The Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers will battle for the Lombardi Trophy on Sunday, February 3rd at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana. The opening Super Bowl Line 2013 has Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers listed as a -4 against the spread favorite and the game total set at 47.5 points. Should San Francisco, indeed, win it all, it would mark its sixth Super Bowl victory in six championship game appearances.
The San Francisco 49ers did what everyone expected them to do yesterday, dispatching the Atlanta Falcons to earn the franchise’s sixth Super Bowl appearance. The Niners were not as dominant as many anticipated, though, as they trailed 17-0 midway through the second quarter and were out-gained 477 yards to 373 by the Falcons in the 28-24 win. Despite San Francisco’s narrow escape from the Georgia Dome, Jim Harbaugh is expected to lead his troops past his older brother, John Harbaugh, and the Baltimore Ravens.
The Ravens, who were the least favored team to win Super Bowl XLVII (+700 odds) heading into yesterday’s conference championship games, stunned the heavily favored New England Patriots 28-13 at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. New England amassed 428 yards to Baltimore’s 356, but three turnovers and numerous other mistakes on the part of the Patriots (dropped passes, untimely penalties, etc.) resulted in a double digit win for Joe Flacco and company.
Super Bowl Sunday will mark the second meeting between the Harbaugh brothers on the NFL gridiron. The Ravens won the first battle last season, limiting an Alex Smith led Niners offense to 12 first downs and 170 total yards in a 16-6 victory at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore.
