With just several hours remaining before the world’s most viewed sporting spectacle, the NFL Super Bowl, we are tipping the New England Patriots to win the Grand Prize, for the following reasons.
In Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan and Danny Amendola, the Patriots have three old, slow wide receivers who nonetheless seem to be uncover able, even by the Denver Broncos highly touted “No Fly Zone” secondary core.
Quarterback Tom Brady, at 39 years of age, is absolutely no threat to run with the ball, yet when the Patriots need a big play to preserve possession or stay in contention, he somehow manages to get his old legs to do what needs to be done.
The Patriots’ defense, despite being anonymous for the most part, even amongst themselves, features interchangeable parts that led the NFL in fewest points allowed during the season and the playoffs.
New England Head Coach Bill Belichick, who is most often seen staring vacantly into the distance, has an able staff in defensive guru Matt Patricia and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels who seem to know in advance the exact moves their opponents will follow.
The betting line is still a narrow three-point advantage to the Patriots, but our prediction of the final score is New England 30, Atlanta 10.
