Super_Bowl_XLVII_logoThis Sunday, the Atlanta Falcons will host the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game, with each team vying for a spot in the biggest game of all: the Super Bowl. I put all my poker chips on the 49ers, so it will be interesting to see how they do on the road after their win at home against the Pack last week.

Then it will be the AFC’s turn, with the New England Patriots hosting the Baltimore Ravens in Foxboro. The Patriots are the favorites according to the odds-makers, but the Ravens may be the emotional favorites, especially with the inspiring return of Ray Lewis.

Be the first to predict the winners and the Super Bowl Champ and you’ll win $100 worth of retail merchandise from the Texas Poker Store. Providing, of course, that somebody hasn’t already predicted the competing teams and ultimate winners . And for $100 you can get some pretty cool poker gifts.

Hey everyone!  Now that what many call the best weekend of pro football — the divisional playoffs — are over, we know that it will be the Baltimore Ravens vs. the New England Patriots playing for the AFC Championship  and the Atlanta Falcons battling the San Francisco 49’ers for the NFC Championship. That means there’s still time to make your prediction before the AFC and NFC championship games on January 20th.

As we told you, now that the odds are distinctly in your favor, there’s no longer a chance at the $200 gift prize. But you still have the opportunity to be tTPSchipshe first to correctly predict the two Super Bowl contenders, and the Super Bowl Champs for $100 worth of retail merchandise from the Texas Poker Store. Might as well take a shot and make a prediction. I’m putting my poker chips on the 49’ers taking it all after watching Colin Kaepernick run around like Johnny Football last week, but your bet is the one that counts!

Super Bowl XLVI - Giants vs Patriots - Game On

Super Bowl XLVI - Giants vs PatriotsToday is your last chance to win a prize from The Texas Poker Store by predicting the final score in Super Bowl XLVI. Of course, on the east coast, this is a classic match-up with football fans taking the game very seriously. New York vs. New England, just like the Yankees vs. Boston or the Knicks vs. the Celtics, has always been a deeply personal, and often bitter rivalry.

In the rest of the country, however, it’s more about betting on who you think is going to win the big game . Will it be the Giants, with Eli Manning, who has been phenomenal in the playoffs, throwing to so many reliable targets that it will be very hard for New England’s pass defense to keep up? It might be Victor Cruz, Hakeem Nicks, Mario Manningham . . . they are all likely to catch an Eli pass since he’s been throwing between 40 to more than 50 passes per game with remarkable accuracy.

On the other hand, Tom Brady is a supremely talented quarterback who doesn’t like losing, especially to the Giants for the second time in a season. . . or in their second Super Bowl match-up. With two weeks off,  Coach Belichick and the Patriots will have devised a way to protect Brady against the G-men’s pass rush, and Brady will be able to get the ball to his tight ends, Gronkowski and Hernandez.

The Patriots are 3-point favorites to win the game, with a lot of that riding on the revenge factor. But what do you think? Be the first to predict the final score before the game begins and if your prediction comes closest to the final score you’ll win a prize from the Texas Poker Store.

Super Bowl XLVI - Giants vs PatriotsIt’s getting closer and closer to Super Bowl Sunday. If I were a betting man (which I’m not, except when playing poker) I’d pick the Giants to beat the Patriots because Eli has been unstoppable on 3rd down conversions and in the 4th quarter of games when it really counts. I also like the Giant’s “D” in the clutch.

Of course, at this point it’s anyone’s guess. The two teams are evenly matched and Tom Brady has a chip on his shoulder from the last time these two teams faced off.
