Who’s winning Super Bowl LIII?
Guam’s football fans chime in on who they’re picking to win the big game, Monday 9 am Chamorro Standard Time, between the New England Patriots vs. the Los Angeles Rams.
Many fans declined to comment given their distain for both teams and even those who selected weren’t too fond of their picks. Given that Guam is full of 49ers and Steelers fans, seeing their division rivals in the Rams (for 49ers fan) and seeing Brady and the Pats’ (for Steelers fan) in the final game of the year doesn’t leave too much to be excited about.
Check out who’s picking who in the gallery below! (click photo to enlarge quote)
"Having once been a young coach like Sean McVey going up against established coaches like Bill Belichick, I am 100% confident the Patriots will win," - Desmond Mandell: Guam National TFA Head Coach
"Don't care of either team! But if I absolutely had to bet, I'd bet on Brady and the Pats. In a perfect world both teams lose!" - Roque Martinez: Rizin MMA
"The Patriots have the experience and they have the GOAT!," - Roke Alcantara Jr. :Guam Baseball
"Patriots! The main factors will be Julian Edelman on the crossing routes and Rob Gronkowski on GO routes. New will win 35-21. Tom Brady will be the MVP and subsequently announces retirement post game," - Johnavan Tamayo, JRMS Athletic Director
"I got the Patriots winning 31-23. Experience is going to win this game. If it comes down to crunch time, Tom Brady has the advantage," - Rod Camacho, Football legend
"I'm going Rams cause my son Masato has been a Rams fan since they moved from St. Louise. We watched all their documentary 'All or Nothing' and he's been hooked. He's a fan of Todd Gurley." - Mike Rabago: Guam Volleyball

KC 34, TB 24:
You can't prepare for Mahomes. TB can get to him with their front 4, but Mahommes has consistently shown he's elusive in the pocket. throw in a 3-time super bowl winning Defensive Coordinator in Spags (who has beaten Brady twice in the Super bowl already) and KC has a complete team. TB has been inconsistent all season. and although its hard to bet against Brady, there's not enough familiarity to overcome the familiarity and stability of KCs offense and defense.
"I always believe in the underdogs, nothing to lose yet and everything to gain. And I am a die hard Steelers fan and want to keep the reign of being the only 6 time Super Bowl Champs to ourselves!" - Al Blend : JFK Islanders/Guam Steelers head coach
"The running game is in the right place right now. They have been doing it without Gurley. With the two week rest, Gurley should be good to go. Defense with Suh and Donald and the pass rush will disrupt Brady and company," - Benji Pangelinan : Guam Baseball /Football legend
