JEFF BURTON, NASCAR Winston Cup driver and serious sports fan: "I think Baltimore will win. Defense. Defense. Defense. Baltimore is the better team."
BILLY DONOVAN, Florida men's basketball coach and Long Island native: "Who's playing in the Super Bowl? Just kidding. Do you know where I'm from? New York. That's who is going to win. New York, in a walk."
RAY ROMANO, star of CBS series Everybody Loves Raymond: "Giants, 31-24. Everyone thinks it will be a low-scoring game. That's why I'm going the other way."
CRAIG KILBORN, host of CBS' Late, Late Show: "Ravens, 4-2. The first all-safety Super Bowl."
GENA LEE NOLIN, star of syndicated TV series Sheena and former Baywatch co-star: "Since the Vikings, who are of course my favorite team, will not be going to the Super Bowl, I'll have to change which team I'm rooting for. I'm going with the Ravens because I would love to see a team that was considered an underdog all season long get in there and kick some major fanny!"
ARNOLD PALMER, professional golfer: "I've known (Ravens owner) Art Modell for some time. I think Baltimore has shown some pretty good football recently. I'll take Baltimore 24-14."
