Below you will find the picks of over 70 Twins-related people. Be sure to post your predictions in the comments below. Let's get to the picks:
Seth Stohs - Twins Daily
Falcons 37, Patriots 20
This is a tough one. First, I will always root for whoever Tom Brady and the Patriots are playing… But, I also would love to see Roger Goodell have to hand over the Lombardi Trophy to Robert Kraft and Tom Brady. But I also think that the Falcons offense will dominate a lot.
Jeremy Nygaard - Twins Daily
Falcons 28, Patriots 20.
Eric Pleiss - Twins Daily
Falcons 27, Pats 24
Juan Gamez - GCL pitcher and 2016 draft pick
Patriots are winning it 24-21! Tom Brady is by far the greatest player in NFL history!
Zack Granite - Chattanooga outfielder, Twins Minor League Player of the Year
The final score will be 31-26 Patriots. As good as Atlanta’s offense is I think the Patriots slow them down. My MVP is LaGarrette Blount as he rushes for 146 yards and 3 touchdowns. Book it
Lean Marrero - GCL Twins outfield prospect, 2015 draft pick
33-20 Patriots, Brady 320 yards, 3TD
Casey Scoggins - Kernels outfielder and 2016 draft pick
I'm tired of New England winning, and I'm not a fan of them even though Brady and his squad are solid. I think Matt Ryan and Atlanta have something special this year. So I'm going to say: 35-28 Atlanta wins on a late score in the 4th.
Aaron Whitefield - GCL Twins prospect from Australia
I'm going Patriots, cause Brady is a stud but low scoring game! 20-7.
Travis Blankenhorn - Kernels 2B prospect and 2015 draft pick
I'm going to have to go with 28-24 Patriots.
Trey Cabbage - Elizabethton 3B prospect and 2015 draft pick
I'm rooting for the Falcons, but I think Tom and the Pats will pull it out. 31-23 Pats.
Ryan Walker - Lookouts infield prospect
ATL 38 NE 23.
Hank Morrison - Elizabethton outfielder and 2016 draft pick
I am a Steelers fan so I definitely want the Patriots to lose. I think the Patriots will lose, but I think it will be very close 24-17 Falcons!
Justin Hazard - GCL Twins catcher and 2016 signee.
My predictions for this Super Bowl is Falcons win 24-20. They just have too many weapons on offense and look for Sanu to have a big game with a lot of attention being paid to Julio Jones.
Brandon Lopez - Kernels shortstop prospect and 2016 draft pick
My prediction is 24-17. Pats take it home!
Tyler Wells - Elizabethton RHP prospect and 2016 draft pick
I predict that the Patriots will win by a score of 34-28
Kevin Garcia - Kernels and Miracle catching prospect
I got the Patriots! It's hard to beat tom Brady although Matt Ryan will put up a fight I still believe the Patriots will come on top.
DJ Baxendale - Red Wings RHP prospect
My prediction for this years’ Super Bowl is the same prediction as the beginning of the NFL season. Sir Thomas Brady will lead the New England Patriots to another Super Bowl victory!
David Hurlbut - Red Wings LHP prospect
I have the Patriots over the Falcons 24-21. Tom Brady will seal the deal. But it will be a dogfight with Matt Ryan leading the Falcons.
Randy LeBlanc - Miracle RHP prospect
31-27 Pats. Who dat!
Daniel Kihle - Miracle outfield prospect and 2015 draft pick
I think it's going to be a shootout with the two quarterbacks. My guess is a lot of action with the Falcons winning it late in the 4th quarter. 35-31 Falcons.
Alex Kirilloff - Elizabethton outfield prospect and 2016 first-round pick
Tom Hackimer - Kernels RH RP prospect and 2016 draft pick
I've got Patriots 42, Falcons 27.
Logan Darnell - free agent LHP, spent years with the Twins
O'Rourke is going to hate me for this. Falcons 30 - Pats 21.
Zack Jones - Lookouts RH RP prospect
I want the Falcons to win, but I have the Patriots winning 31-23.
Kolton Kendrick - GCL Twins 1B prospect and 2015 draft pick
It's really a hard question because I want the Falcons to win, and it's going to be a great game. But I see the Patriots winning 31-24 and the Falcons jumping up early in the game.
Pat Light - Twins RH RP prospect
Patriots 37 Falcons 21 … Never bet against Tom Brady.
