Super Bowl 48, which takes place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is just two days away. As of this morning (according to Covers.com), the Denver Broncos are a two point favorite over the Seattle Seahawks with the over/under sitting at 48.5. Kick-off is slated for just before 6:30 p.m. EST with temperatures expected to be around 40 degrees at kick-off (according to Yahoo.com). Many fans believe (and stats back it up) that this year’s Super Bowl truly features the two best teams in all of the NFL. ESPN.com has posted a very good read backing up that theory, which can be viewed by clicking here.
Fox Sports.com has a nice piece up listing some of the better prop bets for Sunday’s game. Those bets include how many times Peyton Manning says “Omaha”, how low the temperature will get during the game, and will the first touchdown of the game come from a passing play or running play. You can check out the piece here.
Finally, I feel this game will be very close and come down to which team commits the least penalties. I’m going with Denver 28, Seattle 27 (Seattle with the points and the over).
