The Utah Beer Blog 2014 Beer Based Prediction Engine
Given that these teams are so evenly matched up, there is only one true way to gaze into the future and know for certain which team will prevail. I present to you the Utah Beer Blog 2014 Beer Based Prediction Engine.
Beer will be the number one consumed beverage at most Super Bowl gatherings, so it's influence will be substantial. We've come up with a highly developed formula that we spent minutes devising. It is as follows.
Using data compiled from the Brewers Association, Ratebeer & Beeradvocate we will use the following formula. The number of licensed beer manufacturers in the city named for the teams (Seattle/Denver) x each State's per capita beer consumption ÷ the number of home brew shops in the state ÷ that number by 2 (conferences) = winner.
(46 Denver Breweries) x Results for Colorado 33.4 gallons per year ÷ 25 ÷ 2 = score
(32 Seattle Breweries) x Results for Washington 27.9 gallons per year ÷ 24 ÷ 2 = score
We get a score of
Broncos. 46 x 33.4 ÷ 25 = 61.4 ÷ 2 = 31
Seahawks 32 x 27.9 ÷ 24 = 37.2 ÷ 2 = 19
Colorado is a beer juggernaut and Seattle is no slouch in that department as well, but the pints don't lie. Though these teams are evenly matched, beer's influence in the given markets will bring glory to the Denver Broncos.
As in previous years; if this formula proves successful, I will take it globally and use it to predict all aspects of life and become a living god among men. If it fails? It was your lack of faith in beer!
