Several Las Vegas sports books have moved the Super Bowl 56 spread from Rams -4 to -4.5, but not necessarily because of cash wagered through the bet windows.

“We’re still settling in and the market was moving up so we headed there with it,” said Las Vegas SuperBook VP Jay Kornegay. “No large wagers yet to push, we just felt -4.5 was where we wanted to be moving forward.

It’s more comforting for the bookmaker to get to the right number after seeing a short amount of betting on the big game, but cash should also be a major consideration to moving off a key number such as 3, 7, or 4.

Station Casinos sports books remain at Rams -4 with VP Jason McCormick saying they were still high on the Bengals which is interesting because their locals clientele usually like the favorite to begin with and then the masses take the underdog on Super Bowl weekend. They are believers of the Joe Burrow legend that is building fast, and the early bettors cannot be swayed.

“I can see getting more Bengals support closer to the game, especially on the money-line,” said Kornegay, who is offering the Bengals at +175 on the money-line along with South Point. “I think we’ll be seeing all these heart-warming stories about the Bengals the next two weeks that’ll entice a rooting angle to the side of the Bengals. You know, Tom Brady retires, and now the Joe Burrow era takes over.”
