Super Bowl Sunday
Well folks, the day is here. Lucky for you, I get to tell you my final pick for the last football game of the year. Went 2-0 in the Conference champions picks which puts me at 7-2-1 for the playoffs. Not too shabby. So take a seat, place your bets and drink all the beer you can because it’s Super Bowl Sunday!
Seahawks @ Broncos (-3)– The line moved around a bit this week but it looks like it’s solid at Broncos -3. Big mistake by Vegas. I love, love, love the Seahawks today. I got to watch a good amount of each of these teams this year and I think Seattle is a better overall team. Historically, when you have a great defense against a great offense, the defense has the upper hand and ends up winning. I have no idea why this happens but it does. This game comes down to the Seattle offense against the Broncos defense. People are over looking the loss of the Broncos top D-back Chris Harris way too much. When you are missing your best corner, that’s a huge loss especially when your defense wasn’t that good to begin with. I think Russel Wilson once again will need to play well in order for the Seahawks to win. Marshawn Lynch can’t do it himself, but Wilson needs to be efficient like he has been all year. For the Broncos, they need to protect Peyton. Plain and simple. I’m not sure if this offensive line has seen a defense that can get at the quarterback like the Seahawks can all year. I think that is the difference in this game. Peyton is great when he can sit back and let his receivers get open. There’s no quarterback better. But if you get even just pressure on Peyton he gets very antsy in the pocket because he doesn’t want to get hit and he makes mistakes. He throws bad interceptions which can change this game in a second. I think it is going to be a long day for Peyton and I actually think Percy Harvin might be a huge factor in the outcome of this game.
Tbow’s Pick– Seahawks +3
Final Score– Seahawks 21 Broncos 10
There you have it. Go win some money and I’ll see ya September.
