Another interesting bet is a simple one: margin of victory. It's never easy to predict who will win and how much they will win by, but the safest best is to keep the margin of victory small.
The last two Super Bowl winners have won by four and six points, respectively, with only one winner in the past five years winning by double digits or more (New Orleans Saints in Super Bowl XLIV).

I've already mentioned that I like the Ravens in this matchup, but as far as the margin of victory is concerned, I like them to win by six. The last two Super Bowls have been decided by a combined 10 points, an average of five, which leads me to believe the Ravens win a closer game.
It just won't be quite as close as many, including the oddsmakers, think it will be.
