As every year, before the Super Bowl, bets are placed on which team will be the winner, and several simulations of the game are also run in the famous Madden NFL video game, which this year has already determined who will win the Vince Lombardi trophy, at least digitally.
It has successfully predicted the last two Super Bowls
The Madden simulation usually has a very high accuracy rate, and has correctly predicted the outcome of the last two Super Bowls. Two years ago it predicted Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to beat the Kansas City Chiefs, and last year it also correctly predicted the Los Angeles Rams to beat the Cincinnati Bengals.
For this year, the simulation was run in Madden 23 and the result was that Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs would win the Super Bowl again, by a score of 24-11 over Jalen Hurts’ Eagles.
Based on the game, Mahomes was nearly perfect, especially early on, and gave the Chiefs an early lead over Philadelphia. By the end of the game, Mahomes completed 19 of his 20 passes for 158 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in the win.
Isiah Pacheco rushed for 61 yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. Meanwhile, Super Bowl MVP Nick Bolton had a decisive interception over Hurts to eliminate any hope of a comeback.
In the real world, Eagles are the favorites
In the real world, bookmaker Caesars Sportsbook has already released what the trends are for Chiefs vs. Eagles:
- Eagles vs. Chiefs spread: Philadelphia -1.5
- Eagles vs. Chiefs over/under: 50 points
- Eagles vs. Chiefs money line: Philadelphia -125, Kansas City +105
- PHI: The Eagles are 7-2 against the spread in their last nine playoff games.
- KC: The Chiefs have covered in their last three meetings with Philadelphia.
