GLENDALE, AZ (The Spread) - We're a little over seven hours before kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX but the line has jumped the fence at most sports books.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Seahawks are now 1-point favorites over the Patriots for today's 6:30PM ET kickoff of Super Bowl XLIX. The total, meanwhile, is sitting at 47 points.

The Seahawks opened as 3-point favorites over the Patriots at the closing of New England's victory over Indianapolis in the AFC Championship Game two weeks ago. But the line dropped immediately and by the end of Championship Sunday, it was sitting as a pick'em at most books.

The line stayed even for roughly 24 hours before many sports books bumped the spread up to -1 in favor of the Patriots. But from Saturday night to Sunday morning, the line jumped the fence and now the Seahawks are favored at most online and Vegas sports books. Clearly over the last 24 hours sports books have seen wiseguy action in favor of Seattle, especially when you consider just under 70% of the public betting action is on New England.

As for the total, it opened as high as 48.5 at some books but has steadily dropped throughout the week and looks to have settled in at 47.
