I recommended the Seahawks last year and I’ll do the same again today. You know the storylines and you know these 2 teams. The public is backing the Pats and I had my sights set on them too last week but it’s best to hold off betting on the big game until the morning of. When the Seahawks are firing on defense, they can stop any quarterback from Peyton to Rodgers and Brady is up next. Kam Chancellor, Richard Sherman, Byron Maxwell and the defense will put a cork on Gronk and limit his production. The rest of the offense cannot be deemed remotely close to what Gronk’s value provides. Get in his way and frustrate Tom Brady all night.
The Pats will take more risks while the Seahawks keep it simple. There isn’t much else to throw out there besides a bunch of numbers that don’t apply to this game. The stats mean nothing now. This is the biggest stage in North America and one team will come out hitting harder and more resilient to the pressures around them. The Seahawks will be more loose and they’ll feed off the fact that America’s darlings are being backed here by the fans and bettors alike. The reigning champs are the better pick here to stay atop the league for another year.
Prop bet of the day: Marshawn Lynch over 19.5 receiving yards. The Patriots got torched by runningbacks through the air this season. I expect that to continue today with Lynch slipping away for a few good catches. It’s good for a 1 unit but remains unofficial.
