There are many ways to analyze a matchup of this magnitude. Experts can pore over numbers and film, but perhaps the most fun way to make a prediction on Super Bowl LIV is to kick back and let "Madden 20" do it for you.

In fact, the "Madden" franchise has been making a Super Bowl prediction each year since 2004, letting the game's engine simulate the upcoming matchup.

Madden Super Bowl LIV Prediction

This year, it seems that the game is giving the Kansas City Chiefs an edge, predicting they defeat the San Francisco 49ers, 26-22.

While it's important to note that this should be taken with a grain of salt, these predictions have actually been pretty accurate.

Madden Super Bowl Prediction History

"Madden" has correctly predicted the winner in 10 of the last 16 Super Bowls. Interestingly, "Madden" was 8-2 on its first 10 Super Bowl predictions, but the game has certainly cooled off recently, going 2-4 across its last six predictions.

To its credit, however, "Madden" did nail the exact score of XLIX, predicting a New England Patriots' victory over the Seattle Seahawks, 28-24.

While the "Madden" seal of approval is certainly a good omen for Kansas City, fans will have to wait until Sunday to see if the prediction comes true.
