Super Bowl LI is coming up tonight in a match-up between the Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots. Both teams have solid defenses but this year’s Super Bowl promises to be an exciting high scoring affair between one of the highest scoring offenses of all time (The Falcons) and the very explosive Patriots.
According to the sports betting industry the “over/under” for the game is 59 points, the highest ever. The Patriots are favored by 3 points and are led by veteran Quarterback Tom Brady, who is trying to cement his legacy as the game’s greatest quarterbacks.
They will have a hard time against Atlanta. The Falcons are led by Matt Ryan, a graduate of Boston College and this year’s NFL MVP. Ryan is trying to lead the Falcons to their first Super Bowl win in their 2nd Super Bowl. The Patriots are in their record 9th big game trying to win a record 5th Super Bowl.
I’m predicting a high scoring game. If Atlanta gets some pressure on Tom Brady, they will have a really good shot at winning. Additionally, if Matt Ryan can get the ball into the hands of Julio Jones, their all-world wide receiver enough, Atlanta will be looking at its first Super Bowl Championship. However, if the Patriots give Brady time to throw like they did against the Steelers in the AFC Championship game, the Patriots will have no trouble against the Falcons.
Final Score Prediction: Patriots 44, Falcons 31.
