EA Sports' annual pre-Super Bowl sim is finished, and Madden NFL 13 favors the Baltimore Ravens to take down the San Francisco 49ers this Sunday in a 27-24 victory. If the Ravens win in real life, it will mark the fist time San Francisco loses in the championship game, having won in its previous five visits to the Super Bowl.
The Madden NFL series has had good success with picking winners in recent years. EA Sports' annual Super Bowl sims have been right for seven of the past nine years, with the only incorrect calls coming in 2008, when the Giants shut down the Patriots, and in 2011, when the Packers bested the Steelers. The simulations always use the most recent roster updates and depth charts for each team, with AI controlling both so player skill isn't a factor.
You can get a sense of how the simmed game went down in EA Sports' highlight reel above.
