    Manning vs. Wilson

    Who will have more Passing Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Russell Wilson  SEA QB 80.5
    Peyton Manning DEN QB -80.5
     
    Manning broke the records for most passing yards and touchdowns in a single season but Richard Sherman and the Seattle defense are No. 1 in defensive passing efficiency. We are projecting Manning to throw for 6.7 yards-per-pass in the Super Bowl, well below his season average of 8.3 yards-per-pass.
     
    Projected Yards: Manning 241.3, Wilson 221.8

    Pick: Wilson +80.5

    Manning vs. Wilson
     
    Who will have more Completions in the game? Team Position Spread
    Russell Wilson  SEA QB 9.5
    Peyton Manning DEN QB -9.5

    The edge in this prop bet is the advantage that Seattle’s pass offense has on Denver’s pass defense. The Broncos are below league average in sack rate (6.3%) and interception rate (2.8%). The Broncos do not have an active player in their secondary that grades as an above average player at his position.
     
    Projected Completions: Manning 22.7, Wilson 16.5

    Pick: Wilson +9.5

    Lynch vs. Moreno
     
    Who will have more Rushing Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Marshawn Lynch SEA RB -25.5
    Knowshon Moreno DEN RB 25.5

    Denver is No. 9 in defensive rushing efficiency; the Broncos allowed just 3.9 yards-per-carry in the regular season. We anticipate Moreno to outgain Lynch on a per play basis.
     
    Projected Yards: Lynch 83.6, Moreno 63.9

    Pick: Moreno +25.5

    Wilson vs. Ball
     
    Who will have more Rushing Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Russell Wilson  SEA QB 2.5
    Montee Ball DEN RB -2.5

    Montee Ball averaged 4.7 yards-per-carry in the regular season but over Denver’s last ten games, including the playoffs, his average has increased to 5.8 yards-per-carry.
     
    Projected Yards: Wilson 27.8, Ball 37.8

    Pick: Ball -2.5

    Kearse vs. Caldwell
     
    Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Jermaine Kearse SEA WR -10.5
    Andre Caldwell DEN WR 10.5

    Caldwell is an afterthought in one of the greatest passing offenses in league history; he was targeted one or fewer times in twelve of Denver’s 18 games this season. Kearse was targeted at least three times in eight games this season averaging more than 31 yards receiving in those games.
     
    Projected Yards: Kearse 34.9, Caldwell 6.7

    Pick: Kearse -10.5

    Tate vs. Thomas
     
    Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Golden Tate SEA WR 25.5
    Demaryius Thomas DEN WR -25.5

    Demaryius Thomas is Manning’s best weapon but Richard Sherman most likely will be covering Thomas for most of the game. Sherman was first among all cornerbacks in opposing passer ratings this season per Pro Football Focus. Manning likes to look for mismatches in the opposing secondary, challenging Sherman would be a mistake.
     
    Projected Yards: Tate 51.1, Thomas 62.9

    Pick: Tate +25.5

    Baldwin vs. Welker
     
    Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Doug Baldwin SEA WR 12.5
    Wes Welker DEN WR -12.5

    This is another play on the Seattle passing defense. This is the one of two props where we project the player getting points to outgain his opponent.
     
    Projected Yards: Welker 42.8, Baldwin 48.8

    Pick: Baldwin +12.5

    Lynch vs. Moreno
     
    Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game? Team Position Spread
    Marshawn Lynch SEA RB 9.5
    Knowshon Moreno DEN RB -9.5

    Moreno was 5th among all running backs with 548 yards receiving and he had a career high 60 receptions this season. It probably isn’t a surprise to you given our ranking of Seattle's pass defense but the Seahawks were 2nd in DVOA vs. running backs this season.
     
    Projected Yards: Lynch 18.6, Moreno 14.4

    Pick: Lynch +9.5

    03/27/2017 Highlight: With the start of MLB right around the corner, we can use our ResultsFinder tool to uncover some past success in baseball. April has historically been a great month for the Predictalator, as evidenced by last season's outstanding 41-22 (65.1%) record on all "normal" or better ML, RL, and O/U plays. A $50 bettor would have profited a whopping $1,002 using our recommended wager sizes in April. MLB season win totals have also been extremely fruitful in the history of this site, with the Predictalator producing an outstanding 54-19 (74.0%) record on all playable win totals.

    March Madness is winding down and it was another solid month for the Predictalator. There were a total of 69 "normal" or better college hoops positions (sides and totals) in the month of March, and the Predictalator posted a strong 42-27 (60.9%) record, generating $704 in total profits. NBA has also followed suit with "normal" or better positions winning at a 58.1% clip since the beginning of February, and at a 57.9% clip for March.

    NHL profits continue to roll right along as well, as the Predictalator has cashed in on nine of 12 "normal" or better positions in March. The Predictalator has now amassed an incredible 45-28 (61.6%) on all "normal" or better money lines, puck lines, and totals this season, totaling $499 in total profits for a ?$50 bettor.
