Betting expert consensus says 49ers win plus cover January 29, 2013 3:10 AM by GT Staff

EDITOR’S NOTE: GT invited some of the “experts” to contribute their Super Bowl selections. The vote went 9-5 for San Francisco to cover the 3½ point line. We’ll see late Sunday night who can brag and who can hide.

SAN FRANCISCO -3½

Joe Porrello (Cannery, GT Bookies Battle champion): 49ers, 28-21. A lot of people should be “Kaepernicking” after the game.

Ken Miller (Cantor Gaming): 49ers: 27-21. I’m going to take SF based on the scrambling ability of Kaepernick. The last two teams the Ravens played featured Manning and Brady, who are pocket QB passers and pose zero threat of running the ball. Not so SB Sunday.

Bob Scucci (Orleans): 49ers, 24-17. I felt the NFC was the tougher, more physical conference all year. While the Ravens have certainly shown they can beat anyone I think the 49ers come out on top.

RJ Bell (Pregame.com): 49ers, 27-21: Niners have been a leading “yards per play” team all season. Baltimore was below average away from home most of the season.

Scott Pritchard (champion sports handicapper): 49ers, 27-17. Niners have the better team on both sides of the ball. Ravens have had a great run, but the journey ends. See the cashier.

Tony Nevill (Treasure Island): 49ers: 28-14: I opened the game Niners -6. I noticed the Ravens pass defense, net yards, rushing defense, red zone offense and defense were all regressing. Niners are peaking at the right time.

JT The Brick (FOX national radio host): 49ers, 27-23. Frank Gore gains 125 yards and the Niners defense gets a big pick of Flacco late.

Ken Thomson (SportsXradio): 49ers, 31-24: We have seen two versions of the Kaepernick read option – run and pass. Baltimore has no clue what’s next.

Brady Kannon (past LVH SuperContest winner): 49ers, 27-23. SF is slightly better than the Ravens in every phase of the game. On a neutral field, an opponent of equal strength to the Patriots ought to be a 4.75 point favorite. San Francisco is laying only 3.5.

Mark Mayer (GT sports editor): 49ers, 35-17. Four of the last five SB’s decided by 6 points or less, but never three straight. 30 of 46 won by 10 or more. There are no Kaepernicks, RG3’s or Wilsons in the AFC.

BALTIMORE +3½

Jay Kornegay (LVH): Ravens, 23-20. SF commits one more turnover than Baltimore. Should be a great, close game.

Jay Rood (MGM Resorts Intl): 49ers, 17-16. “The K-factor” pulls out a last minute drive for a TD, mostly with his legs.

Chuck Esposito (Sunset Station): Ravens, 24-23. They were a dropped pass away from playing in the big game last year and have a QB who seems to play his best in the post-season. Relish underdog role.

Ed Malinowski (Stratosphere): Ravens, 27-23: Anyone who can go into New England and beat Brady and Belichick can beat anyone. Joe Flacco won’t turn the ball over to allow SF points to make another dramatic comeback.

Mark Dufty (Jerry’s Nugget): Ravens, 23-20. I think these two teams are mirror images of one another.

Consensus: 10-5 ATS for 49ers.
