2016 NFL: Super Bowl LI Bettor’s Guide
This Super Bowl will be intriguing from several standpoints, but the bottom line is if the officials stay out of the way and let the players play, that intrigue will come to fruition. Otherwise, it will be an eyesore to watch, much like the AFC Championship was for the aforementioned reasons.
Atlanta Falcons vs. New England Patriots

My Call: ATL +3
Over/Under: Over 58
There isn’t much that needs to be said here. League’s best offense, and the league’s best points against defense. Although most of that was garnered against subpar quarterbacks and bad teams, for New England.
Bottom line, if you believe the officials stay out of the way, you take the Falcons win. If you believe the officials will swing the game (because we know there’s no way it gets swung in Atlanta’s favor), you take New England to win.
The Super Bowl is too big of a game to have officials swing openly swing them, so we’re not taking New England here.
