    Nate Silver Super Bowl Prediction

    NE-SEA

    It was on First Take. Missed how he calculated it. Doubt you can calculate these things like baseball because football is moreso matchup based than who has the best team all around.

    Nonetheless, lets see if Mr. Silver is right

    Re: Nate Silver Super Bowl Prediction

    Sorry dapats, I must of been typing my thread as you were posting your.

    If you don't know who Nate Silver is then google the dude.

    Nate Silver picks a Patriots vs Seahawks SuperBowl and said he would take the Patriots.

    Also, Nate said Patriots and Broncos are the two best teams in football right now.  Said if the Patriots play Denver in the NFC Championship then that is really the SuperBowl game. 

    Sure it's all about his stat/metrics system but the dude is pretty amazing to listen to.  Kind of hard to pick against his logic.  Hope he is correct with this one!

    Re: Nate Silver Super Bowl Prediction

    I know who Nate Silver is. I know he got all 50 states right in the election and touched up on baseball. Just don't know how it applies to football. Again, I missed his explanation.

    Only thing I question is that I heard him talk about the significance of head coach/and the QB. So I'm wondering why he went with SEA over GB

    And did he say NE and Denver were the best teams? I honestly think you can make a very good case for 6 of the 8 remaining teams, which is why this will be a very exciting playoffs.

    I've been under the impression that NE and Den have been the odds on favorites because theyre really playing in a two team conference, while the NFC has for respectable teams.

    Oh well, hopefully he's right about the NE part at least

    That is for sure. They do have the odds in their favor because they essentially only have to go through each other.

    Funny thing ...  Silver has the same SB prediction I have. 

    Pats over Seahawks.