Patrick McGuff - Elizabethton Twins RH RP prospect, 2016 draft pick
Patriots, It would feel wrong to pick against the greatest quarterback to ever play the game.
Shane Carrier - Elizabethton outfield prospect, 2016 draft pick
I've got Atlanta 27, New England 24.
Ryan O’Rourke - Twins Left-handed relief pitcher
Falcons - thanks for coming.
Keaton Steele - Miracle RHP prospect
Brady is 4-0 all-time against Atlanta. With that being said, all streaks must come to an end just like the Cubs this past year. I've got Atlanta by a field goal.
Zach Strecker - GCL Twins RH RP prospect, 2016 signee
I'm hoping the Falcons win like 50-0, but I don't see that happening. But, more like a 34-31 Falcons instead is more realistic.
Jake Reed - Red Wings RH RP prospect
I got the Falcons! Tight end Levine Toilolo went to the same high school as I did and it would be great to see him win a championship.
Travis Harrison - Lookouts Outfield Prospect
Patriots 31, Falcons 28.
Jeff Manship - Former Twins pitcher, recently signed to play in Korea
I'm predicting the Falcons because they are such a high powered offense. Plus, I really want them to win because I like Matt Ryan and I'm sick of the Patriots always being in the Super Bowl.
Hector Lujan - Elizabethton RH RP prospect and 2015 draft pick
I'm taking the Patriots winning by a score of 24-17.
Luke Bard - Lookouts RH RP prospect
31-27 Pats. Can't bet against Tommy.
Sean Miller - Miracle infield prospect, 2015 draft pick
Can't go against Tom Brady. I think it'll be a good game, but I'm taking the Patriots!
Mitchell Kranson - Elizabethton C/3B prospect, 2016 draft pick
I have the Patriots winning 35-30.
Tyler Benninghoff - Twins RHP prospect, 2016 draft pick
I got the Pats winning 31-17!
Stephen Gonsalves - Lookouts LHP prospect, Twins Minor League Pitcher of the Year
Atlanta 28-24. Matty Iceis going to take care of business.
Anthony Slama - former Twins pitcher, Slama Time!
Patriots 31-24. Ryan throws one interception, Brady throws one interception. New England will win coin toss and defer.
Cody Stashak - Miracle RHP prospect
I'm going to have to go with Atlanta over New England, 34-31.
Callan Pearce - South African, GCL Twins RH RP prospect
I'm not too clued up on the points system, but I'll have the Patriots winning 34-24.
Cory Provus - Twins Radio Voice
Austin Malinowski - Minnesotan and former LHP in Twins system
Patriots by 14. Tom Brady Super Bowl MVP!
Brice Zimmerman - The Voice of Miracle baseball
38-31 Falcons. #RiseUp!!!!!
Dallas Gallant - Former Twins RH RP prospect
Patriots win 27-20.
Matt Fiedler - Minnesotan, former Gopher, Big 10 MVP, Cardinals 2016 draft pick
I got the Pats winning 21-17!
Alex Wimmers - Twins RH RP prospect, debuted in 2016
I'm rocking with the Patriots. I can't go against Tom Brady in Super Bowls. Even though he went to Michigan... He just plays well in big games and the Atlanta defense won't know how to stop them. The Patriots will shut down Julio and the Falcons won't make the right adjustments in which they need to. I got Patriots 31, Falcons 17 with Matt Ryan throwing a Pick-6 at the end of the game when they are trying to mount a game-tying drive at the end of the game.
LaTroy Hawkins - former Twins pitcher, spent 21 years in MLB, Twins Special Assistant to Baseball Operations
I'm rooting for Brady and the Pats, 27-21. Can't wait for the Commissioner to hand that trophy to Brady/Kraft.
Ryan Mason - Elizabethton RHP prospect, 2016 draft pick
My prediction for Sunday's Super Bowl:
Patriots 27-24 over the Falcons.
Josh Rabe - former Twins outfielder, current head coach and Quincy University
Patriots 34, Atlanta 31 -- Brady and Bill will find a way.
Terry Doyle - former Twins Rule 5 pick
I think the Patriots win a close one. 27-24 is my guess.
Dan Osterbrock - former Twins LHP prospect
Patriots 31, Falcons 24. Tom Brady is the MVP and secretly spits in his hand before shaking Roger Goodell's hand (just like we used to do in Little League after a loss).
