Super Bowl 2013 picks and predictions for Ravens vs. 49ers: Analysts split on winner

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

In terms of analyst predictions, there is no clear favorite in Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers.

With Super Bowl XLVII between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens nearing, media analysts still seem to be largely split in predicting a champion of the NFL.

Over at ESPN, their 12-man panel of prognosticators are heavily leaning towards the 49ers, with nine guys choosing them to win. Mike Golic, Ron Jaworski and Tom Jackson were the only ones to side with Baltimore.

CBSSports.com's eight-man panel, however, flips in the opposite direction, with seven analysts seeing a Ravens victory in New Orleans, La., on Sunday evening. Dave Richard was the lone person to go with San Francisco.
