How To Bet On Super Bowl XLVII – The Harbaugh Bowl Brings a lot of Drama

Baltimore Ravens @ San Francisco 49ers – Sunday February 3, 2013 6:30PM EST

The NFL betting experts have never seen anything like it before in the history of the league. There has never been two brothers coaching against each other in an NFL playoff game, ever. Now Jim Harbaugh takes his San Francisco 49ers to New Orleans to face his older brother John Harbaugh and the Baltimore Ravens. These are two good football teams with two very capable head coaches, but it still may put a crimp in next year’s Thanksgiving dinner after it is all said and done.

The online sports betting experts were shocked when former Ravens’ offensive coordinator Cam Cameron called John Harbaugh’s decision to fire Cameron “a brilliant move.” In retrospect, Cameron may be right. As soon as Harbaugh made the move and put Jim Caldwell in as the offensive coordinator, the Baltimore offense snapped to life. It isn’t that Caldwell is a great coordinator. It has more to do with the fact that if John Harbaugh would fire someone he regarded as highly as Cam Cameron just to win games, then no one in the organization was safe. The message was received loud and clear, and the result is a trip to the Super Bowl.

Why the 49ers Will Win

The “Smith brothers” patrol the middle of the San Francisco 49ers’ defensive line and pose all kinds of problems for the Baltimore offensive line. The sportsbook experts know that Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco is a pocket passer, and the Smith brothers are very good at collapsing pockets. Teams are also finding it exceedingly difficult to game plan for second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick. When you add in the strong San Francisco offensive line and running back Frank Gore, you have a recipe for a 49ers’ Super Bowl win.

Why the Ravens Will Win

Throughout the playoffs, the media has made a huge deal about this being linebacker Ray Lewis’ last season. The emotion generated by Lewis is said to be fueling the Ravens’ play in these playoffs. The truth is that the Baltimore Ravens had no idea how good it really was until it started to push itself. The Baltimore defense dominated the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots. The Baltimore secondary shut down Tom Brady and the New England passing game. Joe Flacco and the Baltimore offense has shown more life in the last two weeks that it has all season. This Baltimore team will be tough to beat.

The Bottom Line

With bold decisions made at various points throughout the season, both Harbaugh brothers have shown that they will do whatever it takes to win. But Jim Harbaugh brings a San Francisco 49ers team to this Super Bowl that is unpredictable, talented and confident. The Ravens has had an impressive run in these playoffs, but it ends unsuccessfully in the Superdome in Super Bowl XLVII.

Pick: San Francisco 49ers
