2014 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Super Bowl

With all the talent and hype going into Sunday's contest, competition is sure to be ultra fierce. (Animal Planet)

The Super Bowl is underway. The top-ranked Broncos offense takes on the top-ranked Seahawks defense. Wily veteran Peyton Manning takes on Sophomore sensation Russell Wilson. The game is full of storylines, and we’re here to bring you our selections for how the big game will turn out.

A blowout offense and stifling defense are averaging out our guesses for touchdown totals, while passing yards are predicted to be down somewhat. Naturally, quarterbacks have an advantage in MVP voting because they’re quarterbacks, though Denver’s receiving corps and both running games are pretty good too.

In addition to adding an MVP category to our predictions, all point values are doubled!! Otherwise, scoring is similar to before:

  • Picking the winner of the game is worth four points.
  • Picking the total number of touchdowns scored by both teams combined is worth two points if guessed to within one, or four points if guessed exactly right.
  • Picking the yards thrown for by the game’s top passer (one top-throwing quarterback only) is worth two points if guessed to within 50, or four points if guessed to within 10, or a whopping ten points if guessed exactly right.
  • Picking the Super Bowl MVP is worth two points.

So now that that’s out of the way, complete picks are below, and be sure to check back upon the Super Bowl’s completion for final results and standings.
