Berman's pick is in.
We're just over 24 hours away from kickoff of the 52nd Super Bowl. The New England Patriots seek to tie the Pittsburgh Steelers with six NFL Super Bowl titles while the Eagles are in search of their first.
As is consistent with years past, legendary broadcaster Chris Berman made his pick for the Super Bowl. Although we haven't seen much of Berman this season, don't worry, he's still following the game closely.
Last season the Swami selected New England as the champ. While his prediction didn't look so good for the majority of the game, Tom Brady led the Pats to a fifth title...eventually.
Berman's prediction for that game was a 27-21 victory for the Pats. New England forced overtime after recovering from a 28-3 deficit en route to the six-point victory the Swami predicted (although not the correct score).
This year, Berman is going with experience. The Pats enter this game with a vastly superior edge in experience, although Berman doesn't want anyone to sleep on the Eagles.
13 years ago Berman correctly predicted the outcome of the Super Bowl. Coincidentally, that Super Bowl featured the same two teams, but only one has a few familiar faces.
Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are back. And that likely spells doom for the Eagles, per the Swami.
Believe me, I've had many of Jules Verne "Bottom of the Sea" marks. But in the Super Bowl 13 years ago, it was one of the Swami's high-water marks, as I had the score exact -- New England 24, Philadelphia 21. Only the QB and coach are the same for the Patriots ... hmm.
I know I just was saying earlier why history matters less now, but this is the Swami. Why wouldn't I pick the same thing? New England by three, 24-21.
Score: New England 24, Philadelphia 21
Philadelphia and New England kick off at 6:30 p.m. ET. Will Brady and company win yet another title, or can the NFC's best team make history in winning its first Super Bowl?
