Who wins Super Bowl LVIII? Annual Madden simulation reveals very close game

February 09, 2024

According to a computer simulation, the Kansas City Chiefs will repeat as Super Bowl champions. The simulated matchup in EA’s Madden NFL 24 predicts that quarterback Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs will edge out San Francisco 30-28 in Super Bowl LVIII. Before that, the computer simulations incorrectly picked the Bengals to win Super Bowl LVI (the Rams won) and the Chiefs to win Super Bowl LV (Tom Brady and the Buccaneers won). Interestingly, the last time the Madden simulation correctly picked the winner of the Super Bowl was four years ago in Super Bowl LIV, when Mahomes and the Chiefs beat the 49ers 31-20. Although the game developers actually lean on artificial intelligence to perfect their game predictions, Madden’s recent Super Bowl simulations have failed to pick the winner in six of the last eight Super Bowls.
