We are now just a matter of a couple of days away from Super Bowl LIV. In terms of the odds for the big game, this is the closes one that we have had in quite some time, so it’s no real surprise that people are a little split down the middle when it comes to predicting the winner.
Will it be the Chiefs or the 49ers who hoist the Lombardi Trophy this Sunday? We all have an opinion on the answer to that question, but what do the experts think? We took a look at what the experts are saying on the NFL website and network, so let’s take a deeper dive into those NFL Betting predictions.
NFL Network Experts Picks for Super Bowl LIV
DeAngelo HallThe former Washington Redskins star has a few bold predictions for the big game and has the San Francisco 49ers winning 35-24. Hall believes that the 49ers will get the early lead and control the clock from that point forward.
He also believes that their defense can put some real pressure on Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs. If you are looking to wager on the MVP, Hall believes that Jimmy Garoppolo is a good bet for Super Bowl LIV.
Gregg Rosenthal pick for Super Bowl LIVThe NFL writer is taking an opposite stance to that of Hall. He sees the Super Bowl as a bit of a shootout in the making, with his pick seeing the Chiefs win a close one by a score of 37-34.
While he agrees that the 49ers can control the clock, the big plays of the Chiefs will prove to be the difference, which Rosenthal believes will be more than enough to give Patrick Mahomes the Super Bowl LIV MVP.
Charley Casserly pick for Super Bowl LIVIf you are looking for some serious insight into the NFL, Charley Casserly is one of the people to turn to. Casserly is a veteran writer and reporter who always seems to offer some fantastic takes on the NFL Network.
He sees the 49ers winning a close one by a final score of 28-24, which would see the total go UNDER. He believes that the 49ers D can keep Mahomes under control, plus he likes Jimmy Garoppolo to win the MVP.
David CarrThe former NFL QB also sees the Super Bowl as being a close one and he is also going in favor of the Kansas City Chiefs. Carr, though, thinks that we are going to see a lot of scoring, as he has the Chiefs winning 35-31.
The key to the Chiefs success, in Carr’s opinion, will be the O-Line and their protection of Patrick Mahomes, who the former QB believes will win the sMVP.
Willie McGinest pick for Super Bowl LIVThe former Patriots star is one of the few experts who sees one of the teams winning relatively comfortable. He has the Chiefs downing the 49ers by a score of 34-21.
He is of the belief that the Chiefs offense is just too much to handle, while also believing that Andy Reid will come up with a defensive game plan that will be good enough to shut the 49ers down. McGinest has Patrick Mahomes as his MVP pick.
