Bing Photoshopped A Wisconsin Fan Into A Duke Fan For A March Madness Prediction Graphic

Search engine Bing has been using data to predict winners during this year's NCAA Tournament. Ahead of Sunday's Duke vs. Gonzaga South Region final, Bing sent a tweet about the statistical benchmarks that Gonzaga would have to hit to beat Duke. It also gave the Blue Devils a 70-percent chance of victory.

The prediction was right on, but the "Duke fans" that it used in the photo with the tweet? Not so much. As it turns out, the fans pictured are actually Wisconsin fans that were photoshopped for some strange reason. One of them posted a comparison picture on her Instagram account.

Why wouldn't Bing just use real Duke fans for this? We have no idea.
