest NFL trends indicate that the Ravens are 4-0 against the spread in their last four playoff games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games overall and 4-1 ATS in their last five games versus a team with a winning record. The 49ers, meanwhile, are 5-1 ATS in their last six games versus a team with a winning record and 4-1 ATS in their last five games on fieldturf. The under is also 4-1 in Baltimore's last five playoff games, but the over is 6-0 in San Francisco's last six games overall. Super Bowl favorites taking on opponents coming off back-to-back straight up and ATS wins are just 13-10 straight up and 7-14-2 against the number.

INJURY REPORT: Fourteen Baltimore and 12 San Francisco players are listed as probable, but none are in danger of missing the game. The biggest concern for the Ravens is linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle), who said he's still dealing with a fair amount of pain. But he reportedly looked sharp in practice earlier this week and is now participating without a limp so he'll be ready tonight. For San Francisco, Justin Smith says his triceps is 50-percent torn and that he'll need offseason surgery to repair the injury. But he's been effective in his previous two games so the injury isn't a major concern heading into the game.

PUBLIC BETTING: Of the wagers currently placed on tonight's game, 54% of public bettors favor the Ravens +4.

MVP ODDS: According to Bovada.lv, Colin Kaepernick is favored to win this year's Super Bowl MVP at 8/5 odds, while Joe Flacco is 11/4 and Frank Gore is 7/1. Ray Lewis has 15/2 odds, Ray Rice is 12/1 and Michael Crabtree is 14/1. Some of the mid-range long shots include Anquan Boldin at 16/1, Vernon Davis at 18/1, and Torrey Smith at 20/1.

GAME INFO: Kickoff is set for 6:30PM ET from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. Alicia Keys will sing the National anthem, Beyonce is the halftime performer and CBS will cover the game on TV. Jim Nantz, Phil Simms, Steve Tasker and Solomon Wilcots will be a part of the coverage.
