Place Your Bets: Super Bowl

If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe, or those rogues in New Jersey and get your bet on for the NFL weekend!

San Francisco (-3.5) vs. Baltimore, Sunday, 5:30 p.m. — So, the line on this has moved to 4, but for the sake of preventing a push, we'll stick with the previous line of 3.5. This is a game I've gone back and forth on, really for the past two weeks. But one thing keeps bringing me back to the 49ers, and that's the fact that when you watch the two teams, the 49ers just seem to be the better team. There are plenty of reasons to like the Ravens and the points, as well, but the 49ers don't win close games very often, and while everyone knows the Ravens are on a roll right now, the 49ers are too. I love what Joe Flacco has done throughout the playoffs, already owning the most postseason road victories in NFL history, but the 49ers should win this game with their running game, led by Frank Gore, who might be a safe bet for the game's MVP — if you like all those side bets.

So there you go, folks. One last game, and it just had to be the toughest one yet to pick. For that matter, we had to get an extra week to go back and forth on it. But I'm going with the 49ers. Take it or leave it.

2012 playoffs: 6-4. 2012 season: 53-41.
