Super Bowl 47 Pick: Ravens vs 49ers

Super Bowl 47 has the unique story of two brothers leading their teams on each side lines as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers, at 6:30 PM ET at the Mercedes Benz Super Dome.

The line has the Niners at -3.5 and the over and under is set at 47.

“I am going to be neutral in the game,” Jackie Harbaugh said. “I know one is going to win and one is going to lose, but I would really like to end in a tie. Can the NFL do that?”

The Ravens are looking for their second Super Bowl in franchise history.  Their game plan invloves getting to Colin Kaepernick.

“We’re going to have to keep him inside and in front of our defense,” John Harbaugh told the Ravens’ official website. “We’re not going to be able to run past him. He’s fully capable of putting 200 yards on you in a second.”

“He’s been through this so much, he’s a singularly focused individual,” John Harbaugh said about Ray Lewis. “As far as football, it’s not even a factor for us. It’s too bad it’s something that gets so much play.”

San Francisco looks for their sixth Super Bowl as with that tie the Pittsburgh Steelers. “I like reading a lot of history … I guess it’s pretty neat,” John H. said about facing his brother. “But is it really going to be written about? It’s not exactly like Churchill and Roosevelt or anything. It’s pretty cool, but that’s as far as it goes.”

MTS Pick: 49ers -3.5.
