49ers Favourites, But Flood Of Sentimental Money For Ravens
The Super Bowl takes place on Sunday and William Hill can report a wave of sentimental money pouring in for the Baltimore Ravens (6/4), with the favourites San Francisco largely friendless in the last 48hrs.
It will come as no great surprise that man of the moment, Ray Lewis is being well backed to be named MVP at 10/1.
"It is not often that punters get sentimental but there is a real momentum behind Baltimore and we are seeing a real grass roots gamble. It would seem that many of our customers now believe that it is destiny for the Baltimore Ravens & Ray Lewis to win this year's Super Bowl." Said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
William Hill are predicting that record viewing figures for Lewis' swansong and it is 11/8 that an average of more than 112m US viewers watch the Super Bowl. With two brothers coaching opposite sides in the Super Bowl for the first time it is 20/1 that they refuse to shake hands or embrace at the end of the game.
