    Lynch will make more of an impact against the Broncos' D than Moreno will make on the Seahawks' D, though.

    Hoping Manning buttf***s the legion of performance enhancing drugs.

    This is the matchup I wanted all along. Should be epic.

    Unless the SB gets moved to Seattle, I'll take Denver.

    The Broncos will stack the box, whether it's a blizzard or 80 degrees. It's up to Russell Wilson if the Seahawks win that SB.

    This. Seattle on the road is a very average team. The Texans should have beat them!

    Yesterday, I read somewhere that if its Broncos vs. Seahawks, Vegas would have it at Seahawks -3. Not sure how accurate that prediction is.

    As far as the game is concerned, I'll have my money on the Broncos.

    EDIT: Opening line is Broncos -3.

    Denver offense>>>>Seattle Offense

    Seattle defense>>>>>>>>Denver's defense

    Seattle's defense>Denver's offense

    Seattle offense>>>Denver's defense

    Coaching equal

    These are my reasons for why Seattle will win. They will make enough plays down the stretch to win. If Denver's gonna have a chance, they have to abuse them on the ground and with Welker in the slot...bc their WR's(DThomas and Eric Decker) are essentially gonna be shut down.

    Im sure based on experience, the line is gonna favor the Broncos at -1.5 or -2; just because its Peyton. This will be my biggest bet for the dog if the Broncos are gonna be favorite. The level of competition and the teams that the Seahawks were able to beat, shows me that they are the team to beat even though most of the average public might be jumping on the Bronco bandwagon.

    I've never understood betting.

    Does DEN being -3 mean that, if one bets on them, the Broncos will have to win by 3 or more, for the person betting to win money?

    Broncos and I don't think it will be real close. Denver wins by two TD's or more. Peyton has dreamed of this moment, he will make the best of it.

    Just how cold will the first Super Bowl in a cold-weather stadium really be?


    Pretty c-c-c-old.

    A game-time temperature in the upper 20s is likely on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., predicts AccuWeather meteorologist Bernie Rayno. Winds are likely to be from the northwest at roughly 10-20 mph, he says, making it feel as if it's in the upper teens to near 20 degrees.

    Yes. Or if you take Seattle, it really means you're taking the points... meaning if Denver wins by only 2, you still win.

    Hard to pick a winner for this game.

    Great offense vs. Great defense.

    Really comes down to Seattle's O vs. Denver's D. A few guys are out for both sides -- will be interesting to see who plays.

    The line for betting is close too -- going to wait till next week to see how the line moves before I put any money down.

    If you bet on Denver, take the final score and subtract 3 points from Denver. If the Broncos still win the game, then you win the bet. If it ends in a tie (Broncos win by 3), then it's a draw. In other words, to win the bet, Broncos need to win by 4.

    How do you figure this? The Denver D just showed it can pretty much stop Patriots O...which is much better than Seattle's offense.
