Super Bowl XLVIIThis coming Sunday, February 3, the Baltimore Ravens will meet the San Francisco 49ers on the Gridiron of Super Bowl XLVII. Originally, we had asked you to predict who would be the last two teams standing and who would be the ultimate Super Bowl XLVII Champions to win a prize worth $200. However, since all predictions made prior to the NFC-AFC Playoffs included either Denver or New England in the Super Bowl, to say nothing of all the predictions of teams that never made it past the divisional playoffs , no one was eligible for the $200 prize..

We gave you a second chance after the playoffs to win a $100 prize. Unfortunately, only one of you correctly predicted that the 49ers would battle the Ravens and further predicted that San Francisco would take home the trophy.. We will see…and if you’re right, we will gladly reward you with the prize of $100 worth of Texas Poker Store merchandise.

Super_Bowl_XLVII_logoOK, everyone. We have the teams for the 47th Super Bowl. As you probably know, they are the San Francisco 49ers vs the Baltimore Ravens. Now that all the cards are on the table, the question remains; who will be the ultimate Super Bowl XLVII Champions? Will it be Joe Flacco strong arming it all the way home or will Colin Kaepernick blast it through.

Among all of you who put in your predictions, unfortunately there is only one whose prediction is still in the running for $100 worth of poker gifts from the Texas Poker Store. Jim Slater predicted the two contenders: 49ers vs Ravens. We’ll see if he’s right with his final prediction of a 49ers win on February 3, 2013.
