Super Bowl XLVII: The big prize at stake
Who will win the Super Bowl? It's one of the hardest questions to answer in the NFL this season with two evenly matched teams squaring off in New Orleans.
But never fear, we've rounded up some of our very best experts to give you a heads up and point you in the right direction, along with a tip for MVP which you can take straight to the bookies!
The Baltimore Ravens have been playing inspired football and can get it done. Two reasons - the deep pass from Flacco against that secondary and also Jacoby Jones can hurt the 49ers special teams' defence which is one of the worst in the league.
MVP: If Baltimore wins you've got to give it to Ray Lewis I hope - let's put it like this: anybody but the quarterback, I'm tired of quarterbacks winning this thing and I'm happy for whoever gets the MVP.
I predict that the 49ers will win 27-24. This will be a physical game but both offences are good enough to get their points.
MVP: Will be Colin Kaepernick... They always give it to the QB so he only has to be half-decent to get the award. An outside bet for MVP? Vernon Davis.
Colin Kaepernick finds a defence he can't unlock consistently and Joe Flacco finds Torrey Smith, Dennis Pitta and Anquan Boldin for three key touchdowns as Ray Lewis rides off into the NFL sunset as a Super Bowl winner.
MVP: Joe Flacco.
Baltimore will score a late touchdown to close the gap to four but it won't be enough.
MVP: Colin Kaepernick. Ray Lewis will cry. A lot.
This is so tough to call, both teams are so well matched up, especially on defence, and it could go either way, but I just think the Niners will edge it. Kaepernick has been unshakable so far so I'll back him to keep it going and throw two TDs plus run in another.
MVP: Vernon Davis will have a big game but Kaepernick will be the man of the moment.