Steve Blevins - former Twins RH RP prospect
Chris Colabello - former Twins DH, recently signed with Cleveland
I'm not a big prediction guy because I think the team that scores the most points will end up winning... haha (that's why they play the game)
With all the bias in the world, as a Pats fan… Pats 37-21 with a garbage time TD by Atlanta. But, I actually hope it's close because Super Bowls are way better when they're down to the wire.
Matt Albanese - Twins outfield prospect, 2016 draft pick
Pats got it ..... Bill and Tom are winners.
Todd Van Steensel - Australian, Twin RH RP prospect
I reckon Patriots will win 34-17.
Ethan Mildren - former Twins RHP prospect
I'd like to see the Patriots lose for my beating my Steelers, but I think they are going to win 24-17.
Steve Singleton - former Twins 2B prospect, currently Miracle hitting coach
Sean Johnson - Twins Direction of Scouting
I'll go 35-31 Patriots. Hard to not bet on Brady. Atlanta puts up some points but won't quite get it done.
Tim Shibuya - former Twins RHP prospect
Patriots win 24-17.
Brian Dinkelman - former Twins 2B/OF, current Kernels hitting coach
I'm going Patriots 27-23 . Late TD by Pats wins it.
Austin Tribby - Elizabethton LH RP prospect, 2016 draft pick
I think the Patriots will win... Tom Brady is the GOAT, and unfortunately I don't think it will be a close game. I'm calling 42-20.
Dalton Hicks - Lookouts 1B prospect
I think my man Tom is going to have a good day. They are going to win 24-17 ! Go Dolphins!
AJ Pettersen - former Twins infield prospect, current head coach Chanhassen HS
I'll take Patriots 28-17!
Jake Proctor - former Twins OF prospect
Pats have been there-done that far too many times. Falcons come out hot with an early lead, but Tom leads a late comeback to remind people. He's the GOAT. Patriots 31, Falcons 28.
Isaiah Aluko - GCL Twins outfield prospect, 2016 signee
Yes, I am. My prediction is that the Falcons will win 27-24 on a last minute field goal. #Riseup
Jacque Jones - former Twins outfielder, current Nationals assistant hitting coach
Don't really care who wins. Just wanna see an exciting game.
Tyler Beardsley - Kernels RHP prospect, 2016 draft pick
Chris Mazza - former Twins RHP prospect, currently in Marlins system
Falcons 36-27, and Jones will have over 150 yards receiving and 2 TDs.
Griffin Jax - Twins RHP prospect, 2016 draft pick
I really do not care who wins. I just love watching football and am excited for a good game!
John Curtiss - Miracle RH RP prospect
I think the Patriots are gonna win! I like Brady a lot, respect that guy.
AJ Achter - former Twins pitcher, currently with the Detroit Tigers
I'll go Pats 28-24. As much as I dislike them because I'm a Bills fan, I can't go against Brady, the best QB of all-time, and I believe he will get his 5th ring.
Niko Goodrum - Lookouts IF/OF prospect
Of course I'm riding with my home team. Falcons all day, every day!
Trey Vavra - Miracle 1B prospect
They destroyed the Packers... my heart is broke. Go Falcons! 27-23.
Austin Diemer - Miracle OF prospect
31-28 Patriots... going to be a competitive game but Brady won't let his boys lose!
Logan Lombana - Miracle RH RP prospect
Trevor Plouffe - former Twins 3B, recently signed with the Oakland A's
Dave St. Peter - Minnesota Twins President
New England 30, Atlanta 27 (Overtime)
Robby Incmikoski - former FSN reporter, now at Root Sports in Pittsburgh
Matt Ryan and Julio Jones are playing in their own world right now and everyone else is just a spectator, and it's fun to watch! But here's the rub: I have a REALLY hard time betting against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick. I predict a high-scoring, entertaining game.....and a 34-31 Patriots win!
Trevor Hildenberger - Lookouts RH RP prospect (two-time Twins Daily Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Year)
I think the Pats win by a touchdown or 2. When you give Belichick time to prepare, it helps the Patriots take away what the other team does best. I think the Pats slow down the Falcons enough to win
Tommy Watkins - former Twins player, current Kernels manager
Will Hurt - former Twins infield prospect
Michael Theofanopoulos - Miracle LH RP prospect
I have Falcons 34, Patriots 28.
LaMonte Wade - Miracle outfield prospect
Pats 28 Falcons 21.
