I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on what is going on with the betting line this superbowl and its overall implications on the game. This line since it came out has intrigued me. Now id like to preface this by saying that I'm not an expert by any stretch and all opinions are welcome. Apparently it started with NE favored by 2.5 but didn't budge even with the Gronk injury. In fact the line right now has moved up by half a point to 3. From my basic understanding of this the line moves up when people are betting the favorite in this case the Patriots but I'm sure I read somewhere that most of the betting public is with the Giants... So what gives? Could the book makers know something we don't? What would be the benefit of structuring the betting this way?
