Super Bowl Sunday has arrived and is ready to go, see picks below!

Matt Sherman
San Francisco -3.5 vs. Baltimore
49ers win 27-21; Hitting over of 47.5 with Colin Kaepernick winning MVP

Matt’s Take:
I expect some of the usual Super Bowl early game jitters from both QBs. I do think Kaepernick will settle in and break off a big run along the way, with his offensive line giving him plenty of protection to make a few big passes along the way. Ray Lewis will cry again but this time with losing tears.

Mike Orzechowski

Baltimore +3.5 vs. San Francisco
Ravens win 34-21; Hitting over of 47.5 with Joe Flacco winning MVP

Mike’s Take:
The Ravens appear to be a team of destiny.  After a poor finish to the regular season they’ve really hit their stride during the course of the postseason.  The outstanding play of Joe Flacco along with his offensive weapons couldn’t gel at a better time.  Sometimes it just your year and 2012/2013 appears to be the Ravens.

Scott Boutcher

Baltimore +3.5 vs. San Francisco
49ers win 27-24; Hitting over of 47.5 with Vernon Davis winning MVP

Scott’s Take:
Both defenses will play well, but San Fran’s pair of Smith’s will get to Flacco and force a turnover. The Ravens secondary will slow down Crabtree, but will have trouble with Davis, who will have a big night.

Bill Fucich

San Francisco -3.5 vs. Baltimore
49ers win; Hitting over of 47.5 with Frank Gore winning MVP

Bill’s Take:
St. Ray Lewis of Baltimore’s career ends in a loss, most likely he still will make it all about him. Jim Harbaugh and the Niners have their day by pounding the Ravens front, as Frank Gore (surprisingly) collects MVP.

Michael Bedard

San Francisco -3.5 vs. Baltimore
Ravens win 24-17; Staying under the total of 47.5 with Joe Flacco winning MVP

Glenn Coyle

Baltimore +3.5 vs. San Francisco
49ers win 24-20; Staying under the total of 47.5 with Colin Kaepernick winning MVP

Glenn’s Take:
Head Coach Jim Harbaugh will be vindicated on Sunday when his young QB Colin Kaepernick leads the 49ers to another Super Bowl title. An aging Ravens defense will not be able to contain Kaepernick or the 49ers punishing run game.
