Seattle +3 over Denver
Right after the Conference Championship games I was very confident I would pick Denver to win the Super Bowl in two weeks. Peyton Manning looked great against New England and Seattle were very fortunate to beat San Francisco. However, the more I thought about I started to lean towards Seattle for my game pick. They have a great defense that will make sure to pressure Peyton Manning. The colder weather favors the Seahawks and Peyton Manning will struggle if there is strong wind. Also the Broncos have key injuries on defense including linebacker Von Miller and corner back Chris Harris.
I see this game being low scoring to start. Both teams will play conservatively and then in the second half we’ll see some scoring. I like Seattle to win straight up and the over.
Seattle 27, Denver 24
MVP: Russell Wilson
