According to this year’s simulation of Super Bowl LI, the Pats are due to edge out the Falcons 27-24. That is, according to Madden and its maker EA Sports. Thanks to the game’s incredible AI (and marketing team), the video game franchise has correctly predicted nine out of the last 13 Super Bowl winners.
While the makers of Madden are already feeling pretty confident and claiming the NFL treats them “like a 33rd franchise,” we’ve still yet to see who comes out on top this Sunday.
In the meantime, however, Wired has an in-depth breakdown of the video game’s oddly accurate prescience.
…but this Giants fan hopes, at least this year, Madden‘s divination falls short.
