PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — What if we had a computer system to go into time to predict the Super Bowl winner? Is that something you may be interested in? According to PredictionMachine.com, the Denver Broncos will beat the Seattle Seahawks 24-23 to win Super Bowl XLIX.

PredictionMachine.com’s accuracy stems from the Predictalator (a fancy name for the Machine), which plays an upcoming game 50,000 times before it’s actually played. The Predictalator has played the entire NFL season 50,000 times and the Broncos are the consensus champs.

Here is the most common playoff bracket, which was projected 402 times out of 50,000 seasons:
