SB XLVII Prop Wagering: Ravens vs 49ers Longest Touchdown

As the biggest day on the North American sports betting calendar draws closer, today we take at look at the proposition wagering options being offered on the big board at the online sportsbook.

There are just ten more sleeps until Super Bowl XLVII as the San Francisco 49ers get ready to clash with the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, February 3, 2013, from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, LA.

Baltimore: Rice, Smith, and Jones are speedy TD weapons

When Baltimore replaced their offensive coordinator, after Week 10 during the NFL 2012 regular season, the Ravens suddenly morphed from a predictable plodding offense to an explosive attack that’s averaging 30 PPG over their last six contests. QB Joe Flacco has a cannon for an arm, while RB Ray Rice, WR Torrey Smith, and WR Jacoby Jones are speedy weapons in the Ravens arsenal.

San Francisco: Kaepernick and Crabtree lead sneaky fast 49ers attack

Looking at the San Francisco playmakers, we find a toned down but sneaky fast list of players who are capable of taking it to the house on a long scoring play. Rookie QB Colin Kaepernick leads the 49ers attack as he’s a dual threat to run or pass for a long TD score. WR Micheal Crabtree and TE Vernon Davis are Kaepernick’s favorite targets in the Niners effective passing attack.

Super Bowl XLVII Prop Betting Prediction: Longest TD Scored favors Baltimore

In the past, the “longest touchdown scored” prop bet is a wagering option that has treated us well. Checking the betting board at the sportsbook, we find the 49ers as somewhat surprise favorites as the Niners are posted at -120 to the score the longest TD in SB XVLII. Baltimore gets a dime line on this proposition wager as the Ravens come in with -110 betting odds.

During the NFC Championship game, the 49ers secondary was constantly burned by Falcons WR Julio Jones and Roddy White. We have a good feeling that Flacco will launch a rocket TD score to either Torrey Smith or Jacoby Jones so we’ll back the Ravens to score the longest TD in SB XVLII.
