I give them credit for taking it to teams like Indy, Denver, and NE in the playoffs, but they were all relatively finesse type teams. The 49ers will smack them in the mouth and it will be over by halftime. An old Ravens defense vs a young, speed-based offense, with a behemoth Oline that averages 6'5" 318lbs on the Superdome turf? No chance. Those AFC playoff teams were tailor-made for the Ravens D to succeed, but they will get dominated on Superbowl Sunday.
SF 49ers -3.5 will look like a joke.
I'd love to see that. Because I hate the Ravens. (Made an exception this past weekend because I hate Brady and NE worse). I think this is going to be close through at least the end of the first half. I like SF in this, but I tend to think it will be a close game. If SF pulls away, it will be in the second half. I think that the SF O-line will start to wear down the Ravens D. I also don't think that B-more is going to be able to consistently cover Vernon Davis. Kaepernick had drawn some criticism for not going to Davis more, but he showed against Atlanta that if his receivers are covered he'll go to Davis.
