Cortana Picks the Cardinals to Win

Last season, Cortana correctly predicted 67% of all NFL games. It has since picked 71% of Wimbledon results and 75% of the Women's World Cup knockout stage correctly. The model has dabbled in areas outside of sports — including American Idol and the Grammys — but is sticking to sports this NFL season.
Here are Cortana's Week 1 predictions as of Wednesday morning. Cortana simply picks a winner, but for comparison's sake, Vegas favorites (with point spreads) are in parentheses We'll update these throughout the week to see if they change. .

Pittsburgh Steelers at New England Patriots — Patriots win, 64.4% chance. (Patriots -7)
Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears — Packers win, 71.6% chance. (Packers -7)
Carolina Panthers at Jacksonville Jaguars — Panthers win, 58.2% chance. (Panthers -3)

Re: Cortana Picks the Cardinals to Win

pretty skewed for the first week:
Texans 66% chance and Rams 56% over Seahawks...not bets I would make
Atl over Philly is another I'd cover

Re: Cortana Picks the Cardinals to Win

I'm not saying we will win but how many times did Cortana pick the Saints to win in 2014 & they didn't?

Or he could be dead on and we get renamed what he believes will be Histler

“Beasts ferocious with hunger (Lions, Bears) will cross the rivers (Missippi)
The greater part of the battlefield will be against Hister (Saints).
Into a cage of iron (grid iron) will the great one be drawn,
When the child of Germany ( but really French, New Orleans) observes nothing.”

Re: Cortana Picks the Cardinals to Win

Cortana predictions are based on who should win.

It shows a 56-44 probability the Cards will win at home.

Sounds about right to me.

Re: Cortana Picks the Cardinals to Win

Cards are super bowl contenders. I really want to see a Saints win but I believe the cards will win 31-27. Offense will have to be the best it has even been to cover this horrid defense.
