Super Bowl spread 2013: 49ers favored to beat Ravens

Chris Graythen

The San Francisco 49ers are loaded with players from Michigan schools, and those guys can now call themselves Super Bowl favorites.

The San Francisco 49ers opened as 5-point favorites over the Baltimore Ravens for the 2013 Super Bowl. Early money has come in for Baltimore, as the line has move down to 3 1/2 at some sites. That line may have many in Michigan pleased, as there are a number of alums from Michigan public universities on San Francisco's roster.

Jonathan Goodwin and Mario Manningham of Michigan (along with head coach Jim Harbaugh), Garret Celek and Trenton Robinson of Michigan State, and Joe Staley of Central Michigan are all on the side of the Super Bowl favorites. Manningham won't get to help his team try and win a title, as he is on injured reserve. However, he will still bring home a ring should the 49ers prevail.

Goodwin, Celek, and Staley will all be trying to help San Francisco do their part to hit the over. The total opened at 49, but the bettors saw that as a little high. It has since moved down to 47 1/2, according to the Super Bowl Odds page on Odds Shark. With the way the Ravens' defense has been playing, and how well San Francisco's has been most of the season, the under might not be a bad pick.
