Live from New Orleans, it has been a crazy week down here literally below sea level. The french quarter has been filled with poor people from Baltimore and gay people from San Francisco. And we all seem to be getting along swimmingly, drinking together and waking up in each others beds.
The over under has come down from 50 while the line has been shifting towards Baltimore since opening at SF -6. Ray Lewis the murder cover-upper is on some weird velvet from deer skull extensions and Randy Moss is pretending to be relevant again.
Kaepernick v Flacco, Harbaugh v Harbaugh, espn v the world, Dan Marino v paternity tests, Roy Fox (of Harbowl fame http://www.breitbart.com/Breitbart-Sports/2013/01/25/NFL-Bullies-Man-Over-Harbowl ) v the NFL and me vs the world.
Actually wait, I have off Monday it will be me vs beer, pizza, wings and dumb commercials, I'm gettin crunked!
I am picking San fran and the points. Baltimore and Joe F are due for a bad game. Kaep barely ran the ball in the NFC C and may choose to run wild against an average Balt defense. The Ravens just simply have the Cheatriots number. I don't give them much credit for that victory.
Also I see a lower scoring affair. The defenses are both average or better neither team has a lot of SB experience and a tight low scoring affair is my expectation. The notion that games in NO are usually ugly also adds to my speculation.
My only concern with picking the 49ers is that they have lost some ugly games, Baltimore has the us against the world mentality and I have an underlying disrespect for Jim Harbaugh. Guy loses his cool and that can cloud judgement. Still I like SF.
Official score picks tomorrow.
