The big day is here.,. it's been 3 years since the Patriots have been in the Super Bowl and it feels like much longer. Maybe that's because they haven't won in 10 years... but I think that changes today .
My official prediction is Patriots 31 Seahawks 23
I don't see the Seahawks scoring more than 25 points unless they get a special teams or defensive TD, which I highly doubt happens. I don't think the defense will be able to get to Tom Brady, and the Patriots should be able to put up at least 28 points.
Other factors that contributed to my prediction:
The Pats have never lost a playoff game with Gronk being fully healthy. He's a game breaker
The Pats are the more motivated team due to #deflategate, #spygate, #haters
The Seahawks played a soft schedule, and they should have lost last week anyway.
This game isn't in Seattle. The Seahawks are much, much better at home.
The Patriots are due
Now, the NFL Prop bets I like the most:
Russell Wilson scores a rushing TD
Marshawn Lynch Over 19 carries
Tim Wright over 0.5 receiving yards
Tom Brady longest rush over 3.5 yards
Yes Patriots convert a 4th down
First score of game: FG
Patriots score over 24.5 points
First TD of game: Gronkowski
Julian Edelman over 6 receptions
The game is a pick em (first time ever in SB) I obviously like the Pats.
