Ravens 16/1 for Super Bowl XLVIII - Alicia Keys to sing?
The Baltimore Ravens defied odds of 33/1 to win the Super bowl and William Hill have chalked them up as 16/1 shots for back to back victories. Beaten finalists the San Francisco 49ers are joint 7/1 favourites with the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII.
"There were quite a few bets on the Ravens at 33/1 and they were also heavily backed on the 'day of destiny'. It will be interesting to see if they manage another victory," said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.
