Can the Seattle Seahawks win their second straight Super Bowl title? How will "Deflate-gate" impact the game? Can Tom Brady win the fourth Super Bowl title of his career?

There are many story lines heading into Super Bowl XLIX next week in Arizona. The good news for football fans is that, despite all of the compelling story lines, the true story is the fact that the Seahawks vs Patriots will pit the best two teams in the NFL against each other.

It is rare that a Super Bowl seems so tough to predict. Case in point is the betting line - the Patriots are currently 1 point favourites are having started as 2.5 point underdogs.

According to the Las Vegas bookmakers, the Patriots have been here before and should thrive despite all of the added circus of Super Bowl week. The bookmakers believe that the Pats have dealt with controversy before (remember Spy-gate?) and will be able to get past all of the allegations of the past week.

The Seattle Seahawks, on the other hand, seem more than content to just lay low. If it weren't for the Patriots, the main story line heading into next Sunday would be the Seahawks' quest for their second straight Super Bowl. Instead, the Seahawks have been largely an afterthought since "Deflate-gate" started to rear its ugly head.

Can Tom Brady win the fourth Super Bowl title of his career as he nears the end of his career or will Russell Wilson and the Seahawks win their second straight title?
