Last Year's Picks of the Pole (2013-2014)
Super Bowl

DOUBLE PLAY: Denver--Seattle UNDER 47 1/2

   
As for the game itself, I  lean ever so slightly to  the Seahawks.  I believe in Super Bowl history that suggests that when really top flight defenses reach this game they very often win. But Denver's a formidable team with major offensive weapons. I do believe also that this game will be low scoring early as neither team wants to make a mistake that crucial and sets a tone for the game. Lets go for the UNDER and cheers for  running clocks and lots of punter and field goal kicker appearances. Good luck.
