    First site I’ve seen where the majority of analysts picked the Broncos. Sure hope you’re right!

    • crosseyedlemon

      It appeared that Football Baby was doing everything he could to avoid picking either team so that’s probably not a favorable sign that this game will be a classic.

    • Thomas Bell

      What? 4 picked Denver vs 7 Carolina.

  • crosseyedlemon

    So are Clay, Elsayed,McGuiness and Stockwell undecided or do they find the Gatorade color prop more appealing?

  • Thomas Bell

    They should have studied their own statistics a little closer.
