I have enjoyed this season making picks for those of you who read this. It’s always been a hobby of mine and this gives me the opportunity to combine that hobby with my love to type. And man, do I love to type. It’s pretty ironic that I love twitter so much because it’s a struggle on most every tweet to stay within the character limit. I would think that with a 540 character limit though.
Thanks everyone for visiting and soon we will be working on our NFL Mock Draft to get us ready for who might be next seasons Doug Martin or Alfred Morris. Just kidding, nobody saw him coming. I mean Evan Royster was a hot commodity starting in like in the 6th rounds of drafting. Maybe those people I think are crazy by drafting a defense in that spot are on to something. Just kidding, that’s a terrible strategy.
Since this is it for a while, let’s get some television house-cleaning out of the way. The Walking Dead returns in February so you still have time to either start the series or just re-watch how awesome season 3 unfolded so far. Then at the end of March, Game of Thrones returns for the third season. There is absolutely no reason to not have a dress-up party for this occasion. I know I will. Remember – what is dead may never die.
Below I have picks for the side and total as well as multiple prop bets. Should keep us occupied for the whole game at least while everyone else is really pumped up about squares.
On to the picks!
Playoff record (12-7)
SAN FRANCISCO -3.5 vs. Ravens – Dance with the one that brought ya. I have been on the Niners all season so no reason to have a change of heart now. I like Colin K. to run wild on a Ravens defense that has struggled to contain anyone all year. Despite their showing against Atlanta, the Niners have superior defensive talent here. The real wildcards will be Crabtree and Davis who should be the difference makers. Also, I just plain don’t like the Ravens and hope they lose. Bad. Like the rest of America, I just hope Anthony Dixon gets into the game to make a play.
SAN FRANCISCO/ATLANTA OVER 47 – On the turf in the Dome, no reason this shouldn’t go over the total. In a playoffs that has been dominated by the OVER, I don’t see the Ravens with the ability to hold the Niners down. I honestly see a 31-17 type game and the Ravens scoring coming late. But hey, they have surprised me all season so I’m sure they will be up 14-0 after the first three minutes. Plus, no one wants to take the UNDER at a Super Bowl party. It’s not cool.
