Super Bowl Odds

It’s that time of year again. The Super Bowl is upon us and if you’re wondering whether to put your money on the  Steelers or the Cardinals, you might want to take a look at the predictions of one of our favorite sports statisticians. In his Stat of the Week, John Dewan, owner of Baseball Info Solutions and co-publisher of ACTA Sports, offers a Super Bowl prediction system that comprises 12 statistical indicators: five defensive, four offensive and three based on overall stats. The strongest indicators overall are the defensive ones. Each of the 12 indicators successfully predicts the Super Bowl winner 55 percent to 68 percent of the time. Taken collectively, the indicators have an even better track record — increasing the odds of predicting  the winner to 84 percent. May the best team win! Oh, and if you’re throwing a Super Bowl party check out I.I.I. tips on being a responsible host.
