Bleacher Report's Expert Consensus Picks for Super Bowl XLVII

It's the most...wonderful time...of the year. 

While many people love the holiday season and others love summer or that first blooming flower of spring, our NFL experts have been working for this weekend—all season long. The preseason predictions have come and gone; the draft is still a long way off. This is Super Bowl week, and we at B/R couldn't be happier.

Hey, did you hear Ray Lewis is retiring? What about the fact that Jim and John Harbaugh are (wait for it) brothers?! There may or may not be some sort of Super Bowl history with the 49ers as well; we're trying to confirm.

Narratives aside (because you'll get plenty of that in the bajillion hours of pregame you're likely to watch as you're headed onto your second party tray of wings), there's a game to be played.

Here are our picks.
