Some of EA’s predictions for the Madden NFL Super Bowl have been surprisingly accurate in the past.
Play the Super Bowl in Madden NFL 22!
For decades, the Super Bowl has been one of the most popular sporting events in the United States. Super Bowl 56, the season’s grand finale, features the Los Angeles Rams against the Cincinnati Bengals in what promises to be a thrilling contest. Despite the overwhelming majority of professional gamblers predicting the Los Angeles Rams to win, Madden NFL 22 disagrees. In its latest Madden NFL game, EA plays a virtual Super Bowl match and then posts the results for all to see. Madden NFL 22 predicted that the Cincinnati Bengals would win this year’s Super Bowl, defeating the Los Angeles Rams 24-21. If Madden NFL is correct in predicting the score of the Super Bowl, it won’t be the first time in its history that it has done so.

Super Bowl Prediction Accuracy in Madden NFL
Kareem Hunt leaps over a player in Madden NFL 22 for Chicago.
Starting with Super Bowl 38 in 2004, EA’s Madden NFL Super Bowl predictions had a good run of success. As predicted by Madden, the Patriots defeated the Panthers in Super Bowl 38. The Patriots beat the Eagles in Super Bowl 39, as predicted by Madden. Afterwards, Madden predicted that the Steelers would defeat the Seahawks in Super Bowl 40, and the Colts would win the championship in Super Bowl 41. Starting with a four-prediction streak is impressive, but it should be noted that none of these predictions predicted the score correctly. When it came to Super Bowl predictions after Super Bowl 41, Madden’s record started to falter, and the game’s first error came in Super Bowl 42. While Super Bowl 43 and 44 were correctly predicted, Madden returned for Super Bowl 46 and 47 with another two-year streak of correct predictions after an incorrect prediction in Super Bowl 45.
It was a historic moment for Madden NFL:
when it correctly predicted both the winning team and the final score of Super Bowl 49. The final score was exactly as predicted by Madden, with the Patriots defeating the Seahawks 28-24. As of late, Madden has suffered from a losing streak. Despite correctly predicting the winner of Super Bowl 54, Madden’s predictions for Super Bowls 52, 53, and 55 have all been wrong. Although Madden NFL’s Super Bowl predictions still have their moments, they don’t seem to be as accurate as they once were, which might be a comforting thought for LA Rams fans. Eleven of the 18 Super Bowl predictions made by Madden NFL were correct, a success rate of 61.1111 percent. Even for a game released every year, Madden NFL’s accuracy in predicting Super Bowl winners isn’t bad.
Most experts expect the Los Angeles Rams to win the Super Bowl this year:
not the Cincinnati Bengals, who are predicted to defeat them 24-21. It’s expected to be a close game, but the majority of experts believe that the Rams will take home the trophy on Sunday night. Maybe Madden can make amends for last year’s incorrect prediction, despite the odds being stacked against it. In the end, the odds appear to be on its side.
