Should you take Madden’s Super Bowl predictions seriously?

EA Sports’ Madden football juggernaut has accurately predicted the winner of the Super Bowl six out of eight times since 2004. What’s even more impressive is that the game predicted that the Giants and Patriots would be in the Super Bowl at the beginning of this season.

This year, Madden is saying that the Giants will win the game 27-24. This falls in line with what many sports betting websites are saying. The difference between Madden’s prediction and the betting websites’, however, is that Madden’s is based on a simulation, whereas the betting websites are going more or less off the fact that the Giants have already beaten the Patriots once already. I’m putting my money on the Pats, mainly because of this.
