Super Bowl LI Picks

Do you have a few questions about who to pick for the Super Bowl? Football and sports betting have both been American traditions for a long time, so what better game to bet on than the Super Bowl? Making your Super Bowl pick, however, may be a little harder than you think. Although you may think that you have a 50/50 chance of winning, there are a lot of different factors you need to consider in order to make a wise Super Bowl pick for your money. You may be tempted to make your Super Bowl pick based on how much you like one team over the other; however, unless you are betting between friends for a minimal amount of money, then that is usually not the best strategy to take.

Super Bowl LI Picks from Mike Jones

Predicting multiple Super Bowl winners year after year, NFL expert handicapper Mike "The Picker" Jones has returned with his 2017 Super Bowl LI prediction! For the past three seasons, Mike predicted the Seattle Seahawks winning the Superbowl outright for 2014 and 2015. This worked great for him in 2014, however, as we know the Hawks could not hold back the Patriots in the final quarter during Super Bowl XLIX. Last year Mike's Superbowl prediction was the Denver Broncos beating the Carolina Panthers 27-24. As +6 underdogs heading into Super Bowl 50, Mike was spot on with predicting the Broncos winning outright.

For the 2016-2017 NFL betting season, Mike's early (preseason wk1) Superbowl prediction shows the New York Giants beating the Indianapolis Colts outright (too early to pick scoring spreads). Now that the Colts can not make the Playoffs, Mike's Superbowl 51 predictions have the Atlanta Falcons beating the New England Patriots 38-35.

One of the first things you should look at when making your Super Bowl pick is how well each team did in the playoffs. Of course they won, but whom did they beat and how well did those teams play? Another great question is: did they have home field advantage the whole way through or did they get in on road wins? You should also find out if there are any big-name injuries going into the game. The loss of a high profile player could mean a loss when it really counts.

If you have decided to bet a large amount of money on your Super Bowl pick and are in it to win, you may want to dig a little deeper into the regular season and see how each team did in the last half of their season, especially on the road. Did they make the big plays when it really mattered? If they had a terrible loss could it be because there was an injury that is no longer an issue? Or did they have their second and third string players in. Look into each team's stats and see what they defend best against. If they are facing a team that likes to run the ball, find out how well they did defending the run against other great teams. Furthermore, since the game could always be determined by a field goal, check to see how far each team's longest successful field goals have been and what the weather conditions were like for those games.

Finding the answers to questions such as these may help you better predict who might win the big game before you place money on a Super Bowl pick. If you only bet what you can afford to lose and research the opposing teams thoroughly enough to make an educated guess, then all you can do is leave the rest up to the two lucky ball clubs. After all, even if you do make the wrong Super Bowl pick, at least you got a little more excitement out of the game.
