Bing’s NFL predictions for Week 1 include several upsets, and one it missed

NFL football is back, and Microsoft’s Bing has returned with its crystal ball, picking the best bets for Week 1 of the new season and looking ahead to the predicted Super Bowl winner: the (yawn) Carolina Panthers.

For week 1, Bing has also picked three upsets: Buffalo Bills over Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49ers over Los Angeles Rams, and New York Jets over Cincinnati. Unfortunately, Bing already missed one: Carolina, which Bing predicted had a 57 percent chance of toppling Denver at home, lost 21-20 on Thursday night. 

Each year, Microsoft’s Bing search engine factors in historical performances, the location, and other factors to determine the winner of each game. The company also runs simulations of the entire season to try and figure out which teams will make it to the playoffs, and end up on top: Carolina over New England, at this point.
