The road teams took care of business in the conference championships as the Ravens and 49ers will battle in Super Bowl XLVII. Of course the big story will revolve around the Harbaugh brothers facing off, while the Super Bowl returns to New Orleans for the first time since 2002.

Favorites compiled an 8-2 SU and 7-3 ATS record throughout this postseason, as Baltimore picked up the only two outright underdog wins at Denver and New England. Following a 4-0 run to the 'under' during Wild Card weekend, the 'over' cashed in all four Divisional Playoff games. In the conference championships, the NFC finished 'over' the total, while the AFC cashed the 'under.'

Super Bowl XLVII from New Orleans (2/3/13)


Line: 49ers -4.5 (49)

Movement: This line opened up at -5, but quickly moved down to 4.5 at William Hill and Caesar's. Some other shops in the desert have dropped to 4. One of the bigger offshore outfits, CRIS, is holding steady at 5.

The total dipped from 49.5 to 49 at several outlets, while going to 48.5 at Caesar's and even down to 48 at the LVH.

Betting Notes: The Ravens and 49ers didn't meet in the regular season, but Baltimore held off San Francisco on Thanksgiving night in 2011. Baltimore held off San Francisco, 16-6 as 3 ½-point favorites, while game finished 'under' the total of 40.

The Ravens didn't play a game inside a dome this season, unless you count their blowout loss at Houston's Reliant Stadium. The 49ers played five games indoors and one of those victories came at the Superdome over the Saints in Week 12, as the Niners returned two interceptions for touchdowns in a 31-21 triumph.

Super Bowl Betting Notes:

-- The 49ers are playing in their first Super Bowl since 1994.

-- San Francisco owns a 5-0 SU/4-1 ATS record in Super Bowls, while being listed as a favorite each time.

-- The Ravens are playing in their first Super Bowl since 2000, as Baltimore is participating in its second Super Bowl in franchise history.

-- In their lone Super Bowl appearance, the Ravens routed the Giants, 34-7 to cash as three-point favorites and finish 'over' the total of 33.

-- The NFC has won four of the last five Super Bowls, while the 'under' is 6-2 the last eight Super Bowls.
