An Unnecessarily Analytical Look at ESPN’s Super Bowl XLVI Picks

An Unnecessarily Analytical Look at ESPN’s Super Bowl XLVI Picks

Hyped by on February 4, 2012 Website: www.rationalpastime.com

Sixty-three ESPN experts (a term that should be taken lightly in some cases) shared their picks for Super Bowl XLVI, which kicks off tomorrow in Indianapolis. So what's a nerd to do with all this data when he needs a break from his dissertation? Why, over-analyze it of course!

The findings support my suspicion about the media at large: the consensus pick is Giants over Patriots in a close one. Contrary to Vegas (which still has the Patriots -3 at the moment), the average pick is Giants 25.4 vs. Patriots 24.5--not too far off from the Madden NFL '12 simulation. I hope both teams have been practicing their one-tenth-of-a-point conversions.
