Super Bowl XLVII isn't for another six days, but is it already safe to call a winner?

According to a Madden NFL 13 simulation run on Xbox 360, the Baltimore Ravens will beat the San Francisco 49ers 27-24. Although the results are just from a videogame, EA Sports' Madden NFL game continues to be one of the most accurate Super Bowl predictors. The game has accurately called seven of the last nine Super Bowls, and was only two points off from predicting the exact finale score of the 2009 game between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals.

"It's been uncanny how spot-on the Super Bowl simulation been the last few years," Anthony Stevenson, senior director of marketing for EA Sports, told The Hollywood Reporter. "We've run simulations throughout the playoffs as well and we've certainly done better than analysts have. This highlights how great of a gameplay engine the Madden franchise has and how realistic it is."

Madden '13 also predicts that quarterback Joe Flacco will be named the game MVP after completing 19 of 27 passes and two touchdowns.
