  • Unanimous AI's Swarm Intelligence Platform predicted the win.
  • Eagles offense will be strong and allow fewer than 2.5 sacks.

This Sunday's Super Bowl LVII could be a nail-biter, but when the rumble is over, the Philadelphia Eagles will win against the Kansas City Chiefs. It will only be the second time the Birds will win the Super Bowl since 1933.

That is the prediction of the AI model developed by Unanimous AI. Its Swarm Intelligence platform uses AI to build a ‘hive mind’ in which the decisions of a group of people are much sharper than that of any individual.

However – stay calm, rabid Eagles’ fans − the Swarm AI system also only gives a “slight lean” to the Eagles, with a confidence rating of 5 that the team will win on a scale of 1 to 10, indicating “medium confidence,” Josh Sitzer, chief business officer, told IoT World Today's sister publication AI Business.

So it is still not a slam dunk.

Philadelphia has been thirsting to repeat its first Super Bowl win, which was in the 2017 season against the New England Patriots helmed by Tom Brady. The team also appeared in the 2004 and 1980 Super Bowls, but lost.

Since then, the Eagles team has changed radically, with the eventual departures of quarterback Carson Wentz (Washington), backup quarterback Nick Foles (Indianapolis) who played in the Super Bowl due to an injured Wentz and coach Doug Pederson (Jacksonville).

Current Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts was controversially asked to start games when he was a rookie backup to franchise quarterback Carson Wentz.

As for the Chiefs, the team has two Super Bowls, in 2020 and 1970. They also appeared in Super Bowls in 2021 and 1967 but lost.

AI Makes In-Game Predictions

Swarm AI also made prop bets, or bets on what could or could not happen within the game regardless of who wins. The AI model is predicting that the Eagles will be leading at halftime before winning it all.

With Eagles leading at halftime, Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes will be pressured into passing more and ditching the run game, Sitzer said.

Swarm AI predicts that Mahomes will have more than 25.5 completions.

Moreover, the AI model is predicting that the Eagles’ offensive line will perform “highly” and allow fewer than 2.5 sacks of its quarterback Jalen Hurts, Sitzer said. “This could also be an effect of the Eagles leading the game and primarily running the ball.”

Overall, the game itself will be tight. “All the handicappers see this as a very close game,” Sitzer said.

Here are other prop bets for the game:
