Predictions for Sunday

Instead of predicting the Super Bowl with my head (how can the Patriots lose?), or with my heart (the Giants can win, in a perfect world), I decided to let a computer tell me the score for tomorrow.

I took team data from each of the 16 regular season games, and took a weighted average for each of 26 different categories.  The model I used came from every game played this year (512 games).  It is very crude now, but needed something quick and dirty.

The results:

Patriots 31
Giants   21

We'll see how it does, as the score ranges are pretty wide.  This will be a good first test.
