Monday afternoon the Bengals were 4.5 point underdogs in the Super Bowl matchup against the Rams.

EA Sports has held Super Bowl game simulations since 2005.

All time, the video game has accurately predicted the winner of the game in 11 of the last 18 years. The only time the game has predicted both the winner and final score correctly was for the Super Bowl XLIX matchup between the Patriots and Seahawks, when the Patriots won by a score of 28-24.
