A COMPUTER RUNS 50K SUPER BOWL SIMULATIONS AND THE 49ERS WIN 67% OF THE TIME
PredictionMachine.com, a website that predicts the outcome of sporting events based on computer models, ran the 49ers vs. Ravens match-up through their system 50,000 times to see what the most likely outcome of the game will be.
The 49ers won the game 67% of the time, and scored an average of seven points more than the Ravens in the simulations, with San Francisco outgaining the Ravens by an average of 85 yards per game.
Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco completed an average of 20.9 of 35.3 passes per game, with 1.3 touchdowns and 0.8 interceptions.
The 49ers' Colin Kaepernick completed an average of 17.2 of 28.8 passes, for 1.6 touchdowns and 0.8 interceptions, and rushed for 38 yards.
This particular computer model has predicted the correct winner of seven of the last nine Super Bowls.
