KUSA - Vegas odds show the Broncos are two point favorites to win the Super Bowl over the Seahawks right now.

This after Seattle opened as a 1-point favorite on Sunday. The early money is definitely on Denver.

The guy who oversees betting at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas says that could change. But he doesn't expect that will happen.

"Most likely Denver will stay the favorite throughout," said Johnny Avello, Executive Director of Race & Sports Operations at Wynn Las Vegas. "When Peyton Manning's going for the championship - there's going to be a lot of backers for Peyton."

Avello says Sunday someone even placed a six figure bet. He didn't say what team it was for.

He said Nevada takes in roughly $90 million in Super Bowl wagers. He expects it to be around $100 million this year.

More than 90 percent of bets are placed on Super Bowl weekend.
