Super Bowl odds, Patriots-Seahawks: Close line hopefully means a close game

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

It seems that the oddsmakers aren't wrong very often when they put a line down on a game (and then the money coming in moves it). However it works out, the sportsbooks seem to know what's up.

That's why I'm excited to see such a close line on the 2015 Super Bowl this Sunday between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks. New England is currently a 1-point favorite (depending on where you look) after the Seahawks initially opened as a 2-point favorite.

This line tells me that folks are expecting a close game, which is what most NFL fans are rooting for. There is no Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl this year so I don't have anyone to root against. Thus, I want a close game. I definitely do not want another 43-8 score like we saw last year in the Seahawks-Broncos Super Bowl.

You know Bill Belichick will have a great game plan for this. He will have some tricks up his sleeves to make the Seahawks adjust on the fly. Few teams are better at in-game adjustments than the Patriots. As for the Seahawks, it seems destiny is on their side after watching that NFC Championship game where they inexplicably came back to beat the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks have won eight straight since their November loss to the Chiefs. They're on fire.

UPDATE: Now back to Seattle...
