“The game will be very close and high scoring. As time expires in the fourth quarter, the Saints have possession and are within striking distance of the goal line. Should be a great game,” said Steve Olson, President of SportSims.net

SportSims.net, an online Franchise Football simulation game, used their technologically advanced simulation engine to predict the winner of Super Bowl XLIV. SportSims.net’s SimEngine uses the actual player and team stats and uses them to calculate each of the individual matchups in the game, producing the most accurate results possible.
After simulating the upcoming matchup between the Indianapolis Colts and the New Orleans Saints more than 10,000 times, SportSims.net predicts that the Colts will emerge the winners.
Saints vs. Colts. In 10,000 simulations, SportSims.net predicts that the Colts will win the matchup 50.9% of the time against the Saints. The game’s final score was 34-28. This Super Bowl will prove very exciting as this is one of the closer simulations SportSims.net has run. SportSims.net President, Steve Olson said, “The game will be very close and high scoring. As time expires in the fourth quarter, the Saints have possession and are within striking distance of the goal line. Should be a great game!”
With the news of Colts’ Defensive End Dwight Freeney’s serious ankle injury and questionable status for the game, SportSims.net ran an additional group of simulations to see the effect – the results illustrate that if Freeney does not play, the game shifts in favor of the Saints who won 50.1% of those games with a final score of 35-34. “It is amazing to see the affect that one key player can have on a team’s performance,” added Olson.
