The biggest Super Bowl point spread was in Superbowl III, when the Colts were favored over the Jets by 20 at game time.

According to Robert Walker, the Director of the Race and Sports Book at MGM Mirage in Vegas., the highest anyone can find is Steelers-Bucs in 1976. Pittsburgh was defending Super Bowl champ, the Bucs were first-year expansion babies who finished 0-14. The line was 24. The Steelers won, 42-0.

Sports bettor RJ Bell, who runs a betting Web site, said his research shows that the biggest point spread since 1980 came in 1993 when San Francisco was a 23-point favorite over Cincinnati, a game the 49ers won just 21-8. During that time, there have been only five games with a point spread of more than 20 points.

Assuming their dominance continues, look for a possible high 20's spread for the New England Patriots vs. NY Jets and/or Miami Dolphins in December 2007. (Their spread against the Eagles on 11/25/07 looks to be around 22.)
