Super Bowl picks and predictions 2013: NFL.com, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, other assorted 49ers-Ravens picks

USA TODAY Sports

With Super Bowl XLVII set to take place this weekend, we check out a wide range of picks from around the web, including NFL.com, ESPN and Sports Illustrated.

It's Friday and the Super Bowl XLVII picks are in!

I scoured the web for some of premier opinions to see who the "experts" were picking. I gathered the top picks from ESPN, Sports Illustrated and NFL.com.

ESPN was pretty split on their picks, while the heads at Sports Illustrated seem to be favoring the Baltimore Ravens. NFL.com on the other hand, seemed to be leaning toward the San Francisco 49ers. I also found an interesting link to some entertainment news which annually gathers celebrity picks for the Super Bowl.

There were a lot of picks on ESPN and the celebrity sample, so I had to pick and choose a bit. However, there is plenty to look at below. Check out which direction everyone is leaning come Super Bowl Sunday.
