Flipper The Dolphin Prophet Predicts Michigan Will Win The Orange Bowl

Flipper, the dolphin prognosticator, has made his pick for the Orange Bowl champion, and he likes the Michigan Wolverines.

Attention ladies and gentlemen: Flipper, the divine Orange Bowl dolphin prophet, has finally spoken.

Today Flipper the Dolphin made his sixth annual pick for the Orange Bowl with his perfect 5-for-5 record on the line, and this year he chose the Michigan Wolverines over the Florida State Seminoles.

Check it out below:

The cynic in me says it looks like he just chose the Michigan ball because it was closer, but I'm no dolphin expert. Whatever he's been doing the past five years has certainly been working, so who am I to critique his mystical dolphin thought process?

For what it's worth, ESPN is giving Michigan a 62 percent win probability. The Wolverines are also a 6.5-point favorite.

The Orange Bowl takes place on December 30 and kicks off at 8:00 p.m. E.T. You can catch the game on ESPN. I just hope Flipper gets to watch the game, too.
