Who will have more Passing Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Joe Flacco BAL QB -19.5 -115
Colin Kaepernick SF QB 19.5 -115

Joe Flacco has averaged 284 yards in three postseason games this year but those yards came against the Colts (21st pass defense), Patriots (29th pass defense) and a Denver defense that gave up 110 yards in the last minute of regulation and two overtimes. Projected yards: Flacco 215.7, Kaepernick 231.6.

Pick: Kaepernick +19.5

Who will have more Completions in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Joe Flacco BAL QB -3 -115
Colin Kaepernick SF QB 3 -115

In the five games that the Ravens lost this year and Joe Flacco played the entire game, Flacco averaged 36 passing attempts. In those same five games Flacco has completed on average 19 passes. In all of those games the Ravens were passing because they were behind, just like we project they will be on Sunday. Projected completions: Flacco 20.9, Kaepernick 17.2.

Pick: Flacco -3

Who will have more Rushing Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Ray Rice BAL RB -17.5 -115
Colin Kaepernick SF QB 17.5 -115

If you throw out Kaepernick's 181-yard performance against the Packers, he has averaged 36 yards per game in his nine starts. In Ray Rice's last 9 full games, he has averaged 80.8 yards per game. Projected yards: Rice 64.2, Kaepernick 38.

Pick: Rice -17.5

Who will have more Rushing Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Frank Gore SF RB -30.5 -115
Colin Kaepernick SF QB 30.5 -115

We project Gore to carry the ball 18.8 times; in games this season that Gore has carried the ball 18+ times he has averaged 82.8 yards. Expect a heavy dose of Gore. Projected yards: Gore 89.2, Kaepernick 38.

Pick: Gore -30.5

Who will have more Rushing Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Bernard Pierce BAL RB -5.5 -115
LaMichael James SF RB 5.5 -115

This is a battle between two complimentary backs that have proven themselves as efficient rushers. While we do project Pierce to have more carries, 7.5 compared to 6, we project James to be more efficient with the advantage that the 49ers rush offense has over the Ravens rush defense. Projected yards: Pierce 33.8, James 30.4.

Pick: James + 5.5

Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Michael Crabtree SF WR -45.5 -115
Ray Rice BAL RB 45.5 -115

Michael Crabtree is Colin Kaepernick's favorite target; Crabtree has averaged 84.1 yards per game since Kaepernick became the starter. Rice's participation in the passing game has been inconsistent this season with the Ravens. Projected yards: Crabtree 77.3, Rice 25.9.

Pick: Crabtree -45.5

Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Randy Moss SF WR -4.5 -115
Ray Rice BAL RB 4.5 -115

In addition to claiming to be the G.O.A.T., Moss also stated his displeasure with his offensive role during Super Bowl Media Day. Moss has only averaged 3.5 targets in the last ten games. In those same ten games Moss is averaging 27 receiving yards. Projected yards: Moss 28.8, Rice 25.9.

Pick: Rice +4.5

Who will have more Receiving Yards in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Vernon Davis SF TE -17.5 -115
Ray Rice BAL RB 17.5 -115

Though Davis has been utilized as a run-blocker most of this season he did break out against the Falcons for 106 yards. If the Ravens play soft pass coverage on him expect Davis to have another nice receiving day. Projected yards: Davis 46.3, Rice 25.9.

Pick: Davis -17.5

Who will have more Receptions in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Dennis Pitta BAL TE Pick -115
Vernon Davis SF TE Pick -115

Davis has averaged 2.2 receptions in his last ten games and has only been over 2 receptions in three of those ten games. Pitta has averaged 3.4 receptions in his last ten games and is targeted at a much higher rate than Davis. Projected receptions: Pitta 4.1, Davis 3.2.

Pick: Pitta

Who will have more Receptions in the game?        
Player Team Position Spread Odds
Anquan Boldin BAL WR -2.5 -115
Randy Moss SF WR 2.5 -115

Boldin led the Ravens in both targets (112) and receptions (65) this season. In three postseason games Boldin is averaging 9 targets and 5 receptions. Projected receptions: Boldin 4.9, Moss 1.7.

Pick: Boldin -2.5

The Predictalator

The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players (playing or not playing/injured), coaches, officials, fans (home field advantage) and weather in each game.

7/21/2014 Highlight: Using the ResultsFinder for the last two weekends July 11th - 20th (since the All-Star break fell during last week), one could find that all playable over/under MLB plays went 26-17 (61% O/U).

The Predictalator plays every game 50,000 times before it's actually played. This provides us the ability to assign probabilities to the likelihood of just about any outcome occurring in any contest including straight-up, against-the-spread and over/under winners of each game.
