Countdown to kickoff, and if you have time to kill between dips and drinks, here’s a 7-layer helping of some late predictions on Super Bowl.

Dip and enjoy.

Nine of 12 pick the Seahawks.

Why the Seahawks will win: Peyton Manning has his moments against the league’s top-ranked defense, but Russell Wilson elevates in an MVP performance.

MVP: Russell Wilson

Bold prediction: In stark contrast to their previous Super Bowl appearance, the Seahawks will have at least one controversial call (or non-call) go their way.

New York Post

Eight of nine pick the Broncos.

San Jose Mercury News/Bay Area News Group

Four of five pick the Broncos.

JERRY McDONALD, NFL writer

Broncos 27, Seahawks 17.

When playing at CenturyLink Field, the Seahawks are the best team in football. At home, Seattle can weather an early deficit as it did against the 49ers in the NFC Championship game and have the confidence to come back and win. At MetLife Stadium, against Peyton Manning, it’s a different story. With the weather cooperating, even Seattle’s defensive backs will find negotiating an endless series of picks and screens to be difficult as the Broncos control the clock and the game. Seattle’s limited offense will find the going tough against an underrated Denver defense.

New Orleans Times/Picayune

All three pick the Broncos.
