With the start of the NFL season, comes flurry of football speculation.
How will the extra games affect the season? Will injuries continue to dominate the league? Which team has the gumption to win it all?
Wade McElwain & Ryan Cull break it down with their Super Bowl picks for the 2022 game.
Yes, it is WAY to early to make such a bold prediction this early in the season, but that’s the fun in the NFL.
Take a punt based on some scraps of knowledge, stats, and mix it in with intuition and a dash of American network garble, and you have some half baked picks.
With LA being the host city for the February game, there is always a desire for one of the two Los Angeles teams to make it in front of the home crowd.
Sure, most of the crowd is made up of bloated execs and ass kissers, but there’s always those 10000 die hard fans allowed in to rally up the Chargers/ Rams.
Ryan is very cagey in his predictions thus far due to the potential implications of future ridicule from fantasy football chums.
One thing is clear though, is that this kid from Brantford, Ontario is sauced and baked in Buffalo Bills pride, and he believes this is the year that they make it to the Super Bowl.
Josh Allen is a ‘beast’, they have a ‘solid’ wide receiver group, and his praise is muted enough not to curse the potential gauntlet of AFC adversaries they need to overcome to get there.
Ryan has the Buffalo Bills win win the AFC Championship and move on to the Super Bowl.
Meeting them in the big show will be…the Los Angeles Rams.
That’s right, Ryan has drank the Matt Staffy Juice and thinks that the Rams with their bright new rocket, speedy sets of WR hands, and monster D will be the champs of the division atop the other imitators.
Buffalo Bills vs LA Rams
The AFC will be a blood bath, and with a relatively healthy group of teams ready to roar, it’s easy to pick a few contenders that have the stones to make it through a long season.
The Bills, Browns, Ravens, Steelers, Titans and Raiders all have the potential to rip it to the finish, but they don’t have the sustainability to endure themselves.
Kansas City has the team, the vision, the drive and the positioning to repeat as Super Bowl visitors, and that’s the pick for the AFC.
The LA Chargers will be plucky and fun to watch, and should be a great team to potentially make it all the way. Sadly, Justin and the team need another year in the grow room before they’re ready to bud.
As far as the NFC goes…it’s the Rams!
Yes, it’s a Los Angeles double set with the same lame pick as Ryan.
The Bucs are good, and they’ll be hot, but everyone will be gunning for them. That gets tedious after a while, just ask Captain America.
Green Bay’s Dream Machine will break down on the side of the road when they realise you can’t power a team on personal ambition and nostalgia.
The Bears will do great. People will be surprised. Justin Fields is a new messiah.
Kansas City Chiefs vs LA Rams
That’s it for our 2022 Super Bowl Picks, hope you can use them.
Sadly, there is no betting sites that are good in the UK to allow us to make those picks, but we thought we would throw those out there.
Who do you have winning it all? Let us know.
