Super Bowl XLVI Betting Pick
This year the 45th NFL Super Bowl will be played at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. I think it is safe to say we will not be seeing the Colts take to their home field on February 5th, but the question is who will make it to the big stage.
The current favourite to win the Super Bowl are on the Green Bay Packers with odds of +200. With out a doubt this team will make it to the playoffs but there journey to the Super Bowl will not be an easy with some very strong defensive teams to surely be in their way. Turning to betting odds the New England Patriots are the next favourite to win the Super Bowl they payout 6-1. The Baltimore Ravens New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers round up the top 5 teams according to Vegas, a bet on these teams pays out 9-1.
Some notable teams that could have playoff implications are the San Fransico 49er’s, New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals. It will be a tough battle for the Giants and 49er’s to make it into the payoffs as the NFC division is so competitive but they payout very nicely and they are sitting pretty in the standings at the moment.
Super Bowl Prediction AFC & NFC
In the AFC I think the Baltimore Ravnes will come out of it all, they have a great defence and Joe Flacco has proven to be a very good quarterback. The Ravens have beat division rival Pittsburgh twice this season so a good finish to the regular season should give them home field advantage. Odds for the Ravens to win the AFC are +350 currently and pay out 9/1 to win the Super Bowl.
The Packers are definitely looking like the best team in the NFL at the moment and they are my NFC pick. Aaron Rodgers and company are to versatile on offence and no one has been able to find a way to shut them down. Their defence could do with some improvement, but as long as they put up more points that the other team they wont have a problem. Odds for the Packers to win the NFC are 1/1 and that seems like a pretty certain win.
Super Bowl Pick
I think the Ravens are an underrated team this season, they have blown out some very good teams but have also played down to their opponents, losing to the Jaguars and barley beating the Cardinals. If any defence can shut down the Packers I think it will be the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens also have the offensive weapons with a good running and passing game. My pick to win Super Bowl 45 is on the Baltimore Ravens!
