Super Bowl 2013 point spread: 49ers favored over Ravens

The San Francisco 49ers made it through the NFC bracket, and now they are the favorite to take home the Lombardi Trophy.

Someone from the University of Georgia is guaranteed to earn a 2013 Super Bowl ring on Feb. 3, as both the Ravens and 49ers employ UGA alums, but Demarcus Dobbs is the Bulldog with the best odds to bring home a title. Dobbs is currently injured, but that won't prevent him from getting a ring if the 49ers prevail.

San Francisco opened as 5-point favorites over Baltimore, which lists Georgia's Dannell Ellerbe and Deangelo Tyson on its roster. Early money has been coming in on the Ravens side, as the line has been trimmed down to 3½ in some places, according to the Super Bowl odds on Odds Shark.

The Ravens also give Georgia Tech fans someone to root for, as running back Anthony Allen backs up Ray Rice. Allen is hoping to see some action and help Baltimore do its part to reach the total, which opened at 49. Bettors aren't convinced the two teams will put up that many points, and the over/under has dropped down to 47½ some places.

If Baltimore continues to play defense like it did against the Patriots in the AFC title game, those who decided to bet the under may be spot on. Ellerbe will certainly be trying his best to ensure the 49ers help earn those folks some money.
