NFL: Super Bowl LI-NRG Stadium Views Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

For Super Bowl 51 between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, Americans are expected to bet $4.7 billion, of which $4.56 billion of it will be done illegally [source]. No bets are necessary here, though, we we continue to build our DBN trophy case of champions. This is the sixth year we are doing an official Pick'em.

Leave your predictions for the following in the comments:

  1. Which team will win?
  2. What is the final score?
  3. Which player will be awarded MVP?
  4. Tiebreaker: What color will the liquid be that is poured on the winning coach?
    (Color Choices = Orange, Blue, Clear, Yellow, Red, Lime/Green, Purple)

Note: The winner will be determined by the order above, with more weight going to the first, then second, and then third criteria. In other words, if person #1 gets the winning team and final score correct and person #2 gets the winning team and MVP correct, person #1 will be deemed the winner.

Previous winners:

Super Bowl 50: Congrats to last year's winner, Full Bred Dawg, for correctly picking the Denver Broncos and Von Miller as the Super Bowl MVP. He also correctly predicted orange as the color liquid to be poured on winning coach Gary Kubiak. Nobody got the final score correct, and there were several people who were all around 10-11 combined points from an accurate score.

Super Bowl XLIX: troy145, for correctly picking the New England Patriots and predicted the final score exactly at 28-24. He did not pick Tom Brady as the MVP, but a shout out goes to Full Bred Dawg, who picked the Patriots, a score of 27-24, and Brady as the MVP.

Super Bowl XLVIII: Red-Right-88, for correctly picking the Seattle Seahawks and was the closest to the final score, predicting 31-13. No one correctly picked Malcolm Smith as the MVP.

Super Bowl XLVII: Alirenee, for correctly picking the Baltimore Ravens, MVP Joe Flacco, and was only off by four points with a predicted final score of 31-30.

Super Bowl XLVI: Brownie's Year, for correctly picking the New York Giants, MVP Eli Manning, and was only off by one point with a predicted final score of 20-17.
