There are years when the Madden soccer simulation confirmed uncanny accuracy. It is primarily based on a considerable amount of precise NFL knowledge and stats, so when the pc takes over the administration of each groups, the outcomes could be very life like.
Living proof: Tremendous Bowl XLVII, when it accurately predicted the Ravens would defeat the San Francisco 49ers by three factors; Anquan Boldin and Frank Gore would each rating touchdowns and Ravens’ quarterback Joe Flacco would win the Most Useful Participant award.
EA Sports activities began utilizing its Madden NFL program to foretell Tremendous Bowl winners in 2004. It accurately predicted 4 Tremendous Bowls in a row (XXXVIII to XLI). Nevertheless it hasn’t executed a run like that since. Within the final decade-plus, it by no means acquired greater than two years in a row appropriate; nevertheless it hasn’t gotten greater than two in a row unsuitable, both.
And this 12 months, the winner is: Cincinnati Bengals, 24; LA Rams, 21.
I am going to let the EA Sports activities public relations division fill within the particulars from the simulation:
“The Bengals enter halftime down 14-7, following touchdowns by Rams operating again Sony Michel and red-hot large receiver Cooper Kupp, with Ja’Marr Chase placing up the Bengals’ solely landing.
“Firstly of the second half, the Bengals lock up on protection with cornerback Eli Apple selecting off Matthew Stafford and taking it to the home to tie the sport. Joe Burrow takes the lead early within the fourth quarter on a landing cross to Tee Higgins, however Los Angeles solutions with an Odell Beckham Jr. landing to degree the sport.
“Within the last minutes, Burrow will get his group in area aim vary creating one other alternative for Evan McPherson to step up and kick the profitable area aim to safe a historic victory for the Bengals franchise.”
There you’ve it. For a second opinion, I went to a different grasp of prediction: The Magic 8-Ball. Being Gadget Daddy, I used the Web model, discovered at: www.magic-8ball.com.
“Will Madden’s Sunday prediction show appropriate?” I requested earlier than clicking on the massive 8 ball on the monitor.
