Make your Super Bowl predictions

The Super Bowl starts at 6:30 p.m. Eastern tonight. Of course, the programming around the big game has been running all day. I can never keep straight which networks are broadcasting the games. Tonight it's Fox, which means all the Joe Buck you can handle, which isn't very much.

In case you forget that there was an actual football game being played, there is. The Green Bay Packers and Pittsburgh Steelers are battling for small market domination, but since this is the NFL and not pro baseball, those teams are about as good as it gets, despite not residing in New York or Boston. For the betting types out there, you don't have much of a spread to work with. Green Bay is favored by anywhere from 2.5 to 3 points.

And if you've really got compulsive issues with gambling, there's lots more to bet on, including the length of the national anthem and how many times the Fox braodcasters will mention Brett Favre. By the way, the over/under for Favre mentions is 2.5 which would seem to indicate that oddsmakers are ridiculously out of touch with national sports media.

Finally, let's sort out predictions and favorites, since fans of the St. Louis Rams don't likely have a horse in the race. I'm a terrible predictions-maker, but I'm brave enough to give it shot. This looks like defensive matchup to me, with the first and second best defenses, in terms of points allowed, playing for the whole enchilada. I say Green Bay wins by a score of 17-14. Bold, I know. Make your predictions in the comments, and we'll honor the swamis among you in a later post.
