Super Bowl 2013 Picks: Will Ravens or 49ers emerge as champs?

USA TODAY Sports

The day is finally here. After a week of deer antler spray and questions about gay teammates... It's actually time to play some football.

It's Ravens vs 49ers, so who ya got?!

The 49ers opened as favorites and have been at -3.5 for most of the week. However, late week sentiment in their favor has pushed the line to -4. The over/under on the games is 47.5.

Overall, the consensus pick in terms of money has been the Ravens, which is where 53% of the bets have come in. The AccuScore simulator is no help in this one as after 10,000 simulations it averaged out to a 22-22 tie. However, the simulator does favor Baltimore, giving them 51.1% chance of winning.

Number Fire did a little better favoring the Niners 24.7-22.2.

San Fran was 11-7 against the spread this year, while the Ravens were 9-9-1. Over the last 10 games however, the Ravens are 5-4-1 and the Niners are 6-4.

As for the over/under, the simulators say take under. They give a 53.6% of the score coming in under 47.5.

So that's all the info... who ya got? I'm taking the 49ers 27-17.
