Super Bowl Prediction

By: Grant Poarch


Can you believe it? Super Bowl Sunday is upon us. This season has gone by rapidly and I will certainly miss it during the offseason. That being said, today is the greatest day in the league year for a reason. It seems like the two best teams in the league made it to the end. Although there is some boredom that comes with that, there is surely a classic upon us this evening. 

With the Super Bowl comes one of the biggest betting days of the year. I read somewhere earlier this week that it is estimated that a staggering $24.1 billion dollars will be wagered on the game. So, I’m going to do what I can to help the public make some money because we all know Vegas is going to be getting a large portion of the pie. 

In the conference championship games I had good predictions. I went 2-0 on the money line and 1-1 on the spread. That brings my overall record on the year to 174-110 on the money line and 150-135 on the spread. With that said, fade me at your own risk and tail me in your inevitable benefit.

2/11: San Francisco 49ers (-1.5) vs. Kansas City Chiefs, O/U 47.5, 6:30PM EST, CBS

I know there is a ton of disappointment that there isn’t a different matchup in the Super Bowl. Regardless, is that going to stop you from watching? Surely it’s not going to stop me.

As for the game itself, San Francisco seems like the better team on paper but Kansas City is the media darling. So, should we bet with our heads or with our hearts? 

The public is all over the Chiefs. The media wants K.C. to win more than anything. So, call me a madman for taking the 49ers.

If San Francisco can allow themselves to not fall behind the way they have the past two games, they should be okay. There’s no stopping Mahomes but a few key stops at the beginning could lead to Mr. Irrelevant hoisting the Lombardi at the end of the night. 

Speaking of Brock Purdy, I have been thoroughly impressed with his play as of late. When things looked rough against Green Bay and Detroit, he stood up to the challenge. It certainly helps that he has the weapons that he does, but his growth as a quarterback has been marvelous. 

That being said, his play is going to be the key to the game. I don’t think he’s going to be able to outplay Mahomes but he will hold his own and lean on the offensive artillery to win this one.

Call me crazy but I’m fading Mahomes, the media, and the Swifties in this one. 

Prediction: San Francisco wins, San Francisco covers -1.5
