Super Bowl 47 is just around the corner and we have all dissected this game between San Francisco and Baltimore inside and out. We have looked at the offenses and defense for both teams, player and team props and keys to victory. Having two weeks to look at a game gives us all plenty of time to look at a game. I know I have and in an article tomorrow i will have my totals play for this game, but right know we will look at my top 4 Super Bowl Game Prop Bets.
1. What will happen first for Baltimore -- Touchdown or Punt? -- (Punt -165)
Just like I said in my Niners prop article I expect both teams to be a bit conservative in the first quarter. This usually happens in big games with two solid defenses on the field. The Niners defense is one of the best in the league and should make Baltimore punt before they get a touchdown.
2. Ravens Total Rushing Yards - Under 104
Baltimore will attempt to utilize the running game, but how effective can they be? The Ravens are 11th in rushing the ball, putting up 118.8 ypg, but this Niners defense checks in at 4th vs the run, allowing just 94.2 ypg. San Fran is also 4th in the league in ypa allowed at 3.8. Will be tough for Baltimore to get 100+ yards on the ground in this game.
3. Joe Flacco Touchdown Passes - Under 1.5 (Even)
This game will be all about defense and I just don't see Flacco being able to notch 2 TD passes in this one. The Niners pass defense is 4th in the league and they are 10th in the league in pass touchdowns allowed per game (1.3). Im also expecting a few more FG's than TD's from Baltimore as this should be more of a defensive battle. Look for him to get POSSIBLY one TD pass.
4. Bernard Pierce - Total Rushing Attempts - Over 7 (-165)
Ray Rice is the featured back for the Ravens, but Bernard is also an important part of their offense. The Ravens have use him allot more down the stretch as had 8 or more attempts in 7 of their last 9 games, while also averaging 12.6 rushing attempts per game in their last 5 games. The Ravens will need to mix it up between Rice and Pierce and that gives him an excellent shot at 8+ attempts in this game.
5. Justin Tucker - Total Field Goals Made - Over 1.5 (-130)
Justin Tucker has hit 90% of his FG attempts this year and I see him having at least 3 shots at a FG in this one. The Niners have been solid in the red zone this year and I feel that Baltimore will heve to settle for at least 2 FG's in that zone. I look for him to possibly have 3 FG's in this one.
