A new Rasmussen Reports survey of 941 professional football fans finds that 38% think the Patriots will win their fourth Super Bowl title this year. Thirty-two percent (32%) of fans believe the San Francisco 49ers will win the Super Bowl. Just 11% see the Atlanta Falcons as champions and 10% think the Baltimore Ravens will win.
