Madden NFL 16 Super Bowl Sim: Carolina Edges Out Denver
Gamblers might actually want to pay attention.
EA Sports has released the results of its annual Super Bowl simulation using the latest Madden installment. And it's not such a joke, as EA notes the simulation has been correct 9 out of the last 12 years.
In fact, last year's simulation between the New England Patriots and Seattle Seahawks was so spot-on that it was downright scary: Not only was the winning team correct, but the sim got the exact score right and the New England's fourth-quarter comeback.
Now, Madden NFL 16 has predicted that the Carolina Panthers will defeat the Denver Broncos 24-20 in Sunday's big game. Carolina QB Cam Newton will earn MVP honors with a performance that includes 19 of 26 for 216 yards and a TD. Newton also cements the win with a rushing TD. On the flip side, Denver QB Peyton Manning goes for 21 of 37 for 241 yards and 2 TDs, and he does manage to lead a second half comeback after being down by 17, but it's not quite enough.
The oddsmakers certainly agree that Carolina wins. What do you say?
