Epic animal Super Bowl prediction roundup

Jan 31, 2014, 4:04 PM PST

Animals aren’t influenced by the paralysis by analysis that comes with Super Bowl week. They ignore the stats, film, logic, and simply trust their gut when making picks.

After two excruciatingly long weeks of hyperbole, the experts have all officially weighed in on the Super Bowl. Sure, these animals don’t have a clue what they’re actually picking, but who cares? It’s cute. And if cute didn’t sell, there’d be no Puppy Bowl. They even have a fantasy draft for that thing.

Jimmy Fallon’s puppies’ pick: Broncos

Active streak: 1

Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium’s clairvoyant Manatee’s pick: Broncos

Active streak: 6

Fred “The Psychic” Bunny’s pick: Seahawks

Active streak: 0 (picked 49ers last year)

Eli the prognosticating ape’s pick: Seahawks

Active streak: 6

Ozzy the bear from Zoo Montana’s pick: Broncos

Active streak: 1

Teddy Bear the porcupine’s pick: Seahawks

Active streak: 2


The animal experts are split 3-3. Bummer. It looks like you’ll actually have to watch the Super Bowl to see which team wins. To make things even more confusing, the two animals with the longest active streaks picked opposite teams. So much for animal instincts.
