The Super Bowl prediction by Bing Predicts

Bing Predicts is a Microsoft’s algorithm that is predicting every NFL game and the Super Bowl match is no exception. It picks games straight up, not against the point spread.

It had a 178-88 (66.9%) record this season, which was nearly identical to that of the Las Vegas betting favorites. The Bing Predicts algorithm was beaten out by Nate Silver’s ELO model, which went 184-82 (69.1%).

Bing Predicts is 8-2 picking playoff games after correctly predicting both conference title games. While it’s not as impressive as the 15-1 record it had in the World Cup knockout stages, it’s still in a strong finish.

Here is Bing Predicts’ Super Bowl prediction.
Seattle Seahawks versus New England Patriots — Patriots win, 51.5% chance (Patriots -1)
