Put down that six-pack and the nacho cheese dip. According to a mobile browser called Opera Mini, the New England Patriots will win the Super Bowl this Sunday. Game over.
ReadWriteWeb reports that Opera Mini called 3 out 4 playoff games correctly. The only miscalculation was that the New York Giants would lose to the Green Bay Packers (they didn’t). Opera Mini predicted both the Giants and the Patriots would win their respective league title games and go onto the Super Bowl. Now, its system of gauging online analytics (see the ReadWriteWeb story for exactly how) says the Pats will beat the Giants. You can bet on it. Las Vegas oddsmakers even say so.
But Giants fans won’t let this info stop them from watching, and football fans in general needn’t forgo the wings and things party spread. Opera Mini was wrong once before and it involved the Giants. Not to mention the Giants propensity to come on strong late in the season and pull off an upset or a few (hello, Super Bowl XLVI!).
